Organizational {Friday} Answering Your Questions

If you remember from my big blog post/celebration celebrating my subscribers, many of you had questions. Today I thought I would share answers to your questions since some of them were organization related. So, let's get started.

First, many of you commented on how you enjoy my organizational posts, Scripture Challenges, and the new art journaling posts. I have a link list to a lot of my organizational posts here so it's easy to find what you need. Also, because I have been out of town, I haven't had a chance to create any art journaling pages. It is killing me! :) Anyway, I hope to have one for you in the next week or so. I definitely need some crafting time. I have missed it terribly! Now onto your comments/questions.

Jennifer in Ohio asked:
Some topic suggestions: how to organize a series of layouts into actual scrapbooks since some of us are working on recent photos as well as our stash of pictures from earlier in life (or the lives of our relatives).

*Jennifer, I have done several posts on photos. The most recent post shows how I have my pages and photos in my scrapbooks. This works if you are doing recent photos or older photos. You can see that post here. I hope that is what you were looking for. :)

Jennifer continues:
How to arrange finished cards and store them until we give or send them, how to earmark some photos or subjects that inspire me far more than others, and keep track of a growing collection while putting it to use rather than just accumulating papers and embellies.

*I have not had posts on these topics but will add them to my list. Thanks Jennifer!

Lain said:
More tutorials that are simple and easy would be great!

*I will try to add them as I can. I get so busy so it's harder to take the time to do a tutorial. We will see what I can do. :)

I would love to see more scripture challenges in the future.

Laura B asked:
I've wanted to ask you for a while-do you have a compilation of your Faith Journaling and Scripture Challenges in one doc somewhere for easy reference? THis would be so helpful!

*Lain, I am praying about where God will lead me for 2012. Right now we still have the 2011 ABC Scripture Challenge going. Feel free to join in if you haven't done so! I would love to have you or anyone else that wants to dive in! And you can see a compilation of all of my older Scripture Challenges here that can be done at any time! :) Laura, these are lists that hopefully are what you were looking for.

Scripture Challenge 2008
His Holy Name Challenge 2009
Scripture Challenge 2010
ABC Scripture Challenge 2011

I would however love to see different types of projects using scripture. Right now I'm in the making of a post board next to my computer where I can perhaps velcro laminated scripture verses each week.

*I try to use scripture on most of my creations. I hope as you look through my blog you will find scriptures for your board. I also just love to open my Bible and see what God gives me right on the page I open to. Hope that helps.

Olivia said:
Would love to see mini albums with different faith journaling themes.

*Olivia, unfortunately I don't do many mini albums. The closest thing I have to mini albums are my Scripture Challenge pages and ATCs. I do have some ideas for a few things but just never have time to implement them. I will see when and how God expands my time in the future for such things. :)

I bookmarked the posts on Kiwi and Sugar...I have ALWAYS wanted a Sun Conure and I live vicariously through you.

*Okay, I had to post a fun one as our last comment. Thank you Valerie! We have had birds since before hubby and I were married 22 1/2 years ago. I had a canary; he had finches. Our love of birds has only increased over the years, and we have always had birds! I must say Kiwi and Sugar are our favorite. Ooops, I am not supposed to play favorites am I? LOL! Anyway, as my knowledge of caring for domestic parrots has increased, so has my joy of them. They are SO very intelligent, and truly a blessing in our lives. Here are Kiwi and Sugar about 30 minutes after we arrived home from our 17-day vacation this past Sunday. They are a hoot, and I hope y'all enjoy!

Thank you all for your questions, your love, and your prayers. You all are a blessing, and may God protect those of you in the path of Hurricane Irene! Happy Friday!

Thanks again and Blessings,
Valerie Martin
