Yeah. I did it. I caved. I bought an actual Project Life kit. For a while I've been going back and fourth about project life. Some days I'd see so much inspiration and feel inspired. Then some days I'd think my life is too uninteresting and boring to be able to fill a page, much less an album. Then I thought I wanted to do it digitally. Then I thought I'd just do my own version. Well…
Clearly I think way too stinking much. But you guys already knew that. ;). Scrapbooking is supposed to be fun. So I thought some more. I have a corner of my bedroom chock full of supplies, unused, collecting dust. Why were they not being used? Can you guess? I think too much. I love scrapbooking. I truly do. But I focus too much on finding the perfect way of scrapbooking that I end up not scrapbooking at all.
Since I've been wanting to do some version of Project life for some time, I decided to just cave and buy a kit. There is no need to reinvent the wheel or trying to find the prefect way. What I really want is to document my memories which wasn't happening because I was focusing on the wrong thing.
Don't laugh, but it was torture standing there in Michaels trying to pick which kit I wanted to start with…I chose one. Then looked at another one. And another. I listened to my gut and picked one. I walked around the store to pick up a few more things then circled my way back to look at the kits again.
I think I spent another 15 minutes cursing silently wishing I had the income to buy all of them so I didn't have to choose. Eventually I ended up choosing the 5th and Frolic core kit because the color scheme matched my style - the color scheme that I actually like, not the one I try to convince myself I like to try to be trendy and match everyone else's style.
I need to stop thinking so much...but that's a story for another post!
