I got an email to attend a Scrapbooking Weekend, and even though I’m a novice scrapbooker, I didn’t want to pass up an opportunity to spend a full day with a friend, so I was so happy when I was able to arrange it so that I could attend one of the sessions.
I started thinking about what I would do during my scrapbooking time. I had an idea to set up a scrapbook entitled: My Fiftieth Year. Kick it off with birthday month and then make a 2 page spread for each month (if there are that many in the book?) and record how I spend the year (so I start off ahead instead of behind!).
I was inspired by two things:
- My local library’s recent workshop that I attended to create a vision board.
- Meg’s scrapbook pages she calls Project Life on her “Our Misadventures” blog. Hmmm…maybe I should call mine Project MidLife? 🙂
I’m on the fence now about whether I should do “2012” and have it span January through December, or start in in May and have it span May 2012 to April 2013. I am also wondering about whether I should have themes that correspond with the month (for example, Christmas for December) or themes corresponding to my interests (food! writing! books!)…maybe, somehow, both?
What do you think?
