Organization Progress=Messy Room

Organizing my scrapbook room is slowly very slowly coming along. Anyway, first thing i had to do was clean up the floor so i can work around each stations. so all the papers i have pull out to work on my daughter's album have been put away all scraps went into my scrap drawers, put tools away where they belongs. This is still in progress as I keep working on projects that i need to do such as Thank you cards, birthday card, valentine cards, etc. I'm hoping after this week in completing all projects I can completly focus on organization.
All my papers are store in vertical copper hopper. I sorted paper by colors then type (plain, texture, and PP) then i have two hoppers that i have paper sorted by holiday such as mother's day, valentine's day, etc., and theme such as girls, boys, school, pets, etc. I have christmas in its own hopper bc i have so much of it. I still need to buy more copper hoppers for others paper that are currently on shelves. I will do this after i go through each holder and purges papers that I know i won't use at all.
I sorted my scraps by colors. I'm planning to go through each drawer and cut them down to specfic sizes that i have see several peas do. However, I'm planning to donate them to someone who will use them for cards.
Well that's it for now. Thank for reading.

New layout

Hi, all
I know it has been while. things has been hectic this past week. Here is a Pagemaps page call sketch contest I entered but didn't win :(.

Supplies are all stampin' up products and spongebob came from leftover stash from last project i did.
There is another Pagemaps basic grey double header sketch contest I'm going to try out:
sketch: I haven't decide on pictures yet to do this but need to work on this weekend to enter by Jan 31st.

Pre-birthday Planning

I just want to update--getting things together for my daughter's first birthday party tomorrow. I'm excited--can't wait for tomorrow. It's going to be alot of fun. will post pictures of her party. I was able to do some scrapping yesterday for 45 minutes--that's all my daughter would nap--don't know what up with that lol but I did the journals on computer and print them out on papers. so maybe tonight or tomorrow I can complete five layouts and can put them in her book. I'm almost finish with the pregnancy up to her birthing parts. So next stage would be her monthly pictures and milestones. my goal is to complete her book until the baby come. My next apt is Feb 3rd so we will find out how far along I'm. We can't wait to find out. I'm also going to take picture of Amber hearing the baby's heartbeat for first time. I haven't had a chance to work on the organization challenge posted on two peas--I need to catch up and start working on that. I might ask one of my friend to watch amber so i can do some sorting and rearranging on a saturday. I have to see. I've made a list of what i want to do in room. I will have to post that tomorrow because I'm at my mom's house right now. lol Well, that's it for now.

A short note...

Good morning, everyone! I was able to scrap a little yesterday during my daughter's nap time. I was working on one layout and it was not doing it for me so i rip it apart. Do you guys ever do that? I have done a few like that where i wanted to use the sketch but then it didn't work at all with papers i pick, products i chose then when i put sketch away and do it myself it turns out better. lol I have noticed that with few of my layouts. I'm trying to do the organization challenge but this pregnancy has really taken my energy away. lol I went to bed as soon as my little one went to bed at 8pm. I changed her bedtime routine little. I was finding that she would wake up at 4p for bottle. She is year old now. I started giving her snack at 7pm with her milk and the past two days she has slept all night until 6am. Her normal wake up time. lol I can't believe how our routine is establish by her. lol She is my early bird when i love to sleep in. That's not happening here. I wonder how this second baby will be. lol Will he/she be like their sister or be a late night owl like mommy was. I used to love staying up all night scrapping but since my little one came i don't do that much anymore. I really miss those night. I'm hoping to post some of layouts i have done in the two peas gallery of my daughter's album. That's it for now.

Flu season over??

I'm starting to get over the cold. We took our daughter to doc wednesday. She woke up with bloody nose. She has an ear infection. No sign that she has one. just the runny nose and crankiness. With medicine, she actually slept all night now. She is back to her normal schedule.
The past two nights I actually got my journalings done and already on the layouts. I completed at least 6 of them. Yeah, I'm so excited. lol Still have alot to do yet. Tonight I am preplaning my next set of pictures with paper and embellishment I want to use. I have find this to be easy for me to complete couple layouts at a time plus If I'm going to a crop I can take them with me to work on. I'm so excited about this one layout I did but I can't post until after Janurary 20th. I'm trying my hand on the Pagemap contest. I just love how it turns out. I'm still working on the organizing stage. I haven't even started lol. I'm currently look at paper storage. I need to purchase more copper hopper holders. I'm still working on purging stage as I go. As I'm doing the preplan stage, I've been going thru the papers and pulling out what i know I won't use at all and I'm tire of holding them thinking I will when i won't lol. That's it for now. Thanks for reading.

I have been planning to scrap at night when my daughter go to bed but you know how it is--too tired to do anything. I so need to get caught up on my house chores and other stuffs. One things at time that what i keep telling myself. lol Tomorrow is another day. Still haven't done the journalings yet--hoping too this week. that is one goal i want to do before continuing my other ongoing projects. I have't done any organization yet. so need to start that too. mmm i have some ideas to redo some of my storage needs. I am also starting to purging some things into a box. Going to continue that and then I am planning to email some of my scrapy friends to come over and look thru my box before I donate them to a church group. Well, that's it for now.
