I literally spent 2 solid hours sorting through 2 boxes of pictures and putting them in photo albums today. My guess is that there were between 750 - 1000 pictures.
And you may be wondering why on earth they were in boxes to begin with.
Because way back when I was in a mommy's group we had a scrapbook get together (probably 3 1 /2 years ago). Now I had never before done any type of scrapbooking and didn't know much about it, but I really liked the end product. After that party I came home and emptied 5 years worth of photo albums and made sure they were sorted by month and year. Now that was a lot of work and I had a huge project on my hands.
Looking back I probably shouldn't have started with that amount of pictures. I was completely overwhelmed.
Guess how many scrapbook pages I have done since that fateful scrapbook party?
None. Well, one if you include the one I made during the party.
(Here's the top and bottom half that I attempted to scan in.)
I priced the supplies and just couldn't bring myself to make that sort of financial and time commitment.
After this recent Christmas I bought some really nice photo albums from none other than Marshalls. And today I decided to tackle the photo boxes once and for all.
Some are not exactly in sequential order like a family picture of the three boys, then one of me completely pregnant, but for the most part they flow.
And that is good enough for me.
