Baby albums for my sister

Well i was busy a while back and have finally had time to post the two albums i made and put in the diaper cake i made for her for her baby shower.. I enjoyed making these two albums and think they turned out pretty good. She had a baby boy on December 21 and has already filled the albums. One is a onesie that i cut out using my xyron wishblade. I then decorated them with footballs as the theme for her shower was football. The second album was a sleeper that i did in blue and just decorated for a little boy.
I then made a diaper cake using diapers for the bottom layer and then made her receiving blankets that became the second layer. I added a couple wrist toys and some outfits and then put the albums on either side and wrapped it up.
Wish i had made some of these before my son was born but just never had time.
Anyways, i had a busy day with the kids today and now i am exhausted. Need to get some sleep before work tomorrow.
Enjoy the albums.

Finished scraproom!

Well i finally got the scrapbook room just about organized,at least enough to get pictures taken.
Most everything is labeled and put in areas that hopefully i will be able to find. The only thing i would change would be to have paper racks but not too sure where i would have room.
I am really excited to be done. I look forward to hopefully being able to finish some ongoing projects and do so much needed scrapbooking on my kids albums. Not to mention all the wonderful cards i'm making. Not too sure where i am going to find the time, with two young kids and working part time, i just never seem to have the time.
Well here are some photos of my "mostly" finish scrap room. Feel free to leave me some comments or any suggestions are alway welcomed.
Off to put my little boy to bed and then enjoy some gharredelli brownies i just made!

Mini scrapbook albums

Well i have been busy in the scrapbook room this week trying to finish two baby albums for friends as shower gifts. Hard to do a themed album as i made one that was cowboys and dogs. The other album is just a baby album for her third baby. They sure were fun, but looking forward to do scrapbooking for my own two kids.
The room is still in the "reconstructing stages". I am slowly getting organized and at times i am to organized as i cannot find things i have put away frustrating!!!! But i promise to get pictures up soon.
Better go and get some rest. Off to the hospital in the morning to see why i am having some urine trouble post surgery three weeks ago. PLEASE LEAVE ME COMMENTS!

procrastination to organization, needing HELP!

Well, hopefully this is the start of me getting my blog going. Not sure how i am going to find the time to get this going but if i make an effort each day i hope that people will visit it and leave me comments and enjoy everything i have to offer.
My goal for this year is to finish both my kids scrap books before they become ywt another year older!. Procrastination or should i say to many little things on the go all at the same time. If find that i allow myself to start new projects before i finish old ones. Someday i will learn and hope that i finish all my ongoing projects before Christmas 2010!
I did however see a very interesting magnetic calendar made of scrapbook material that i think could become very useful in helping me stay more organized. And not too mention trying to get time to clean and organize my scraproom. Two kids one who is just over 1 and the other almost three, sure keep me busy when i am home and i also work 3 days a week but most of that is to keep me sane.
Enough for now. Soon i will post new posts of how people can help me get my scrapbook room organized, and keep it organized. Looking forward to hearing from anyone with wonderful ideas
