So, here's the thing. Over the past year or two, the amount of scrapbooking "work" on my plate has gone down significantly. For a few reasons. I have so much less that I "have" to do these days, compared to what I was doing a few years back.
I know what you might be thinking. If I have less that I "have" to do, doesn't that leave me more time to do what I "want" to do. Not really. It turns out, that after years of doing so much design team work, I have become very assignment-driven. You get used to being told what to scrap about, what sort of techniques to do, and what kind of product to use. You're given deadlines and due dates.
So, without those assignments, it turns out I have a hard time deciding what to do. I'm left with making all of those decisions on my own. What photos and stories do I want to scrap? What products do I want to use? It's all up to me. Which sounds quite freeing, right? It is, and yet it leaves me feeling lost all at the same time. It's weird.
There's also the time factor. I guess that has a little something to do with how much or how little I scrap. Life is busy. Really, really busy. My free time is more limited these days. And most of the time, when I do have some free time, I'm honestly just too tired from work to do much.
But if I don't start scrapping just for the heck of it, I will go weeks at a time with nothing to share and nothing to blog about. And I hate doing that. So I am really going to make an effort to start creating more than I have been, so that there's something to see when you pop in here for a visit :)
