Just for fun - how many different scrapbook-related projects do you have going on right now? I'm way too ADD to focus on one thing for long, so I have a bunch. Off the top of my head:

- wedding album
- school album for 12-yr-old (which is only up to first grade)
- school album for 11-year-old (Kindergarten)
- December album for 2012
- Project Life for 2013, which I have done ONE week of so far
- homemade Valentine's
- my own baby/childhood album
- my own album from my YA years
- my Book of Me
- anniversary album for my parents
- smash book of things I love
- baby album for my two-year-old
- and catch-up scrapping for the last many years of pictures

Phew! I won't run out of options for a loooong time!

How about you?

-FL album

These are 3 separate trips)
-CO 1 album
-CO 2 album
-CO 3 album

-Kauai album
-Niece's graduation album
-Last cruise album
-Childhood album

That's most of it...I think.

This does not include all of the card sets and frames I need to make for my Etsy store. Those as well as my niece's album have deadlines.

The main projects I'm focusing on right now are my 2013 album & my travel album. Every now then for a change of pace I add lo to my blast from the past album. I try to stay current but there are some straggler photos from 2011 & 2012 that I will add to those yr albums. But for the most part I consider those albums finished, they have all the important pics in them.

I don't have a scrap project going right now, but I do have several projects going. Because I have a large studio to myself it is easy to just let things lie and know they'll be there tomorrow. The luxury is I can pop in there for 15 - 20 minutes, do a little bit of create and leave. Nothing to take out or put away.
Projects 1. make about 100 ATC's to give away or trade at CKC and Heirloom in March. 2. Putting new faces on my stamp drawers and label some other drawers and cupboards. 3. Making 100 cards for Operation Write Home.
I also have 2 videos I'd like to make the Christmas card one and how to make an explosion page. I am trying to convince myself I don't have "stage fright". I don't know what it is, but I am nervous about making the videos. It's really nonsensical because I already did one.

If you look at it from the standpoint of how many albums, a lot. I have albums for both GKs. And I have an album for layouts about me and DH, and what we do. I have an album about things going on in my city. Those four albums I add layouts to on a regular basis.

But, if you consider each layout a project, I usually only have two projects going on at any given time. One art journal page, one scrapbook page. Right now is an exception, because I started one scrapbook page, set it aside, and then thought about doing a different page. And because I made a card with the scraps of the scraps I was using on my most recent scrapbook page.

Whatever layout I'm working on. That's it.

I never count albums as 'unfinished'. They are growing, living, creatures that change over time. Any memory documented simply adds to the overall story.

I am currently working on my son's album. He graduates this May. I am about twenty layouts behind. I will then work on his good friend's album as a gift for graduation. In between working on those two albums, I work on layouts for recent activities my daughter has been involved in so I don't get too far behing on her albums. Pictures for her have slowed down because she is in college now.I am doing her Color Run pages next, and I am really looking forward to that layout-the pictures are great. I do have a Smash book that I add to at least once a week.

Valentines & a V-day tag book to give to dd.
December Daily I started in 2011.
3 Birthday mini albums I do for dd every year, for 2010, 11 & 12.

Not nearly as many as some of you! I'm able to pretty much keep up to date on my scrapbooks.

Right now I still have:
2012 album (need to journal a few pages yet)
2013 album (in progress!)
Disney Dec 2012 album

It depends on how you define "going on". I am a list type of I like getting projects finished and marked off . So, I tend to only have a few that I am actively working on. However, that doesn't stop me from adding more to the list of things I am planning to work on...and am already shopping for....

Right now, I am working on:
- 2012 Project Life album (almost finished)
- 2013 Project Life album
- Niece #1 album (ages 3-5.5 yrs)
- Niece #2 album (ages 1-4 yrs)
- Niece #1 school album

Projects that I want to work on this year:
- Nephew baby album
- NYC album
- Disney album
- Honeymoon album
- Travel album
- 2005-2009 album
- College album

My list is really ambitious this year, but I am mostly using PL supplies to simplify the process. I am really wanting to get stories in albums this year and this has been the quickest way I have found to do it. However, I will add in traditional layouts in the mix, too.

Reading this thread makes me feel not so bad about my numerous projects and how "BEHIND" I really am.
-2013 PL (haven't even started but got pics printed tonight to hoping to start tomorrow evening)
-Kerri Bradford History Project (got the binder and a plan but haven't started yet and a new prompt for journaling comes each week so now I'm 4 weeks behind)
-DD school album is 1.5 years behind
-December Daily for 2011 and 2012 (really am probably going to completely cancel for 2011 since I'm so far behind)
-Family albums (I am currently scrapping 2009 and 2012 simultaneously. I am a chrono scrapper, but I am doing 2009 digi so maybe just maybe I can get 2009 and 2010 finished this year...fingers crossed)

UGH!!! I really need to pea less and scrap more

My scrapbook process is that I scrap whatever I feel like and my albums revolve around that. So it's kind of one project and kind of 10 projects depending which way you look at it.

I also make cards and am doing PL
Plus I do home decor projects too which I sometimes start and never finish

I guess I'm usually someone that has only one at a time. If I choose to do a layout I am pretty good about finishing that same day/night. I like to focus on one thing at a time. However, this is the first year I am doing project life and I'm enjoying it so in a way it's like I'm doing two projects at once and I love it!
