Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to slow down and reflect on what is really important. It’s also a great time to spend time with those we love and hold dear to us. Enjoy your time with family and loved ones and be sure to let them know just how important they are in your life.

A wonderful way for you to remember the important people and things in your life is to scrapbook them. With the holidays here, finding the time to scrapbook these memories may be a little more difficult. But it definitely doesn’t have to take a lot of your time. In fact, you can always just jot down some of your favorite memories this season and then scrapbook them after the holidays when things slow down. Just keep a small notebook handy to capture special conversations and anything else that you want to be sure to remember.

If you do have some down time and feel like scrapbooking while dinner’s in the oven, children are napping, or in between wrapping gifts, we have a couple quick layouts that will inspire you!

    My relatives are all fighting w/each other and went out of town so certain folks couldn’t go. Isn’t that nice? My hubby and I decided to remodel our living room today – lots of fresh paint and cool wall treatment. I made lemon pepper chicken saute for dinner with apple pie for dessert. Mmm! Happy Thanksgiving! I hope yours is much better than mine (relative-wise).

    Lemon oil may be used in aromatherapy. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system, but may enhance mood.
