Because you know I *needed* another project, right?
Okay... so I got a color printer for Christmas. I really wanted one, because I felt the urge to do more hybrid-ish projects. I attempted one with my December Daily this year (and failed in regards to my original idea... but would I have failed if I would have had my own printer? hmmmm....) and that's the reason I asked for one. But then my project fell apart and I wasn't sure what to print. I posted a request for some ideas for a starter hybrid project in the forums at The Lilypad. Several people suggested that I pick a theme and then follow the pocket scrapping art journal prompts.
So I did...
My criteria for selecting a project was something with a purpose, but with no real deadline. This is perfect. There is a purpose, but there's no deadline... in fact, there's no end date at all! I had thought about doing this as a photo book at one time, but I'm not sure how I could ever call it done and send it to print... now I don't have to. The pocket scrapping art journal challenges, should help keep things moving along by helping me focus on one thing versus being overwhelmed with all of the choices. This week's prompt was something good in your life right now. I decided that what was good this week in terms of food, was making cinnamon rolls. There's nothing special about the recipe, it's just the one from my breadmaker's recipe book, but it's the one I make on snow days. Snow days are rare here... the kids have gotten out lately due to cold, but those aren't as fun. Snow days are best... especially ones after blizzards. Both times the next day has been really sunny and not too terribly cold... perfect for playing outside all day with friends and after playing outside, you need to come in to a warm, sweet treat, right? I may never make them again if there isn't another blizzard snow day... but it was fun to record the story (plus I knew I had the photos ready!). I can't wait until next week's challenge!
Okay... for someone who doesn't like to write, I sure rambled a lot today!
Oh... the kit I used for this was Just Jaimee's Snow Happy... it was perfect!
