You may recall that one of my Scrapbooking Goals for this year is to re-work or complete the online classes I enrolled in last year and another goal was to complete several mini-albums that I had in progress (one of those being the Permission to Live a Creative Life album!). So, this week I pulled out my Project File and set to work completing the 12-page album.
The course is designed to alleviate the guilt many people feel when they take time away from the "important" things in life to be creative. I have to confess that I don't really feel guilty when I take time to scrapbook or make cards or be creative. I do occassionally remind myself that there are other things that need to be done, like laundry or preparing meals or cleaning house. However, I have a pretty good schedule for keeping up with all those necessary things and typically can find time to be creative several times a week. Thus, my focus in the mini-album journaling is more about affirming the fact that I am creative!
I have always joked (and believed) that I am the least creative person in my family. Seriously, I was always the smart, pretty one in the family (oh, and humble, too! LOL). So, my mini-album is somewhat of a confirmation that I, too, am creative.
