09 Feb 2007 scrappy….
 |  Category: Paper and Glue

A monthly scrapbook club I belong to is doing a special album project for 2007. The premise is to keep a weekly diary and then scrap a page to accompany it. I love the premise, with some revisions, and this is my first offering.

I have done a week by week album in the past and it was stressful, to say the least, trying to find things to say on those weeks when you really didn’t do anything that felt…I don’t know..preservation worthy. I do believe, quite strongly, in preserving the “mundane”, for various reason but most of them related to my love for history, but we might have done something “scrapworthy” about 1/3 of the year, leaving 2/3 of the year in which to celebrate the “mundane”. It was hard. Add to that the times a year where we did a LOT in a week (and attempting to pin it down into one, one page layout for size and volume’s sake) and it was just a difficult undertaking.

So, I’m going to try this. I’m journaling six days a week with one day reserved for a quote I find meaningful or interesting and only scrapping an accompanying layout of the weeks where I feel like I have something to scrap about.
