Where's the beach?

No stamping today. Just a photo from my PAD collection. This is what my deck currently looks like and it just makes me want to escape to the beach forever! I am craving warmth and sunshine like never before. With the low single digit temps and snow that I am sure won't thaw til June makes me crave sand between my toes.

I am having trouble with this Photo A Day (PAD) thing and I am finding that my oh so exciting life is really oh so boring. What the heck am I supposed to be photographing? Any good ideas on how to make my photo taking more meaningful rather than so random and boring? Who the heck wants to scrap about snow and soup? But right now....that's all I have in my hot and cold life.....soup and snow...snow and soup.

Hey, I have some crafty stuff to give away. I have a ton of those tonic punches that I have never used....not my thing....but I am sure they are a great tool for someone else. They were given to me and I have no use for them. I feel some blog candy coming on....oh and I have some JustRite sets to give away too.....lots of them. Sweet. I'll put it together and post it this weekend.

See ya on the blog.

I'm with you this PAD is hard to keep up with, I feel as though there is nothing fun to capture so mine is quite boring. I must confess I sometimes have to take a few when I forget daily!!

Oh My that is a lot of snow! I guess it is really more about capturing and journaling your life....so things that seem boring to you now may not be so boring to your kids in the years to come!

ok, there was a .pdf on creating keepsakes that had a bunch of ideas when they introduced thier kit to do the project...I can't quite locate it. There's this thread on flickr:

Has some good ideas and some ridiculous ones and some bad/sort of gross ones...a very interesting list though, from a lot of people who have done the project for years. Good luck. Glad to hear your reflections on appreciating being stress-free - certainly an admirable feat.
