I love the creative process, the products (Pretty paper! Stickers! Yippee!!)and the introspection that it allows me. It helps me appreciate the gifts and blessings that I have in my life.
Many people in our scrapbook community participate in a project called "Week in the Life". It is a documentary project started by Ali Edwards where you "capture the simple everyday details of life with photos and words". So for 7 days, you carry your camera with you everywhere and make notes on your regular, everyday life. And at the end you compile your photos and stories into an album.
It is not about great, mind-blowing photography. It is about documenting your life and telling the story of where you are RIGHT NOW. I am going to share our Thursday with you.
We laughed and talked about my high school years. I am glad he is mine. I like him and love him. The fact that he will only be with us for one more year hits hard and often. The days were long, but the years so very short.
I love when the house begins to shut down, and everyone is off to their own rooms. I am blessed to have a husband who can't go to sleep with a messy kitchen. He makes sure that everything is clean and ready for the next day. The hum of the refrigerator is the only sound that floats thru the house. Feels so peaceful.
