For Today...

I (Janet) find inspiration for scrapbooking everywhere...magazines, blogs, real life, photos, books, galleries, and more.  Scrapbooking, for me, is about preserving the thoughts, stories, memories, and photos that accompany this life that I am living.  I love looking for new ways to document little "slices of life."  One of the ways that I do this from time to time is on my blog, in the form of a blog meme. A blog meme is "a type of Internet meme that requires active participation by the blogger...It's often a series of questions that a blogger answers to share some personal perspective or experience on random topics."  There are lot of them out there, but one of the ones I enjoy the most is taken from The Simple Woman's Daybook.  I love the simplicity of the prompts and the way it is like taking a mental picture of a particular moment of a particular day.  The prompts for this particular meme are:

FOR TODAY
Outside my window...
I am thinking...
I am thankful for...
From the learning rooms...(if this applies)
From the kitchen...
I am wearing...
I am creating...
I am going...
I am reading...
I am hoping...
I am hearing...
Around the house...
One of my favorite things...
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...(add your picture here)

See, so simple.  Some days, when I want to blog, but don't have a lot of time or just want to "capture life as it is right now" I use this.  And it got me to thinking...what a great way to create a "slice of life" scrapbook page.  In fact, I am tempted to try something really fun like recoding these prompts for a whole year...maybe starting with my 34th birthday?  In any case, I decided to start small and take one of  my blog posts and scrap purchase cialis online it. This was February 4th.

And here is another layout by team member Tara:

So how about you?  Why don't you save a little slice of life today and use these prompts.  I bet you'll love the result!
