What is Scrapbook Rehab? In a word, Scrapbook Rehab is a reminder.
Scrapbook Rehab is all about creating your life by using scrapbooking as a tool to make visual reminders of what your goals and dreams are. It’s important for us to have reminders of what our goals and dreams are to keep us on track. Due to the PTSD that I suffered and my inability to read at the time, those reminders needed to be visual.
It is my mission to share how I am using Scrapbooking to inspire myself to achieve my goals and create the life I have always dreamed of.
Too often in life, as we get older and take on more responsibility, we push those things that make us joyous (like scrapbooking) to the side. We think they are a “treat” and if we accomplish this, that and the other then we can do something fun.
What I have discovered is that it is through the things that make me smile that I accomplish more with my time because I am doing it with a new energy that makes me work faster and more passionately without even realizing it.
I mean, just think of how much more you would want to look at your daily to-do list if it was written in colorful pens, or on colorful paper, or on a calendar that you scrapbooked!
This is what Scrapbook Rehab is all about! Not only did scrapbooking the past help (and let’s face it, it’s still helping me. After all, I’m a work in progress) me to deal with issues of PTSD, abuse as a child, my parents divorce and an eating disorder, but scrapbooking the future I see in my head has helped me to get excited about working towards and achieving my dreams.
The blogs and features:
SCRAPBOOK THE WEIGHT OFF is about the fact that I refuse to be a chubby bride. I had lost more than 40 pounds right before the crash only to have them come back on in spades so there’s a bit of frustration there. And, having battled an eating disorder in my teens and twenties, I have to make sure I’m loosing weight in a healthy way. I have become a LINDORA LEAN FOR LIFE AMBASSADOR. I am using their program to lose 100 pounds. It’s a tough program, but I know it really works because it’s the program I was on before the crash. This blog will be all about my weight-loss journey.
A SCRAPBOOK LIFE is about the inspiration I find in day-to-day life. Since healing from PTSD, I really want to take in everything I can. But, I can be a total work-a-holic so there are times when I do not stop to smell the roses. I want this blog to make it so I have to at least once a week. I want to be conscious of the beauty around me.
I will also be posting some of my goal pages, some tips and resources and videos from time to time.
It is my mission to share with you how I am working on and using scrapbooking to live a better life in the hope that you might get some inspiration to do the things you’ve always wanted to do and live the best life you can.
And, who knows, you might just find some really cute page layouts you can steal as well ;-)
