February Goals!

My goal this year was to achieve balance. Part of that was tackling some things that I have needed to do, but really dislike and so have not done. Major one was Memory keeping or Keepsakes! I have not printed out pictures since the advent of digital cameras. Yep. I am terrible. I would so much rather keep playing under the table with the kids.

I have set some goals to get a handle on this area for the month of February.

  1. Buy a flash drive to back up photos.
  2. Look into digital picture frames.
  3. Order an 8x10 photo of Sophie at 3mos for a scrapbook.
  4. Buy 2 new Albums. (I put the kids professionally taken photos in an Album, or will)
  5. Buy a variety of scrapbook papers cheaply.
  6. Make a first year photo book for all 3 kids.
  7. Make a binder for kids special artwork and school papers.
Some ways I intend to accomplish this is to work 10 minutes a day on it. I have found in other areas of my life if I set a time line/limit, that I can handle anything for x number of minutes. I have to say that this has helped me tremendously. It is only the fourth and I have ordered one photobook, the other is waiting for a good deal to come on shutterfly before I order it. So really just need to do the most recent child! And then the other stuff. Sigh. But with only 10 minutes per day, I can see the end. Of course the rest of the last ten years will have to wait for another month! LOL!

Credit where credit is due!

It was honestly killing me that I could not link up to where I first saw this idea for the mobile command center! So after a lot of clicking...I found it! It is was here! Also, I found her through a 21 day organizational challenge on a bowl full of lemons. Toni has the same contact paper as me! And thousands of other Target shoppers I know...don't rain on my parade people!
