Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe its 2010?? So do you refer to that as twenty ten or two thousand and ten? Just curious! I personally say twenty ten, so much easier, but seriously they both sound odd to me!!
Anyway I uswed my surprise day off yesterday to get some new years cleaning done in my scrap room. I have sooooo many projects that I started and just never got back around to finishing!! I couldn't believe it! And now is not the time to start them because I have all my Christmas/New Years picture to scrap!! (which is TONS!) And I found all these cool tools and supplies that I forgot I had because they got put in a drawer when something new came along. Guess its time to try some "new" techniques on my pages with all my old supplies :)
One of the project that I have been working on for the last year and a half has been my "that's Life" album. It is an idea I got from one of the Memory Makers book called. . . you guessed it That's Life. Basically I just took each breakdown from the book and have been making pages for those topics. The lastest one I created was for 'things I would miss'. This category actually took me awhile to think of something. I wanted it to be creative. But finally inspiration struck and I set off to create my page. Thanks to my sister!
I based my page off the lyrics to trace adkins 'you're gonna miss this' song. Sharing the coach with my sister has always been a challenge, whether we are watching a movie or reading books, whatever. She likes to stretch out and take up at least 3/4 of the space. She doesn't mind jostling you a bit or tucking her cold feet underneath you. It has always been so annoying!! But lately she has been spending more and more time away from home. And as I sit on the coach alone I have come to miss that push-shove relationship we have always shared there. As silly as it sounds some days I wish I was squished onto 1/4 of the couch with a cold foot constantly jostling me! Funny how those little annoying things become part of our routines and oddly enough something we sometimes look forward to!
As I have time I wanna pull out the rest of my album and share it with you. It was definitely a challenging yet fun project. Or should I say is, since of course that is another work in progress!
