How do you all find the time to scrapbook during this time of year? I am so swamped that I don't have any extra time and I so want to make some things. Come on, January, lol. BTW, I know during our last VC we talked about doing another one, but did we decide when? Oh, and Merry Christmas everyone; I probably won't get a chance to get back on here until after Christmas :).

I don't know how you all find time either. Between taking care of my LO/work and house work..I don't know when the heck I am actually going to get some time to sit down and try to figure out my PS. I would try to do it during my DS's nap time, but thats usually when I am running around trying to get my house clean and laundry done.

This will be the only time I feel like I have time to do it. We're already done with all but one Christmas gathering, I don't have to cook on Christmas Day and my mom is coming that evening so she'll be helping with P a lot. DH will be home and the house is clean and ready to go so I have a goal between now and Sunday of getting ten pages done! Smile

I try and be productive during his naptime, so after he goes to bed for the night, I can enjoy some time for myself.

Naptime and that's about it. And my house has suffered from it, but that's ok, I'm going back to work in 2 weeks and won't have time then!

I go in spurts. So like right now all Ive done are cards. But before that I made a bunch of blank pages for my bazaar that wasnt fruitful. I have to be inspired, otherwise my pages turn out like crap Wink I am quite crafty so I have lots of different projects going at once. Right now Im embroidering some stuff my gram gave me quite a few years ago Lol shows you my spurts Wink I enjoy doing anything with my hands, so when Im not scrapping Im doing something else. Usually when ds is watching a show, or is busy playing. Or when dh is home and I need a break. Its my sanity time Wink My house also suffers from my crafts, but I dont care too much about it either!

My house suffers from having 3 kids, none of whom ever seem to sleep at the same time. LOL

Crafting is my very rare treat, usually done away from home, and done to help recharge me enough to attempt the mounds of kid induced destruction. So I don't get to craft a whole lot.

Christmas Day has been my first day "off" in ages! It's been so nutty between DD, family visits, sickness, and holiday schedules. It was the perfect chance to let us all relax and I even got to scrap some today. Smile

I don't know when we mentioned doing the next VC. I love seeing the challenges and all the chatter. So I hope we'll have another one soon!

well, I'm in the middle of creating my first layout this month. so I can't help you there, I'm swamped too! I should be sleeping, not scrapbooking.

but normally I try to do it during the day when my older two are at school and my younger two are napping. but Natalie's been fighting naps and Jack's been waking up after really short naps, so I just haven't had quality scrapbooking time. I miss it!

Time to scrap? Um Naptime? And before Patrick is up, but that generally involves getting up around 4:00 a.m. So I don't really recomend that. If it were not for my husband and Stespsons taking Patrick for an hour or two to play with him, I probably wouldn't have gotten my christmas presents done because that's the only scrapping I've done other than making cards here and there for MONTHS now.

A lot of times I work on projects in little 10 minute increments. I leave it out on my work table and work on it when K is playing next to me or coloring. It may take all day to create something, because I just work when I can.

SO jealous that you get a work table. The only safe place would be in my basement and then my kids would be running free. So I have to pack and unpack. Or if I have all the stuff I need, it's a constant moving game. Lately I need to get in a grove. When designing cards, I can't just up and down and keep the mojo.

This time of year i can not find the time to scrap. If it is anything like previous years, the first time i will scrap in 2009 will probably be either February or March.
