10 projects I'm working on

I know it's not the 10th here anymore so I'll start by saying, "Lest we forget" as we remember all those who die or were injured defending our country and our sense of freedom.
I'll begin my 10 of the 10th now and apologise for not uploading this yesterday. I also apologise  for the poor quality of photos as my DSLR  is being silly.

Here are my 10 big projects I have on the go at the moment. I know I'm crazy and should see things through but some of these projects are never going to be finished.

1st is my Project Life
My photograph is of a very plain week. No extra embellishing. Just using the kit the way the kit was designed to be used. Just slap everything into the pockets and move on.

2nd is my Becky Higgins Sweet Baby kit for Lisa
Not much progress has taken place since I posted my video which can be seen here.

3rd is last years Project 365
It is my Projecct Life but without the kit. I made my own kit, something I'm not doing again. I just didn't keep up to date with it. I did manage to take almost a photo a day. This year I'm a little more relaxed with the project and thus have managed to stay more up to date with it. I have recently printed all the extra photos for the Project 365 and have set about finishing the journaling. All my journaling for this year is up to date. Yay for me.

4th is my Korea album
Stupid me started this 6 years ago as my first scrapbooking project and thus it has been difficult to pick up again since my style has changed so much. I am not ripping up all the work from way back when but modifying some of the pages so they all fit together a bit better. I chose a really silly system for completing this album. It forced me to scrap the trip chronologically and that just didn't work for me. I have made huge inroads in the last week. I'm hoping by December it will be finished.

5th December Daily
It won't be a December Daily. It won't be like Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas but more of a combination of the two. I have started and I have created an album in 8 1/2 x 11' which is a format I haven't used before but am increasingly drawn to. I am keeping my pages very simple.

6th About Me february 2011
Yes, I know. I know. It's November so what am I doing working on an album about me from February? Well all the journaling is done and I just have to finish putting the album together.

7th 4x6 photo love for November
I don't know why I started this when I have so many projects on the go but I was so inspired by Shimelle's examples (and I had been working on my Korea album) that I just had to get the photos out and the divided page protectors out and give it a go. I have the embellishments I want to use and it all set to go. I just have to go.

8th My UFO (UnFinished Objects) pile
Check it out. All these pages just need journaling or a title. Can you believe I have such a huge pile? I just need to get them finished so I can put them in sleeves and then when I move, into their album. All the albums have been packed away for 3 weeks.

9th My farewell album pages
I created kits which can be seen here for my farewell album. Here is the title page I made. I've already received two pages back. It's amazing how different they are. It's going to be so good to put this album together. I can't wait to see what people have come up with.

10th My Christmas cards
I'm moving at the start of December so I won't be able to have access to all my supplies. I need to get these done ASAP. With a little "help" from Hollie (my DD5) they have ended up being a little more colourful than I would like but they are a true gift from our family.

However, probably my biggest project at the moment is packing my scrapbooking supplies. This is probably the hardest and most involved project. I've been packing and organising my scrapping stuff for a month now. How do I pack all this stuff. I barely looks like I made a dint in the room. OMG it makes me nervous just thinking about starting this again.
