More than the last 2 years, my One Little Word for 2011 has affected my daily life. I think more about my choices, my word, my goals.
Last weekend’s scrap marathon was really a kickstart for me since I haven’t really scrapped anything besides December Daily since the beginning of December.

So, after the marathon concluded the inspiration just kept rolling.

One of Captain Chaos’ favorite activities is watching my screensaver. It randomly chooses photos from my library and tosses them into a pile on the screen and he loves to look for himself in the pictures. I was watching them with him and enjoyed hearing him talk about all of the photos.
