Signs of Life

I'm actually scrapping again, can you believe it? I took December off, first time off in 5 years of working in the scrapbooking industry. Then I got really sick at the beginning of Jan. and it took forever to shake it. But for the past week, I've been scrapping. I'm using up some kits I have! (Can I get an amen, hallelujah?!) I have a goal, I really want to buy some new CHA stuff, but I have to make a dent in those kits first. Here are some pages I made back when I was with Cocoa Daisy:

I resigned after the December kit. I was feeling like I needed to go in a different direction, needed some space and time to feel inspired again. I've been wanting to fall in love with the hobby again, like I did when J was first born. And sometimes it takes giving up the familiar, walking away from the safe thing, and going your own way. So I intend to fully enjoy the process of rediscovering the joy that I have when scrapbooking. Will be sharing new layouts soon, after celebrating my birthday 2/1. Happy Day to you! Until tomorrow.

I totally get the falling out of love. I've been lost for the past 2 years and I made some huge changes over the last month and I'm slowly rediscovering the hobby and my love for it.

Those are really adorable layouts. Maybe we had the sane bug. My creating has been on the back burner too with the yuks.
