Now that the busy half of our year is finished (we think), I want to catch up on some of the classes I’ve been hoarding so far this year. Because I love them, and it helps me justify buying more classes right?
One of the year-long classes I’m taking is Stacey Julian’s Inspired Scrapbooking class. It’s like a slimmed down version of the Twelve class I took back in 2012. Twelve totally revolutionized the way I scrapbook and I’ve been using Stacey’s way of gathering inspiration for stories ever since, but I haven’t actually done any of the assignments for Inspired Scrapbooking yet.
As I was listening to July’s video message from Stacey earlier this month, I opened up a file in Evernote and started writing. I came up with ideas for six pages and one blog post that I wanted to do for the Places topic. I hope to share those throughout the rest of July.
Here’s my first page inspired by a Place. It doesn’t fit in exactly with the class prompts, but I’m totally ok with that. It describes Jason’s commute, and how glad I am that it’s finally over.
Journaling reads- When Jason changed jobs, his commute went from 10-15 minutes to well over an hour. The trip from West Palm to Coral Springs was rough, and he made it two years. Sometimes that would mean he’d be out of the house for over 12 hours a day, between working overtime + the commute. I hated that he had to drive so much on the highway. I would worry So Much every morning until he would text me from work, and every evening until he would arrive safely home. I’m so glad that commute is a thing of the past!
