Decluttering

I am so happy with the amount of decluttering I got done yesterday, although it's not near enough! Why do I let things go until they drive me crazy? I can take the easy way out and put some blame on Brian because he is not only a pack rat, but seriously busy and all of his school and church stuff accumulates very quickly and it's not anything I can mess with. Of course, I can't blame him for the FOURTEEN pairs of shoes that Rory still had in her closet that she's outgrown in the last 6 months. Yes, it's a sickness. I also packed up about half of Rory's overflowing book baskets. The plan is to switch them out every few months. Today I have to tackle actually cleaning those places I decluttered.

A couple of scrapping things:

(1) Gina Miller has a new set of Project 365 templates out today that are fabulous! (layout coming soon to a blog near you)


(2) Scrap Orchard has a collab kit for sale. All proceeds will go to the Clinton Bush Haiti fund, and you can find it here.


I drove myself crazy trying to shoot pictures in manual yesterday, and I think I've decided that moving children + manual settings + plus an amateur photographer don't work very well. The quality of these aren't great, but they did capture what a fun time the kids were having. Rory was in her princess/witch costume and putting on jewelry. She surprised us all by reaching around to give Camden a kiss.

Hello, my name is Brian Lewis, and I am a pack rat.

I don't know what you're talking about how the quality of these pics aren't that great. They're awesome pics! Please put these on scrapbook pages soon, but not those pages where the pictures are so small that they become insignificant. These two kids need BIG pictures on the pages.

I love you. I'll throw away some clutter this weekend!
