The time has come to finally organise myself! I am getting the scrapbooks out!
I wanted something I could give to the kids when they get older that they could each take away when they leave home, a little record of their first year of life!
I started a scrap-book for Jenna-May when she was born and to now have only managed to get to 6 months old – her first christmas.
I’ve also managed to do our wedding and honeymoon which was my first attempt…
Not too bad… maybe I’ll do some more I think… in 3 years time!
But with 2 more children who have NO pages done as yet; I need to pull my finger out! And I have so many other little projects I have which I want to do but I really need learn to do just one thing at a time!! Saying that I am currently reading two books at the moment cause I was too lazy to get my butt back out of bed last night and run downstairs (our room is in the loft) to get the one I already started and left in the lounge! Think I may have an attention problem!!
So the printer was pulled out, ink cartridge found and paper bought. Over 100 pictures were printed and are sitting at the ready! All I need now is to find the time, motivation and the energy to get started.
My only problem is that I once again have no boy bits to make a start on Carter’s book and I still need to actually buy a scrap-book album for both Carter and Tamsin!!
Oh well, first things first – gotta get Jenna’s done! She is now nearly 3 and a half after all!!
But once I get started it is good fun, time-consuming and takes your mind off everything for a couple of hours! And it’s gotta be better than doing the cleaning!
So get your creative side out and have a go… here are a couple of my attempts… I wanna see yours… so send me your link and I’ll check them out!
Ok so the photography isn’t great… I couldn’t find the camera so had to use my phone! Forgive me please!
