I went to a scrapbook "event" today, since it's National Scrapbooking Day! The event ran from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. I've been to a few of these before, so I knew what to expect. I actually spent some time Thursday evening and this morning sorting pictures. I have a huge bin full of pictures dating back to, um, 1996. Yes, the year my son was born. And he just turned 12. Yikes.
I only got about five pages done today! It takes me forever to come up with a plan. I think I have to do some power lay-outs (laying out a number of pages before you actually put them together) before my trip in June. Otherwise, I'll come home from that trip with a few pages per day, and that would just be wrong.
Since I now have a beautiful new computer armoire, I am using my old desk to sort pictures. I have to say, it's not pretty. It's very, very messy. But, I am going to that scrapbooking retreat in Texas in June, and I simply must have a plan in place by then.
Here's the new armoire. I got it FOR FREE from some friends who are completely gutting their home, and are buying all new custom furniture.
Isn't it pretty? It had some dings in it, but I used a brown Sharpie and VOILA, you can't even see 'em now! I have more stuff in there now, and have more to put in, but I think it will keep our family room in better shape.
Anyway, that's all for now. Hope you have a great weekend!
