I am in the process of moving us from our master bedroom where it's dark and gloomy (and right next to our neighbors), to our office where it's bright and sunny....

I'm in the process of completing several creative projects for college finals. One is a series of art journal pages about classic fairy tales. The other is a photography series project about healthy self-image. I'm really enjoying both. *very* excited to see the finished product. <3

I am working on renovating a "canned ham" camper hubby got me for Valentine's day. It's coming along nicely...and will soon be ready for our maiden voyage! See pics and more at http://pclouse.blogspot.com/2009/04/great-canned-ham-adventure.html

I am in the process of removing wallpaper from our kitchen. I need to get on the ball and finish...hubby doesn't realize that once you start a small kitchen project it will lead to a BIGGER kitchen project...shhh...don't tell him. I was laughing the other day as I stood staring into the kitchen, my hubby snuck up behind me and said,"Uh oh I can see you have a vision! We're in trouble now!" If he only knew...:D

weze said...

We are in the process of redoing our pond & waterfall out in our backyard. It will mean moving plants and digging a larger pond and probably a few headaches along the way. The end product and serenity are priceless tho!

Amy E said...

I'm working on Library of Memories AGAIN! I did this a few years ago and didn't keep with most of the triaging so now I'm back at it again!

Gab said...

I just read Jen's post about having a quilt that is a WIP which reminded me of the 4 quilts I have that are in various stages of progress!

Melanie Stanczyk said...

I'm in the process of adding new lighting to my scrapbook room!

Also going through all my supplies for my garage sale in a couple weeks. What ever is left from the sale will be going to my children's school so they can enjoy "scrapbooking"!

Anet said...

My work in progress is always my attic scraproom. Will it ever be done? I think I need help!!

TraceyR said...

My work in progress would be my children's scrapbooks; I have years here & there that are done, but lots of fun pictures still left to scrap plus the ones I continue to take.

Sherry said...

Mine is actually scrap book related.......I need to finish DS's senior year album before graduation!!

Susan said...

I am in the process of trying to lose as much weight as I can before we go away sometime in June/July. I am in the process of organizing my first yard sale sometime in June. I just cleaned up my scrap space a bit so I am ready to scrap again. Have new photos ready to go on my desk.

Cammy said...

I'm in the process of reorganizing my scraproom. I've been working on various stages of it for almost a year now, how embrassing. I just want to finish it.

dbettyboop2008 said...

I'm in the process of making all my great nieces a scrapbook from the kits I bought off of you in the etsy shop. Can't wait to get done with them & I can't wait to see all their expressions on their faces. They are all between 10 & 11 yrs old. They are at that age where they can put their own little touch. I'm making tree of them.

nana janet said...

I'm finishing an album/tribute to big sisters and beginning one about our beloved mother and her courage. Thanks

Trace Geworsky said...

Susi said...

I'm am gatherings items for a yard sale in early June. Lots of scrapping items from years past.

Deanna said...

What a generous giveaway Trish! Thank you so much! My current works in progress are of course trying to raise my girls the best I can, being a helpful wife, and then also keeping my creativity going. Right now I'm working on a mini album using Pink Paislee goodies, and repurposing their sticker pack as a mni album.

Kristen said...

Wow! Great giveaway! I bought the kit last night, I loved it so much! My "work in progress" is figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. I've spent 17 years in the publishing industry and I'm thinking of making a change, right before I turn 40 next year...

lenore said...

I'm in the process of planning a trip to Disney World for ten people, finding a theater program for my son this summer, working on an album for a client that I srapbook for and trying to clean my house up for the weekend. Yikes - too much to do and not enought time!

ahiltz said...

Thanks so much for doing this for us, Trish! My work in progress is trying to lose some weight and get in shape. It's been pretty hard lately because I have a nasty cold now for a week and a half which has kept me from going to the gym. It's hard to keep motivated when you can't work out and feel yucky. :( Will go to the Dr. on Monday if I am still sick, but I am trying to keep my spirits up. :)

Ady said...

I have too many work in progress projects. I'll be working on our Ohio trip from your retreat from last year. We definitely took to many pictures but I refuse not to use them all. BTW, the NSD kit is adorable... HUGZ

leana said...

My current work in progress is getting ready for my 3rd to be born!

I am in the process of getting myself scrapbook room, closet, and kitchen cabinets organized. Huge mess but will be worth it in the end. Please pick me, I need a break and this would be a perfect kit for me to play with!!!

Julie said...

My WIP is a year in review album for 2009. I just decided to do this, so I made a March page, and now have to do Jan and Feb and one for April.

I am picking the pics, and making the pages, then letting the kids tell me what to journal. Isn't that cute!!??

Linda F. said...

So much of my life is a work in progress! My daughter is having her first baby (our first grandchild) in August. Add to that my husband's recent diagnosis with Parkinson's Disease, and you have lives constantly changing. It seems like once again I've become the "anchor" for my family. But that's okay. Without change there is no growth, and without growth there is no progress!

Karen said...

I'm in the first week of a new exercise program: three Zumba classes a week, and two Pilates classes. I'm hoping with careful eating this will help me lose the last few pounds I put on over the winter (after losing a nice amount last fall!) I never imagined I'd have to spend so much of my retirement at the gym!

Amy said...

Thanks to Laina's post a few days ago, I'm working on a photo album of my (immediate) family reunion which took place at Disney World a few weeks ago. We have over 1400 photos between us! I was so thrilled to see Laina's idea - I ran to JoAnn's and bought the same album and am getting ready to start printing out photos. Thanks Laina for giving me a solution to my problem!

Traicee said...

Love everyone's comments- we are busy women!!! I am in the process of trying to get my garden back in order after about 2 years of neglect. I went through some difficult times, and just didn't have the energy or desire to garden. My yard used to be the best in the neighborhood, then this spring I started getting landscaping cards on my front porch- time to get my garden beautiful again!

Alex said...

My current work in progress is ME!!

Scrapping wise, I am working on a layout about my favorite song. It took me a bit to narrow it down, but once I gave it some REAL thought it wasn't actually that difficult. It is Imagine by John Lennon. Now it I had a top 5 list, THAT would be hard to narrow down!!

Julie said...

I'm working on my third Week In The Life Album. I've done the same week each year since I took Ali's album track at CKU-Detroit

evilwoman said...

I'll see you May 9th. I can't wait to scrap all day. I'm working on Easter and a 1987 vacation to Germany & Italy.

Anonymous said...

I am working to catch up on scrapbooking my daughter's first year. She's 14 months and I'm still working on 10 months. I need some inspiration and a new kit would help!

Brenda Neff said...

I'm taking the In Loving Memory class right now. That's my biggest WIP! Very emotional thing to do

Jayne said...

I have several "works in progress!"
Always have a scrappy page going currently a trip to the mountains. I have paint chips spread all over trying to decide what color to paint the master bedroom and I just finished meeting with a landscaper in teh hopes of him being able to help me with my vision for the backyard! :)

Anonymous said...

My work in progress is finding balance between family, kids' activities, a full-time job, volunteering and trying to find some time for me!!

pink said...

Well my yard is definitely a work in progress.....one that feels like it will never end. :) Love having a new house, but there is a ton of work getting a lawn and flower gardens in.

Scrap-wise I need to pull together some layouts for DS's high school graduation open house.

Celeste B. said...

I am in the process of losing about 8 pounds that I have gained since November. Back to trying to eat better and exercise like crazy.

Andi said...

My life is a work in progress. I never thought I'd be going back to school and changing careers in my 40's.

Brianna said...

Our finances are currently a work in progress. After a couple years of starting on it we are finally starting to see some results. My hubby is working 2 jobs, and I have taken in a little girl during the week to help with the income. It will take a while, but we are committed to following our plan to get rid of all this debt!!

nursela said...

My WIP is trying to find a job and/or possibly going back to school and I'm almost 50! It is quite a job to go back at my age and to possibly change careers.

Robin said...

I am in the process of completing my degree in Criminal Justice. Scrapbook wise I am working on my niece's 16th mini birthday album.

Keitha said...

I'm trying to finish up some pages and minibooks that resulted from online classes; I can never keep up! The real challenge though, is that when my computer crashed I totally lost not only my class materials, but notes, thoughts and journaling that I'd already compiled for these classes - it's really hard reconstructing it all.

Mindy said...

My whole life is a WIP but today I started LOAD '09: a layout a day for May! I'm determined to keep up!

Klick36 said...

I am working on decluttering my home...which leaves me with little time for scrapbooking...BUT I am still managing to fit it in:)

In the process of a remembrance book for my MIL about her mother, who passed away in September. Hard, and yet rewarding too.

Ginajam said...

I'm still in the process of unpacking boxes from our move almost three months ago! It seems to be taking a long time, but I also just had a baby 4 months ago, as well. That takes away a lot of my time...but it' so worth it! Happy NSD!!

Tara Piper said...

My Work in Progress is pricing items for a garage sale to be help in 2 weeks.

I am in the process of some home makeover projects. I am working on getting my journaling caught on my Project 365.

Kim Scraps! said...

I would love some fun mail in the midst of this busy time. My work in progress will be to pack up my craft room since we have to move. However, I am keeping aside important stuff to still scrapbook with!

kimosabescraps said...

well, life surely is a work in progress.. besides the millions of ideas for art projects I have swimming around in my head.. I also have a few lists for both my home.. garage.. and mud room... a fresh coat of paint and cleaning the gutters.. no fun but necessary to clean away the clutter!

Tambur said...

My work in progress is a long ongoing process....it's focusing on living a healthy life. I have been on a journey to better living for a few years now. And this is only the beginning.

Ginny said...

I'm in the process of organizing photos and my scrap stuff. Hoping it will inspire me to scrap & get out of my rut!

I have so many WIP ...I wouldn't know where to start!! Quilting, knitting, scrapbooking a BOM album...the list goes on and on!! Thanks for the chance to win!! I love your blog!! :)

Molly U. said...

My WIP is my Mom's scrapbook of her life. She has terminal cancer and she is helping me do it as I sit with her and she gives advice and tells me about certain pictures. We live in different cities and I am staying with her now and we do small bits and pieces at a time. I am so happy that she can see my Work in Progress.

Anonymous said...

I am working on a mini album that will have random photos from birth to graduation for my ds. My dh is working on making me a enclosed rose garden for Mother's day. That will be my next WIP!!

My WIP is my health and body! I am starting a new weight loss venture in mid-May to improve my health.

jmbdkrous said...

I am attempting to organize closets and get a handle on all the clothes my three kids seem to be growing out of on a daily basis. Getting caught up on my pictures is always a WIP!

jeanie nieva said...

i am in the process of completing our diy's for the wedding. :)

Mary said...

Life wise, we are in the process of moving and buying a new house. Scrapbooking wise, I am in the process of making my sister's wedding album and I am happy to say, it is my best work yet. It is so fun to do. Healthwise, I am trying to get back in shape for waterski season and summer and eating healthier. It feels really good when I have a good workout and gives me more energy to scrapbook!

pebblesjns said...

Scrapbook wise my work in progress is finishing all of the class projects from CKC last weekend. In life, my work in progress is growing a baby :) Now that I'm on bedrest, that's about all I can do!

Angela L. said...

I have SO many unfinished projects because I never seem to complete anything that I start (no, I am not proud of it either!) Top of my list has been converting my now teenaged son's bedroom from a lil' boy's room to a teenager's oasis. Scrapbooking wise is that I have been starting my wedding album (in my head of course) for about 2 years now! The NSD kit is such a lovely kit and an awesome prize!

Lavimom said...

I'm in the process of "beautifying" our front deck with potted plants. My first time trying out my "green thumb."

OMG so many projects. Two cards-one b-day, one Mother's day. A banner to do and hang. The word HOME to scrap and display. And lastly, a metal sheet to frame and decorate for a kitchen memo board.

Kim M said...

My bathroom, I have been in the process of re-painting/papering for quite some time. I am soo ready to be done!

Sharon said...

Ha! After reading your post I started thinking, and I realized that right now, my WHOLE LIFE is a work in process LOL. I'm in the process of finding a house to but, in the process of freshening up the one we own now, also in the process of starting a family (no luck yet :( though)...I have a ton of scrap projects half way done, and a cork board project I'm almost done with....oh whoa! My list could go on and on. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I am sorting through my HUGE stash and working on making a box just for my 2 younger boys, ages 7 & 9, that they can use to make their scrappy pages with. I am also working on a heritage page.

Wendy said...

I am in the process of organizing/cleaning out my craft room so that we can move my stuff in to share an office with my husband. My daughter's toys have taken over the living room and she is in desperate need of a playroom. Oh, and I am also trying to get some stamping/scraping in while organizing.

Wendy Su-Cole said...

Hmmm...I am still in the process of organizing my scraproom. I cannot seem to find the "right" baskets for my Crop in Style Units.

Heather said...

My work in progress is trying to get my house cleaned up better and more organized. Soccer season has definitly put it on the back burner but I am slowly making progress. The warmer weather also helps with keeping the creatures behind the mess outside at bay ;)

CathyB said...

This weekend we are switching my teenage daughter's bedroom with my 2 toddler girl's bedroom. We are painting, decorating, new curtains, the whole shebang. Lots of work, but so fun! Have a great NSD!

I am in the process of losing some excess weight that's been dragging me down and creatively, I am in the progress of being more "free" and allowing myself to just be. I have decided that I AM an artist...not just a crafter. =]
