I have spent the past week reorganizing and purging in my scrap area, and while it's not perfectly finished, I am beginning to feel like I can find things again. I was feeling overwhelmed by too much stuff and after a brutal purge, I think I own less patterned paper than I have in 8 or 9 years. And I am finally taking those 8,000 Zig markers to my Sunday School class. It's kind of freeing!
My dearest local friend left today to spend three months in New Zealand with her new granddaughter, and I am going to be so lonely without her to hang out with. I am going to try to use my spare time getting some real, back-to-basics scrapping done. One of the reasons I've been in a scrapping funk recently is that the design team I've been part of for nearly four years has been disbanded. We've seen it coming, and it's really the best thing for the owner, but it makes me very sad and leaves me without a DT gig. I am pretty much OK with that...it's never been about the recognition for me, but it has been so inspiring to work with such a talented group. And I cannot tell a lie: I will miss the discount.
Here's a page I did tonight. It's Ron and Annamarie at her school's family Valentine dance.
