The Score

Inspiration: 10
Motivation: 0

Yep, I've got inspiration galore - projects to do, ideas to pursue, mini albums to make, gifts to prepare... I'm 100% inspired. And ZERO percent motivated. Every time I think about going down to my craft room I think, "Nah." and I don't go. It's even mostly clean and ready to craft in. But I just don't feel like it.

OH - and 2ps changed their format. How dare they take my uber-happy place and change it. Wah.

A New CJ!!

I got a new circle journal in the mail this week! It was Michelle's "Hold Dear" album. I've had a plan for many of the journals - what I wanted to do my LO on, which pictures I would use, etc. But I didn't know what I would do for this one.

For those of you who don't read our family blog or haven't heard yet, last week we discovered an ectopic pregnancy and went through the miscarriage and surgery that accompanied it. I had a few days of reflection, and some of what I realized inspired this LO.

We were supposed to do a LO about what we hold dear. I chose LIFE. The block journaling on the bottom of the second page reads "Each day is a gift; Use it well - you are not guaranteed another." There are two journaling tags under the photo that read... "This week I was reminded of just how precious life is. It is a gift from God and not my own. In the wake of a miscarriage I am more thankful for the daughter I have and the life she has been given. I hold dear my own life, for I am but a steward of it while I am on this earth. My life is HIS and I cherish this gift."

National Scrapbooking Day

Do you know how MUCH scrapbooking I have done today, on this great holiday?


nope. none. I haven't scrapped one bit today. It's sort of sad, really. I've talked to my best friend and my mom on the phone, I went to the library and park with Catherine and Tjabe, I went garage sale-ing with Taylor, but NO SCRAPPING.


... and I wanted to. I really did. I might have to go to the scraproom and make something now before Leif comes home from study group. But there's this pile o' laundry that needs to be put away.

Life. You want to scrapbook it, but it keeps getting in the way of scrapbooking.
