there is nothing like a little guilt to get you started on a long overdue craft. two weeks ago I shared with you all about my scrapbooks... well, in the search of many books that are done I found out that Bjorn really has nothing. NOTHING! He has no birth book, no first birthday book.... nothing.
so, guilt has set in...
and I have been cutting, cropping, designing and writing all two week a book of Bjorn's first birthday.
It is finally done.... I had to spend close to 5 hours, one Monday, editing and ordering photos to costco (we had over 580 photos to choose from of just his first birthday)... I was proud to have it at 100 when I was done... and after scrapping- I brought it down to about 45.
Tuesday I organized the photos and sorted out my dusty papers collection (knowing full well I have way to much... and WAS NOT going to buy anymore for this book)
By the end of the third night I had 4 pages done.
five nights in~ I was able to add 8 more.
Weekends (even with a sick boy) I did an additional 5 more....
With a goal to have it done by December 1st.....
I can now say.... 28 pages... and
there is now a very pleased boy who has been reading it since he got home from school.
guilt sometimes can get you to do things... that in the end... were well worth it!
