Another Day....

Here we are another day. I am still struggling with my creativity. I'm trying to make my husband a scrapbook of his 24 yrs. Naval service and I'm struggling with getting pages completed for it. I want it to be something special that he can enjoy looking back through over the years and remembering.

I started this book many years ago when I was using Creative Memories stuff. My style has changed dramatically over the years and so going back and trying to redo pages from years ago is difficult due to having cut the pics into different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately it was before I knew any better. I don't have the negatives to have the pics reprinted either.

I'm sure it will all come together in the end; just don't know when that end will be. Hopefully before he retires.

I often think about and wonder why I scrapbook. Will my family even care to go back and look at any of these pages I am creating? Does this time I'm spending really matter to anyone other t…

Happy Easter!

Well here we are another Easter; time is flying by again. We attended church services this morning & then just hung out the rest of the day. I had all the intentions of doing lots of scrapbooking today and did absolutely none. I use to so enjoy spending time scrapping & stamping and haven't hardly done any recently. I so need to finish Joe's Navy career album and just can't get myself motivated to do much with it. He will be retiring this summer and I'm not even half done with his book. Somewhere, somehow there has got to be something that will give me the motivation I need to complete this project. I would very much like to present it to him at his retirement.

Shopping disgust me

I went shopping today for something to wear tomorrow to church. I wound up completely disgusted with how every thing looks on me. I don't want to be 20 again, but I sure would like to look it. Everything is heading south more quickly than I would like. Unfortunately I don't have the money to get it fixed. I believe wholeheartedly that plastic surgery is a good thing!

I don't know what happened but most days I feel as if some where along the way the life has been sucked out of me. I use to love to wear make-up & cute clothes and over the years that has gone completely by the wayside. I don't know how to get back my old self. Lately I have been thinking about the way I use to be & feel and I miss the old me.

I want to be the cute, hip mom that my boys won't be embarrassed to be seen with.

Struggling with my creativity

I am working on a scrapbook of my husbands 24 years Naval service. Unfortunately, when I started this album 8 years ago I had just started scrapping and now that I am trying to redo the layouts I am struggling with what to do with them. I know my struggle is coming from the fact that I cut the photos into all kinds of different shapes and since we don't have the negatives I can't get the photos reprinted. I hope that I can get this album done before his retirement this summer.

Why am I doing this?

I'm not sure why I decided to set up a blog. I don't know that there is anything in my life that will be interesting enough for others to care reading about. But here goes nothing I guess.
