Not only is it good to have a night away from the worries of motherhood for a few hours, but I find that being creative, is therapeutic. I love cutting, gluing and putting a whole jumble of different textures together and then at the end have a personal masterpiece.
The last few years, I haven't had as much time, but I am trying to get back into it at home as well as club. After I moved a few years ago, I got behind on my kiddos albums. With the new year, I am determined to stay on top of things a little better. Instead of stressing out and going way back when, I am working on the last two years, randomly.
At "Club" our hostess comes up with a cute layout for us to do each month. Even though we are learning new techniques and skills together and have the same supplies, the pages all turn out slightly different, with our own creative stamp on them. It is a lot of fun. Even more relaxing is I don't have to be super creative, I can just follow her layout.
Tonight, the theme at scrapbook club, was "Love." I chose a picture from last year's Valentine's day, to go in Jordan's album. As I was scrapbooking around the pictures, I realized how much my little man has changed in the last year. WOW! Time really does fly by...
Here is the finished project of the night.
Isn't it cute?
I had a good time making it. I love taking pictures and I love to scrapbook, both go together nicely.
Do you have a hobby?
