Do you have hobbies?

I have a few. I used to have more but I’m sure that all of you know that when you have kids it puts some limits on your life. One of the things I’ve tried to maintain is scrapbooking.

I may only pull the stuff out once or twice a year, but it’s something I’m not willing to give up. For each of my kids I’ve tried to accomplish a scrapbook of their first year of life. I pulled out the box of albums yesterday to look at a picture and realized that I’m behind.

Shocking right? Haha.

I’m about halfway through the first year of my fifth child. Looking at all the finished albums I felt all inspired and ready to pull out all the paper, stickers, etc to get caught up.

Then I remembered why I stopped halfway through an album.

No photos.

It’s not that we haven’t taken any pictures, they are just ALL on the computer.

Digital images.

Nothing I can put my hands on, cut out and make it look all neat. I’m sure it’ll take me awhile but today I’ve started uploading pictures to order prints. Hopefully in a couple of weeks when the pictures finally arrive I’ll still be inspired.

I don't really have any hobbies. Unless you count blogging:p lol It seems all the jobs I have take up all my time. I would however love to scrap book. It looks so nice. I keep saying when the kids are older I will get them out of the rubbermaid container and start sorting.

I love scrapbooking.

For me, as with everything I do, I put all of myself into the things I love, and so scrapbooking is like an expression of me and who I am in my heart.

I'm not willing to give it up, but I don't do it as much as I want.

I love to make cards too.

Pieces of me for others.

I think I need your address again, all I have is the old one.

After you give me your address, your box of love is on it's way!
