Not crafting but....

been sorting out my photos... which I suppose can be classed as crafting, sort of...

First of all I had to go round the house gathering up packets, albums and boxes of photos and lugged them all up into the attic, (that was tiring in itself, lol)...


Starting off was not too bad as some were dated, so sorted them into years and...



putting them into some boxes I bought from Lidl last year....



But still got loads to do and lots that are not dated, so am aiming on putting them into piles like holiday or schools, then hopefully will be able to work out when and where they were taken...

The reason behind all this is because I want to do make a scrapbook for one of Steven friends for his 21st Birthday in July. So about a month back, I realised it was nearly May and time seemed to be flying by and that I would need to get my finger out in starting the scrapbook. So went looking for some photos of the young lad, to then realise they were spread in boxes and bags all over the house, lol...

So no real crafting for me in the last few weeks and by the looks of it for the foreseeable future...

Just hope I manage to get things sorted in time for the young lads Birthday.

That'll be a good job done when you have finished sorting through them all.
I did ours a few years ago but since having a digital camera we have become a bit lazy in actually printing them out!
