Once upon a time, I loved to scrapbook. Somehow over the past 6 months or so, I just stopped doing it. My stuff was disorganized, it needed a good purging, I wasn’t feeling creative, etc. Then I got knocked up. Hello morning sickness (or all day sickness as it turned out…), hello exhaustion, good-bye desire to do anything other than lay on the couch like a lump of flesh.
Then, after Christmas, I got my shelf. And I got the gift of the second trimester (which, thankfully, came a little early…I’m wasn’t technically in the second trimester until this week, but I started feeling like it 2 weeks ago.) So with my extra energy and my wonderful shelf, I organized my scrap stuff. I purged like crazy. Everything has a spot, everything looks all neat and tidy. I could see my table again. And I started to get that creative itch again.
So I scrapped. And I scrapped some more. It was fun again. And I was happy. (And amazingly, so was Derek. He won’t admit it, but I think he likes my hobby. Plus, he hates to see my stash of stuff sit unused.)
Then, I got some really great news from Carrie. She asked me to be a part of the design team for her company, Paper Trunk! Of course I said yes! I am so thrilled to be on this team…the whole team is top notch, and not only that, but I love Carrie, and I can’t wait to see where God leads her and her company!
So that’s that. Scrappy Meg is back!
