It’s All About ME!

I have been scrapbooking for 10 years and for 10 years I’ve said, “This is the year I’m going to do a Book of Me.”  Never happened.  Well, I think this might really be the year thanks to a great scrapbook site that has invited me to be part of their design team….exciting huh?

Check out our first challenge at Scapperie and you can see what I’m talking about.  If you’ve ever read Ali’s blog you know about the word of the year, if you haven’t you can see all about it right here.  This is the third year I have participated in the word of the year…the first year I did grace, the second year I did organization and this year’s word is endurance. 

For me choosing a word of the year keeps me focused. 

I want to do a Book of Me to tell MY story, I’ve done a pretty good job of telling the kid’s stories and I know when they are grown they’ll enjoy those books….my story is still left untold.  I figure if I do 52 pages this year, I’ll divide those among the three kids and then I’ll continue to add to the books over the years.

Part of my endurance for what seems to be a tough year is going to be throwing myself back into creating.  I need to play with paper, wood, paint and create to fight the depression that is just lurking around the corner.  I hope I’ve encouraged someone else to get busy on a Book of Me.

The challenge for this year is to journal about goals/resolutions….I’m already working on it.

I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
