Busy with Basic Grey

Well,I might just be back in the swing-of-things. After my last blog post, I went into my scrap room and started to clean and organize. And it worked! I felt my fingers itch to start scrapping again.
While I was sorting my stuff, I realized that I have an embarrassing amount of Basic Grey papers!!
 So this is what I've done the last couple of days; scrapping and trying to make a dent in my BG stash.

These are all photos from 2009 (when we lived in CA) and I'm almost done with that album.
And do you know what that means? I can start focusing on LAST year's photos. I never,ever before been this CAUGHT UP with my scrapping. I guess my new years resolution is paying off:)


I'm thinking I should have a giveaway soon, so stay close:)

Pin It!

How sweet, funny about you going through your papers as I did that today and I have an amazing amount of My Minds Eye LOL..
I love all your pages :)

WOW!!! You did get your mojo back. Wish something like that would happen to me. I guess I'm kinda stuck downstairs with an ailing dog. He tore something in his knee and had to have surgery. He was to be kept crated, but I gave his grate away about 9 mos ago. So I am glued to his day all day until he has healed. He got his stitches out today, so that one step closer to me getting up to my craft room soon.

Any chance you could do a video of you just sitting down and getting started on a project? I have to do a sketch or have someone elses sketch in my hands before I get started. I just can't sit down and scrap. Thanks

Seeing your LO's really makes me want to go back to Frisco and visit again. I missed getting a photo of Lombard St. I don't have my own pics of the Painted Ladies... besides the fact my photo taking abilities have vastly improved from 14 years ago!! You definitely did get your mojo back!! Great pages!!!

I love your work, I find it very inspiring....I especially like the One Fine Day's in my favorites for inspiration. Keep whole crafting mojo left me a few weeks ago, and I am just doing the bare minimum of sewing right now. Hopefully I will be back in the game soon. TFS.

I'm in the same boat! Scrapping in my space isn't easy and I feel I need to do some reorganization and moving furniture around. You have given me hope! Love the layouts, particularly "the city", the borders are amazing! Thanks for the inspiration to get moving!

No such thing as an embarrassing amount of BG. More like an enviable amount! Love your new LO's!
