I used 12x12 divided page protectors for my LSNED lessons this year, with two 4x6 sections for each day. I shared my title page here and my completed pages for the 1st through the 18th here, here, here, here and here. I got off track a little after that but I was still journaling my activities and lessons for the day, so I took time one morning to go through and print photos for the 19th - 30th and got all my journal cards completed a few days ago.
On the 19th as I was getting ready to head to the crop in Corsicana, it occurred to me that I am never going to be mistaken for a light packer. At the crop I remembered that cropping with friends means someone always has the tool or embellishment I forgot. And after three full days of scrapping (and a little less sleep than I'm used to), I had to admit that sometimes I may have to miss out on a little fun (and head home early) in order to take care of myself.
After a good night's rest, the next day I had to laugh because Robbie tends to make more food than we need for just the two of us . . . which, of course, makes for wonderful leftovers. I also contemplated how a productive Monday at home is the best way for me to begin a new week. And then at a friend's Pampered Chef party, I decided sometimes it's fun (& perfectly OK) to splurge on something new even if the old items don't necessarily NEED to be replaced.
At the Bible study I'm leading, our lesson for the 25th was that our greatest desire should be to do the will of the Lord. The next day we decided that we like the new Marvel TV series - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And another day of scrapping with my friend Michelle confirmed that scrapping and chocolate are the perfect pair!
And finally to round out the month, I was reminded that it makes me so happy to see photos of our nephews and what they're up to so far away. I also realized that weekend cooking is one the ways Robbie relaxes and unwinds after a long week at work. (Lucky me!) And I learned that my new video and article about encouraging women to speak at events will be published on the womensministry.net website on October 9th. (You can check out my video & article here!)
I had the back of the final page protector left, so I created a page similar to my title page.
I added a little journal box as a conclusion to this fun project!
