Can't Wait to Do This

I found this Spanish proverb in the new Close to MY Heart Idea Book and just love it.

hOw beAuTifUl iT iS TO
dO nOThIng,
And Then reST afTerwArd!

I love it because: #1. I'm half Spanish. And #2. That may explain why I am so good at doing nothing and needing a nap when I'm done. Trouble is, I've really been wanting to do just that ever since I read it, but, I've been way too busy. Soon, maybe, soon...

I FINALLY finished reorganizing my scrap/former school room so I could put away all the cool scrapbook stuff I've been collecting but had no room for. Now I can actually start scrapping again. I've done a little bit now and then. But mostly, I've just been collecting. Feeling too overwhelmed. Where to begin? What do I REALLY want to accomplish when I scrap? What are my priorities? Scrapping time is too precious to waste... I'm having a hard time getting those creative juices flowing again. Stacy Julian's book, thebigpicture, was helpful. And blog-surfing. And starting my own blog. Now it is time to practice another proverb I love. This one is Korean: to begin is half the battle.......Guess it's time to begin!

But first, another thing I've been wanting to do is to daily jot down a few of the things I am grateful for. God is so good to me. I need to focus on all my "haves" instead of my "have nots" So here are a few for today:

Spring is here and the sun is actually shining!

This is the third day in a row that I've gotten up early.
(that's close to a miracle for this "morning challenged" night owl)

I don't have to worry about where my next meal will come from
(or the next, or the next...)

My husband still loves me even though I spend way too much $ on scrap stuff
(note to self: use more/spend less)

I have all afternoon to play with my scrap stuff...

ahh yes it is true.
to begin IS half the battle. I've been trying to get started cleaning my scrap area for two days now. ::sigh:: I'll get to it.... eventually LOL I dare you to post before and after pictures. I'll do it if you do it!
