In the beginning

this blog is an attempt to capture my daily life as a daughter of God, wife, mom, and scrapbooker. it is just another tool to help me remember the daily musings of our family & the creative process to capture them for generations to come. I want to be able to share my thoughts, my passions, my lunacies, and my happiness.

God has given me a tremendous desire to create. Never knew it was there until 5 1/2 years ago. It has been growing and I don't know where it will lead me but if it is only for my family and friends, then that is great! I enjoy sharing this love of scrapbooking and the journey it has taken me & to see others embark on the same, yet very different journey.

so hang on my friends...let me try to inspire you today.

  • Take a bunch of random pictures of your daily life. It doesn't have to be posed or even include people, but do try to get yourself in one of them. Whatever it is you do today, capture it on your camera!
  • find a project you really like and try to make it yourself and make it your own!
  • Sit down and reflect on your blessings and joys. Make a scrapbook page about it!

that's about it for today. I am working on a TON of Christmas projects and will be posting them within the next few days. So I hope you visit again & let me know if you were inspired to do any of the things above!
