I am scrapbooking!
And it really, really makes me happy. If I only had one day left on earth, other than hug and love my family, I would truly want to spend it scrapbooking.... putting down memories that will last forever. It has been a long time since I made stuff just because I wanted to! And, these are my few days a year when Shannon (my best friend from Florida) and Sherrie (my awesome friend from Iowa) come to town to just make stuff!! I LOVE IT!! We are at my house this year so I did not have to move or pack a thing (TOTALLY ROCKS). It is just nice.
And, I got done one thing that has been hanging over my head for about 10 months.... I am a very laid back, non-chronilogical scrapbooker (because being behind made me feel like I was having a stroke), but I do these AWESOME Letters to my Dear Sweet Child boxes for the girls and I had not gotten Kalli's done for LAST year! It just hung over my head, and now it is COMPLETE! I am just thrilled.
I also did Kaya's for THREE (she turned four only a week ago) and I have both of theirs prepped and ready for next year. YEAH! I am just thrilled. Now I feel like I can create for the love of the memory and the story. It is going to be a fun few days.
And, if you are reading this, thanks. I know I am slacker blog girl of the year.... but life is busy and most of all GOOD. I hope to post some projects soon and do a newsletter.... but with teaching and the girls, I am just doing the best I can! Hope you are having an incredible 2009 so far. Even in hard financial times, I know we can do little things to capture memories. And it will make your heart feel happy!
