This weekend I took a break and quickly put together a new mini. I was recently asked about my other mini… the daily 2009. I stopped making pages in June. It started to feel like more of an obligation rather than a joy. I was also becoming busier and then when we put our house on the market, I couldn’t keep my crafts out in the open. (I keep them in rubbermaid bins under the bed.) I also started feeling weird about posting things that were so personal. All of that combined… I decided to stop that book where it was. I can’t say that I’ve done much with paper since. My summer was so busy and dragging out the boxes wasn’t too appealing.
But alas, on Sunday, creativity came calling and I thought it would be worth the effort. I think the whole idea of a “mini-book” will work for me if it’s already pre-made, or almost done… just add words, photos and a date stamp. I am also too much of a type A personality to not love having more of a uniform look. I like each page being the same size and a similar color scheme or theme. (I know… all kinds of crazy!)
So I created this one on Sunday as a gift…but it will be hard to part with it. Here are just a few pages:
