My January Solution ...
So I came up with a cool idea for scrapbooking ... at least I think so! Yesterday I went through all my scrapbooking stuff and gave all the paper and embellishments that I no longer use to a friend for her birthday (plus a few things I thought she'd like). I was a little nervous recycling like that for a present but she was thrilled! It's good to purge and feels great to give! Today I went through all my stuff again and picked out some of my supplies that I just love (but haven't used) and some that I thought would challenge my creativity and put together my own kit -- for me to use for January. This fits into my words well -- loving myself by allowing me to have scrapbooking time, and wisdom by using stuff I already had instead of just going to the store and buying more more more (thus causing further strain on our budget and not working toward the goal of being debt free.)
My little Joel is so wonderful and precious. Today he was saying "wow wow wow" all day! So cute! That and "brmm brmm". He so loves playing with his trucks and his trains! I'm also loving his sweet kisses and cuddles throughout the day too. This time with him is going so fast. I just want to capture every sweet moment. (I guess that's why scrapbooking is such a passion for me!)
