Well, hello, crop much?

I am out of my skin...I am going to my first cropping session with people I have never met on Friday the 12th from 6 pm to 12am.  I can't believe I get 6 hours to myself!  Well, for myself anyway!  I am so excited.  That's right, I have never been to a crop!  Only online ones and with people I feel like I know!  Weird!  So I have very few ideas of what to take to a crop.  I am using sketches, I have cropped my photos.  I have cut out things with my Cricut and kind of picked out paper accents, embellishments, and such. 

I plan on bringing my SU! stamping spots and pens, as well as distress ink, chalk, sand paper, glue, scissors, paper trimmer, glue dots/adhesives, shape scissors, punches, foam wedges, and some other stuff. 

I can't wait and I'll let you know how it goes and upload the LOs!!!

Wonderful Creativity Prompts

I have times where I just stare at the wall of scrapbooking supplies in front of me and my eyes just gloss over.  Sometimes I need some inspiration.  One of the sites that I go to A Matter of Memores, supplies inspiration from all kinds of places.  I suggest you pop over there and look around!  You never know what will catch your eye.

I do feel a little bit like I am recovering from Cropping Mania.  Do you ever experience a little bit of depression after going on vacation or after a huge event? That's how I feel right now.  I feel like all the expectation and the feelings that go with it have crashed.  I just need a little time to recover.  I have never been a part of such a large online crop, nor hosted my own.  I do look forward to doing another one and now I'll be much more prepared for the emotions.

I have shared in jest with friends, that I am a mood scrapper, that's my style!  So I suspect that my next LO will rightfully so, find joy in my source, from the One who sustains me!  I am at a crossroads and I want God to speak from my LOs.  In not only journaling, but also in the pictures and embellishments.  I want my scrapbooking principals to reflect that God comes first.  That also goes for wanting every single new product or only saving money to buy new stuff.  I have been very blessed and it is time to give my time back to God and not spend it on my computer and concentrating  so much on scrapbooking.  I am going to go for quality and not quantity!  I am going to try to go to my local church and find some faithbookers.  I am turning into a recluse and everyone is suffering.

I feel renewed.  I pray that I have the courage to step out of my old ways.  I am so grateful for the talent my God has given me and how I could fellowship with others through my talents!!
