Yesterday was all about the BINDERS. I organized three binders for different "roles" in my life, and was great! The Christmas Planner is part of a group I'm in called "Redeeming Your Season." Thanks to my friend Stacey Kingman, I was led to a wonderful group of women who are all planning ahead for Christmas, allowing us to make Jesus the focus without all of the last-minute hassle. I'm loving it! Already have a Gift Idea log going along with a gift hiding place. :)

The Scrapbook Class Idea binder is just that. I have tons of ideas floating around in my head for scrapbook classes! So I organized a binder with different sections (organization, layouts, altered items, mini albums, home decor, and so on...) and whenever I develop a new class idea, I just add it to the section. A great way to keep it all together!

The other binder is my Room Mom/school binder. I was Room Mom last year for Noah's kindergarten class and am already assuming that I'll be involved some way during his first grade year. So I'm ready to go, complete with a printed calendar, sections for parties, field trips, book orders, etc.

Am I driving you crazy yet??

I did this fun layout this morning. HAD to do something ORANGE! I love doing something different for a Disney layout so they don't all look the same. (you can click on it to see a larger version)

I think we might drive somewhere fun to eat lunch. Please say a prayer for my Mom.
She could just use an extra one tonight. Thank you :)

I'm all about binders... my dh thinks I'm crazy but whatever, lol! as a matter of fact, I'm kicking myself because I needed to pick up a new one when I was at Wal-Mart this morning and I forgot.

LOVE the layout... so sweet! Please don't make me want to scrap my Disney photos!

Oh, Jennifer, I'm so envious of how organized you are! I love being organized, I just don't STAY organized. You do inspire me to go organize somehting, though. And a prayer for your mom. God knows her hearts desire and I pray He will comfort her and give her peace.

Jennifer, you ALWAYS inspire me! I bought some binders this week to organize some of my favorite childcare tips and craft projects for the holidays. After reading your blog, I promised to add this project to my "To Do" list.

Man, I need to take some organizing lessons from you! I love that layout!

Orange is my favorite color. There were the CUTEST little shoes today at Kohls but they didn't have them in my BIG size and they were only 13.00! Anyway, love the page, and I love your inspiration!
