Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s, Easter, Summer… June is so far away but I already have the first weekend of the month scheduled. My summer will kick-off in full scrapbook swing.
In a previous post I mentioned the Great American Scrapbook Convention, which provides a showroom of various scrapbook vendors. I was again reminded of the convention a few days ago when I received a Save the Date e-mail about it. The convention will be coming to the Arlington Convention Center on June 2 – 4.
While this seems to be way in the future (and it is), it gave me a burst of energy for a scrapbook project.
Over the next few weeks I will be attempting to create AMAZING holiday cards. I have done this in the past, but I want to further advance my creative juices in a non-scrapbook album way. I may even try my new digital scrapbook program and see what type of card options it provides.
In addition to that e-mail reminder, I have been finding scrapbook inspiration in all sorts of places, like magazine photos and layouts, outdoor scenery and even in the doodles I make in my notebook.
I believe we all can find inspiration for our creativity through the world around us. This may be especially needed for those who are not naturally creative (I am more not creative than creative, so I need inspiration).
The challenge this week (as cheesy as it sounds): View the world through every color, every image, every everything.
