A List Maker's Life: Scrappy To-Dos

Scrappy To-Dos

It's been on my calendar for quite some time, but it is almost here. Next weekend I am going to a scrapbooking overnight that I am not responsible for planning - yay! It will be great to visit, snack, and share ideas. AND I am totally excited about getting at a pile of projects - which is much easier to do as a guest than it is as the hostess.

There is a growing list of cropping projects growing in my planner. It's a mix of digital and traditional paper projects, as my books are also a mix. Here are some of the things I am hoping to catch up on, in no particular order:

~Plan and layout Gibson's 2-3 year old birthday book (traditional)
~Make a gift card type note for Anne Hope's AmericanGirl birthday celebration (digital)
~Put together a 2 page spread of Christmas photos in our Christmas album (traditional)
~Create recipe cards to type up all of the loose ones in my drawer (digital)
~Finish the last 2 page spread in our 2010 family album (traditional)
~Brainstorm a theme for our 2011 album and finish the January pages (traditional?)
~Create a 2011 cover page for the family album (digital)
~Catch up on Gabe's baby book and monthly calendars (digital)
~Put together my birthday page in the K2 Birthday Book (traditional)
~Make 4x6 notecards featuring recent craft projects (digital)
~I also have this crazy dream of creating an eye spy book with a picture of our Christmas tree and individual pictures of each of the ornaments.  Ridiculously I have already taken all of the ornament pictures, but I'd like to cut them each out individually and make little eye spy poems to go with them.  This project might still be on my list in 2021, but if there is time I'll think about it!

I will try to check in after the weekend and let you know what kind of progress I made on my ambitious scrappy to-dos.
In the meantime. I have been playing with an idea for the cover page in our 2010 family album. I saw this on a friend's site and am quite excted about how it has turned out for me.

  1. That will be so fun! Have a great time!

  2. Wow, you are quite ambitious. I too have a list that I am hoping to attack with gusto! I am REALLY looking forward to the time away and can't wait to see how you did your 2011 cover page. : )

  3. Oops, I meant to say 2010 cover page.

  4. I hope that you get to cross lots of those projects off and have an absolute ball doing so. How exciting to have so many creative ideas just waiting to be done.

    Happy belated birthday to you.


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
