Week 10 ... WOYWW

Wednesday has come round again and I'm ready to report on my desk and my own progress ....mojo wise.
After having a mojo famine, I tried an experiment ...fueled by Julia's thoughts on the subject of creating. Instead of pondering long and hard over one LO, as I normally do, and having other LO ideas fly in and out of the space between my ears but rarely managing to stay there ... I decided to work on several LO at the same time, moving papers around between a group of selected photos. The idea is to think about them all at the same time. When it comes to journalling and embellishments the same sort of process applies. I suddenly realized that it is exactly what my daughter ...and probably most of you do ... when preparing for a crop. I however don't ... I seem only take the bits for one and maybe a half done one to finish. Most of my time at a crop is spent chatting... yes I am one of those irritating people that can put you off attending again ... but I do try to chat about scrapping lol.
The result has been interesting as I only started yesterday. So far I have prepared ...4 SLO's and a double .... by tomorrow they should be 3/4 done and ready to post by Saturday ...well that's the theory. If it works I will have done more than I have ever managed in less than a week. I have to say that they all have a heritage theme.

Now ... for those of you who have a weak disposition and are naturally ... or compulsively... tidy

This is my area at the moment ...I have just left it to do this . I have bagged them up by LO ....just in case a feline, or two, decide that they are comfy enough to sleep on.

Last but not least ...Ben and Jake went to Ireland for a holiday, to visit their other Nana and these are three of the photos I was sent ...there are so many ... you may get more later.

Not sure why the first two are small !!!!

Hopefully I will be back in a few days, with lots of LO's done

Take Care xx

Great idea to work on a few LO's at the same time! it seems to be working and fingers crossed you'll have them done my the weekend :) Ben and Jake look like they are loving the beach and those monster dressing gowns are so sweet!!!

Sarah said...

I am exactly the same - 1 LO at a time, and that takes me at least a week - look forward to seeing how many you complete.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Angie, looks like you're really turning that theory into a real life run with it result! Go You!
But bring the babies with you - they are soooo lovely - had a butchers at a couple pics of them on Jay's blog last night!

Jocelyn said...

Yay for you!!! Trying something different!!! When I attend a crop I always preplanned pages and never got them all done...because I love to chat too!!! I would spend more time being social than scrapping!!! The boys are so adorable.....Can't wait to see what you come up with!!! Happy Wednesday!!!! Love and smiles to you!!! :)

OMG those boys are just too cute!

At crops i just drink tea and eat cake, I thought thats what everybody did lol My bag rarely even gets unpacked no matter how many projects I take with me.

I love the pix of your family - so cute. And your desk looks the business LOL!

Ann said...

This sounds like an idea I ought to try. Sometimes a LO can take me all day. Perhaps this method would take me longer, but avarage out at less time per page - if you see what I mean?! Scrapping's always good fun, although I no longer go to a scrap club.
Ben and Jake look to be having good fun too.
