I haven't scrapbooked or been crafty in a long time.
Too long. I missed it.
I love my blog and I love my blog books, but I love to scrapbook, too.
I am years behind on my scrapbooking (and always will be, I'm guessing...) but I'm not ready to completely give it up. I enjoy it too much.
At Gretchen's birthday party, we got out Sophie and Lawson's first year scrapbooks. They loved looking through them. (I did, too!)
I got inspired. I wanted to create again. I wanted to be crafty.
I had seen this project on another blog. It was a perfect combination of two of my favorite things: scrappy/craftiness and organization.
So Friday night, I got together with one of my favorite "organizery" friends. (That's a word, isn't it, Danielle?) And together, we turned this...
I made one for myself and one for another organizery friend (who loved it!). I didn't think to take a picture of Danielle's, but it was shades of pink and blue with glittery snowflakes. So cute! We both decided we didn't need an entire notebook for just one year, so instead of the different divider sections, we're just going to use a different section for each year. So these cute little books will last us 4 years!
After Danielle left, I was motivated to keep working, so I pulled out this little scrapbook I started months ago. Spring Break, maybe?? I ended up working on it until after 2 am, and I got so much done!
The kids and I spent hours up in the loft over the weekend. I was motivated and inspired and just wanted to keep working! Only 3 more pages to go and I will have this fun little book done!!
