Resolution 8: Organize digital photos and finish scrapbooks

The eighth of my eleven New Year's Resolutions is to organize our digital photos and finish my physical scrapbooks.

I started scrapbooking right after high school graduation and I have regretted it ever since. I'm not a very crafty person, and the cutting, pasting, stickering, decorating and designing are like punishment. As such, I've got one almost-finished scrapbook and one half-finished scrapbook and a shoebox full of supplies. If I could just focus on it for a little bit, I could finish both and get rid of the supplies.

Along with this, I'd like to organize our digital photos and other files and develop a naming convention for them (we have a good backup system, but there's no point in backing up stuff we don't care about). Peanut has been given the task of combining and organizing all of our music files.


  1. Oh man, lucky you only have a shoebox. I started scrapbooking a book of my semester in Italy (3 years ago) and still have yet to finish it. It's just so much work pulling all the stuff out and organizing. I've vowed to finish it this year and possibly get rid of my stuff (3 boxes), so I don't feel inclined to purchase any additional stuff!

    Good luck!

  2. I just went through my scrapbook supplies today and cleaned them out. After 4-5 years of letting them sit there...I decided it was time to give up and let go!
