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!
