The other day I was looking through one of my scrapbooks and realized that a particular layout was one of my favorites. This was surprising because it is so simple and I usually prefer busier layouts for a creative release from the stress of daily life. But what set this one apart was the story behind the picture - which I had actually journaled. Everytime I look at this page, I read the journaling and it takes me back to that time.
Isn't that really the point of these scrapbooks we create, to preserve that moment in time. Obviously I can't journal about every page any more than I can scrapbook every picture I take. But, I can start carrying a small journal with me to capture the thoughts when they come to mind. So I will be more prepared (and more practiced) when I am putting a layout together.
So, whether it is the cute things that my niece just said, or thoughts on life in general - I am recommitting to journaling more.

Getting ready for the Vincennes Pumpkin Hunt. Different stores down Main street participate in SAFE Trick-or Teating for kids. We joined in the fun last year and can't wait to see all the costumes this year. We donated 3 small prizes for the costume contest. Here is a peek at them.

We had a very busy day here at the store. Today was our first ever tag sale where customers brought in items from home that they were done using and were ready to let others enjoy.
All they had to do was call ahead for a number (which they used instead of initials), price their items, and drop them off the Thursday before our sale. We kept 10% of the total sold and they received the rest in a store credit.
Thank you to everyone who brought in items and to those who stopped in to shop the bargains.

They each picked the paper they wanted to work with and made these beautiful albums.
The back of this one is so cute I had to take a picture.

I am a few days behind on this, but last week we had a good day to work on projects. Gina and Lori joined me for part of the day. And let me take pictures of the projects they were working on.
Lori created this adorable train mini-album from KaiserCraft.
While Gina was assembling her Boo mini-album, one of the Shabby Pink Designs kits.

I had such a fun day today. Janet P. came over and helped me create several different Christmas cards for the Christmas card workshop. On Saturday, Nov. 8th and Tues. Nov. 11, The Scrapbook Tree is offering this workshop where we make 4 of each of these cards. A total of 20 cards for just $15. I think this may be the last year we'll do that many for just $15, but we'll see. Each one has a different saying on the inside.
