Default Rant on Reorganizing

I use a Smash book to store my ideas, sayings and quotes, mini album instructions and card instructions. I put them in there with no organizationat all. So I decided to make another one. I have a Zutter and even an old fashioned office Binder machine. I found a spiral bound notebook with design card stock in it. It had cute pocket pages and shaped pages too. Although the cover was a bit flimsy, I figured I could use chip board and make my own cover. Right? Sure I could. Old fashioned machine would not take my covered chip board (too thick) neither would the Zutter. So I recovered a thinner chip board and the machine took it. BUT the holes did not align with the pages and it was not sturdy enough. *sigh* Ok I will hand punch each and every hole with my Cropadile. Both covers done. LOL < maniacal laughter. The spiral is too small to turn the pages with the added thickness of the cover. Ok I can adjust. I put (red) zip ties through each 48 holes. Whew. Then I cut out or used my Undu to move the instructions and ides to the new book. Was it worth it? IDK We'll see. Rant over.

I feel your pain! One of those, "why did I ever start this?" projects.

Sounds like the domino effect that happens every time I get an idea that will "improve" something in my system, lol - I definitely feel your pain. I have to say, though, that you stayed with it longer than I would have, for sure! I suffer from OS ("ooh...shiny!")...

You think fast on your feet! I am with Sue. I would not have stuck with it that long either. I think you get extra point for endurance and determination!


I hope it serves you well now for years.
