Wow! I'm posting 2 days in a row! I remember the days when I would post every.single.day. That was "before Jeralyn". Anyway, I wanted to share about a page I worked on this morning while Quent took Jeralyn on a hike (what a great husband/daddy!). I'm waaaaay behind on her baby journal, but I have things organized pretty well so that I can just come back on the computer and know where I left off without feeling terribly overwhelmed. Yesterday, my creative juices started churning again. So that along with some motivation to get involved in a sale that Persnickety Prints is having, I thought it would be good to complete some of these journal pages. So this morning I played! But I felt myself getting stuck in the creative rut again. This is my first draft:
I don't like it. I don't care for it. But I was ready to settle so I could continue on. I took a break and when I came back I just knew I had to change something. The pictures were too big on the page, so I shrunk them and then I felt like the creative juices could flow again. It's amazing what one little change can do!
And this is my final draft! I love it! I love the blend of colors and all of the fun details. I'm SO glad I took a break and changed things because now I'm truly satisfied! Yeah!
Recently I found myself stuck on whether or not to continue some type of journaling for Jeralyn. I thought about doing a monthly journal after she turned 1 year, but now that she's almost 14 months and I haven't been keeping track of much of anything since then, I'm thinking I won't do a journal for each month. But I'm still having a mental debate over it. I don't want to miss anything about her changes/growth at this time! I need to make a decision fast!
