I am feeling very overwhelmed.
My twins are 7 and I am just now starting to scrapbook. I feel overwhelmed with the task of "getting caught up". Seems impossible.
I am starting with my pregancy. I am on month 7, so I am almost done there. But I am having a hard time with going back so far. I want to do it and I will but I don't feel as inspired to do their earlier years.
Here is my question. Are you a late to scrapbooking too? If so, how did you talk yourself into going back? There are sooooo many early pictures and memories I want to scrap. How did you do it? What did you do?
I am thinking of doing multiple small pictures on a page per month of their first year. Then beyond their first year just scraping milestones, holiday/birthday, vacations, funny memories, etc.
I bought a school years kit for when they started school, that will help. But even then I have lots of pics outside of school.
I have over 8,000 pics!
At this moment I am avoiding continuing. I am a type A personality and have a hard time getting going on things that are overwhelming. I have a need to do things perfect or not do them at all. All or nothing.
Maybe I need to give myself permission to scrap the pictures very simply with few scraps and embellishments. Just get the pictures and journaling into an album until I get to a point that I am more caught up and can spend more time on my layouts.
Looking for encouragement and thoughts about how some of you may have started with so much to go back and capture.
Thanks in advance
