My Start Here Jar Tag labels

So many people have asked what I have on my tags for my Start Here Jar.

From Stacy Julian's book, Photo Freedom, I used:

1. All About Us
2. People We Love
3. Places We Go
4. Things We Do
5. Storage Albums
6. Theme Albums
7. Photos I Love
8. & 9. Digital Triage

(I did not use Family Words File or Cultural Memorabilia Box because I'm not doing those two components at this time.)

I added these labels of my own:
10. Sort photos (just getting started with LOM, so I have lots of photos to put into all the binders, drawers, and cold storage)
11. Sort paper and scraps (I always have paper and scraps to put into my organizational system and I procrastinate on getting this done.)
12. Sort ScrapRack (I always have items that need to be put into my ScrapRack system. I have a basket I throw that stuff into when I get it until I feel like putting it away.)
13. Sketches Binder (I save printouts of sketches in a binder (see previous post) and need to constantly update my binder.)

I also do other crafts besides scrapbooking, so I added these labels as well:
14. Make a card
15. Knit
16. Sew

So, now when I sit down at my desk and don't know where to start, I've got a tool to help me! Glad to hear so many of you are enjoying it! I was so bummed last week that I was too sick to get it done.

I get to go scrapbooking at a friend's house for the weekend, but I just got Photoshop Elements 7, so I'm more excited about organizing my digital photos. I have 5 years of photos stored digitally that I haven't printed yet because I already had so many photos I was "behind" on. I kept saying that I'd print out the new ones as I preplanned the pages for them... but now I just want to print them out using Stacy's method. I've got them all backed up, but not organized at all! So, I think I'll bring my laptop and spend some time doing digital triage this weekend.

Happy Scrapping!
