must have been a mental block. how did i miss almost the entire month of july when i did my last persnickety prints order?
who knows. but july needed to get done before i ended up at christmas.
so even though i am almost done with september, i have all the pictures i need to complete july.
but here’s what we have so far:
are you caught up? i find it easier to stay about 4-6 months behind. mainly because i have to scrap in chunks and can’t dedicate time every week to stay current. and i’m totally okay with that. part of the fun for me is reliving the past months and seeing it with new eyes.
how do i keep track of what happened though? as far as pictures are concerned i organize by month on an external hard drive. if you’re curious about this process, see this post i did on organizing pictures for scrapbooking.
for the daily details, i rely heavily on facebook. i go back in my timeline to recall little things the boys said or did and also to help refer back to when certain events happened.
for trinkets and loose items, i keep a 3-ring binder with pocket dividers. each month has their own divider and if i have something i want to include in my project life pages, i just toss it in that monthly folder and it’s there when i get to work on that month. this way nothing gets lost. see this post for how i keep track of all the other items that make it into my scrapbooks.
i’m thinking that maybe i need to blog about this process in greater detail. would anyone want to hear about that?
thanks again for stopping by and i hope you found some inspiration today.
