it all started as she carried all of her scrapbooks out to the living room to look through them.
i was in the office doing something and was happy to see that she likes to haul them out and look through them from time to time. i love that about her. i love that watching her reinforces why i scrapbook in the first place.
then, she said something that would take me aback, "Why don't you "normal" scrapbook anymore, Mom?"
huh? what do you mean? i thought to myself at first.... after all, i had been scrapbooking like a mad woman since about Oct or Nov of 2011, more than i had scrapbooked in years!!
i had done the December Daily, a day in the life, was attempting to take on Project Life so i thought that i had been scrapping my butt off!
so, i just asked her what she meant by that.
you see, to her, my 11 yr. old daughter, my scrapbooking has always been layouts that get put into books so she can look back through them at her leisure. lately, i had been doing more project based things--somewhat nontraditional, but memory keeping nonetheless.
i said, "you're right...i haven't been doing that type of memory keeping as much." i had been a little, but she has seen the layout production go down...way down the last few years...
so, i got busy. i had been struggling with PL in the first place and had set that aside.
i looked through my stack of photos and lovely supplies--it doesn't take much for me-- and have cranked a few out over this last week! :)
what i found that i LOVED was this first layout of taking a photo from 2003 and scrapping my heart. seeing how time flies, how they don't stay little and how badly i need this hobby of scrapbooking and photography to remember all of these little moments. :)
as i try to be more self disciplined and intentional with my life, i know that i need to do this, this type of memory keeping for me and my family.
it's all good.
i decided to show a pullback of my little "studio" set up to photograph these layouts. i laughed, but it worked great!!
i am not done with project life, either. just slower about it.
going to do the Feb month in review soon. we have lots going on this month!!
and March is almost upon us!! wow!
lots to share today!
