Log Your Memories

I came across this book online before Christmas and I got really excited because I scrapbook chronologically and I am, right now, about 4 years behind! When I saw Kristen Rutten's Log Your Memory book, I knew it was the perfect thing for me!!!! Based on the idea of a daytimer, this book helps you record your daily memories for scrapping later. You can write down what photos you took, what events happened, how you felt, etc. Also, it has great little photo ideas, memory joggers and scrapping ideas!!!
I highly recommend this to anyone who has trouble remembering any details or importance of the photos you took by the time you scrap them!

First Creations of 2010

Good day everyone! Here are my first creations for 2010. I LOVE to crochet baby blankets and lucky me has a dear friend who just had a baby girl! This is the first time I knew the sex of the baby when I started the blanket and I really enjoyed making a PINK blanet. :D
This is the card I made to go with it. Didn't turn out the way it looked in my head, but oh well....it's still pretty cute! Have a great day!

52 Pick Me Up

Happy New Year everyone! Glad to be back to regularly scheduled programming. I seem to be way more productive now than I was prior to Christmas, so for that, I am grateful.

For those wondering, my parents are doing well. There are still broken bones to heal, but for the most part they are feeling much better and the insurance claim is moving along.
I see that I have a couple followers now! YAY! Thank you for supporting me. :)

Today I want to talk about something called 52 Pick Me Up.

This was an idea that I originally heard about from Andrea Wiebe.

Her blog can be found here: http://ajourneysofar.blogspot.com/
The idea behind 52 Pick Me Up is to challenge yourself. Set a goal. As you are achieving your goal, reward yourself by scrapping a little momento or reminder each week, hence, 52 cards will be created throughout the year.

My goal in 2009 was just to live and not take life too seriously. As I learned more about myself I worked on my Pick Me Up cards, and though I fell behind and never did finish 52 of them, I am going to start again in 2010 and continue on to hopefully complete my set!
Here are some of my favorite lessons from 2009:
