Choose Your Hobbies Wisely

I'm in the process of catching up ... AGAIN!  I started scrapbooking because I thought it would be a GREAT way to consolidate our memories instead of having boxes and boxes of memories.  I admit it, I have "clutter-phobia".  

I did pretty good before we had kids and from what I've heard other moms describe, I'm still not doing too bad.  I completed a scrapbook for each of the kids first years and am now less than a year behind on the rest of our books.  (I say "less than a year" VERY loosely ... I'm on November=}) That's the thing though.  I wait until I'm like a year behind and then I have dozens of pages to catch up on and it's constantly hanging over my head.

Here's the thing.  I like to see a work complete!!  And scrapbooking is NEVER complete.  It just keeps going and I just keep taking more and more pictures and doing more and more cool things that I'd like to document. 

I really do like the finished product.  They are so fun to go back and look at and my kids absolutely LOVE looking at them.  They'll love them even more the older they get!  So, I'll press on.  

Do you scrapbook and how in the world do you keep up with it?
