So ... I'm gonna try to do a schedule

I've been so sad that I haven't had the time to scrapbook. I'm just way too busy with the photography and the kids and the house. With the photography, I have to edit, and then I get distracted by the internet, so it takes me forever. I swear I have ADD, and one of these days I should go get diagnosed for it. Anyhow, I was thinking about it today, and realized that I have the power to change things. I decided that I will pick two days a week to scrapbook during my free time (which probably means on days Natalie is in school, as she doesn't let me get much done in terms of scrapbooking) - Friday is definitely one of those days. I'm not sure what other day I will pick, probably Monday. And then I should focus two other days on photography editing, despite my desire to do it every day.

I thought if I posted here about it, that makes it official. Smile Motivates me, so to speak.

Look for layouts from me tomorrow! I have to make another birthday card, but I also want to start the progressive page plus get another layout under way. I figure I have two hours when Natalie's in school, and then maybe I can squeeze in another hour after lunch.

Wish me luck ...

That sounds good Gwen! This is kind of what I do...I devote certain days and certain slots of time to things like scrapping, reading, whatever. But then I'm a scheduler big time, so that's me by nature. Smile

Plans are good. They make you have to be more efficient at your time. This will be great... we'll help remind you. Smile

Maybe that's what I need to do. I am so tired after work, and cooking dinner. I hope it works for you. You'll have to let me know okay?

I have to leave in less than two hours to get Natalie .... I'm in my corner, and I've started the card. But I really have to try to avoid looking at this computer, it's stealing time! But I had to turn it on for the progressive scrap thread ...

I think this is great and I have to do something very similar. I haven't had time to scrap in so long and I am trying to find a way to keep the house clean, make some money and scrapbook as well as ( obviously) keeping both children fed, clean and played with. I think we need a few more hours in a day!

I need more than a few!

Decided that I'm way too far behind in editing to take tomorrow as a scrapbook day. Must catch up on the editing but I'm also determined to scrapbook twice this week. Sure hope I can do it!

I think 2 a week sounds like a good plan. I am so far behind that I need to try for one a day lol. I really want to get Jamie's book close to up to date so that I am not scrapping his 2 year old pictures when he is 10.

ugh, this is so sad that I haven't even been able to keep this up. granted, Thanksgiving travel threw a wrench into things. I hope to be back to my plan this week. I did spend some time on a layout today, but only had about 40 minutes to work on it. really hope to get that finished on Wednesday when Nat's in school. I finally figured out what Christmas gifts I'm going to make so now I have to add that creative time to my schedule too. not enough hours in the day!

I can't even imagine how you find time to eat with 4 kids! Seriously. I have 2 and can't find time to do anything. I really wanted to try to do a layout a day for a while and get a little caught up, but it isn't happening. I have had time for 4 layouts in 4 weeks. lol.

I hope you are able to find the time to get it all done! I am going to try to make some to-do lists and see if it helps me out.
