The frustration...

... of scrapbooking!

What frusterates you the most?

For me it is the fact that there are TOO MANY options! So many colors, themes, ideas...and I have the most difficult time organizing my thoughts. I think I have an idea down, and then I see something else, lol... and the whole thing gets derailed!

I would say I have a hard time thinking of ideas. When I do think of ideas, I am not scrapping, and I never write them down. :confused:

I think for me it would have to be too many options too! Ill spend 2 hours thinking of what paper, embellishments, cuts, etc. to use on a page, then never get to it!! There just went my only free time and I wasted it on decisions, decisions!

The disorganization of my WHOLE AREA!!! My DH moved my space accross the room, upon my request, but only MOVED it. I have yet to organize any of it. And now Ive taken over "his" desk that he brought back from his office at work and put in our office at home Wink

My other one is money and space...if we had both I could get my space organized ALOT better. Shelving and bins would help SO MUCH!!!

GREAT question! For me it's having too many photos to do and not near enough time. I really want to get to the point where I'm scrapping things that happened even a month ago..not several years.

Lack of time and lack of space to work. Seriously. I need a house to have a space of my own. I told DH if we buy a house, I'm taking over the laundry room for a scrapping space of my own.

Disorganization of all my stuff - I know I have a ton of great stuff to use, but I can never find it in a timely manner.

My biggest frustration is keeping all my digital stuff organized. My hard drive quickly filled up, so I put everything on CD's. Now I have a bunch of CD's, but really can't remember what elements/papers/etc go with what kits.

My disorganization!

I can't even work on my table cause it is so covered with odds and ends. Makes it hard when you have to assemble pages on your lap and can't find anything that you need!

Also that I am so far behind.

Did you steal that from my brain? I really need to reorganize our front room where my scrapping area is. It's cluttered with office and kid stuff...
