We're still having fun with our elf---or at least I should say that I am. It's still a silent game.
I saw this idea on another website. It was easy enough to do.
Butch came up with this one. He's much more imaginative than I am.
Uh oh, the television fell on him.
Found him in my car one morning.
The other idea I saw on a website. With all of my scrapbook supplies, it took me about two minutes to make this little sign.
This one I almost didn't find. I'm not the most observant person in the world. We had Steph and Nicky stay for dinner after happy hour on Friday. I was just making toasted ravioli (our Krogers sells them now) and a Caesar salad. When I texted this photo to the girls, Steph told me that Butch thought I would find it when I went to the freezer to get the ravioli. What he didn't know was that I had already moved the ravioli to the kitchen freezer in the afternoon. The only reason I found this was that I went to put some soup in the freezer. As I closed the door, the knitting caught my eye. I opened the door again and saw him sitting there. I laughed out loud!! On second thought, I guess he could have been there in the afternoon and I just didn't see him. Like I said, not so observant.
One of the girls asked about how I was coming up with the ideas. If you know me, you know that I don't do anything on the fly. I made a list!! I walked around and thought of where I could put the elf and just jotted them down. Then, when it's my "turn," I just consult the list. Pretty easy.
We have just a couple more days as I'm retiring him after tomorrow.
I taught organizational classes for scrapbooking around the country---from organizing your space and supplies to your pictures, planning pages and getting ready for a scrapbook retreat.
A few years ago, I developed an in-depth photo organization workshop called "Making the Most of My Memories." Once the pictures were organized in a way that made it easy to access any photo at a moment's notice, "A Year of Memories" was the next natural step.
Each month, I assign a topic and provide a kit of materials. The next month each person shares their layout with the group. It's so much fun to see how everyone interprets the theme and uses the same materials---yet each layout is completely different. At the end of the year, we each have a completed album. We're on year 8 now.
