I have a horrible habit that has resulted in these scrapbook pages completed… when I am totally stressed out, and deadlines are bearing down… without fail, I retreat into recreational scrapbooking. i haven’t taken very many photos of Connor, nor have I taken the time to work on a baby announcement, or focus on trying to get a great photo for the announcement. And now, this little boy is suddenly just over 3 weeks, and my head is still spinning just a bit! somehow, the scrapbooking centers me. relaxes me. and makes me happy. I love to scrapbook. I love to enjoy the photos, and the feelings. Especially late at night. And I have totally be regretting the staying up late the last few nights when the morning comes and I have huge bags under my eyes, but at the same time, my soul needs the quiet, heidi time. It’s so precious to me, and I guess these days, I have to pay a higher price than usual for it. so… I thought I would share. I will be appearing on the QVC craft day on August 14th and I have the opportunity to present 5 new kits. So I will be able to use these samples on air for a couple of the kits, so see… killing 2 birds w/ one stone! I will be giving a pre-view of what I’m presenting as we get a little closer. I have to say, I am quite OUT of practice creating little baby boy pages. I really dug into my paper stash… Scenic Route, My Mind’s Eye, Crate paper…and of course, who can scrapbook without Bazzill Cardstock. (impossible). The other recent obsession: my Journaling Spot Stamps. Each sku has 5-6 clear stamps that are in the shape of my ever-enjoyable journaling spots. You can see that I have used them on every layout. I can’t get enough of them! when I get on a ‘kick’… it’s hard to get off it! connor is such a sweet angel baby! I just love him! We all do! he is a joy.
