Hi there. Just trying to get a couple layouts loaded before I step out the door. Mondays are always full of madness for me because they are my "get things done" days. Cleaning, errands, grocery store, you know, all the fun stuff! I have been trying to make myself take at least an hour to scrapbook before the madness starts. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Whatever, ya get what ya get, right?!ninterrupted bliss. I am currently scrapping our most recent trip to San Francisco. As you can imagine, we have many photos from that trip. I even managed to get several of my husband. Used patterned paper from Sassafras. The embellishments are from my never ending stash.

Sometimes, I get so focused on my next step that I forget to savour and enjoy where I am right now. Scrapbooking helps me slow down create and focus but, sometimes I get so wrapped up with getting great shots that I don't truly experience the actual event that I am trying to capture. I am a voyeur in my own life. It is difficult for me to achieve balance. I want to capture the memories because, these days are just speeding by but, I also want to really live my life. Focus on what is important and enjoy all of the little things that in fact, make up the big things. As a working mom I face the same struggles that we all face: trying to find balance! Balance between family, church and work, plus all the little bits in between. In can be overwhelming. Thankfully, my moment of zen comes when I am creating.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend and have fun creating.
