A Creative Rut

I do think that I have hit a brick wall...creatively. I want to scrap...I go in my room and look at all my stuff...but there is no creative juice flowing. I continue to take pictures...lots that are still on my digital camera card (note to self...get them off the card and on the computer!) Maybe I am tired of my scrapping supplies...seems like I have the same old crap and just cant seem to use anything up. Yeah...I know I am just rambling hoping that somewhere out there someone will be reading this and have some ideas for me.

I think a lot of the creative block is due to some things that are going on with me. We are trying to have a baby and it is not going all that well...much harder this time around. Being on hormones in picnic either! Then there is work...I hate it...it is boring and I just don't feel like going there. Yeah, I know we need the money but my sanity is more important. I have been sucking it up and going just hoping that some day something is going to happen to fix all this crap that is going on.

Since I started working I hardly ever get to see Jason and that is really bothering me...I did not think that it would but I really really miss him! I miss the time that we had just the two of us during the day when Hunter would be in school. Last summer we had fun during the day while Jason and I were both home and then at night, if I was not working, Hunter and I would just chill...I wish it were like that again! Yes, everything has to change but I'm not liking this change!

Well...that is all for now...off to look at some inspiration and then I'm off to bed. Here is hoping that the creative bug hits me while I sleep so I can scrap while Hunter is at football practice tomorrow night. (yes, he is playing football...he loves it...figures!)

Night all!

The Great Genealogy Shape Up of 2018!

For most of 2017, I spent my genealogy time cleaning up my database in Legacy Family Tree.  I'm still working on cleaning up messes from when I first started my family tree.  For 2018, I plan to continue cleaning up my database.  I would also like to finish adding all Find A Grave information to my database as well.  
Find A Grave is a great place to find leads to research.  Legacy makes it very easy to find everyone in your database who do not have Find A Grave memorials.  

Click the drop-down arrow on the Find A Grave icon and it gives you the following options:



I selected create a list of people without a Find A Grave Memorial and I got a nice LONG list of people.  From this list, I have been able to find more ancestors to research and add to my database.
My other goal for 2018 is to find the people in my database who do not have a source {yes, I said without a source.  Gasp!} Legacy also makes it very easy to find these people.  You want to click on Search {in the image of the…

Goodbye Evernote, Hello OneNote

What?  I'm leaving Evernote behind!
As most of you know I have been a huge Evernote supporter from the beginning and I have had a paid membership from the beginning {until October 1st}.There has been a lot of talk about Evernote not lasting much longer because they have been making a lot of changes and letting people go.That got me thinking about what I would do if they did cease to exist.I started looking at all of my options and the best option, for me, is OneNote.I already have it on my computer and it is free.I can use OneNote on my desktop, laptop, phone, and table all for free.I can still use tags {a bit different than what I am use to but it works and I am finding that I really don't need that many tags}.I can still search for things and actually find what I am looking for.I can still clip stuff from the web using the OneNote clipper.I'm currently working on moving notes from Evernote to OneNote.It can be a bit tedious but the process has forced me to look at my note…
