Progress

This…
003
Has been reduced to this…
001
Whiskey is very proud of me.
The plan is to sort them by three categories:  page layout ideas, journaling ideas, and technique ideas.   I’m trying to use the KISS principle.  I tried to do the sorting while I was reducing, but kept putting pages on the wrong stack.  I guess I’m not as good at multitasking as I thought I was!

James spent the day with me yesterday, recuperating from a chest cold.  He wasn’t much help, though.  His only contribution was to lay around and play with his lego’s.  Oh and make me smile every time he grinned at me and I looked into his big brown eyes.  The bear hugs were nice too.
Stay tuned…

wonderful progress!! I liked how you decided to organize them in those categories and it does reduce the clutter to something more manageable! It does get confusing too I know with stacks, sometimes I put something in the shred stack and then realize "nope, got to keep that". But good for you for making that progress!! Hope James feels better today, but glad you were able to be there for him when he needed that day to hang out with Grandma!!

enjoy today!

This is going to feel so good when you are done with this project. Great job so far. :)

I hope James is better. He sure has the charm!

Don't under estimate the power of a smiling child and some bear hugs... Those smiles and hugs might have been the only thing between you getting it done, and you pulling your hair out and throwing in the towel!

Love seeing others progress, it makes me want to get started on my own project. Almost. Ha ha. I certainly need to get started, spring is on it's way and I'll be wanting to go outside. James is a cutie, hope he is feeling better.

Once a year I clear out my magazines holder and do the same thing.

Bear hugs are way more important than organization, so I'd say you had a very productive day.

I'm been organizing and trying to get rid of stuff myself. Must be the weather!

I hope James is feeling all better. Marty loved playing with Legos.

I can see why Whiskey is proud of you. :) You have the ideas, now all you have to do is whittle away at the articles and make your projects come alive. Will be waiting to see what you have up your sleeve. :)

I totally agree with Tori.

You really make a short stack out of that leaning tower of magazines!
