Apparently, my blog has become my red-headed step-child. Poor thing. I’ve had a lot going on with a project I’m working on, and the blog became the bottom of the list.
So, a quick recap of the past couple of weeks for y’all. Thanks to my POTD, we actually have pictures to go along with things! What is a POTD, you ask? Lemme tell you…
POTD stands for Picture Of The Day. (Crazy, I know.) Somewhere, someone much more thoughtful and creative than I decided to take a picture a day for a whole year. Sometimes it is a picture of themselves every day, so they can see the day to day changes. Sometimes it’s something that catches their eye… whatever the motivation, somewhere along the way it hit the scrapbooking world, and therefore my world. My goal for 2009 is to take a POTD to show all the little things that go on in my life, and the lives of those around me. This leads me to the another big thing that has taken up a chunk of my time: digital scrapbooking.
If you know me (and since you’re reading my blog you probably do) than you know that I love to scrapbook. In theory. The actual process doesn’t happen too often. I start out strong. Dedicated scrap space: check. Lots of photos: double check. Memorabilia: check again. (Of course, I have the “u” book you did in kindergarten.) Plenty of supplies: Well, that’s never been an issue for me.
But when it comes time to actually put a page together, well, it doesn’t happen. (Do you think that my inability to finish anything is… hey, look, a cat!)
Just to give you an idea: the last layout I did was in January of 2006, for pictures of my then-newborn Aidan. It still doesn’t have the photos attached. In January, I completed 28 layouts. THAT’S RIGHT! So, here’s the first 3 weeks of my Project 365:
Liam started walking this past week, so here’s a cute video showing his toddling steps (Sorry about the neck thing… I have no idea how to flip it):
I know, a-dor-able, right? The only thing cuter is him toddling in just his diaper, with his massively chubby legs, but that was a little too white-trash for me.
I hope this catches everyone up just a bit. I know you missed me, and I’m sure your days have been duller, your laughs shorter, and your whites not as bright since I haven’t been updating consistently. Back to your regularly scheduled lives!
