Not too much to tell, and even worse.....nothing to show. You all know I started in my new job last Monday, and I have to get used to the fact that I have less time to scrap and do other things. The first days in a new job are always exhausting, so I mostly spend my evenings on the couch or surfing the internet. I really like my new job! They are very glad that I joined them, and I feel so welcome. I know for sure that I made the right choice.
Right now I am surrounded by cardstock, papers, stamps, doodle templates, Prisma pencils and flowers. I have to prepare a few make & takes for this weekend. It is the grand opening at Dolls & Decorations this weekend. The store will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 10am till 4pm. I will be there on Saturday and give some make & takes. The new store is awesome with LOTS of yummy goodies.
Last evening we had a meeting in Almere to talk about this weekend's make & take program. Bonnette would go as well and since we live pretty close to each other she suggested to travel together. I really enjoyed our drive to Almere....and back. Needless to say, we didn't talk about anything else other than scrapbooking. Bonnette loves talking about scrapbooking. She had some great and inspirational ideas, and while talking to her I realized I have to scrap more about our every day life, and add more journaling to my pages. I usually scrap a layout that includes one picture and a title, and I often wonder if I will ever do that layout in an album. So from now on I will try to really tell a story, and put more effort into my journaling. A great example of scrapping the every day life is Revlie. Her scrap style is different than mine, but I love her designs and so enjoy reading her funny stories. Last week I had a similar conversation with my scrap friend Mandy. She told a funny story about her 18-month old boy. We both agreed that we should scrap such stories more often and guess what she did......She made a great page about the story she told me. Go and check the story on her blog.
I also started on reorganizing my scraproom. Like all scrappers I have way too much stuff, and I am not really happy with the way I stored my goodies. I now have to find a way that works better for me. I will also be reorganizing my blog. I won't change the look of it, because I am happy with it, but I will be labeling my posts in a different way. Well, lots of things to do. So.....if you miss me, you know what I am doing. :-)
