Back with week 3 of Project Life.
January always seems like a great time for beginnings. A new years worth of contacts, my first fox sighting, organizing and pizza nights becoming a regular thing.
Around this time I was trying to re-focus on sharing more on the much neglected blog. I would start up many posts on my iphone while waiting for the girls at pick up time from school, but hesitated to post from my phone knowing I wanted to tweek it or spellcheck before sharing. Though when I got home the last thing I wanted to do was sit in front of the computer. **sigh** It was a no win situation that needed to be addressed.
Another item that needs to be addressed is my scrap stash. It's time to purge some supplies. I've come to a point where I have to seriously curb my buying. There I said it (again). I will of course buy the nessescities like adhesive and my favorite releases from Bella Blvd, but no more without using it up. I need to "scrap the stash".....I just have to come up with a plan!
Currently I'm working on March, and I must admit to wishing I had not accumulated so many PL items. I'm feeling forced to do this project until I use my stash....which could be a few years!! I miss scrapbooking 12x12. I know I've whined about it before and I know I could put a page together here and there, but knowing how far behind I already am on PL prohibits me. I'm OCD about it. I don't want to get further behind but I'm also feeling like my hobby is being forced.
When I feel forced to do something I dig my heels in and we get nowhere. **sigh** I need to be faster with my pages but I want to remember WHY I took a picture of my contacts, or WHY I took a picture of shoes...journaling the reason behind the picture is important to me. Sometimes it can be a few word explanation and other times the story needs room to be told. I want future generations to understand WHY.
