This is the last of my 100 + scrapbook pages that I have been working on for the past couple of months. Now I am officially a digital scrapbooker! (I'll still be making cards.) For me, getting all of these pages done, wasn't about being "caught up" because I am definately not caught up! I still have a ton to scrapbook from 2007 and I haven't done any from 2008. But that doesn't bother me. All of that will be digital. My idea and expectations for myself as far as scrapbooking goes have changed a little. Since I've started blogging and basically creating a family journal with pictures that I plan to have printed into a book once a year, I don't really feel the need to scrapbook every picture and every little thing that happens anymore. That alone has relieved a lot of pressure (all self induced by me). I used to scrapbook everything because it was our family journal. I'm so glad that I have those books to look back on and to see how much my family has grown. Anything picture related is a treasure! Scrapbooking to me now is all about FUN! It was about fun before, like getting together with friends, going to retreats and laughing like crazy! I do miss that part about scrapbooking, but now I'm focusing on a different side of fun...I can go in whatever order I want to. I can do a one picture page if I want and not feel guilty about spending all this money on just one picture and if I don't want to scrapbook the pictures that I have posted on my blog, then I don't have to because it's already recorded. The most important reason I kept pushing myself to get this done is so I can start my new way of doing things on a fresh note. Now I can COMPLETELY ENJOY everything about it because I don't have over 100 paper scrapping pages taking half of my brain cells in the opposite direction. YEAH for me!! You know how much I LOVE to finish a project. That feeling of accomplishment makes me want to keep moving forward and tackle something else, but for now I just want to relax. Now my family can have homecooked meals again and a mom who goes to bed on time (that's my new goal...we'll see how I do!)
