...that doesn't require a computer screen! I've put off a lot of the scrapbooking projects that I've had in the back of my mind for far too long. Why? Because I didn't want to look through all those pictures I knew I had of Murphy. Maybe I'm just being a big baby, but I just haven't been ready to look at that furry face since she died. I know I probably *need* to just bite the bullet and dedicate a scrapbook project to her, but I haven't bring able to bring myself to it. She may be "just a cat", but she couldn't have been any more a part of our family than if she was one of the kids! Eleven years is a long time, and Murphy's silly personality is sorely missed.
So WHY am I putting this off? Why am I torturing myself, not engaging in a hobby that was a wonderful outlet for me and one of the very few things I did just for me? It seems silly, to avoid a whole activity just because I don't want to run into painful memories. In fact, I know from experience that documenting the good memories helps to rid myself of the bad. So I guess it's time to dust off the scissors and adhesive sticks, get out the patterned paper and chipboard and just start scrapping. After all, I've missed scrapping almost a year of Danica's life. I am WAY behind!
Maybe I'll go indulge in a scrapbook magazine to get my creative juices flowing. Hmm...and maybe I'll even see if I can find some kitty stickers or cat-themed paper!
