Those of you who have read some of my past blogs will know that I have a project that is a constant work in progress. It is not something that I work on each and every day – or even once a week. Rather, it is one that I have been contributing to sporadically over many years. It is constantly evolving with subjects and themes that on the surface may look like they don’t have any real connection, except for one contributing factor … me! It covers many subjects that involve family traditions that go back through the years, and ones that have evolved as my children grow up. Yes – I have devoted entire pages to topics such as “holiday cereal”, “pyjama days”, the traditional “Wasgij” jigsaw puzzle that appears under the tree every Christmas, what I love about Spring, what I hate about Winter. Quirky things that I just do around the house – like when I’m baking and sing and dance around the kitchen with my music blaring – as it just seems to make the end result taste better! There are many more pages on different topics, and pages being added when I think of them. This is where page prints are fabulous as I can print at will and add to my album along the way – keeping my memories fresh and new – and the pages get added to the album in no particular order – something that is a big thing for a chronological scrapper like me! Then there are the pages that are specifically about me. Who I am, what I want from life, what I love to do, my favourite things – and so on and so forth.
Most of these pages are full of joy, or warm fuzzy feelings that evoke wonderful memories … but … now I’m going to share with you a page about what really irks me. It’s the bare bones of what gets on my nerves – things I really dislike. I hope you won’t judge me too harshly after reading this page. Maybe you’ll even sit there and nod along and agree with some of these things. Maybe – now that I’ve actually completed this page and had it printed and put into my album, I can let go of some of those things that drive me to distraction now that I’ve “written” them down, as I look at them and think – wow, why does that irritate me so much – I should definitely let that one go! Maybe you will even be inspired to create a page just like this – and hopefully share it with us on our Facebook page.
After all … let’s be honest … we all have things that we dislike doing – or behaviour that really gets our “hackles” up just a little (or a lot). Maybe it will do me the world of good now I’ve recorded these things and they are in print, and face the fact that these things are part of who I am, and what makes me, me!
