Why don't you turn that high-powered perception at yourself and tell us what you see, or, maybe you're afraid to
I received it yesterday, and I started putting it together. It is an amazing kit, full of great products including some Heidi Swapp. It is the best bang for your buck if you ask me.
I scrapbook with the same modus operandi that I knit: I don't ever do it for myself. It is always for someone ... the family or parental units for presents. So when I started looking at this kit and reading the prompts for journaling, I was formulating what I would write in those spaces.
There is journaling for things that make me mad, sad, afraid, and happy. I started to think of things I would put there.
I am dedicating a whole page to knitting, thinking of how I am going to lay it out.
And then the biggie ... I have to actually put PICTURES of myself in there.
Of me. Not of the kids. Not of me and the kids. Not of me and Ace (although that is totally acceptable on a page or two). Just me. And one suggestion that they had was to take a very up close and personal picture of my face.
This I am not too sure about.
But it will certainly make me take a look at myself, which I haven't done in a long time. Time for a personal assessment. And time to see what truly makes me ... well, me.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
My cool find
