The Christensen's slice of family life in a rural small Iowa Town
Welcome to our Family blog. We are currently living in Iowa Falls, IA.
We hope that our everyday things will brighten your day. It is my hope that this blog will be a way to communicate to our family and friends. I also hope that once we get more free time I can communicate fun things going on in our world, new recipes and crafty things I have done as Chloe will allow me too.
This picture was taken after a storm when it was still foggy outside... It's fall!
Fall is a great time for me to work on my Annual Report, A what you ask... Well in my crazy mind it's the only time I am not busy with random things, So I can work on my scrapbook, it also seems to be the time of year that I get a diffrent job... It seems to be a trend that in the fall I get "new job fever" I don't recommend getting it, as it's not great unless you are pregnant and need a stress free job. So I am back at Hobby Lobby, I enjoy doing the very basic cashier jobs and helping customers with their crafting needs, oh and the discount is great!
My annual Report is my scrapbook. I have decided to call it that because the only time I get to work on my scrapbook is in the fall, it is like an annual report that I can do once a year of all the pictures that I have took and put a scrapbook together with journaling and other random things. I have our Iowa City scrapbook that is 3/4 of the way done! yay I am so excited! and an 8x8 scrapbook I Call my Favorite Things,it includes the pictures I have gotten over the years with a story but I don't want to scrapbook them in a annual report Scrapbook sothey get's to go in this book. The idea behind it is one picture per page and a short story or paragraph that describes why I love it. There is a lot of random pictures... It should be fun to journal!
So if you need inspiration to work on your scrapbook, take a month or two and do it when you are not to busy. make a mess and don't worry to much about it, it's a temporary thing. It has worked for me the pass two years.
