Some of you were asking how you kept track of or organized your favs from Task 11 so you could know which ones applied to that task. Here's what I did:

Clicked to add them to my favs here on the site
Copied the url
Pasted the url into my JJ task list I'm keeping in ONE NOTE (my favorite piece of software - well, behind my scrapping software :giggle_bear:
Added a note with each addy as to what struck me about the LO that I wanted to remember and try in one of mine in the future.

Great tip, Kay. I am going to do that very thing later today before I add more favorites. I am just starting to get the hang of using ONE NOTE. I used an open doc in Word for so long, it is hard to break that habit.

One note is awesome! It's a Microsoft product. It doesn't usually come with most of the Office packages though. I bought mine just after I got my laptop 2 years ago and I use it all the time! Love it! You might be able to get a free trial from microsoft. I seem to recall it being around $100 but I don't remember for sure.

The next task is coming up!

I got ONE NOTE when I purchased the student edition of Microsoft - they usually have a good deal & you can load it on more than one computer. A good idea if you have kids that need to do word processng.

I make screenshots of all my favorite layouts and keep them in their own "notebook" sorted within tabs that say how many photos are on a page. That way, when I'm in a hurry and want to scraplift and I know how many photos I'm using I can just go straight there and find what I'm looking for. It always puts a link to the page you took the screenshot from so it's always easy to go back to if needed. Love it!!!

I love ONE NOTE. It is my virtual filing cabinet for EVERYTHING!!!! My medical info, my scrapping challenges, shopping lists ... I really used it when we were looking at houses before we moved. I love the fact that the links go in with your cut/paste action so you can go back to the original website for more info.

The more you use it the more you'll love it - much easier than all these papers I keep going through trying to decide how to file.

And now my Task 12 will be so much easier because of the way I kept the info from Task 11 in my JJ 2010 section in my ScrapBooking notebook.

I forget I have one note. Should look into it more often.

Funny when I saw the task, I was going to start my lift right then, but thought I would wait. Already had the picture in mind for the LO I want to lift.

Task 16 ... I love these photo shot tasks! Used my favorite January coffee mug and started shooting. Today is a gorgeous day here in the Berkshires ... might need to do some exploring and photo walking today.

I decided to photograph the heart-shaped bank my dad made for me when I was a kid. I realized I hadn't ever taken a picture of it, and since it's very dear to me I figured now is as good a time as any to make sure I remedy that!

Oh powers that be..... my task #4 has just been accepted for publication and had to be removed from gallery. Can it still count? It was there and there are comments on it really.


Did anyone answer your question via PM or anything? Did I miss a response or have you not been answered yet? CONGRATS on being accepted for publication. We'll totally count it for the game! We'll be able to see from the date you posted it and your supplies and the comments and everything that you did the task :) You're good to go! Well done :)

I was busy today and disappointed when I realized darkness was falling and I still hadn't done today's task. Then I took a while deciding what to photograph. I was thinking I want to photograph something I'd like to scrap about. Finally settled on my fruit bowl in my kitchen. :)

I looked at about 5 members' profiles before I found one that allows comments!

And I just added a paragraph in the About Me section of my profile -- hadn't even noticed that section before I saw it on someone else's profile -- so there's lots of stuff about me for all to read! :)

Time flies. LOL

I had some trouble with the theme search - finally searched the theme I was thinking about for the layout as there really was no specific theme to the photo. Bet ya'll can't tell what I'm leaning toward... ;) :giggle_bear:

Well, I can't believe it. I actually caught up on all the tasks in JJ. This is a major miracle for me. I'm always good at starting a project, but never quite seem to finish it.

So I'm caught up and I might finish this project. And on time.

Off to start the "Who I Am" class. This will be a toughie talking about myself and taking pictures of me as well. Not so comfortable with that, but I'll work on it.

I've been verifying within the thread. Keep watching each tasks requirement because there are two more little tasks at the end of the month that will require an email, but as far as all the tasks so far, if the requirement says to post to the thread that's all you have to do :)
