Note to Self

Play When You Can 1 Karissa Cole 2014

Just a bit of friendly advice to my future self.

Smashing

Last summer I picked up Smashing as a new hobby. I was going through a really hard time and it became kind of a crutch for me. Before I knew it I had purchased tons of scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies. I was a wee bit of a shopaholic to be honest. Heh heh. But I’ve put all my new toys to good use, though. I recently went on vacation and have been smashing my memories.

I visited Seaworld so one of the pages I’ve done up here is a memorabilia page: postcards, tickets, tags, receipts, brochures, a park map; fun things to take out of the page pockets and look at.

One of the smaller pages I made up kind of speaks to my vanity I guess. I lost about 30% of my body weight in 2013 so naturally I look a lot different for this trip. Long story short I bought a new wardrobe, new glasses and got a new haircut and I thought it was something I might want to document so it all got smashed, too. On the new me page there’s a pocket behind the photo with tags receipts, and a pull out journaling card about it all.

Another of the pages I made is of me and my sister. One day someone caught a candid shot of the two of us outside the aquarium entrance that I liked quite a bit so made a page for that.

I also smashed a map of the area we stayed in, the place we stayed at, and some photos from a quiet night of goofing off. It’s fun. I think it’s a nice way to preserve and share things I want to remember.

On a sidenote: I’m quite possibly addicted to using brads.
