Ditto!  Not getting as many pages done as I'd like, but I'm ordering photos and planning out albums.  Basically, prepping.  Can we start over in April?  :)

Don't think I could keep up this pace through April!  But loving the deep dive into creativity. 

 

Of course I never clean my scraproom between pages, so soon it will have to be a deep dive just to find my scrap counter!

Exactly, sometimes it is nice just to move quickly and get lots done.  My sister asked me about this over the weekend.  I told her there was merit in just working through it and not overthinking.  You can always go back later and take a quick second look to make minor adjustments.  I often find one or two of those I want to do when I photograph the layout.  I have found that I am not more satisfied with a page that takes 3 hours versus one done in 45 min - 1 hour.  But I am more than twice as happy when I get 4 layouts done versus 2.

This is my first year doing Calvinball and I love it! I am not getting as much done as I would like, but I am getting more done than I typically would. Calvinball gave me the excuse to spend several hours this weekend scrapbooking! A little sad that I am stuck at work all day today and can't scrapbook though.....

I haven't scrapped nearly as much as I did last year, but I'm gonna hang in here and see the month through to the end! LOL

THIS!!

 

Normally I'd get about 2.5 layouts finished per week, so I love the challenge to really jump up that number.

HOW AM I EVER GOING TO GET ALL THIS MESS CLEANED UP???  I have cork and vellum and pop dots and glitter and an ATG gun that needs loading and all kinds of other stuff covering my table!  I also have 70 layouts done!  Woo hoo!  As I review I find that I didn't do as many of the souvenir/keepsake pages as I'd intended even though I kept a box of those old memories right by my desk.  I did more pages with then-and-now comparisons or pages where I featured photos that I had scrapped in PL format but which hadn't been properly highlighted at the time.  And by looking at everyone else's layouts and seeing all the creative and artful arrangement of photos and embellishments, I definitely got inspiration that helped me improve my layering and design.  I plan to take a few classes in April, take my hubby on a trip to celebrate his birthday and get ready for LOAD in May.....

I've spent a bit filing away my digi layouts and some supplies, but most of it I was cleaning up as I went along . . . desk is clean, desktop is clean . . . and I'm creating today!

I haven't done anything crafty in 2 whole days. I was running a fever yesterday,and today, I'm out most of the day, so nothing will be cleaned or crafted today either. I will try for the 2nd week of April to clean up a bit more.  

 

I finished 93 layouts, so I'm super stoked! excited! ecstatic!

Hope you feel better soon. Expending all the energy scrapping must have worn you down!  All for good cause, I hope.  ;-)
