It started innocently enough.
I was dropping some laundry off in Aidan's room and noticed that her nightstand looked, well, artistically arranged.
I thought: I should take a photo.
Then I thought: I should take photos of ALL of our nightstands right now, as they are.
Then I thought: Get a life.
Then I went ahead and took the photos.
Then I went ahead and made this page:
Then I thought to myself: Man, you're good.
Other than the obvious ego bump, I really do love this little slice of life. I mean, its cell phone photos of nightstands plus a list of the found contents.
A super simple hybrid page using a digital template, a few images, some cardstock and adhesive.
Whenever I focus on making the kinds of pages that I really want to make it feels like my creativity is actually working again.
Or maybe it's less about creativity and more about inspiration.
In fact, it's totally more about inspiration.
And it's definitely not about obligation.
Find a simple story that you want to tell today and tell it in a way that makes you say, "Man, you're good."
It's good for your soul.
Note to self: Ask Dan how he's enjoying Lolita.
