For instance, I bought a scrapbook a couple of weeks ago & I was so excited at the time (it’s to put all the wedding stuff in, also engagement, keepsakes, cards, etc). When I got home with it that night, I got all of our wedding stuff out plus all the crafting stuff & went to town. I worked on it for about 2 1/2 hours straight, then realized it was almost 2 am & I was exhausted. I put it up, went to bed & haven’t touched it since!
Everytime I see all the stuff sitting in the little basket I feel guilty, (as silly as that sounds)! I feel like I should be doing scrapbooking during my free time until it’s done. Darling Husband has made a couple of small comments on it, that lets me know he is aware that I haven’t done it yet, but it seems overwhelming to me! CAN YOU BELIEVE ALTHOUGH I WORKED ON IT FOR 2 HOURS STRAIGHT, I ONLY GOT ONE PAGE DONE?! 🙁 The rest of the time I was picking out what colors to use for the scraps, what color markers, deciding on how the first page should look, etc. I’ve never done scrapbooking before, but should it be this hard or overwhelming?
I’ve done this before with other things too. I intend to do them, but then don’t.
Please tell me someone else has this problem.

Lol, sorry, I don’t! That’s the only thing I’m good at – I finish what I start. I’m waaaaaay to hard on myself to not do so. I wish I could walk away from stuff sometimes!
You’ll get to it… one day!

Me! I do this ALL the time!!! It always sounds like such a great idea and I LOVE doing it at first (staying up all night to work on things) then … nothing! One reason I’m really scared to DIY for my wedding! I’ll have to do everything in one day!!!
And scrapbooking becomes easier! Once you get going and do some you figure out what you like and how to put things together faster. Also, you think of ideas for pages at random times, so when you go to do it, its super fast! (but i shouldn’t talk, i haven’t touched mine in about a year!)

LOL @ Miss Lily – I do that when I’m cleaning too!
I’ll go in the bathroom to mop the floor, then see that the trash can needs to be emptied, so I’ll take it to the kitchen, then see that the plants need watered, then remember that the dog needs water, then do the dirty dishes, then check my email, then have to pee, so I’ll go to the bathroom & wonder why the light is on, then remember I was going to MOP THE FLOOR!
