What Didn’t Work Before
Last year I pulled out all of my Christmas stuff and set it up around my workspace. I found that I didn’t use most of it because the tiny bits of time I had to scrapbook didn’t allow for much play. I ended up grabbing the easy ready-made stuff.
What I Think is Working Now
This year I’ve got a new battle plan that already feels better.
I’m front-loading the technique play ahead of time. Basically, I’m task-batching. That way I have my own stuff ready-made when I sit down to scrapbook in December. And if I want to play more later on, I can. But if I find myself limited on time again, it’s okay!
Here’s how I’m batching my tasks up front before I start actually scrapbooking pages…
Play-Time #1 – Manual die-cutting
Play-Time #2 – Electronic die-cutting
Play Time #3 – Glittering
Play Time #4 – Non-glittered altering
Have you run into the same problem as me in the past? Why not try batching your tasks too? Let me know if you have a task on your list that’s different from mine!
Have fun paperclipping your Christmas!
