Chances are, if you are here, then you have a drive to create in some form or another. It's a powerful feeling; one to be celebrated, and even, recorded.
Right now, it seems, that my kids just think I am nutty and a little obsessed with taking pictures and scrapbooking. But one day, I like to think that they will look back fondly, and say, "Oh, my darling mother, (who was always so lovely and nice and beautiful), was so passionate about capturing beauty and making things. What an inspiration she is to me..."
In case they don't come to that conclusion themselves, I've captured that part of me in some pages. Since I am nutty and a little obsessed with taking pictures and scrapbooking, I feel like my heart is laid bare on these layouts.
I even get to be creative in my non-scrapbooking life, and it feels exatrordinarily powerful to me:

What are the reasons you create?
What do you feel as you are creating?
Do you feel your creative juices flowing in other areas of your life, as well? At work? In the kitchen? In the garden?
If so, by all means, record it! What a gift to yourself and your loved ones, to share this bit of yourself.
