This year I have challenged myself to document my self with photos and words. My end goal is to have a solid collection of photos and words to put together into some sort of an album. But for now, here I am just trying to get more comfortable in front of my camera or my camera phone without my children. I spend a lot of time documenting my two C R A Z Y boys. Every now and again I’ve made a layout about myself. I think, the layouts about me total somewhere around 5. Awesome right?
So here it is, I exist. I’m struggling a lot with who I am, who I’m supposed to be, what people want me to be. I’ve been making a lot of changes I hope for the better. Letting go of those people who just burden you with stress. Embracing those who are kindred spirits. Loving myself. Doing for myself. Finding myself. As a scrapbooker we document life, so why not my own? Why not your own? We have a story unique to ourselves.
So here is my challenge: step in front of that camera, any camera and take some photos. Take lots because you know you’ll feel silly just like I did. Get into that frame. Then document it on a layout. Start to share your story with us; I’m sharing the start of mine too. (I’m also kind of excited I scrapped using something pink – see comment about crazy boys)
Here’s a easy journaling prompt for you “I am a…”. Go from there and lets see where it takes all of us. Enjoy celebration your uniqueness!
