Hidey-ho neighbor! I just got back from Walmart for the grocery run. I was surprised when I went around the corner and saw a huge aisle of school supplies freshly shelved.
So I'm standing there and I get a whif of this aroma. The aroma of new school supplies. I sucked in a big breath and smiled. The people in the aisle next to me gave me a strange look. What is this lady smiling about, they must have thought. I thought, boy I wish I had my camera, I'd love to take a picture of all these crayons, markers, ruler, glues, protractors and packages of paper.
The cool thing is, scrapbooking made me think that way. If I didn't scrapbook, I'd probably just walk by and go.....oh. school supplies. But now, I really see life. In small details. I constantly think -- oh that would make a cool page! It just causes me to think differently about practically everything. My life. My child's life. My memories. The future. What I want to do with my life. I know that sounds a bit incredible but it's really all because of scrapbooking. It makes me think things through on a regular basis and appreciate the small joys of life.
Also...I just love school supplies. Always have. Always will. Love the smell too. :)
This picture is one I wanted to share yesterday but Blogger wouldn't cooperate. It's of my Mom and Caroline. I have very few pics of them together and I love how this turned out. I see a MiMaw page in the near future.
