My friend Shawnte introduced me to this scrap booking website twopeasinabucket.com and it is a wonderful and friend website that has videos on how to create some really nice cards, and funky ideas for layouts for a scrapbook. So I was teasing Shawnte about being addicted to a segment on the website called "Finally Friday's" where this lady videos herself doing all these cool cards. So one night a few weeks ago I was up late and needed to wind down so I decided to surf the web and began watching the "Finally Friday" videos and became so inspired. I became so intrigued by the videos that I couldn't stop myself. Before you knew it I had been on this sight for a few hours and it was 2:00 a.m. and I have to be up for work at 5:15 a.m. I thought to myself "man now I know why how Shawnte feels because it became so addicting yet intriguing all at the same time. So if you get a chance check it out they have some great products, and tutorials on just about anything. The website truly gets your creative juices flowing. Just beware of the addiction the website will draw you in too.
So in my previous blog I talked about making the decsion to complete projects and how I have been working on my god-daughters scrapbook for two years and I vowed to complete it by May 31, 2009. I am proud to say that I completed my task and will be mailing it to her this week. I am so proud because I set a realistic goal and followed through on it. So stay tuned for the slide show of the wonderful pics of my sweet and loving god-daughter Emiya!

Years ago I was introduced to the wonderful world of scrapbooking and it opened up an amazing new world for me, it seemed to have opened up a window of creative juices I had no idea existed. One of the downsides to this is finding the time to indulge in my passion. I started off saying that I would work at least 1 hour a day working on pending projects and scrapbooks that I have on my to-do list. When my god-daughter was born I decided to create a wonderful scrapbook of her first year and give it to her for her 1st birthday. Unfortunatley she just turned 2 last week and her book is still not completed. Everytime I think I am finished I find another picture that just has to go in the book, or I buy some new paper that deserves to make it's debut in her wonderful book. So I made up in my mind today to get it done before the end of the month. That seemed like a wonderful realistic goal that I have a strong chance of accomplishing. It is important to set realistic goals to allow yourself room for compromise. An important lesson that I have recently been reminded of is to finish the things that I start. I don't want to have dreams deferred I desire to have purpose fulfilled.So stay tuned to view the pages of the cutest little girl and rejoice with me as I reach my goal!
