Recently re-watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This movie really messes with your mind. Have you seen it? He’s born an old man and ages backwards. He loves his family and then a girl. They travel thru time, at a different pace, and it really makes you think about the things that we need in our life!
I challenge you to really think about the things you need. What makes you happy? Time with family and friends? A certain hobby? Helping others? Find ways to incorporate those items into your life. Let go of items that don’t bring you joy.
I get asked this question a lot! Scrapbooking can seem a bit overwhelming. You see so many ideas on Pinterest and other idea websites. Here’s my simple steps to get started …

Which is what you want to do! But then you come back and pull all the photos together and it can be so overwhelming. Hopefully this article helps you sort it all out!
So I have two goals with my photos … think about your goals.
Not sure how I came across these YouTube videos about tiny houses, but I just can’t stop watching them. I’m fascinated about how people are choosing such a minimalist lifestyle. It seems to open up so many creative possibilities. Whether you build your own or hire it out, there are so many beautiful options.
