Git R Done

Well Hello there Mosh Poshers and Happy Monday. It's Jenny checking in with this week's installment of Manic Monday where the design team shares the ways we fit scrapping into our over-booked, hectic busy lives. I know we each have a story of how we got here. How we got started on this scrapbooking journey. I know for me, it all started in a teeny tiny scrapbook/teacher store in the middle of nowhere in MS after the birth of my first child. At the time I could store ALL of my supplies and tools in a "pizza box".

Fast forward 8 years and my scrapping is an honest-to-goodness obsession that has its own room plus space in two other closets. (Shh about that last part-that's downright embarassing). Add to that five kids and a deployed husband, making the little time I have to scrap stretch is hard! But, it must be done. Over the years I've developed a system. The most critical part of that system is really quite simple. I NEVER work on one thing at a time. I always work on 4-7 pages at a time. That way if I get "stuck" on one page, I can move onto others. Fix a title here, add an embellie here, or write out the journaling on a few when the mood strikes. Here is one of my work stations with 4 layouts in varying stages of completeness...

And a close-up of one done except for the journaling.

This process of mine really helps me make the most of my time between runny noses and laundry. Here's a sneak peek of Tiffany's rak. It'll be in the mail tomorrow. Stay tuned for more fun raks in the near future. Happy Monday!

Love the blog post today, Jenny!!! I would go crazy if I had more than one layout going! I think my head would explode. I just can't think in more than one creative direction at a time. I am in awe of your creative ability! You rock, girl! :)

Jen, you are a girl after my own heart!! I get "stuck" alot and move onto something else. So I, too, have more than one LO going!! Eventually, it all clicks and they get finished. I am glad to know that I am not the only one!! ;)
