Beach Layouts . . . How Unfitting
As 2008 nears its end, I'm realizing how much of my pictures I have yet to deal with. They are a jumbled mess on my hard drive, and my goal for '08 was to stay on top of them and scrapbook our memories as they happened.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. That was relatively easy to say anyway. I'm not going to beat myself up too much though, because I just counted and I have 48 12x12 layouts completed.
I just have too many pictures.
This particular batch of pictures is from our trip to California last summer, and our visits to Oceanside Beach.
These pictures are a complete 180 degrees from the kind of weather we are experiencing right now in Idaho. We are getting slammed with snow and wind, and it looks quite wintry outside.
I'm certainly not complaining about the weather, just making note of the contrast. I love having a white Christmas, even if it does mean shoveling twice a day and maybe being housebound.
I love that word, housebound. It's so cozy and sedentary. It means I can scrapbook, read, watch movies, cross stitch, blog, whatever, and not feel guilty about it. That's the best part. The guilt-free aspect.
Today I indulged myself and did a little digi scrapping, but not until I got my Christmas cards all ready to send out.
I may have to snow shoe my way to the mailbox tomorrow, but by dang-it, they're goin' out.
Bring on the snow, I'm ready for it.
