My goal--to stay caught up this weekend; after that--we'll see how it goes.




I think that's a perfectly realistic goal too Bev.

I just grab the top ten papers from my stash, choose from that mini-stack, and go.

I print my own photos, so I don't have to figure out what to do about those, and that helps a LOT!

Seriously? Top ten papers, huh. Evidently I need a new organizational system! Hmmmmm, printing out your own photos is a great idea. Do you need a special printer?

I think I just got an idea for the day 1 sketch...Whoo-hoo!!


REMINDER:
If you are playing for a prize RAK and have not already done so, I want to take this moment to remind you before we get too far gone into this challenge, to set up a way to track your # of sketches and post it in your signature. However you want to do it is fine as long as you keep track of the sketches you complete.
This thread is going to get EXTREMELY busy the more we get into the sketches & I WILL NOT BE ABLE to keep track of everyone's progress so I need your help in doing so.
If you choose not to play 4 one of the prize RAKS that is perfectly fine too & you do not need to worry about tracking your # of sketches completed unless you want to do so 4 your own purposes.

Thank you & that concludes this MSC Service Announcement.

I never used a special printer before my MIL gifted me with the printer I'm using now, which IS a photo printer. I just used my regular ink jet printer with photo paper for ink jet printers. Of course, the the better your printer, the better the photo quality, but most of the ink jets out now are decent in terms of print quality.

I keep patterned paper together by manufacturer when I store it - USUALLY. I also keep odd and ends papers sorted by color family (warms, cools, neutrals) and patterns (small, large, polka dots, stripes). Sometimes my system needs a bit of a tweak, but usually it works. Between ten papers, I can usually find four or five that MIGHT work together.

Every so often I go through my paper stacks and sort. It's just about time for me to do that again.
