One of my husbands biggest complaints is that my project list is too big, I over do myself just a little:) And I tend to try and doing them all during the season which has seemed to work out in the past but with a little one running around they have started to pile up. The problem is I see things that I want to make or try, but between work, Gracie and classes my time is rather limit especially during the season. Since we made it thru the Thanksgiving Holiday I have put a lot of time a side for working on photos. I made a scrapbook for my sister-in-law Kristen of pictures from her baby shower, I made Gracie's 1st Birthday Scrapbook, I did an online scrapbook of her professional 6 month and 1 year photos and I am in the middle of making her 1 month. I have put so much time into scrapbooking in the past that I felt that I needed to do the same for each of my kids. I thought there was no way to do the whole year since I have about 2500 pictures and once other kids come into play I doubt I will have the time. So each kids will get a 1 month handmade scrapbook and the rest will be digital scrapbooks.
Even though I love working on scrapbooking, I also like to make time for some other crafts. This year we received an abundance of Christmas cards and I wanted a fun way to display them. A friend of mine suggested checking out Martha Stewart for ideas. It was a simple little project that did not take much time and was really cute. I do not even have them all hung yet but I think it looks so cute.
I mod podged(awesome glue) old
