time to scrapbook!
I know I talk about this all the time, but it’s so amazing… I have indulged myself, and for the last 2 nights, slowly scrolled through all my digital photo files. The truth is that I need to be archiving and saving photos to disks… I need to come up with a system that will work for me. anyway… it’s been such a rush of emotions and memories… not to mention the overwhelming feeling that I need to scrapbook. It’s been awhile since I scrapbooked for ME. for the fundamental purposes of remembering, preserving and celebrating life…
I guess that one of the draw backs of my chosen career path, most of my creative efforts are put toward new product, book or article projects, class and presentation material and support… instead of just simply pages of my life. I mean, some of that happens along the way… but I noticed, as I was looking through the photos, that some very important, key events and memories haven’t been captured or recorded. In particular, the events that will take a couple pages to tell the whole story.
So I made a decision. This week I am going to scrapbook.
I am putting off everything that can be, and I am going to enjoy the process and tell the stories. Before pregnancy eats more of my brain cells! Luckily, for me… when I scrapbook my work benefits… I find new and fun ways to teach and promote uses of my products. I get new ideas for products and I get the joy of sharing the ideas… even cooler, none of these things I will create this week are under any obligation, contract, confidentiality agreement or timeline. It’s just the real deal…
i’ll share what I am working on… as the week progresses.
My Photography 101 class starts this week at BPS. I am excited for the excuse to make some effort on my photography….
So what I am telling you is that to some degree, I am blowing off my “work” responsibilities… all those to-do’s…for the rest of the week…gone. I am going to play. I am going to recharge my creative brain and remember what I love so much about my HOBBY… (not my WORK)… there is a fine line, but one definitely exists!
As for right now… my eyes are sooo heavy… must close them!
