Taking Care

So how was your weekend?  I have to admit to having sort of a blah weekend this time around.  I"m not sure I can explain why or how, I just know that my mood was a little low.  Do you ever have those kinds of days?    There have been times in my life when I've struggled with pretty serious depression and when I have days like I did this weekend, I perk up and try to take care to pay attention to my feelings.  I know that can lead me down a path I don't want to visit again so I do what I need to to heal and rest and feel alive again.

Today is better!

This layout was a bit of a challenge for me. Mainly because I did not plan it at all and just started sticking things down willy-nilly.  It turned out well in the end but there were some periods when I was really sweating it I have to admit.  I'm not a big planner in general.  That is to say, I don't draw out my layouts as a sketch beforehand very often.  However, I usually don't stick things down until I'm certain where I am going to go with it either.


  1. I guess some of the best layouts happen organically as this is a great one...from what I see! Hope that you are feeling better! Have a great day (even if it is a Monday) -Amanda

  2. I'm def the opposite - stick down and then think. Love this page and the way you framed the camera in the photo. Gorgeous!!

  3. I don't plan mine much beyond my head either! This is beautiful!

  4. Love the color combos in the layout, and it looks great - sometimes we are our own worst critique, but you did say you were pleased with how it turned out. That is a huge thing.

    And I think your "self care" as our family counselor calls it is a great idea and glad you were able to do what you needed to do to avoid a slide into the dark side.

  5. love this layout Ursula! Esp. the woodgrain letters and arrow combined with the vintage camera pp and kraft. Thanks for the blog by! :) Have a blessed day! :)


I really enjoy your feedback, so thanks a bundle for taking the time to leave it.
