Well, really more like 2 1/2 days at this point!

I'm hoping to finish my December Daily, which means ordering pictures today or tomorrow morning at the latest. I think this is doable - it's been coming together quickly once I have the pics printed. (I made my base pages ahead of time.)

I also need/want to make more journal cards for my 2013 PL. I'm doing a DIY kit and I really want to have the bulk of it done before the new year, so I can just grab cards as needed (I want the ease of the core kit, but with my own color scheme!).

Now if only DS would cooperate by taking a nap!

What's on your list for the last bit of 2012?

I haven't even started my December album beyond making the base pages - which is why I didn't call it daily in the first place. So I'll probably get going on that, as well as do a couple more challenges on the challenge thread that was posted yesterday.

Oh, I had so many plans for December. I got some things done as you can see from my siggy but my goal was to double that number of layouts. We still have another week of winter break and I plan on doing lots of scrapping!

Scanning all my childhood photos. I got a tub of photos at Christmas. I am 856 or about 25% down the box.

To find my scraproom. Seriously. It's 3' deep on the counters in some spots, I can't even see one corner of the room. I have one more week off of work with the kids home, I am planning on not leaving the house, buckling down and tackling that sucker! I have stuff from SEPTEMBER that still hasn't been put away! And the ironic thing is, I haven't had time to do it because work has been crazy...I'm a professional organizer.

That's what I was thinking! I should add to my previous post that most of my scrapping plans for the month were set for winter break. We homeschool so it's my break, too.

I'm making a daily gratitude book, so I still have to finish that. Since I'm on a shopping freeze as of the new year, so I need to get my last bit if spending in. that is how it works, right? I also need to get my stuff ready to start my OLW class

I have more now to scrap than I ever did. I just got back from a trip to Europe and I am motivated to scrap those, but there are nearly 500 pics!

Then I have Christmas, and my son's first NFL game, and his fall baseball season...

I would need to scrap 8 hours a day for a month to even think about working on older stuff.

I need to start my daughter's album. She is due in just a few weeks and I have to scrap ultrasound, preggers pics, baby showers and baby preparations so I can be ready to start on her first photos when I get them printed. I was going to put all of this in her first year album but I think I will just do a separate album with the majority of these ( sort of a PL style) and just put highlight photos in her album. S

I'd love to finish my Dec. Daily. I have all the pics printed and I've done the cover. That's all...! (blush) But, I think a simple little mini album should be doable between now and New Year's Day. I need to get it done and start the new year off fresh!

I would really like to get up to date with my Journal Your Christmas pages....and that's about it, really. I am never going to be 'caught up' (what does that even mean?!) so I just go with the flow. I seem to have started sketching again, though....goodness knows where that will take me!

I was really keen to do a project life type thing this coming year but just like last year I have nothing organised or planned and I have not bought anything towards it, perhaps a month by month review might be easier. I have not really done any scraping in the last few months so I have a couple of half finished pages laying around that I need to be finished off.

I only have one day left (I work tomorrow) and I really want to get my 2012 photos organized. I started yesterday with over 7,300 ( new mom alert) and have already deleted over 500, but I still have a long, long wag to go!

I need to finish a calendar. I also need to work on my December album, but I'm going to take my time and enjoy the process. The early part of December was extremely warm here, it didn't "feel" like Christmas. Now it's freezing and we've had snow flurries the past couple of days - time to scrap December!
