It was a lot of fun putting together the book for my friends (and my little muffins). Show me your choppers (first teeth), Gotcha Day!, birthdays, Christmas, first food, ya-ya, Grandma & poppa, summer fun, cousins… lots of pages, lots of fun! I laid out all the pages and glued them down, got out the stickers, this week I will pull out my Cricut to do all the page titles. I need to go to JoAnn’s this week, get a book, extra plastic covers, more stickers, and a frame made for a new canvas I bought.
I think I will start scrapbooking again, it was fun and creative. I forgot how much I loved doing it. Also kept me occupied and away from the fridge. Earlier in the day I almost posted “there is a battle for my joy, and I don’t think I’m winning”. I turned that over to God. I told Him “I can’t fight this one, Lord”. He did. He helped me by giving me the time to do the scrapbooking, a peaceful house (that was clean), and the love of my friends as I designed each page and thought about how much joy they fill my heart with. As I finished scrapbooking for the day, my joy was restored!
I’m one blessed woman!
