Layout flashback:Remember when?
This is a layout of my 2nd child hard to believe that's been 6 and half years ago. What's even harder to remember is my scrapbooking style before Creating Keepsakes. I hadn't discovered them yet. I always like taking pictures , holding on to momentos and not wanting to forget
those small moments that I take for granted . I wished I had journaled what I was thinking and feeling because I dont remember great details. Zaria was still scratching herself in the face so that's why she has socks on in the lower half of the layout. I was about as happy as any really tired mother of a newborn could be. I love my child of course, but that's all I recall being totally exhausted . Well going forward I will be sure to a write more even if it's just for those everyday moments. I also miss this style of mine (Whatever you want to call it. I did take Art history and African American Art in college. My favorite artists are Picasso and Romare Bearden both artists are great at collages and I believe that was my influence at the time.
About This blog
My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
