As a mom, I don't allow myself to indulge in creative free time. I'm not sure why and it's definitely something I need to work on because I know that when I allow myself the freedom to do something for me that I feel refreshed. On Mother's Day (yes, I'm just now posting, don't judge!) I got up early and spent the morning in my Studio watching my favorite movie, StepMom, and making some layouts using the Studio Calico Camelot Project Life Kit.
I had a stack of photos (that were similar in content) and the Camelot kit that I had opened but not done anything with. I subscribe to the Studio Calico monthly Project Life Kits because I love them but lately have realized that another one comes before I use the prior months. The other issue I have is a need to buy stamps and then NEVER use them but I love them and ALWAYS have good intensions. I decided to see if I could put the content to use on these scrapbook pages and thought limiting myself to certain supplies would move things along. Keep it simple.
1. Camelot Project Life Kit
2. Acrylic Stamps (Ali Edwards & Studio Calico)
I'm not going to go into detail about each layout but after I was done I noticed that even though I used white cardstock for all of them and that they had similar content they were all unique. I love that.
I also love that I have captured my children in their world with their things right now. I wonder if my mom has photos of my world at their ages. Hmmmm............
What do you buy and never use? Do you belong to a monthly kit club and the kits pile up with good intentions? How do you carve out time for yourself. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for stopping by.
