Have you “Fallen Behind” on your scrapbooking? Come to a Fall Scrapbook Retreat

If there is one deterrent to a person scrapbooking their pictures it’s when they have “fallen behind.” You know what I’m talking about—when your child is now in high school and you have yet to scrapbook pictures of when he was in preschool. The idea of trying to catch up can feel overwhelming.
It really doesn’t have to be. The problem is we think we have to start at the beginning. But it actually makes more sense and is less overwhelming to start at the end and work backwards.
Here’s what I mean—first, you have to get all your pictures together and organize them. Depending on how many years have lapsed, you can create piles according to age or decade. It may take breaking down pictures a few times before they are really organized. Also keep in mind that you can’t scrapbook every single picture you have. File away pictures you want to keep but don’t plan on using in a scrapbook. Be selective about the pictures you are going to include. If necessary, limit yourself to only 10 pictures or however many works for you. Then separate and label the pictures you are going to use.

With time and patience you will be able to catch up and then keep current. However keep in mind that the longer you procrastinate, the bigger the job. So don’t wait a minute longer. Collect those pictures sign up for one of our scrapbooking retreats and get going.

About Retreats
New to scrapbooking or not a scrapbooker and unaware what retreats are… all about? Well, imagine packing up luggage for a typical family of 4, full only with your craft items of choice (papers, adhesives, embellishments, albums, tools, stickers, etc.) then cramming one more tote bag in your van containing just your change of clothes & toiletries. Then you drive (usually with a couple of like-minded crafty friends) spectacular house in Heber City (overlooking the Heber Valley), you set up at a table on Thursday and work on your crafts of choice all weekend until Sunday, taking breaks only to eat & sleep a few hours. ECSTASY . . …….
