Well, Karen is teaching a new online course at NYC Scraps about mini books called "Holiday Mini Book Formulas". If you know anything about Karen, she is all about the journaling. She is the kind of person that takes scrapbooking seriously because it is all about the story and the art is all very personal. It is not to be judged because it is just about YOU. She is sincere in her writing, pages and mini. The story behind the picture is what you get. You really do get a sense that you are right there along with her and her family. You can check out her challenge blog too. It is called Creative Therapy . I encourage you to go and read it. The challenges are always thought provoking and will definitely get you thinking.
So I hope you check out her class, you sure don't want to miss this. If you love mini's and getting those precious stories told, then this is the class for you!

I celebrated my 30th birthday this year. A very big event in any one's life. I have read and seen people go crazy over how old they are getting and yet I did not share their worries. I did however wanted to look good and loose a bit of extra pounds. Just so I can look back and say..."dang I was HOT!" when I am old and wrinkled up, lying in my warm comfy bed next to my sweet husband, looking at my soon to be mini album holding this particular picture. I didn't feel the pain of of adding another year into my life. I was proud to be 30 years old! In fact I think I told everyone I knew. So this picture not only represent what I look like, but it also reminds me of how I handled getting older, being totally happy, feeling healthy and just perfectly content about everything in my life.

I know, I know....so dramatic! But seriously, I have really been thinking about this and this is the direction I want to take from now on. Will it be hard, yes! I'm pretty sure breaking any bad habits will. Taking the necessary time to create meaningful projects...that's hard..check! Finishing anything I start....hard.. check!
So this might be just what I needed. So I will be picking my 10 pictures that represent me "NOW", will post them here (having a hard time downloading pics right now) and then off to make my mini. Will post my mini when I am done. Hope you all decide to check it out and look at the challenge and see if this is something you want to do!
Here is it:
You have everything you need right now to be vibrant, happy and fully engaged in the creative process of life. Sometimes you just have to slow down, look around and realize it! Here’s what I want you to do …
• Snap ten or twelve photos of your life right now. Or find recent photos that you've already taken.
• Compile these photos in one of these super-cute Bazzill Mono-Mini albums (keep reading)
• Keep or carry this album with you, tucked in your purse or desk drawer for one full year.
• Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it out.
• On October 1st, 2009, create a scrapbook page about your experience.
For more info here's her blog: Stacy's blog
Oh, on a side note I also want to do Ali's A Week in the Life...! Yea, I know there's so much I want to do. But that's how I am, I need idea's, list of things to do. Otherwise, I'll go crazy. LOL!
