MDS 2014 Scrapbooking: More January

January-18---24-create

Had fun colouring the 'create' stamp using colours to match the Zoob construction materials the kids have been playing with.  So easy to colour digitally - and if you make a mistake there's that handy undo button.  My favourite. 

I've been working on a few more January MDS pages of my digital 'Our 2014 Life' album this week while resting in between decluttering jobs.  We got a skip for a couple of days this week so have been doing 'decluttering on steroids' - all hands on deck.  Cleaned out heaps of junk from the garage and under the house - and quite a bit from inside the house too.  Aaaah - I do love a good clean out.

A bit of trivia:  I've been aiming to do a week to a layout roughly and was doing Monday to Sunday.  Just inserted a 5 day week and am swapping to Saturday to Friday for the rest of the album.  I quite often fluff about on the computer on a Saturday morning so that way I can upload all the photos from the week and get the layout done - I think that timing will work better for this project. 

Here's another page.  If I've done enough pages by the end of June I might get it printed then and make it 2 albums for the year.  I don't think I'm patient enough to wait until the end of the year.

Going digital for my Project Life style album this year prompted me to have a think about how I'm backing up my computers.  Or rather - how they're not really backed up.  I had an external hard drive so sat down the other night and copied lots of laptop files onto that - then left it in a silly spot and Jack knocked it off the table.  Bye bye back up.  I replaced it and have copied both machines onto that and put it in a safe place!  Plus I decided to go with Crashplan as an online back up.  It'd take a gazillion years and all our internet allowance to back everything up and I've got lots of stuff on both the laptop and desktop so I've picked out some key folders for that to back up online.  Including of course my MDS projects!  Much happier now that things are a bit more organised in my digital world.  Have you backed up your photos or files lately?  Here's your little reminder if you need to go look after that.  :-) 

Happy scrapbooking!   I've cleaned up my craft desk too and have a snazzy little organiser thing that I can't wait to show you.  It is covered with brand spanking new products though so I'll have to wait til after the 28th! 

Cheers, Sue
