Make the time.
I certainly need to follow my own advice here.
I mean really.
At the top of my steps on a landing that could be a bedroom if walls were put up, is my craft room.
It's everything I want it to be, except it doesn't get used as much as I would like.
Everything is in order, everything is colorful, everything "spurns" creativity....but there just isn't enough time each day to get it used.
I'm sad about that. Because more than anything, I would love to have time each day to use it.
Along with my role as mom, employee, PTO member, etc., I'm a scrapbooker. I have been for years, but as life gets busier and busier, time to sit down and create gets harder and harder.
This is the scrapbook I use. It's made by Making Memories and it's a 3 ring binder. I LOVE it because you can get a lot of pages in it. Problem is, I bought it at Target a couple years ago, and they don't sell it anymore. Just my luck!
Yesterday, however, I sat down for a couple hours, and whipped out some pages.
When I say whipped, I mean whipped out as in quickly. I'm not sure why I'm sharing some of these, they are not up to my usual standards, but I'm showing you as proof that I sat down and did something.
I'm a year behind with pictures, and that's another thing that makes me sad. I don't mean I haven't taken pictures in a year, no, I take pictures almost everyday, but I'm a year behind in putting them in books.
So, without further ado, here is what I worked on. (disclaimer...for some reason, the pics turned out kinda fuzzy. Don't know if it was the lighting or the fact I didn't take the pages out of the plastic sleeves, or what...sorry.)
Since fall break, Thanksgiving, and Christmas break are around the corner, I know I'll get caught up, I usually do.
Moral of the story....TAKE time to do what you love.
I certainly need to heed my own advice.
