At Scrappy Boutique, we are all just digging this journey of One Little Word. We all have reflected on what we want for ourselves in 2011 and what word can guide us and keep us on track. So I asked Julie to tell us about her word... TIME!
Ok - so what's your scrapbook goal for 2011? I know it's a boring question you all know the answer to - "I just want to scrapbook". Well, me too!!! I am about to embark on Ali Edwards class - One Little Word - and my word it TIME.
I find I am always blown away by time. How quickly it goes, how there's never enough, and how we are governed by time in everything we do. One of the things I am always completely blown away over is how quickly my boys have grown up. I mean, didn't I just have three cute little boys (although I have to say they are still cute!!) who liked to build legos and play with cars. Wasn't there a time when I could have them all in bed by 7:30 at night and now I go to bed before them!! Did I miss all their ages and stages? No I didn't and it's still going on and as I try to keep up with my scrapbooks and everything else I do in my day to day life, I am constantly reminded of the time passing and how I can't stop it.
I tell my friends sometimes how I want to stop the clock for a while and catch up. So when you think of your scrapbooking goals for this year, do what I intend to do and make time for your self, remember the moments, and who knows?? Maybe we will take TIME to scrapbook!
And what is the coolest thing about this class? It is not all about doing step by step what Ali is telling you to do - but more about taking in all that she has to say... and making the journey your own. No matter where it takes you. Mari, Julie and Amy all did 12x12 layouts to display and to remind them of their word... for those days when we really need to be reminded!!
Be happy. Have balance.
