I have decided...

to take a break....am not applying or accepting anymore DT position. Its been tough lately to find a little time to scrap. Kids are demanding more time from me and by end of the day i get so exhausted and all i can think about is rest rest rest. All this while i have been sacrificing my sleeping time. When the kids goes to bed usually by 10pm and this is where i start my scrap work and i will scrap till really late.

Because i was sooo into scrapbooking, i usually wakes up being tired. Being a single mom when my husband is away working is really a challenge. I reached a point that i have to decide what matters most.... i am getting sick more frequently and is really not good in the long run. I just want to relax and scrap my family photos with no deadlines.

When i think about it..i have been doing this for the past 2.5 years. Its time to really slowdown. Most of DTs work will end by June. Don't get me wrong...i will not stop scrapping but i just want to scrap freely with no timeline. I just want to have fun...

Its been 2 weeks since my last post. I was really tired, can't even get myself to scrap but i am so happy my mojo came back yesterday. I was dying to play with Nikki's New Collection Bella Blue and Oscar Too. I came out with this idea and i hope u like it.

Nadhrah - It's a good decision. One I made 2 years ago and when we have young kids - the most important is to spend more time with them and to nurture them. At this point in time, scrapbooking is taking a back seat to the kids and remains a faithful hobby to which I enjoy from time to time. No pressure - just having fun.

I am sure that in time - when you are ready - you will start out again and I am looking forward to that.

hi Nadhrah, hope you're getting your well~deserved rest :) i can totally relate with being a single parent especially when the hubby is away for long periods of time.

definitely kids come first and hope you're doing well and most importantly, Enjoy whatever you're doing with no timeline required ;)

Take care!
