So everyone is prone to it especially us crafters you know when you buy everything you need for that special project and lo and behold four years later the project still isn't done?
Well today I finished up my son Beau's 8x8 pregnancy album. These are the last two pages. Time wise you can say it was timely as he is only ten months old! I was worried about it because I am having another baby in three short months. Of which I have no idea what I am going to do for her, heck I cannot even find a name. Poor thing. So as I reach the momentous culmination of this small project it made me think of all the booms and bust in my crafty life.

a ZILLION scrap booking pages
Of all my achievements I am most proud of my ABC album. It was a lot of work and it was hard to keep motivated but I love how it turned out. I think when achieving big things that having a goal is important. How many projects have I spent my money on without a clear idea what it was going to be or when it needed to be done and now the materials is just junk too important to throw away and not important enough to get back to work on, well the exception might be my Wedding photo album.
So as I finish up the small album I really want to get caught up in my scrap booking. I did the unthinkable and counted out the pictures I had printed and sorted them into "pages" and I had pictures for 142 pages not counting any new pictures taken/printed. So how can I catch up? One page at a time. Where as a goal of 47 pages a month seems insurmountable, two pages a day, seems easy enough. Especially since I have been doing that recently. Even if I do HALF that many that is 20 pages which will at least put a dent in my back log.
So what are your August goals?
Do you have any Bust projects you can finish and redeem yourself one?
What Boom projects are you proud of?
