My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Monday, monday...........

blogged by me domestic goddess On 4/07/2008 06:11:00 PM
Another week has passed me by, and the Easter holidays are over. The girls head back to school tomorrow, and the normality of a week day returns. Not to sure what that normality is, lol, but there is some routine in our life's, in the week, and I need it back!

I have been catching up as best I can this week, and tieing loose ends to the retreat which is less than 3 weeks away!!!!

Finally finished editing photos I took a few weeks ago of Jen Hall and her fiance for an engagement shoot for them. I thoroughly enjoyed taking their photos and hopefully I captured the love they have for each other. This has to be one of my favourites for the day.

Today is the last day of the holidays, and we spent the day with Izzy's boyfriend and his Mum, Laura. We have had a lovely day, and its has been so nice to sit and chat with another adult, and not be scrapbook related,. tbh!!

I am having one of those periods when I start to question the whole, "why do I scrapbook"? thing.
Yes, I know the "preserving memories and stuff", but i am talking the rest, the DT work, being published and the "smacking". Some days I do question it all, and want to just get back to being me, stay in my little room, playing with paper and photos, no one questioning my abilities, whether I am good enough to be on this DT and in that magazine, and all the rest of the "smacking", that comes with being in the "public" eye. Its all very sad really:(.

And with that I am going to snuggle on my sofa, on my own, as Peter is working tonight, watch some trash on the TV and head to bed early, with a good book!

Hugs and as always thanks for stopping by

Anna xx

    Hi Anna, it is all worth it and you're doing a grand job - there are always those out there that want to knock really just because they may not have acheived quite what they wanted. I'm also looking forward to the routine returning and becoming productive again.
    Hope you enjoy your evening of relaxation - things will look better in the morning

    Anna - sorry to hear that the "smacking" which goes on is making you question what you are doing. Have a good day tomorrow and do whatever you need to just for you.
