You may have heard me occasionally claim to scrapbook. If you cast your memory way back, you'll even remember that I've shown you a thing or two that I have done (okay, just one, but it was a double book). I read Shimelle Laine's blog because she makes some beautiful stuff, and I hope that someday I will too--you know, with paper and page protectors instead of linen and fiber.

Shimelle recently announced that the 25th of every month will be "Scrap Your Day" day. When I first read about this, I looked to see what the 25th of every month will be: Friday, Sunday, Wednesday, Monday, Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday (and Christmas!). I thought this would be an interesting way to document the everyday which was, well, the point. She has a few pointers available. More here. Even if I don't get around to putting these photos in books, won't it be nice to have the pictures to remind myself that I exist on days that don't include cake and ice cream or aren't preceded by a long airplane or car ride? Yes, I think so.

Tonight's big excitement is the craft circle at the library. I'm bringing a new start. You guessed it!

I hope that craft night went better last night than the last time you attended!

Enjoy your new start! I love the idea of recording a day each month. I may do this, as more of a photo journal than actually scrapping it, but I think it's a great idea. I always think later about wishing I'd taken photos of more every day stuff, and not just special days.

I love documenting the every day. I didn't used to, and I moved a lot, and there's so much that I don't remember as much as I'd like about things that happened not on special occasions, but on, say ... Wednesday. Lovely idea.
