In scrappy news, I can sum up what i've been up to very easily - nothing lol. I have taken a break this past month as I hadn't been feeling very creative and needed to refocus. Well, i'm happy to report that the break helped - I actually felt motivated to scrap two nights ago, and it felt GOOD! Actually, it felt great :-) It just reinforced for me how much I love (and need!) having a creative outlet, but sometimes taking a break is definitely needed to get the mojo flowing again. I made this layout just for fun (something I also don't do nearly enough!).
Here is the journaling:
You have always been SO tall for your age and have often acted more mature and wiser than one would expect. Because of this, I sometimes forget that you are ONLY six. I forget that when it’s pajama day in Kindergarten, you will want to wear your superman pajamas with a cape. I forget that when it’s show and tell, you’ll want to bring in a stuffed animal. I forget that when I volunteer in your classroom, you’ll want to run over to me, give me a big hug, and sit on my lap (which I love!!). I forget that sometimes when things aren’t going your way and you’re frustrated, you’ll break down in tears. Time goes way too quickly as is, so I am so thankful for all of these little reminders that inside that mature, wise exterior, there is a little boy who is ONLY six.
So, speaking of scrappy breaks, my term is up at AMM and, after two years designing for Michelle, I have decided not to renew my term. It was a tough decision because I love AMM and I really love Michelle, but it seemed like the right time for me to move on. Life is definitely crazier now, and I think it's good to do something different after awhile to bring out the best of my creative side :-) This is the first time in three years that I have not been on a design team, so it will definitely take some getting used to, i'm sure. And, although I don't have the time in my life to be on multiple teams like I used to, I would certainly still love to be on a team in the near future if it's a good fit. So, my plan is to just keep creating and see what the future holds!
And, of course, I just had to post some recent pics of what we've been up to...
Chloe and Lucas loving each other up on Memorial day: The boys swimming at our good friends' house:
Hanging out with my new friend, the goat, at my nephew's b-day party (at a farm ;-)
I just loved this bench, and Lucas seemed to, as well!
Love this little guy!!
Happy hump day, my friends!
