Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! This week I began the process of clearing off my desktop and cleaning up my workspace – but not for any of the reasons you might think.
No, my mother isn’t coming to visit!
No, an acquaintance did not mistake my desktop for the scene of a crime!
No, my husband didn’t threaten to show you what my desk really looks like!
Well, actually, he did, but he knows that if he ever carried out that threat he’d be in the dog house – big time!
As much as it pains me to write these words – it appears that a move is in my future! Based on the fact that packing and paring down are about as easy for me as having a tooth extracted – Prince Charming has wisely suggested that I start preparing for the inevitable now!
So, last night, I painstakingly gathered all of my scrapbooks and began to box them up. I felt I needed to do something to internally set the process in motion – to make the intangible real. The process was more emotionally charged than I imagined.
Every completed scrapbook made me want to stop and pour over past memories.
Every new scrapbook made me want to start filling it with new ones.
Right then and there.
It’s going to be a LONG summer!
While I was sorting, I came across a blank book I flipped through and ended up setting aside. Entitled “A Journal Of Sorts”, the book is set up as a combination journal and scrapbook for busy individuals. Inside there is a page-a-month format for you to do whatever you want.
- Create a layout.
- Make a collage.
- Do a bit of journaling.
I thought this book might be the perfect backdrop for capturing a few thoughts and impressions during the midst of a busy season!
Now for a few questions:
- Do you journal? If so, you’ll love Random Journal Day!
- Are you a Tsunami fan? Visit Wordless Wednesday to see what Innocence looks like!
Have a wonderful Independence Day and have fun exploring what’s on everyone’s desk this week!
