Organize your Stuff: Week 1 (round 4): OLW Blog Hop & Space Audit (part 2)
For those unfamiliar with OLW, it is a class by (and a mantra of) Ali Edwards at Big Picture Scrapbooking. We pick a word to encapsulate our year, and try to find it or live it in our everyday life. It is kind of like a New Year’s resolution without the guilt of being invited to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner where even the salads are over 1000 calories!
Our word is Embrace! This month we were prompted to find on small way to actively capture our word in our lives, and the POW laughed so hard, because for us, this was going to be easy! For us, pardon the tired cliché, March really did roar in like a Lion! And the biggest thing that we needed to Embrace was Change!
There were lots of other smaller, but by no means less significant things to Embrace this month as well. This month, our Cub Scout Den Leader resigned due to family issues, and suddenly Creative Me and the POW were promoted from crafty good idea fairy assistant to a full-fledged Den Leader and needed to Embrace Duty. This is interesting, as OCD Me does not participate. She has learned long ago that OCD tendencies and room full of Illusive Middle Child’s friends do not mix!
We Embraced Civics- Jury Duty, enough said (actually we did not really embrace it, we kind of grumbled and thought bad thoughts about the legal system, but still showed up). Finally, we totally Embraced Me Time, and had a blast at CKC Portland. Thanks Fabulous Spouse for the Christmas Present…and the sleep!
As for the space audit, definitely need to clean the pile of ???? that came out of the old scrap room. It seems to be spreading like the blob (or as a more contemporary reference, B.O.B. from Monsters vs. Aliens). Also, we lost our little clear ruler at CKC, and need another.
For those who love cards, here are the two that Creative Me made during our Copics I class.
Have fun! Here is the rest of the hop!
