2015 Scrapbooking/Photographer plans? Anybody?

A post…. hey a post!   No pictures this time though (is that legal)?  Sometimes I think the pictures keep me from posting – even though I love taking pictures – it just adds enough “extra” time that I end up not getting a post written.

So here’s today’s thought.  I put this up on facebook on my page wall & in my chat group (hey come like & join both please!)

What are your plans for 2015? Mine is to actually pull out some paper, maybe finish baby albums. For yearly documenting I am just taking pictures at this point…. trying to be intentional about capturing memories, posting to instagram/flickr/facebook with comments so that someday I have that “journaling” to go by.

I have seen a few scrapbookers who were hard core Project Lifers abandon it this year! I think what’s happening to them is they are designers, scrapbookers who liked the simplicity of PL, but ended up just designing very detailed pocket images/pages! That’s more work than they were doing before! Several are shifting to a monthly layout in various forms. I still like the PL concept for those who can stick to the kits…. I have always had a hard time with that & tend to add alot to mine…. thus never finishing!/

Here are a few posts…

Disney album next steps

Worked on the Disney album a bit more this week!  I took all of my printed photos (that I organized here) and  sorted them into their proper organization & started populating my album with “stuff”.   I had some help taking photos for you…. I cannot wait to finish this album for him!   His interest in everything we did a year ago is awesome and I want to finish it for him so he can hang onto all of his wonderful memories (that we all know are so fleeting at his age).   He of course still had jammies & bedhead when I was taking the pictures – but that’s real life on a weekend!

Disney Album Organization

Well, it has been a while – and I am sorry!   I made quite a few things lately – but I may not blog about them yet.  I even have a blog post about the Christmas Stockings I made for us this year all written up – I will try to post it closer to when people will be thinking about Christmas projects again!

It has been a year (seriously – how is that possible!) since we went to Disney.   I sooo would love to go back – but it wouldn’t be the same – we have our Disney “wish” (aka Sam), Andy is older etc.  I have run across pictures of Andy at Disney a few times lately & I am astonished how much he’s grown up since last year!   Yes – he’s bigger physically – but he just looks so much more grown up & he’s becoming a boy and less a pre-schooler.  I am so glad we went when we did – he hadn’t hit the big whiney stage quite as intensely yet but MOST importantly – he LOVED Mickey with all of his heart & soul!  He still likes Mickey & Jake & the other Disney shows, but Star Wars, The Hobbit, superheroes &  Wild Kratts (especially those guys) have crept up in importance.
