I am just wondering how many layouts (single, PL, etc) most peas get scrapped in a given week. I am gearing up for LOAD213 and I'm so excited to be motivated to scrap a layout a day but it seems a little daunting seeing as I usually only scrap 1-2 layouts weekly and some weeks I don't get any done at all.
I also work full time, have a ten month old, and am 22 weeks pregnant so..... lol.
Just wondering how everyone else is doing.

Wow - pregnant, working, and a 10-month-old . . . I'm impressed you get ANY scrapping done! Hats off to you!

I've been scrapping more lately, though I've veered towards cards for Valentine's. I probably did about 20 layouts this past month. Usually it's less than that - unless I'm at a retreat!

I'm going to try for LOAD too. I've just put in a big Shutterfly order to prep for it.

Mines different very week I'm sure. This weekend I didn't have a lot going on and made 5 layouts Saturday evening.

Wow you are my hero!

I do my PL spread and a few cards. I just started doing 12 x12 but I hope to do two of those a week as well.

I work full-time, have kids, sports, volunteer, etc. so I'm in your same boat time-wise and I don't scrap anything most weeks except PL pages.

I do one 4-day retreat per year and maybe 6 crops; that's where I get most of my layouts done. I think 1-2 per week/sometimes none with your lifestyle is a LOT! Good for you.

I'm doing LOAD for the first time. I don't think realistically I can do an actual layout a day, but I'm going to see how many I can bust out. I'm sure it'll be more than I usually do! Hoping to take notes and percolate ideas during the week, then scrap or catch-up on the weekends we aren't busy.

I do 2 a week and my PL. Weekends might give me time to do 3 or 4 more but that's if we are not overcommitted.

I do 2 page layouts, and on average maybe 2-3 a week. I only scrap an hour or so 3-4 times a week ( when kids are asleep). Once a month or so I go to a crop or scrap at Archiver's and usually get several done then.

I try to do 10-20 a week. Don't always make it though. I did finish 4 dbl page lo's today, so that was a good day.

Sometimes I scrap a lot more, but after a while, switch to another craft, like quilting. Change it up. So it's not like I get 20 lo's a week done every single week.

Sometimes we are doing something fun as a family and shooting lots of photos, so not so many lo's get done then. (Christmas, for example, lots of pictures, not so much scrapping)

I figure it's ok to have an ebb and flow to this, at least for me.

Since christmas I've only made one But have been doing PL and making cards so that sort of makes up for it.
Usually I would make around 1 per week. But would make more if I just got supplies.

I am erratic...some weeks I can get one done every day. Other times I go 2 or 3 weeks without doing any at all.

If I had a job, a child, and was making another...I'm pretty sure I'd be using those same numbers but I'd be referring to how NAPS I was getting!!

Hats off to all you working mommas!

Your defiantly have alot going on I would just try to do what you can & don't get discouraged if you can't! Don't make it a chore or act as if you HAVE to complete one LO a day!

I don't work but I think SAHM is such a bad phrase since I'm never home! Between driving the kids to and from school and activities/appointments, I spend most of my day in the car. If I could figure out how to scrapbook in the car, I'd be golden.

I do scrapbook at least one, maybe two layouts a day in the morning during my children's morning tv show and I usually do about three or four a day on the weekends if we are home.

I'm not doing a challenge, just trying to catch up. I'm about six months behind in my layouts.
