My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Back In The Saddle


Back In The Saddle

for like the 5th time. I have officially eaten my words when it comes to being a scrapbooking mom. Before I had Liam, I just could not comprehend my mommy friends when they said they had no time to scrapbook since they had kids. I mean, how much time does such a little person need? To all of those friends who I gave a quizzical look to (and secretly rolled my eyes at) my deepest apologies go out to you. Liam takes up a lot of my time and I let the computer take up the rest of my time. Currently trying to go through a self inflicted internet reader is fantastic, but I think has enabled me. Just a bit.

Back on track...I have been trying to get myself in gear lately and do the things that I used to love...obviously scrapbooking. One night laying in bed, a sketch for a layout popped into my head. I hadn't even been thinking about creating anything so it surprised me. The next day I started just pulling out some of my current favorite papers and went to work. That sketch totally morphed into something completely different, but I love it even more. I created something and let's just say, it really inspired my new blog look. I can't post the layout because I even went as far as submitting it to a couple of magazines like I used to. So therapeutic for me!

So for those of you who are feeling the spring itch go and do something that you love. Even if it's for 5's totally worth it!

And for a completely random...randomness...{because that is what I do best} {and use the dot dot dot way too much on this blog}... If you are feeling a little couped up, stir crazy, anxiety, bad weather blues, click here. Turn up the volume, close your eyes and just breath. I know it's for orange juice, but I found the sound cathartic. Really.

    And I plan on kicking my feet up for spring break by reading and scrapbooking ALL WEEK! I even have my days planned up until then so that the house will be clean and meals will be pre-prepared! My name is Deneigh, and I'm an overachieving organizer!

    Love that you got to be creative!

  4. You are amazing. Can I rent you - or just your creativity - or your energy?
