I have been slowly working on my 2012 album... And procrastinating starting work on my 2013 album, even though it is now almost April!!

I am attempting a project life/12x12 hybrid (what I did for 2012) but not a PL layout per week. I do want to use PL to record more of my 'everyday life' than i did last year, though.

I feel so behind it is kind of intimidating! and this is not the only unstarted or unfinished project I have, not by a long shot!

So, what projects do you peas have planned or unfinished that you are procrastinating right now? And how are you going to make yourself Just Start Doing It???

I need to get started on several mini albums I am making for my sisters in law of a road trip we took last April. I want to make one for myself too!! They always say that the hardest part of a project is just getting started ,so that is what I need to do after Easter. I havent made a mini album in almost a year. Maybe that is my problem!

I posted a similar thread earlier today - looking for some motivation or others in the same boat as me. There seemed to be interest but no group, so I have created one in FB

Start to Finish Scrapbooking Challenge

I have finished, printed & received photo books for my December Daily & my Monthly Review/Day in the Life both from 2009.

I would like to complete the First year albums for my oldest (10 years old next month) and my 4yo since I have a new baby due in May!

Happily married to my Salvadoreno y Orgullosa de ser Mexicana. Lovin' my 3 boys. Thirty-One Gifts is my newest adventure & having so much fun!

Ummm, all of them

The main one, though, is my Disney World vacation for my boys' 5th birthday. That was in 2009 and I don't have any completed pages. I am just so overwhelmed by that one. So many pictures, memorabilia, autographs, etc... I would be thrilled if I could get that done this year!

We are planning on another vacation this summer and my goal is to get my 2009 Disney trip scrapbook done before that one. At this point, though, I don't know if I am going to meet that goal!

I'm in organizing mode mainly so have only been two weeks behind on PL and nothing else but I found some more organizers that will help me finish the organizing sooner vs later so I can actually do a few other things like completing some mini albums, complete some in process layouts and learn some new techniques.

glad I am not alone!

I also have a giant project that I haven't devoted any time to lately...my album(s) from a 3 month trip to Europe...in 1997!!

I am afraid I will no longer like the supplies I have set apart and themes I have used for this album do far when I start back up.

All the kids class portraits and sports pics. Only the wallet sized pics. I bought a bunch of ATC card spinners to put them on. I want to create one for hubby to put on his desk at work. One for Grandma, Auntie and one for the house. Just don't seem to have the space to spread it all out. Plus, I'm also in the middle of a remodel and there is dust everywhere. Still trying to get the house painted, but can't do that because of the dust. Still have unfinished walls. UGH! I so want to scrap!

I've been afraid to work on our trip to Yellowstone in 2010
I am so afraid that the album won't live up to my wonderful memories

I have been scrapbooking since 2002 And I have been procrastinating my wedding album and a book about my mom. I have all the papers bought, the organization done...and I can't seem to force myself to do it!

I have a lot in progress, but they are all ones I enjoy doing. There is only one I am procrastinating on, and it's the one I NEED to get done - baby albums! My first nephew was born almost 3 years ago and I promised my brother a baby album for his first birthday. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to get my own kid's baby albums done, just do all 3 identical at the same time, piece of cake! Well...I don't know WHY I get so bogged down on them, but I do. I maybe get 2-3 pages done and then am sick of it for months. I'm really mad at myself too, I never do this with gifts. Oh well....it's on my summer to-do list!

Cleaning and organizing my scrap room...it's a disaster! I can't start scrapping until I bring some order to the room.

erniessweetpea, someone once told me perfectionism and procrastination are 'best friends...' Pretty true! I totally understand.

I did the first 2 pages of my 2013 album today...hooray!

As a result of responding to this thread, I decided to take the first step and am currently uploading 396 pictures to W to print for tomorrow's pick-up! YIKES! That doesn't count wedding or New Orleans pics... Breathe deep, breathe deep... one step at a time!

I'm not a chronological scapper or a PL'r. I scrap whatever inspires me at that moment. I don't have separate albums for school, baby etc. I do a layout and place it in DD, DS, Family, or Vacation Album. I don't wanna stress over a hobby that is suppose to be my "de-stressor" HOWEVER, with that being said, I really want to get all those mini album kits I've purchase through the years at the conventions completed.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

I have spent the last several years procrastinating, so I am determined to do some catching up in 2013. So far, I have been tackling the two nieces' albums. I was 3.5 years behind in each of their books and just as of this weekend, I am caught up!

I decided to go the route of using divided page protectors, in order to make the process faster. I realized that I scrap too slowly to ever catch up using traditional pages. So far, it is working! I still have a long list for the year:
- Project Life 2013
- honeymoon album
- 2006-2009 album
- NYC trip
- Disney album

My goal is to stay on track. I am hoping that I can start 2014 feeling much less overwhelmed and weighed down by all the unfinished projects/undocumented memories.
