Inspiration, New Year, Quotes, Resolutions, Scrap Book


I get excited about starting a new year. Over the past ten years or so I have started a fresh scrap book at the beginning of each year. Itís somewhere to keep those new yearís resolutions, a copy of my horoscope for the year, some quotes and pictures I find inspirational. As the months go by I add all sorts of bits and pieces to my scrap book. I find it a positive experience to look at the current book as the year passes. It is also very interesting to look back at scrap books from past years.

For me, New Year seems a suitable time to reassess where I am going. Each year I make new yearís resolutions but I limit the number and I make them achievable. There is nothing positive in setting myself up for failure. Most of my current resolutions are centred on spending more time doing things I enjoy and taking care of myself.

I like to look at my horoscope but I only take notice if the predictions are positive. Horoscopes are not something I spend much time pondering over but I like to have a quick look.

There are lots of thought provoking quotes around in magazines, on calendars and on the internet. I put some quotes into each scrap book. Sometimes I cut them out of magazines. At other times I type them up using interesting fonts and various sized fonts and colours. I may add a graphic or a photo if I am feeling creative.

I love collecting quotes

I add pictures I like to my scrap book throughout the year. Some are beautiful and others are quirky. Sometimes I print off photos I have taken and paste them in.

I also include pictures of clothes that appeal to me. Some of these are things I would never wear because they wouldnít suit me but I include them because I like looking at them. Usually I mix things up so there may be a few quotes, some clothes, a poem and a photo on a double page spread. I figure life is a mixture of experiences so I donít feel a need to keep all the images of clothes together, all the quotes in another section of the book and so on.

Most pages include a mixture of topics

Last year I went to a couple of self development workshops. I pasted the hand outs into my scrap book. Sometimes I include greeting cards, theatre tickets, the label from a special bottle of wine or information about I movie I enjoyed.

When I am in a creative mood I add bits of ribbon, lace, sequins and other decorations to the pages. Sometimes I use stickers or cut outs from wrapping paper. When I had some left over glitter nail polish I used it to decorate some pages.

Decorated pages

These scrap books are just for me. This means there are no rules about what can be included or how the pages are laid out. I get pleasure out of keeping them. For me, an important part of the new year is the starting of a new scrap book.

Thanks for sharing - love this idea xxx
Thanks for your comment, Mina. A quote I have pasted in my current scrap book is 'I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.' Neil Gaiman.
