The past few weeks, I've been critiquing my layouts. You are your best critic, right? (Hehehe) I noticed that I don't journal. So, now, if I say that I scrapbook to preserve memories. I am mistaken. I scrapbook to design. And, I want to change that.
I started scrapbooking because I like to write. I write short stories, poems when I was in grade school and high school. I was part of the school paper. Yet now that I have a chance to tell stories about my daughters' childhood, I just cut and paste papers. I don't journal in my scrap layouts.
I am going to change. This is my mid year resolution. To journal.
Even if all my layouts have all those strips of paper that I usually use to journal, I'd do it. But, I am embarking on a new journey. I am going to find ways to journal. May it be hidden, through stamping, etc. From now on, there will be a journal. There will be a story.
Even if it's just place, date and time.
