a few of my not so favorite things

In this post, I shared with you the Shipping Tag mini book, which I've had on my craft desk begging me to play with it. And I did, but in an unconventional way. I contemplated not even sharing this at all. Then, one night after the girls were in bed {and Zach was out doing what 19-year olds do until midnight} Gordon and I were talking. And he was speaking of something that happened during his day and said, "I hate indecision." That comment convinced me that I shouldn't be afraid to share this AND that he and I are soooo much alike.


And by seeing the opening page below, you'll know why I hesitated. I am betting, though, that many of you will have some of the same "hates" I do.



I'm not saying that you should document your dislikes, only that it's okay to go the unconventional route once in a while. It's all part of who we are and someone, somewhere in the future, will find this just as interesting as the "Things We Love" mini albums and layouts we've all made.

{ Now you know much more than you ever wanted to know about me. }

If you're up for the challenge of stepping out of your comfort zone, or just want to use this mini book to share some loving thoughts, I have some {you get a set of two} available in the shop. And they come with those darling kraft punched shape embellishments you see below.

  1. i on the other hand actually think that you should record things you dislike! i mean everyone has something that makes them tick, right? scrapbooking tend to focus on only the good things. I LOVE that you did this and that you decided to share it :)

  2. Totally think its cool to record what we dislike, and many of yours equally show what a kind person you are!

  3. I love this idea. I've been trying to think of a way to capture all of my thoughts/feelings as I process what has happened the last month-this is perfect. I think I'm going to work on this tonight while we watch TV-thanks once again for the inspiration! ;)

  7. Really? I love lima beans!!! ;) Enjoyed reading your dislikes as much as the idea for the album itself. I think that we reveal just as much about ourselves with what we hate as what we love. Great idea!!!
