That's what I'm doing today... literally! :) Well, that and some afternoon baking.
Since Christopher left his laptop home for me today, I wanted to get caught up on e-mails and such. However, I can't do that until I finish putting my files and paperwork in order. I hate to admit it but there is a stack of my "stuff" in the office which has been begging to be sorted and filed for... months. Our home office is the smallest of the three bedrooms, any such clutter seems to make the entire room look messy.
I also had to order Miss E.'s birthday book and a bag of Charlie's Soap after finishing my morning quiet time. The book I ordered is called Children's Tea & Etiquette. It says it is about "basic dining manners and customs surrounding afternoon tea"... perfect for a little lady turning six years old.
I almost have the journal magazine pictures completely filed. The pocket folders work great, I don't remember where I read the idea of using them for such a project but they are far better than the zip lock bags I was using before. I'm using the same categories I mentioned before and I'll add a couple more. I know some people who like to sort their pictures and such by seasons. That would be good, too.
I keep an old, red 9 x 13 metal pan handy when I'm cutting pictures and prose. That way, most of those leftover pieces of paper can go into it and be easily thrown away when I stop working for awhile. I also am keeping my spiral artist's book I'm using for the journal and the pocket folders stored in it at other times.
Right now, I'm keeping any pages I haven't had a chance to cut out in a gallon size zip lock bag. They still work well for that use. I'll show pictures when possible. The first morning was spent cutting up last year's Susan Branch calendar and yesterday I cut out and "filed" all the other magazine pages.
I hope you clicked on the link in the last post to see Kimberly's journal.
Now on to the sorting and filing, mixing and baking! Be back soon...
