Project 365

Is a great way to visualize capture all that 2009 has in store for us. My photography friends let me onto this project and then I read about it in Creating Keepsakes. I'm gonna jump on board and participate. Now I just need to think of a creative way to scrap this challenge; perhaps I will check out Becky Higgins' blog for ideas or make up my own, that I'm not sure of but what I will try to do is post the pics here.

I've been busy this past week thinking of ways to make my crop events exciting for my gals. I've put together some awesome make-n-takes and am developing monthly sketch challenges. I cannot wait to reveal them at the crop this weekend.

I've really enjoyed my maternity leave. Obviously spending quality time with my girls is the best but I'm at the point where, although I'm still tired from waking up for feedings, Reese doesn't have me up quite as much. So I've hit the gym to work off these baby pounds (and there's a lot to work off) but the fun part is that I am scrapping while she is sleeping during the day instead of napping. With all this extra time to scrap I am finding my creativity is flowing again. It's been a while since I've had the mental freedom for this. Between work and children it seemed like that projects I was doing last year were good but not FABULOUS and many were scraplifted. I was under a lot of stress. So I am enjoying the changes I've experienced now that my mind is less cluttered. I am going to make a promise to myself to not slip back into the rut. I have January's sketch in my head. I will post it once I draw it.

I'm signing off to go take my picture of the day.
