My Present

Update: I have enough for everyone that posted! So I will be contacting you all for addresses -

Discover your unique self through mindfulness - the state of being present in the moment. Experience new perspectives of yourself and how you view the world. Realize that your true self is perfect as it is. From Miraval Resort

So I am horribly LATE on this blog blitz, but better late than never! As you have probably already heard the wonderful Stacy Julian orchestrated this amazing blog blitz on October 1st. Her goal is to infuse the scrapbooking world and make us more aware of the here and now.

As Scrapbookers we spend so much time creating in the past and anticipating the future that we sometimes forget to live in the present. Your life is unfolding everyday, hour-by-hour and you have the opportunity to live and be happy. Let's bring the scrapbooking world together in a fun and potentially perspective-shifting challenge to be more aware, more grateful and more engaged with this thing we call life. Stacy Julian

If you already haven't - join Stacy and many other scrapbookers and 'give yourself a present'!
  • Snap ten photos of your life right now.
  • Compile these photos in a really small mini album (3x3 or smaller)
  • Keep or carry this album with you (desk drawer, car, purse) for ONE YEAR.
  • Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it out.
  • On October 1, 2009 - create a scrapbook page, blog post or journal about your experience. 

Your vision will become clear when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dream. Who looks inside, awakens. Carl Jung

Doing this project has helped me realize the important things in my every day life - they are really the small things that help keep me centered.

I have some Bazzill mono mini albums to give away and get you started! Leave a comment below (make sure we can contact you!) and I will draw 10 winners on Tuesday 21st. Are you ready to give yourself a present?
