One of the things she has done recently is to begin using lists on her blog -- and I really like that idea -- since I make lots of lists -- I see no harm in copying her ideas for lists -- so here we go.
I'll cop to it.
I'm copying her brilliance.
Project Ideas for 2011 -- because I really am going to scrapbook more in the future. (Some of you need to stop snorting with laughter.)
I don't believe in setting goals for my craft, such as "I want to make X number of pages in 2011". I don't care about quantity...I just want quality scrapbook pages that I enjoy and that tell my stories. So, here are the top 7 or 8 projects I intend to work on this year...
Crusie Scrapbooks for Cruises #2, #3 and #4.
This, my friends, is going to be a huge task...but the only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time right? I tend to overthink travel scrapbooks by plotting out these 40-50 page, cover-every-detail-use-every-photo monstrosities. I have to take the dead computer to the computer miracle guy to even get the pictures from cruise #2 printed. I have an Iris box for each trip containing all the "stuff" and all the notes...so it should be pretty easy to pare down and possibly combine all three cruises into one book.
Other Travels that have yet to be documented -- Maine, Virginia, San Antonio
Grey's School Book -- he's in the second grade. I have not even started. Epic mother fail. Must correct that before he graduates college.
A summary of 2010 -- I would like to make a photo summary of the highlights of 2010 to hang in my scrap space. I haven't changed out the layouts hanging in my space since the year we moved into this house. Bad scrapbooker, I know.
Andy -- When my brother, Andy was wounded in Afghanistan, I wrote a-l-o-t. I think I might like to scrapbook some of those thoughts, along with the few pictures I have that were taken during that time. These may not be for public consumption...
Life with Joal -- Joal and I will celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary this year. Twenty years. More than half my life has been spent with this man. I would like to have some pictures made of us and think about some of the things we've done together over the years, how we've changed, etc.
So now you know...these are the things I want to work on in 2011. Feet to the fire, right.
