Pages and Pages and Pages....
Hello everyone - just a quick post today to share my Wednesday with you. I had plans to go to lunch with a girlfriend. When she called early morning and cancelled, I decided to attack the mountain of "unbooked pages" piled on my dining room table. Seriously, I had 4-5 years of unbooked pages! Embarrassing but true.
I sorted the pages into four piles: Aaron's pages, Bethany's pages, Ian's pages, Doug&Susan pages. I then went through each pile and put the pages in as close to chronological order as possible. Fortunately I do tend to write the dates on the pages!
To give you some idea of how far back Aaron's pages went, I found pages from his first year as a teacher, 2008-2009 school year. I also ran across the pages where Crissie first started appearing in his photos. I had to laugh at one set of pages. Aaron and Crissie had gone to Atlanta to visit one of Aaron's former college roommates. The journaling read: "Aaron & _________ at the Georgia Aquarium as part of Aaron's weekend trip to visit Logan!" Clearly I had not yet met Crissie as her name was not filled in!! LOL.
The pile above shows the books I filled yesterday. Only two of those book already had pages in them. The rest were new!
I still have 2-3 books worth of pages to go - mine and Doug's pages. I did put our trips into their own books. And I started a scrapping adventures album. But all the rest of the pile below are pages from family events, get togethers, or fun times. I just need a few more Close To My Heart album pages and I will be all caught up!!!
I thought you might enjoy this peek into my organization. Can you believe I had all of those pages stacked awaiting albums? So glad I finally hit a couple of 50% album sales!
Thanks for stopping by today.
