I did it!!

I did it! I finally finished going through my "to-be-scrapbooked" pile. I am almost all caught up. I still have a few photos that I am waiting on to arrive from Shutterfly and once they get here, I will be able to add a few pages and say that I am ALL caught up (except my vacation of course, but that's another story).

I have decided to continue with this album until our anniversary in August. That way, it will contain everything from our first three years. After that ... this scrapbooking thing is going to change. I have decided that I will stop trying to document everything because that is when the hobby I am supposed to love becomes a chore I dread. Instead, I will be very selective about what I scrapbook and document major highlights rather than every single event. I have also thought about doing a few themed albums that capture highlights of our lives (such as a ABC album, Christmas album, Family album etc).

For now, I am happy with my progress. I completed over 40 pages since last week. Most of them are pretty plain and boring but at least they are done and the memories are preserved!

I guess I probably shouldn't be bragging about how much scrapbooking I have done considering yesterday I wrote about how unproductive I have been when it comes to school work, BUT, I did get a start on my proposal last week and I WILL have a draft to my advisor by next Wednesday. So, there. I hope you all have a great weekend! I'd love to hear what you are up to.

I bet that's a relief! I don't even want to think about how many years behind I am!

I totally understand how you feel! I always feel totally accomplished after I've finished scrapping. Too bad it's been months and months since the last time I did!
