Right Now

i saw a layout on Keshet's blog last week titled 'Me:Today' and realised i hadn't done a page like it in a while. i like to do them from time to time to document where i'm at, as things change so much from year to year. Or in my case month to month because i'm such a free spirit and i get bored rather easily. 

Right now i'm feeling overwhelmed. i feel like i don't have enough time. Enough time to see my friends, family and  find room to make time for the things i love too. Enough time to have fun and also time to rest. i am constantly exhausted and i am SO fed up of it. i also feel guilty for neglecting my blog and the blogging community, i am almost always a week behind on my google reader! Eeek!

i found time to do a bit of scrapping 2 weeks ago and that made me feel overwhelmed too. Sometimes i just sit and stare at all the stuff i have and don't know where to start so i've decided to try and simplify things a bit, just pick a few items and try and work with them. i tend to take pictures on a no flash setting so they often come out yellowish anyway but the pogo printer makes photos so look so much more yellow/vintage then they actually are. So it suited the Mix and Mend line from Sassafrass and the Free Composition paper meant i had all the layering with none of the work involved. love. Journalling is hidden in the Maya Road envelope. And i'm still addicted to the Dear Lizzy tape.

hello! don't stress - the more you think you have no time, the less time you'll seem to have. i know this feeling well. little steps, micro-planning, and herbal tea are good :-)
ps. your page is lovely. is there journalling in the envelope? x

I'm honored I inspired you! Love the layout! And I also get stressed about being behind in my blog reading, which is nutty, but what can I do?
