8.4.10

Wow, it's been over a month since I've blogged. Sorry about that. :) Just been a busy summer and I've been taking a bit of a creative break. I did some scrapbooking to show some of the products I had at different vendor events this summer, so these layouts show some of those papers and embellishments. I'm just not "feeling" scrapbooking lately. I hate that...but it's true. I'm trying to think of a way I can do lots of journaling to tell stories using a few photos and just very minimal scrapbooking supplies. I have these tall 4x8 albums in my mind for some reason. I don't know....just more on the path of creative cooking and embroidery lately. I go in phases, but this has been a long lag of no scrapbooking. Just doing what I feel like doing right now. And SO GLAD I'm not on a design team or doing assignments, lol. I love being free from that!

How is your summer going? Noah starts school in two weeks. 5th grade. I'm excited for him....sad for me. But he's going to have lots of fun this year. :)


Layouts: First is October Afternoon's "Fly a Kite".....Second is Jenni Bowlin's "Playdate"....Third is Pink Paislee's "Queen Bee." I'll have all of these papers at the Heart of TX Scrapbook Club retreat in a few weeks.

Jennifer,
I am so glad to see you're back for a while. I hope your scrapbooking "jones" returns as you pursue these new projects.

Jennifer,
Such beautiful scrapbook layouts from someone who is not feeling too "scrapbookie". I do know what you mean though. Sometimes I feel like I "used to scrapbook" because so much time goes by between my actually producing a scrapbook page. In all my years of creating though I have learned to respect what I'm feeling and to go with the flow. Sounds like thats what you are doing. If one creative avenue shuts down for a bit go with something else for a while. We eventually come back or not. Either way is OK.
Cheers,
Sara
