Finally I have been able to do a little bit of scrapping. Haven't scrapped in a long time, mainly because I have had the time or space to do it. I only do it at night after the kids are in bed, and lately I haven't even had time then, too many other things to be done. Also I put off doing it because I have to drag out all my stuff from the various hiding spots I have it (under beds and on top of wardrobes) and then put it away before I go to bed which is pretty impossible because a lot of it is stored under Clarys' bed, and he wakes up at the sound of a pin dropping.
But, the good thing about packing the house up to move is that, because I have stuff everywhere and the house is jusst one huge permanent mess until the day we load the truck, I have been able to pull out all my scrapbooking stuff and LEAVE IT OUT because it just blends right in with the rest of the crap. Don't even know it's there. It's great, I love it.
Anyway I decided to make a little mini album for myself. I have made a few mini albums, but not for myself.
I made the cover for this from some cardboard which came as part of the packaging for something or other I've recieved in the mail in the last few weeks. I have no idea what, can't remember. I slapped some paint of, it's pretty ordinary. Wish I knew how to use paints better. I'm hopeless with them.
I don't have many pictures of me with the kids (most of what I do have, I have taken myself), like a lot of Mums, so I have put a couple in. This is just the start, I plan to keep adding for a while. It's not fabulous. But I really like it, it's just for me.
I haven't really done a lot of journalling with my scrapbooking before now, mainly because I hate my handwriting. Also not very good with words. But I just figured if I don't start now, it's just never going to happen. So I did a little bit in this, and I think I may become addicted to hand written journaling.
Although you can't see much of the journalling because I haven't put all the pages in.
I probably shouldn't be posting now as I am way beyond tired, my memory is completely shot, I can barely string two words together.
I have been madly packing and doing all that other stuff you need to do when you move house.
We will be packing the truck up on the 11th, staying that night in a caravan park in town and driving out of here the next day. Lots to do.
Better go and write another list.
