Blue Momma is wicked taking a different route with our theme this week:  abject humiliation.  She t r i e d to cloak it in a "misery loves company" thing, but we know better…it’s just another one of those "you show me yours and I’ll show you mine" one- upsmanship.  Except, in this case, it’s downsmanship or something.  Don’t believe me?  Here are HER words:  "I want to see your unfinished projects. I have so many that I really
need some reassurance that I’m not the only one. Home improvement
projects are what I have in mind, but it you don’t have any of those
show me any kind of project – needlework, cooking, scrapbooking, etc.
You can even show me your spouse if they qualify as a work in process."
AND, she had the audacity to beg for PICTURES!

Well, far be it for me NOT to abide by the rules of the game. 

I’m certain I’ve mentioned how difficult it has been to locate old pictures before (like these or these)…that’s because they’ve been "waiting to be organized" for years.  Lots and lots of years.  But, thanks in large part to a well-aimed flame under my behind–lit by my traitor daughter of all people!–I’m making progress.

See?  This is Rachel’s system:


Pretty pictures in pink bowls…doesn’t that just make the work F U N?  At least she HAS a system…:/.  AND she created a fabulous new tongue twister!

Once they were sorted by year, we put them in their own box:


Personally, I think funky, colorful photo boxes make a difference, too. 


Can’t you just feel our momentum?

The old ones are relegated to old shoe or storage boxes…not nearly as motivatin’….


Ooops!  I forgot these…..


THERE’S my Diet Pepsi, daggum it!  I wondered where I left it!  (See how I was multi-tasking?  There are stamp projects all over the table, too….  Hmmm, WHY can I never get anything done???)

When I’m done with pictures, there are a few other projects to keep me busy:

Cleaning out and organizing the side attic for the sixth time in four years–


And cleaning out closets and taking a stack to Goodwill, a seemingly semi-monthly bi-monthly occurrence at our house.


Okay, guys…that’s all you’re getting from me this week…I’ve got work to do!

(Be sure to visit Blue Momma for even more works-in-progress!)
