This week I began work on organizing my craft desk. First up was scrapbooking, moving supplies, organizing, and figuring out where I left off and what needed to be tackled first. Moving and organizing was fairly simple. I figured out I need new glue but otherwise I’m good to start scrapping whenever I’m in the mood.
I pulled our scrapbooks and went through them to see where I left off and what still needs to be memorialized. Turns out I lost my scrapbooking motivation before I finished a single scrapbook. Several of them our close, our wedding scrapbooks to be precise, but many others have barely had their respective surfaces scratched. Time to get cracking on scrapping!
I did run across what is most likely the last page I scrapped. It made me immensely sad and I admit I had myself a good, silent cry when I found it. At the same time, I’m very happy I had the will to scrap the page before I stopped scrapping.
We have been unlucky and haven’t lived up to our hopes on this page but I’m sure our two angels understand and accept that. Truth is, I don’t think I would be able to do this scrapbook page today. It would lack the hope the page has and would contain far too much sorrow for dreams unrealized.
I am immensely thankful that this scrapbook page exists. It isn’t an award winning page but it does represent what scrapbooking means to me, heartfelt pages designed to capture the emotion and memory of the subject matter.
