I’m super tempted to start weekly pocket scrapping again, or just P52-like scrapping, but I feel like the results would be pretty lame. It’s just like how I have 100+ unfinished blog post drafts, I end up not following through because I feel lame.
My life doesn’t have much variety anymore, Jeff and I work all day long… I take a lot of pictures of the dogs and my food… and then the week starts over again. We hardly ever travel anymore because of the cost and lack of time. We don’t have kids, and have no desire to have kids. Our work lives are almost completely confidential, so I can’t include any of that…
But, I also feel like that sort of project would force me to get out of the ruts I’m constantly finding myself in. For example, right now I’m in another lack-of-motivation-to-exercise rut. Maybe scrapping each week about my activities will force me to be less pathetic.
It would also help me to use all the scrap stuff I keep buying.
Part of it is I feel lame scrapping just pictures of the dogs resting, all the time. Like this photo from yesterday, they’re sunbathing in our empty garden beds… that are going to remain empty because of the drought.
But, the scrapping is for me. It could be all journaling and that would be meaningful. And since it’s for me, I honestly don’t have to worry about the pages being perfect and up to snuff for things like CT work…
It’s really all about recording the memories. Like me going on a 48+ hour sugar binge for Valentine’s Day and my father in law’s birthday… these cupcakes were amazing.
I think I’m going to give it a go. I tried doing PLL before, but sticking to the standard templates killed me. I have plenty more in my stash now, so we’ll see!
