It’s a new year! Did you make any resolutions? I’m afraid that I just don’t have the discipline that it takes for resolutions. I did, however find it fun last year to make a bucket list of sorts. I refer to it as my Bucket List of Things that May or May Not Happen.
This sort of list is actually great fun to make. Start by making a running list and add to it as you think of things throughout the day. This list would be compiled of things that you would actually like to do, see, or accomplish AND things that you would love to be able to do, but know that the odds are probably against you. For me this was “to play the violin like Lyndsey Stirling.” Do I play the violin? No. So, it’s pretty unlikely that this will ever come to be . . . but, hey a girl can dream. :O)
So, start making your list and write down things that you’d like to do, see, accomplish, etc and be sure to add small, very doable things to the list, too. What’s fun is looking back at that “half serious” list that you made and finding that you actually did some of them without even knowing it.
Now, if you’ve already made a bucket list, don’t let that stop you from making a page. Change it up a bit, put a spin on it or check off that previous list and see how far you’ve come. The idea is to get another AAM page into your book that shows your personality and documents a little more of where you are right now in your life. (Don’t forget to date this one.) Have fun!
Kim and Beckie have joined me in creating pages in hopes of inspiring you to make your own page.
Kim’s page is so bright and fun. Her list is a perfect blend of adventure, culture, fun and romance. So many great things here!
Kim used these products to create her page: Office Brushes and Stamps Vol2, Aged Alphabet Brushes and Stamps No2, Assorted Messy Stitches No3, Be Labeled: Love, Cardstock Tabs No3, Color Study Clusters: Yellow, Crowning Affair: Vibrant Add-On Paper Pack, Curated Studio Mix Kit No12, Fastener Basics No1, Little Bits Alphabet, Messy Stamped Alphabet No2, Messy Stamped Alphabet No3, Messy Stamped Alphabet No4, Messy Stamped Alphabet No5, Mixed Stamped Alphabet, Pattern Mix: Happy BoyPaper Pack, Powder paper Pack, Simply Moroccan paper Pack No4, Simply Patterned: Neutral Paper Pack, To the Sea Add-On Paper Pack, Words+Pictures: Love Paper Pack.
Beckie created a fabulous page where the journaling is so creative and fun. It tells the reader that she would love to do this or that, but that she would be perfectly happy if things where headed in the right direction, but didn’t quite hit the mark. In my opinion, this is a great way to look at life.
Beckie’s supply list looks like this: Atlantic Element Pack, Pebbled Ledger Alphabet No1, Written Words: Love Brushes and Stamps No1, Messy Doodle Frames Brushes and Stamps No2, Kerava Solids Paper Pack.
Since I made a list last year, I made a companion page.
