Not Quite Christmas
First, there was the choosing out pictures to have printed.
Then, I had to put the pictures in order. I put them in little envelopes by day/activity, so that I wouldn't have to deal with a whole stack at a time. But I also had to write the picture number on the back of each one, so that I could figure them out, and that took a LOT of time. For some reason, the aiming store photo service gave them to me way out of order.
Then I emailed our former admin assistant, who's an avid scrapbooker, and also kind enough that I knew she'd advise me. She did way more than that! She met me at a local crafts shop and showed me the basics, and helped me choose out how to get started. Thank goodness for her help!
Here are things laid out, almost ready to go. And until I finish, I won't be able to use my desk for anything else much. Stupid me.
I spent from about 2-8 Sunday afternoon/evening working on it. And a couple of hours yesterday. And now I've just started day four of the trip. That means two and a half FULL days to go.
I'd have been fine with doing the first couple of pages and being done. But at this point, I want it to be done more than I want to be doing it, so it's not that fun. I have (I think) 29 pages done, and had to buy more supplies today so that I have enough plastic sleeves to put the rest in.
If I can power through for a few hours over the next couple of days, it will get done. Please.
