Babysitting

Thursday, March 19, 2009

I'm babysitting my friend's son tonight and he's playing it cool (watching Backyardigans) so I have a chance to organize my scrapbooking stuff. I have been completely paralyzed on the digital scrapbooking front. I haven't done a page in months. I went on a scrapbooking retreat in October and did a bunch of pages. A couple of months later, I was sitting, waiting for my winter tires to be installed and I accidentally deleted all of my scrapbooking supplies. Luckily, DH is something of a computer whiz and he was able to un-delete a lot of it. I guess that's one of the downsides of digital. Your stash can disappear with two clicks.

After the un-delete, it looked like everything was back where it should be, but when I tried to use some of supplies, some of them were corrupted. I had done a back-up about 2 months earlier, but trying to figure out which files were not restored and had to be re-loaded was a real pain, and I'm not done. My approach is to scrapbook, and to make a list of elements which are corrupted and I'll restore them later.

One thing that didn't make it back from the ether was the spreadsheet I had of which scrapbook pages I had done, which were missing, which were printed, etc. Tonight, between watching my friend's son, and the hockey game, I'll try to put some order to things. I'm cataloguing all of my completed pages, as well as tagging all the pages that aren't complete. I have a lot of 2008 done, but none of 2009. I'm so far behind, I think I'll start with the most recent pictures and work my way backwards. I'll start with some templates (easy) and ease my way back to the more complicated pages. I'm a bit out of practice. Wish me luck!
