2-3 Minute Bedrest Scrap Sessions: A Lovely Day in the Park

I did a movie on my phone that I had originally planned on sharing here, but you can’t really edit those and I grew unmotivated to mess with it.  :-)  But I do have pics I snapped of each step of my process so everyone can get an idea of how I’ve been doing this on bedrest–without worrying that I am in anyway endangering my baby.  Those of you who are familiar with my story know how long we’ve waited, and how special the bean is, so of course I wouldn’t be up more than my doctor has told me I can be.  He lets me up 10% of my day–so all I have to do is carefully manage that time.  I keep track of meals, bathroom, shower, etc. so I know I’m not going over my limit.  So, here goes!

Step 1) In bed:  I sketched out my idea for the layout, going off memory on what pics I have waiting to be scrapped, and referring back to the picture I snapped of my kit contents on my phone.  This way, I could even notate specific supplies so my time up would be used efficiently.

Step 2) 3 minutes up after shower:  I pulled my needed supplies from my kit (took less than a minute) and spent remaining time trimming photos to be sure they would fit the space I thought they would.

Step 3) 2 minutes up after lunch:  Adhered photos.

Step 4) 3 minutes up after a RR break: Trimmed and adhered patterned paper strips.

Step 5) 2 minutes after dinner:  Skipped cutting letters with my Silhouette as I’d originally planned (it was getting late in the day at this point, and I wanted this one done!), and threw together most of a quick title block with kit contents and a pen.

Step 6) On the couch:  strung buttons.  :-)

Step 7) 3 minutes after RR break:  Adhered buttons, and voila!!!

FINISHED! :-) Took all day, but only 13 minutes up! :-)  Sorry for the small pics, but I can’t enlarge them too much, confidentiality, etc., for our foster kids this summer.  Thanks for visiting!

  1. you are amazing! beautiful LO and beautiful work. especially when you think it only took 13 minutes…. I take more time than that to figure out how i want it to look and hunt the paper. I am going to do the supply thing you have mentioned

    1. That’s why I love doing sketches beforehand, it really saves me time! And the kit helped me limit my embellie choices. :-) You should scrap and post!! (hint!). ;-)

  2. omg! ANN – you rawk chicka!!!

    however, as a momma of 2 – i have to say, that you do NOT need an explanation to ANYONE! as to what you do with your day, and your precious ‘bean’ {btw, that is one gar-gan-gu-in bean!} just sayin’…

    however, hello??? 13 minutes kick-ass layout! AWESOME!

  3. Love it! I was telling my DH about you last night…he laughed and said “only women would do that…if I was told to stay in bed…I would stay in bed…” LOL
