So I've been wanting to create a blog for a long time. But what am I going to write about??? I'm a stay-home mom living in a small town with a handful of animals. I have this drive to do something... but what.
I was talking to a friend about this... telling him I know I want to do something, but I have no idea what that something is. I've been praying about it, thinking God would give me the answer... but nothing. Sure I've gotten hints along the way, but I needed something more. I told my friend, I wish God would just speak up and tell me what I'm supposed to do!!!
Well, this weekend God answered me - LOUD AND CLEAR!
I got a text from my sister-in-law asking if I was interested in any scrapbooking supplies (apparently they were getting rid of some stuff at work). Ummm... yes! Of course! Always interested in scrapbooking supplies!!!
As you can see, this wasn't just a few pieces of cardstock and a couple embellishments. This was the MOTHER LOAD. I felt like I won the lottery (if you're a scrapbooker, you totally know what I mean).
Here's the deal. I'm a scrapbooker. I've scrapbooked my entire life, and I LOVE IT. Everyone who knows me knows this about me. Sure, scrapbookers are easily made fun of. I get a lot of "you seriously sit around all weekend and just... scrapbook?" Yes. Yes I do. And I love every single minute of it!
So scrapbooking is my thing. I am seriously just creating this blog to make me feel like I have a job. I know, I know... raising your kids is a full time job. Being a stay home mom is a full time job. Here's the deal: I love my kids. I wouldn't change being a stay home mom for ANYTHING... but I need something besides just being a mom. So this is it - my pretend job :) welcome to 'Small Town Me'.
So, whether it's scrapbooking, organizing, or just finding ways to fill my day, I'm just excited to have you along with me on this adventure. Thank you for giving me this 'job opportunity' and thank you God for speaking up.
