Scrapbook Musings

Well, Tammy and I sent off the stamps to be made yesterday. I'm really sort of in shock that Green Grass Stamps will really be. I love the stamps designs though, and I can't WAIT to get my hands on them and start creating. It should just be a few weeks now. Soon I'm going to start contacting web sites about carrying our stamps. I've also been working on the "girl" sheet, which will be too cute. I'm going to have to borrow some photos to do those layouts once we get the stamps. We're also going to come out with a "boy" sheet too, which will be really, really fun to use on all my pages. And who knows, maybe I'll have my own girl to scrapbook soon. (Speaking of which, we find out on Wednesday if this is a boy or a girl!)

On a related note, I've been thinking a lot about my scrapbooking lately. I was putting up some layouts on 2Peas, layouts that I thought were my best, and not one of them was made in the last 3-4 months. That is so depressing. Somehow I feel like I've lost my muse. In trying to get better and better, I've gotten WORSE! I've also started to worry about "catching up" with my photos, and that's just making it worse as well. My layout times have gone way, way down, which would be fine if quality didn't go with it. Maybe it's just because of all the pressure from design teams, etc. Or maybe because the boys are more demanding than they used to be? Or maybe I'm just sick of it? It has gotten to be a job instead of a hobby. I think I'm just going to tell myself that I can spend as long as I want on a layout, and stop putting so much pressure on myself. I'm going to try it tonight. I love scrapping and I don't want to lose my love of the hobby, but I also would like to be one of the best, you know?

I'll post my results when I finish.
