It's Marivic here..Sorry I haven't been around.
But I am here to announce our new addition to our Zeus and Zoe family.
Mitra....our DT Coordinator
One afternoon when I was little, I was sitting on our back steps in the hot sun, basking. The whole summer stretched in front of me and I was enjoying the warmth of the sun and the lack of school. I remember idly trying to remember what I had done the morning before. My brain was blank. I tried to recall earlier that day and again, it was blank. Panic struck at how easily memories could slip from my brain and be gone forever.
I promised myself that I would try to remember each and every moment of every day not realizing that it was an impossible task. I did achieve remembering that one moment of panic however when the concept of time and its passage struck home.
Scrapbooking for me is like a book mark in my brain and soothes that panic. One glance at some journaling or a few photos and I’ve slipped back to that time and can enjoy the essence of the day. You can’t recall every moment of course, that is impossible and also tedious.
I tend to scrapbook photos from recent activities so my journaling is fresh but I am also enjoying jumping back in time and making pages from when I was younger. One hopes they make their pages for the next generation, but really I have no way of knowing who will be looking at them. Certainly the photos and the journaling are for my two kids, Lexi (age 11) and Luke (age 9) to enjoy if they wish, but the journey to making the page is all for me.
OTP projects are very dear to my heart as well. Changing up something dreary and giving it a new face and voice are such a thrill! Even better if you can reuse something that normally would end up in the trash!
It’s the art of it all.
Blogging it takes it one step further and allows me to connect my art with the rest of the planet. Making pages and sharing them fulfills me in ways I never thought possible. I am overjoyed to start a new challenge by working with the DT Team at Berry71Bleu and Zeus & Zoe.
