I saw Shimelles latest class on Jo's blog this morning and really don't know how I missed it. It's called Cover to Cover- and she suggests working on our 2012 album. So I toddled off and signed up for the class and have read the prompts I missed and the bonus video and feel really inspired. My scrapbooking has fallen a bit by the wayside this year- and wanted a project that would make me want to scrapbook again.
I also felt inspired by Anne's huge pile of photos earlier this week. I also scrap more when I have new photos to scrap.
So later tonight- I'm going through this years photos so far, making a note of the events that need scrapbooking and all the photos I'm going to need. My 365 photos are going to have an album of their own- but some of those photos will obviously be in the 2012 album too. So I am looking forward to getting a nice pile of photos back from Costco- hopefully tomorrow! The man there knows Guy by name- and always goes to get our photos no matter who is waiting around the kiosks. It pays to be a good customer sometimes!!!!! He knows our orders because I tend to order photos in different sizes for scrapbooking. They do the larger photos quite cheap and sometimes I'll use 9x6 photos. I also print out collage prints of an event. So that is tonight sorted.
Emma is angling for another day off school- she had a bad night last night that I somehow managed to sleep through (dh had to get up!). But I was sooooo short of sleep I think I would have slept through an earthquake. I also slept without the covers- and beginning to think that I just don't like heavy tog duvets- unfortunately dh likes to sleep under tropical conditions and likes the heaviest tog available. I did try to swap the duvet over to a quite thin one- but he noticed!!!!!!
