Scrapbooking the Obscure

My mind goes faster than most. I’m not exactly sure why that is, but sometimes I feel too creative, if that’s possible. Ideas and plans come pouring out of me at such a rapid rate I cannot possibly keep up. I can find solutions to almost any problem by using my creativity.

Although there are times that I wish my mind would just rest. Just stay calm and not think about anything, there are still other times where I am thankful for that creativity and the constant movement my brain seems to be doing.

Allowing my creativity to just flow from time to time, I might pick up a pen and paper and just start making lists and notes on whatever topic I seem to be attacking at that time.

Recently, my mind was busy trying to come up with obscure and useless things that a scrapbooker could photograph or create layouts about, that might not otherwise make it into our albums. I came up with the following list. I have created a couple of the layouts so far, and intend to continue them. It’s fun looking at them and for whatever reason my family and friends enjoy these layouts more than some of the other more sentimental layouts.

What’s In Your Purse?

What’s In Your Fridge?

How organized/unorganized is your pantry?

What does your closet look like? And what’s in it?

What are must have items you like to keep in your car? Glove box? Trunk?

What’s hiding under your bed?

What chore do you absolutely despise doing? How often do you do it?

Which side of the bed do you sleep on?

How do you sleep at night? Back, stomach, side, curled up?

What was the worst book/movie you’ve read/seen? Why?

What are your worst habits? Have you ever had a bad habit you’ve broken?

What are your pet peeves?

Scrapbook three bad things that have happened to you in the past five years. Immediately afterwards, scrapbook five good things that have happened to you in the past year.

What item do you own that you are embarrassed to admit?

What’s in/on your nightstand?

What is your favorite article of clothing? Why?

Confession time. I just love creating, whether it’s to make a layout about the moldy cheese in my fridge or a layout about my son’s beautiful eyes.

What strange or obscure things do you scrapbook or journal about?
