This picture may seem familiar to many of my fellow scrappy friends! If you don’t scrap-book you can relate this varied array of stuff to some other area of your life I’m sure. This mess makes me happy to a degree. It means I’m engaging in one of my most favorite activities!! On the other hand it means I need to clean it up too! My time has felt like this mess lately too.
My time is so scattered in different areas of my life. I happen to love being busy because it means I get to do so many different things. One responsibility I share with my husband is to organize and distribute the flags in our area thru the Boy Scouts. This is truly a double-edged sword. It can be a lot of work, it requires a fair amount of planning and coordination, and I have to get up early to do this. The benefits far out weigh any of the above dislikes I have for this task! One of my favorite parts is that my hubby and I get to work together and we make a great team. He organizes all the boys and parents while I drive and help gather flags. I also get to spend time with some of the most amazing young men I have met. These boys are great. They don’t want to be up early but they get up and help with positive attitudes. I have to admit I’m most proud of my own son who also participates in the scouts! Plus I get to feel all patriotic with 50 plus flags riding around in my car! I do however miss my cup holder which is buried somewhere under all these flags! As an added bonus we have established the best tradition of going to get donuts after!! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!
Speaking of holidays, messes and time I’m so excited I had to post this picture of my new Cricut Expression! I purchased it second-hand and love that it is pink! I have been using this awesome gadget to finish up a project I’ve been working on for some time.
Here is a peek at one of the elements I created. Can you guess what it’s for? Do you remember this post? Yep. It’s for my new niece who will be here before I know it. It’s a book similar to a smash book. This is one I made from a notebook I picked up on the clearance aisle and altered. It is full of pockets and places to put all the stuff you accumulate during a pregnancy like ultrasound pictures or cards. I promise to post more pictures that show all the fun details when I get a few minutes. In the mean time stay cool and have a great day!
Today I’m grateful that I’ve had the time to rest this weekend and do some of the things I really love. I also appreciate the time spent with friends and family I love! I am looking to see where my time is scattered this coming week.
