What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday | 197

Welcome to another Wednesday Workdesk! On Wednesday, crafters near and far snap a photo of their corner of the world to share with Julia over at the Stamping GroundIt’s been several weeks since I participated last. I have missed checking in!

This is what you can see in my corner of the world:

This project comes from a Big Picture class that I took back in 2011. Now, finally, I am finishing the album. Two years later. It’s been in my unfinished pile for awhile. I had already created all the layouts and loved them. I just needed to finish the journaling. This is a good time to be reminded not to let things go. I’m sure that the original intent of the journaling was lost two years later, but I’m glad this will finally be finished today, regardless.

And my second big task for today:

Putting this stack of layouts in their respective albums. While it is quite satisfying to see a pile of layouts like this, I probably shouldn’t let the pile grow so tall. Today, they get organized and put away!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Nice peek at all your projects! I’ve got a pile of pages that need a home, too.

    • It’s a good problem for a scrapbooker to have! 😀

  2. Yay for finishing unfinished projects! Your album looks very cool! Which class was it?
    I have a basket of those. I do keep up with my layouts though.
    Have had too many accidents in the past to keep them out of page protectors too long :-O

    • I’m really regretting this stack. Some of the pages are all warped. But it’s not the worst thing in the world so I can live with it.

      The BPC class was iScrap with Stacy Julian. I was a fun project and now that it’s done, I really like how the album turned out. 🙂

  3. Congrats for finishing an album! I know it feels good to move it from the “to do list” to the “done” list. What size is that album?

    • It’s an 8×8 album and I used an American Crafts modern 3-ring album. 🙂

  10. Great post! I have to finish my iScrap album too but have hesitated because my perspective is very different two years later. I didn’t want to mix up current vs past perspectives on the prompts. How did you do yours?

    Reply
    • Yes, that was my exact problem. I’m sure when I put the pages together two years ago I had specific intentions for the journaling but never wrote the idea down. So when I started the journaling now, I just tried to put myself back where I was then, thinking about what was happening. If I could remember what I thought I wanted to say, that’s what I journaled. If I couldn’t think of anything, I just wrote what I feel now. I know it’s not the best way — I should have stuck to it and finished two years ago. But at least it’s done now and I really do like how it turned out!

      Thanks for stopping by. Good luck with your album!

  14. Well done, the journalling is so important, that however far after the intention, it’s great that you’ve done it, celebrate a huge achievement! Love to see the pile of LOs like that, I file mine almost immediately and so I consider this a luxury of slightly ‘wallow’ time where you can look back on them and enjoy them just as you did while making them up. Lovely!

  15. Oh you have to be sitting on top of the world getting both those tasks accomplished. The reason I hate to file a big pile of layouts away is that inevitably I have to move some other layouts around inside albums (some of mine are post bound) and then that leads to needing to repair an occasional page where a doo-dad or two has fallen off. I did manage to get caught up during my studio redo, but I haven’t made any pages since. I’ll have to hop over to Scrapbook Update and see what you have done over there too.

  16. I know what you mean about making yourself finish. For me journaling is either really easy or really hard. Good luck with your completing your tasks. 🙂 April #110

  17. I need a close ups on each of those. I see some really cool layouts in there.

    • Ah, thanks! I don’t post every layout I create, but most of these have been posted on the blog over the last few months. 🙂

  19. Looks like you are finishing up an i.scrap album! I finished mine during class & have really enjoyed having my journaling about 2010 as it was a difficult but good year in our lives.
