I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

JOURNALING; JOURNALING; JOURNALING....

Hello There -

I have to say that this is the year, yep I have set goals to paper, (phone actually) and this is the year I am going to reach them.

I have come up with a plan and bought a task/goal app for my phone and I have to say so far so good.

First of all, I should let you all know that I love scrapbooking, however, I tend to leave all my journaling for later, along with a lot of my titling.  It is just hard for me to stop the creative flow and journal the page.

I have finished many pages of my daughter's 2 year album volume 2 and volume 3but do not have all the journaling done on the pages.  I am so excited to report that over the weekend I finished journaling 28 pages which completed all the journaling in her volume 2 album and left only a two page spread to complete in order to complete the album.  That two page spread is just waiting for some paper to come in and then will be complete.

It was very hard though I have to admit to sit and journal for a whole weekend.  I set the goal though and I am very close to obtaining it.  I have another 20 pages to journal/title to have her two year albums caught up with journaling/titling.  Goal is to have them done by end of April.  If I stay on track like I am so far, I will reach this goal.

Next goal is to journal/title my Mom and Dad's 40th anniversary album in its entirety.  That will be another long weekend or two.

The goal moving forward is to perhaps acknowledge that I don't like to stop my creative flow but to not let the journaling build up.  Perhaps scrapbook like 6 or so pages and then allow time to journal them all before scrapbooking any more or to simply journal as I go.  Not sure how I will move forward but for sure will have to come up with something.

I will be sharing some of the pages once I get the camera back down in my scrapbook room and can get some pictures going.

If you are struggling with the journaling and have come up with some ideas to keep you moving forward please share them.  If you don't have any to share and are struggling I hope my story helps a little.  I do have to remind my self often, slow and steady and you will reach the end.  I wish sometimes it could be fast and steady though.

Thanks and tune again soon for more updates.

Good Night
Tracy
