Hey My Peeps,
What comes to mind when you hear “Scrapbooking”? Do you grimace, or do you say, “UMMM Hello?! Where’s the Crop?!” “Take My Money..”
The term Scrapbooking tends to get me two responses, “Who has time for that?” or “Yes Ma’am.” I love Scrapbooking, and I don’t actually have time for it…LOL! I make the time because it means something to me. I’m a Momma, Wife, Sister, Aunty and Friend. My days are jam packed. My schedule is written in pencil. Why pencil?? Because, shit happens and I am always ready to take it on. Sometimes, alot of the time, that means rearranging my shedule in order to get everything done.
So why or how with the Scrapbooking? It’s my therapy. It can get expensive, but only if I let it be. And yet, still cheaper than a therapist. It’s my way of celebrating our crazy, perfectly imperfect life. A life that I dreamed about as a kid and PRAYED for. It gets hella hard and there are days I throw my hands in the air and say SCREW IT!! NETFLIX and Chill, I’ll do it tomorrow…
I Scrapbook because we’re not promised tomorrow and today can be hard! I want my my kids to see that life aint easy, and everything worth having is worth working hard for. I also want them to look back at our photos and see how happy we always were and I want them to have my Scrapbooks and know how happy and truly blessed I felt. Even when it was hard.
Scrapbooking may not be for you. Maybe you like the idea of it but don’t feel creative enough. My advice? Try it, you may fall in love with it. Or you can pay me to do it for you LOL! ;0) Get creative guys!! Get messy, take lots of photos. You don’t have to scrap it all! XOXO
