There is a challenge to all the members of a critique group to which I belong to scrapbook a day in your life. I was waiting for a really juicy day to scrap about.
I think today is the day I will scrap about. I think it really defines "me". There is alot that happened today but one thing that I wanna share here is something "good" I did and something "good" I realized today.
I went to Scrapbook Royalty's An Angel's Legacy Crop. I got to crop! Not alot but I got some cards done! Woohoo! So that was good...but I was just thinking that I could have been anywhere on a Saturday. But I was there, donating my time, spending my *husband's* hard-earned cash on raffles, gas to get there, and more all to be donated to charity. I could have been buying designer handbags or vegging in front of the TV but instead I was using the talents God gave me to do something to benefit someone else. Yes, I had a ton of fun--I got the best reaction from my class and I also got to share my Silhouette with some awesome croppers! It was really fun. Anyways, it felt really good to be giving a part of me.
A few of the girls were chatting about their husbands and the challenges of being involved in this hobby where weekends and nights are when most of the events occur. I had nothing but good things to say about my husband in this area. Today he watched little Matthew for 14+ hours, when Matt was MAJORLY fussy all day from having vaccinations, just so that I could go to the crop and do my class. He always supports me, is willing to watch the kids, transport them here and there, will go WITH me to a crop to watch the kids and help out. He is a really great part of my life.
So on the way home I called him and just told him how much I really appreciate all he does for me so that I can do all the fun things I do, so I can be part of the giving that Scrapbook Royalty is about, and so that I can be as involved in everything scrappy as I am. This is the kind of stuff I always want to remember. These moments when I realize that I have a really awesome life. So that is what I am going to scrap about. Being able to give back while doing a hobby I love and being able to do all of that because I have an awesome husband and family who support me. And of course I'll include my crazy busy schedule today! LOL
