Hi! I’m so glad you found me. I assume you are a kindred lover of everything photo, too.
Maybe you, too, love being creative, cutting and making photos pop off the page. Or maybe you aren’t creative AT ALL and you think if you hang out on pages like mine that you may get some ideas that will make you LOOK creative…
Either way, I’m glad you’re here. I love scrapbooking with others, even if it’s virtual.
I have a crazy busy life. Sometimes I feel like Dorothy, whose house was picked up by the cyclone, spinning totally out of control. But when I scrapbook, life slows down. When I look at my photos, my family, my pets, my favorite getaways; life slows down, and I get that warm, serene feeling… and ALL IS GOOD.
People ask me, how do I find the time? Well, for me, it’s like anything else that I make time for. I have to fit it in. There are so many things that I spend my daily time on, only to wake up and have to do it again!!!
I saw a meme the other day that said, “I really don’t see the point in cleaning if my family is going to continue to live here.” That’s the truth, isn’t it?! This morning I will wipe off the counters, and tonight, do it again. With a scrapbook, once it’s done – it’s done. And OHHH, what a feeling. Shutting that book. Showing it off. Looking at it over and over. It’s the best pick-me-up. Even more therapeutic is seeing someone you love look at it. To see their eyes tear up when you watch them, knowing what page they are reading and hoping for the response that never disappoints.
What are some strategies YOU use to get your albums done?
