Currently I'm enrolled in Get Organised & Inspired with Wendy Smedley.
My new path of enlightenment involves this:
an ever growing pile of magazine cut outs.
Part of the class suggests clipping the layouts and themes from magazines that inspire you.
I was very very reluctant to do this. And yet somehow I picked up my scissors and began to clip without a backward glance. One magazine down and I was hooked. Several magazines down and my binder was beginning to take shape.
One thing I have learned? I have a love of blue and red - it can be almost any shade of blue or red but I love in particular a shade of blue I've come to call Tiffany blue and the red? Cherry red. It makes me happy.
I thought at first I would have to, no need, to have very structured sections within this binder, but I have even managed to let go of that.
I started out sticking everything to white cardstock - and soon got tired of that. Now I simply rip the store lists and other "white" pages from the magazines and stick my clippings to them instead!
Now, whenever I look through this binder (or it may very soon end up as several binders) I am just itching and tingling and bursting with ideas and can't wait to go to my room and play!
Now, please excuse me, I need to go through Simple Scrapbooks 2008!
