This is so annoying.
I have so many projects rattling around in my head. I’m keeping up with scrapbooking just about every week, for Ali Edwards’ Yesterday And Today online class. Mind you, I’m not doing the layouts as she specs it out in the “How To” part of each class. Her style isn’t my style. I don’t want to do layouts like that. So instead, I’m doing the layouts in my own style, but using what I’ve learned in the class. I figure that’s good enough.
Besides that, while watching her class lesson last week, she showed an album she did for her son, with a 2 page layout for each important person in her son’s life. It contained a picture of the person and a bunch of random facts about that person. Now I SOOOO want to do this for H. I have the supplies and everything. It’s a mini book, and I have an unopened mini book from 7Gypsies sitting upstairs in my stash. I could so do this!
And then…and then….I haven’t yet scrapbooked any of the pictures for H’s baby book. Mind you, it’s a non-traditional baby book. I’m not doing the old standby boring baby book. (Yes I have one and I’m filling it out, but not pasting pictures in it. It’s BORING.) No, I’m scrapbooking the information, along with other things to do with her babyhood, as I feel like it. So really, there’s no pressure. I should just be done by the time she’s like…30 or something.
Plus there’s my grandpa’s Brazil travel book I’m half way through and haven’t touched since 2008.
Now, to top this all off….Becky Higgin’s Project Life came in the mail today. No I’m not crazy and doing a photo a day. I’m highlighting whatever happened in that week. So I’m shooting for a couple photos a week, and that’s about it. Then I’ll print and put my photos in the page protectors and layouts. It’ll be fun! I…took the plastic off the box, so far.
But see, here’s the big problem. I rather feel like I shouldn’t be allowed to do any of this stuff. I shouldn’t take any time right now to do anything fun and enjoyable for me. Why? Well…instead shouldn’t I be pounding the pavement? I’ve got things in the works and appointments and stuff. But I almost feel like I shouldn’t do anything fun until I’ve found work. Like that should be my ONLY project. Sigh. I’m going to drive myself insane, is what it is.
