Happy Tuesday!

Lots of pictures again this week – mostly from our fun Sunday with friends.

I got to do a little work last weekend on my Project Life album but I have to say, being 5+ months behind in putting stuff IN the album is quite a mountain to tackle. I have all sorts of stuff – receipts, pictures, kids’ schoolwork, etc. but it is just SO MUCH stuff that I got overwhelmed on Saturday and after spending a couple hours sorting and organizing I just had to quit.

I realized one thing – this is a much easier project to do if you do it on a weekly (or daily) basis than if you try to go back and catch up.

I think what I’m going to do is start with June 1st, get everything from that point forward put in and fixed like I want it.  Then I will do my darndest to keep it up to date on a weekly basis (and share with you here) by printing my pictures & putting them in the album every Saturday (that’s the plan anyway).

Then I will catch up the March – June pages on a weekend retreat I’m going to be at in a few weeks.  It’ll be a good project to do that weekend because I won’t be distracted by kids, cooking, etc.

For those of you doing Project Life, too, what works for you? I’d love to know how you keep up without getting overwhelmed. Last year I did a lot of digital pages and a little bit of PL/P365 and ended up doing a combined album. I wasn’t thrilled with it, but my photos were scrapbooked and everything documented.  So, I just let it go.

If I can’t get this one caught up, I think I may just go with an all-digital project.  I’m finding that I’m just not into the mess and dealing with the paper projects anymore. I get disconcerted by the bits and bob (where I used to be thrilled with all the stuff gathered around me)

Anyway, here are this week’s pictures:

Monday: Scooby Cat’s new favorite place to sleep – right in the main traffic-way in the kitchen!
