happy friday!

i hope all is well in your world. if you have an internet connection then i daresay all is ok. with all that’s going on, it doesn’t take much to feel really lucky for what we have.

i’ve been reassessing  the future and indulging in enjoying a new perspective of not taking it all so hard.  i came across a sketchbook challenge tonight (don’t worry, I’m not attempting it)! and it got me thinking about organizing my millions of cards and what-nots into some kind of cohesive scrapbook.

my parents still have my scrapbooks from childhood. it was an obsession at the time that i loved doing with my neighborhood friends.

these pages are so full of life and information. i want to be this creative, it’s fun!

do you have unused scrapbooks? i must have 20.

maybe carrying it at all times would be helpful so you can create at will

or is it better to have a desk where creating a page is special and precise

looks like jolly good fun and lord knows i have stuff. i’m sure you do too. should we have our own little challenge? i bet your pages would be pretty!

    I can totally relate to a notebook and journal obsession. I have kept journals since I was 10 years old. I have a whole box of them. I still hoard notebooks, pictures and treasure. It’s an inexplicable quirk :)

    If not, why not? It’s the small thing in life that bring us joy!

    Oh, do make us a challenge! I could use the impetus! Not now. Later! After you recover! Gorgeous display by the way. I loved it!

    I have fashion scrapbook I made when I was a teenager. It’s starting to “yellow” so I really need to re-do it before it’s too late. It’s so wonderful that you still have your old scrapbooks, what a source of inspiration they must be.
    Have a fabulous day!
