Okay, so I'm not done, but I'm so close. I could show the layouts that I've done so far, but I think it would be much nicer to see it all together.
I mean it.
I started this blog for fun, family, friends and accountability (that's why I mean it above). I decided to make something once a week as a challenge to see if I really do like making stuff or if I just think I would like to. I have a friend who once told me that I just like the idea of scrapbooking more than the actual scrapbooking. That is somewhat true. I love the products available. The stickers, paper and other embellishments are like candy to my eyes. I can't help but collect them whenever something inspires me. With money being tight now it's gotten much easier to resist temptation, but I still see a lot of beautiful things. Fortunately, I like to make a wide variety of things and all my goodies can be used in a variety of crafty endeavors. So... back to my friends comment, I wanted to find out if what she said was true and test myself this year. Do I like making things or do I just like collecting? And I wanted to see if I think I have any talent. Am I good at what I do? Do others like it? Should I have not let Rose's talent deter me from working on my own all these years?
Finally, even if no one else particularly admires what I make, do I still want to create things for my own pleasure?
My first-child, perfectionist tendencies tell me probably not, but that's what Just Make Something Mondays are all about helping me discover.
[Here's a shout-out to the one person whom I know will read this, my sweet sister Kymberly. Thanks, it really means a lot to me.]
I'll have to tell you about her later. She's pretty awesome.
