This is the last week that I had prepared. So now I start again with blanket slates. Here I go...

Wow! It's been a long time since I've posted or done anything scrapbooking-wise. I had to *make* myself just work on something today because I had a moment to do so. Sure, I could mop the floors or put away laundry, but if I don't sit and be creative, IT WON'T HAPPEN! I'm not sure how moms even find time to scrapbook. Seriously. Or the brain power to find creative energy. I was just telling a friend the other day that it's easier for me to knit right now because the pattern tells me what to do.
Also, I'm not sure if I'm bored with Project Life, but I definitely need to change it up next year (which is right around the corner)! I even thought about doing it the old-school, non-digital way (which I very much doubt would actually happen because I have like ZERO space for such a thing right now). Oh, I so remember the days I had a craft room. Ha! A whole entire loft...sigh...*day dreaming* But I wouldn't trade my two little cuties for a whole house full of crafts.
I guess I just want to be free to do whatever I want and not have weeks, dates, and journaling hanging over me. I have to think about what I want to see years from now. Do I want to read what I did from Monday through Sunday? Do I want to remember funny quotes or things my kids did? Do I want to see weekly photos on my pages, or will monthly do? What do I want to remember? What do I want my kids to remember? That's good stuff to be thinking about.
This is what I DO know...I want to scrapbook. Digital scrapbook.
It's just a matter of finding the time and creative energy.

So, to be honest, I'm either bored with what I have as far as digital supplies go, or I'm just needing a new format for Project Life. I'm not sure, but I'm not as impressed with these pages. Or maybe it's just because I'm trying to get caught up and something is better than nothing. Ha!

Hello! I was waiting on Quent to edit some of his photos before posting this one. I even had Week 22 completed before this week. And then I hit a wall. But I think I'm ready to proceed. Yay!
I'm trying to add some of the funny things Jeralyn says to my pages. It's hard to keep track of them. I'll try my best.

Hello! I hope it's drier where you are! We've been getting lots and lots of rain! Like probably 14 inches in the last few days. Yikes!
So I have to say that scrapbooking a boy is a lot of fun! It's fun to mix it up a bit. There's a lot more girly scrapbooking kits out there, so the challenge is finding "boyish" type kits that I like--they are out there, I just have to search for them.
I started this page awhile ago and I forced myself to finish it today. I don't like sitting on the same page for too long. Of course he's not "trouble" yet, but Quent keeps reminding me that it will be different having a boy when he's older and more active. Ha!

Hello! Hope you had a happy weekend! We've had a lot of rain recently. Today someone was talking about it being summer and I seriously almost forgot that it's actually summer. We are wearing sweatshirts here!
I've been scrapbooking a little here and a little there. It's been fun!
I'm just picking out my favorite pictures to scrapbook. I love these two photos of my daughter, Jeralyn. She is such a delight! I think I may have to add some rhinestones to this page. Hmmm...

Hello! I decided to post a whole bunch of weeks all at once. These pages are super duper simple. I think I was bored with my digital scrapbooking supplies and I was trying to get caught up. I'm ok with that though...the photos speak volumes all on their own.

Hello! I'm back with Week 13 of Project Life. I've actually been scrapbooking too. I've been able to find a little bit of time here and there to scrap. I miss scrapping!
My Project Life pages are super simple right now. I'm actually thinking about doing a whole different format next year. I need simple right now, that's for sure!
