The April Assignment for One Little Word was to capture our word in photos:
I did manage to capture these dares in photo form. I'm still eating Paleo and doing well with it. I've spent time scrapbooking and I went on a girls day out with my friend Rachel and caught the Cherry Blossom festival in Philadelphia. So yes, I am living my word! But a lot of my "daring" intentions (letting go, ask, make a difference) can be hard to capture in a tangible way, even though a lot of it has been happening lately.
My major "dare" for April was to clean/purge my Studio, including sorting through years and years of accumulated memorabilia. That is in the "Dare to Finish" category. And, just under the wire, I finished today!
I already had the girls' grade school through high school memorabilia sorted and into albums - the pages aren't all done, there is a lot of "stuff" in page protectors - but the bones are all there for those projects. Where I was hurting was all the stuff that had been pulled from their magnetic page baby albums and stuffed into boxes, bags, and envelopes. I had literally...
- three 12x12 album boxes;
- three shirt size gift boxes;
- one 13x13x7 box; and
- numerous 8.5x11 size envelopes
crammed full of photos, birthday cards, invitations, daycare art work, their baby books and more. It is now all loosely sorted into a single file folder box. And looking at this, it is abundantly clear to me that it is going to be difficult, at best, to fit their first five years into a single album each. But at least it is organized for when I am ready!
I dealt with a lot of other memorabilia which I'll talk more about in another post, another day!
To close out April, here's my tracker:
Looks like a pretty good month to me! (More to check off for the 30th, but hey, had to take the photo to prepare the post!
