PL project life SMW

Scrapbooking is one of my passions!  I love to create. I love to sew. I love to craft. Crafting for me includes, drawing, sketching, painting, crochet, quilling, paper making, card making, stamping, embossing, glass etching, bead making, beading, jewelry making, decorating, repurpose, reuse, recycle, up cycle……..

Back to scrapbooking. I have scrapbooked in one form or another for 35 years. I was rubber stamping before it was popular back in 1990- Yeah for me. Somebody give me a GFSF cookie please. (GF=gluten free, SF=soy free)

Project Life=PL Becky Higgins has struck gold.  First with her sketches & sketch books now with PL.
The first sketch book I bought was hers many years ago. It's still to this day one of my favorites.
I love PL & Becky. I have bought some of her PL protectors & PL digital kits. I've downloaded many of her PL digital freebies too.

I wish I had the energy to scrap every day of our lives for  1 yr. I'm so many years behind.
I'm using the PL format to finish up my pages as fast as I can.  No longer do I care if a page of my layout is a work of art. I will if the mood hit take a while do a page.  I think the days of me spending 2 hours on a scrapbook page title are long gone.   I'm really into SMW. I don't think there should be rules in my personal scrapbook pages other than to get the photos on the page. Get pages in albums.

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year
I love the beginning of the year.  A fresh start.  The truth is we can make a fresh start anytime or any day.
When 2014 come to a close. I hope I've put myself closer to the top of the priority list. Especially improving my health.  Making more conscious choices of how I treat my body & my whole self.
Embracing everyday with gratitude & purpose.  To enjoy my wonderful family daily. To learn to not hate house work.  To truly understand I'm teaching my son life lessons with my actions.  Have a warm welcoming beautiful.  Not a picture perfect home but a home that is inviting & fun.  I want visitors to our home to comfortable & special.

I want to entertain more often inside our home.  Begin the process of transforming our backyard.  Build in the covered patio.  See the heart & soul of people.  Ignore the outside package. Enjoy my journey.  Learn from every aspect; the health issues should teach me their are others in worse pain with no hope.

What do I want in the decades to come? What do I want in the year to come? What do I want in the month to come?  What do I want in the week to come? What do I want in the day to come? What do I want in the hour to come?  What do I want in the moment to come?

To fulfill my souls desires!  To really live my way & to be OK with everyone not embracing my choices.
