    Default scrapbooking

    I have so much desire to get my scrapbooks done. i have purchased lots of supplies..i always forget to do it! for all you scrapbooking mamas...when do YOU find the time? do you schedule it in? do it at night time when kiddos are in bed?....i think it is such a great keepsake of my kids growing up. and of life.

    I do scrapbooks for Christmas gifts. I make the one scrapbook 3 times-1 for me and 1 for each of the grandparents. I just finished making 2010's last night, so a little late I know!!! But each book had 55 pages!!

    I do craft stuff after kids are in bed. I never just sit and watch tv....I have a crochet hook or embroidery needle in my hand or something.

    My goal this year is to not leave the scrapboking till December!!! I goal is to do some about 4 times a year-after ds's birthday, just before summer, just after summer, then then finish the rest in December. Crossing my fingers!

    I am way behind in mine. I don't have a great space in my house to work on them. I can't do it when both kids are awake. I don't have any great suggestions!

    I scrapbook at night when the kids are in bed, but I haven't done anything in the last month or so. Lately I've just been too tired and fall asleep early!
    I get the most done though when I actually go to a crop.

    A crop is basically an event where a bunch of scrapbookers get together and just scrapbook! My neighbour is a Creative Memories consultant and organzies crops so I go once in a while and it's amazing how much you can get done when you have some uninterupted scrapbooking time like this!

    We should get a room at the library again once a week in the evening for a mom's night out and everyone can bring there stuff and get a couple pages done.

    I haven't touched my stuff in over a year.

    For Christmas I got digital scrapbooking software and have fiddled with it a little bit, but it still isn't getting done.

    Perfect! That is closest for me to. What nights work best for you? I can't do Tuesday, but am available most other nights. There is that little room on the side we could use.
