I think (hope) I've been bitten by the Creativity Bug

It's been quite some time since I've done any scrapbooking. I've been so busy and never have the energy to drag out all the supplies and try to be creative. I've been a little stressed about the fact that I'm having a new baby in 3 months and I'm not anywhere near being done with Amelia's baby book. For Lily I did a 12x12 album of her first year and admitted defeat after that, agreeing with myself that if I could just do a book of each child's first year, that would just have to be good enough.

Occasionally I get emails from Creating Keepsakes and Simple Scrapbooks magazines telling about new products and such. I usually just delete them, knowing I'm not going to do any scrapbooking until I have the rest of my client photo work done and off my conscience (still designing 3 albums.) A few nights ago I was up at about 3:00am with some wicked heartburn, so I stopped to browse the email announcing the Kit of the Month.

For the first time in a long time, I got excited about scrapbooking. There might just be hope for Mystery Boy to have a baby book. Check this puppy out:

It's everything you need to create a 12x12 baby album and everything is reversible so you can use it for a boy or girl. What really sold me on the kit was watching this video of Becky Higgins showing off the kit. I love the journaling cards and the cool skinny sections for writing details about each month. I also like the family tree section, the time capsule section, and the sections for mom and dad to write something. The kit also includes several memorabilia pockets and divided sheet protectors so you don't have to do a full-on layout on every page. When I found out the whole thing only cost $44.95, I knew I had to have it.

Here's hoping I'll be creative during the long cold winter in Cokeville!

I saw this too. I was almost tempted to buy it as well, but thought it might be strange because I don't have a baby to scrapbook for. But you can never be too prepared right? It's so cute, you'll have to show off the album when your finished. I can't believe how fast your pregnancy has gone (to me at least), I'm excited to see little Mystery Boy when he gets here!

I love you Sue. Heartburn I don't love.
