Tally of my year: up to today.

i am wrapping up the year here...and gearing up to do my daily december.
one of the things that i really want to work at is spending quality time with my family. december will be a barely scrap month for me and i will be only scrapping my daily page about whatever we got done. the kids are getting older and i am feeling that i want to hold on to whatever bits of childhood are left:)
here is the grand total of stuff i have done for the year 2010:
January: 46 pages * 198 pictures
February: 41 pages * 174 pictures
March: 88 pages * 336 pictures
April: 59 pages * 261 pictures
May: 19 pages  * 82 pictures
June: 34 pages * 126 pictures
July: 60 pages * 189 pictures
August: 50 pages * 211 pictures
September: 50 pages * 197 pictures
October: 56 pages * 254 pictures
November: 56 pages: * 260 pictures

total: 559 pages and 2.288 pictures absolutely and positively scrapped and finished in 2010:)

this, of course, isn't counting minibooks and gift books and other misc. projects that i made this year. digital scrapbooking opened up a whole new world of possibilities. LOTS of new things to discover and explore in the new decade:) YAY!
and that is where i am AT:)

33: lots of scrapping for other people.

i have been doing a lot of scrapping  for others these days:)
here are some of them....but trust me, there are about 20-30 other pages.
and it is all good.

44: a special page.

i have been growing a LOT lately. i feel that my forties are my grown-up teenage years.
lots of life lessons, lots of learning about myself and my family.
i am trying new things and getting out of my box. one of the things that i am trying to learn about is photography. the impatient, ADD side of me gets frustrated because there is so much to learn, so many techy things to process. and the creative side of me wants results things NOW, patience is indeed a virtue and i am trying so hard to learn how to deal with myself.
it is a journey indeed.

50: paper pages.

very minimal pages combining digi and paper. i bought a martha stewart landscape album for 4.99 @ marshall's a while back.
there's a lot of trial prints and stuff lying around so i thought that i would combine them in this album.
i also have a bunch of 8x10's and 5x7's ao i am going to put these in there. @ this point in my scrapbooking i am just filling in the holes and keeping up with the present:)
it's a good place to be!
