It’s all a juggling act! Life that is… Now that school is back in session, I find it hard to balance the fun with the work. My fun is crafting and it is therapeutic as well. When time does not allow for the fun, life can seem pretty strained and exhausting. Even just a visit to my craft room can ease the pains of the day. This week’s pain, my dad has been admitted into the hospital for a virus. He has acute myeloid leukemia (diagnosed in February).
Life cannot be taken advantage of… Are you living each day to its fullest? Are your eyes set on the things above and are you actively working towards the legacy you will be leaving behind? What will people know about you and your life? Have you sat down and shared who you are? Have you consistently taken time out of your busy schedule and worked on your memory album? Your memories are what will be left behind for generations to come and if you do not write them down, they will be forgotten over time.
This past week I have shared from our family vacation to Florida/Georgia and this week I will be sharing from our family album. Do not be intimidated by the fancy layouts you come across in your crafting research, just focus on the end result… Getting to those memories and putting them into a book for the future generations to enjoy.
Next month Close To My Heart will be featuring Studio J in their newsletter. Studio J is our online digital scrapbooking program (currently available, see blog sidebar badge). If you feel that you are overwhelmed when it comes to which embellishments to place here or there on a scrapbook page, try digital scrapbooking. No mess, no supply storage necessary… Only you, your digital photos and your computer with Studio J membership accessibility are required. Check it out on my website www.kimferguson.ctmh.com.
