The past few weeks have been full of organizing, packing, and working on little projects here and there. I'm still keeping to my "Friday Dejunk Day". That's the day of the week I designate as donate day. I bring everything from our donate pile to our local thrift store. I've been giving the kids a challenge in their room each week and they've really been making their way through all their toys, only keeping their absolute favorites. I can't believe how much we've accumulated over the years. It feels so good to let go of stuff and focus on the future.
I've also been really trucking along with my scrapbook project. Before I became a digital scrapbooker, I did the old school paper and glue version. My sisinlaw and I loved having scrapbook nights. It was always so much fun. I now have all my paper 12x12 albums organized. I grabbed extra albums off Amazon to accommodate my pile of pages.
As I've looked back at my past pages, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Gratitude that I took the time to capture these memories. I've saved past birthday and holiday cards, I have the kids Christmas wish lists from 2009. Oh those red heads melt my heart. I have a note from my brother. Oh man I am sure glad I saved that now. I also captured things I had forgotten all about. That's what I love about scrapbooking. It's creating a picture journal to enjoy for years to come.
I've also been continuing to add to my digital scrapbook albums. I'm still ordering my 8x10 prints from Costco. I'm up to 2006. Only 10 years to go till I'm current. Ha-ha! That's a lot of pages, but also a lot of fun memories.
How have you guys been doing?
