hello out there!
so i am new to this whole blogging scene, but am quickly becoming hooked! it's amazing to me that some random person sitting who knows where, can captivate an infinity number of people with their simple musings (not that that is what i will accomplish...i'm just saying). i love to peek into others lives from their own perspective...it helps me put perspective on my own life.
this all began for me when i delved a little deeper into the world of scrapbooking. yes, i too am totally, helplessly, unapologetically HOOKED!!! as cheesy as it sounds, it has changed my life, and this is why: i am in a constant state of awareness. things that were oh so ordinary before, have suddenly become worthy of not only a picture, but hours of my time scrapbooking that picture and making it artistic! feet... hands... everyday objects... heck, even food - all of it is insanely interesting to me! i can only describe it as an awakening. i have always considered myself creative and crafty, but this is way different. this, and i can't believe i'm going to spout off something this corny, is a way of life for me now!!! seriously...it's what i think about, or at least always lingering, in the back of my head. i will even go as far to say that it has enhanced my relationships. i pay more attention to the little details in the ones i love. the way they talk, eat, play, laugh. i want to chronicle all of it! i want to figure out a way to somehow attach my camera to my belt, jeans, purse, whatever...just so that it's always within reach. moments come and then they go...gone...poof... but there is a way to immortalize that moment in time, and this is what motivates me. i could go on forever (and kind of have) about the joys, nay.....the exhileration of my new-found passion....but for now i will get back to everyday life. =) i could get used to this blogging business!
