Month in Numbers | April

Not all of April was awful.
Some of April was amazing and awesome,
and I chose to record the more positive aspects of the month.
22: the number of scrapbook pages I made for our albums.
You have no idea how less sad {as opposed to happy} scrapbooking makes me.
21: the number of times I took the pooch for a walk.
#66: the number of images I posted to Instagram.
19: the number of pieces of Happy Mail sent around the globe by me.
4: the number of blisters caused by my new silver sandals.
105: the number of photos I took for my just-for-me London in Spring photography project.
13: the number of items given to the charity shop or via freecycle: 9 bags of clothes and bric-a-brac, 3 lampshades and one storage chest. 
 Month in Numbers is the brainchild of Julie
and you'll always find a warm welcome over at her place. 
 Not to mention entertaining posts about a varied list of topics.
Go on over, stop by and say hello.

I love this idea of a month in numbers :) I may do a post about this someday!

I always enjoy your month by number layouts & recap.

Nice to know that scrapbooking helps in some way :). And you've been a prolific scrapper and Instagrammer ... I love how each of your PL cards is so unique in design.

I like 'less sad'. Less sad is a only good thing. It's nice to know that you are feeling less sadness when you create. No wonder you made so many pages / took so many photos / spread your creativity with so many [again - thank you so much for my lovely card which is now sitting above my desk].

Your month had a certain balance to it: sadness alleviated by creativity / clearing away physical items and filling their space with photographs and memories documented.

I'm disappointed in your silver sandals though. Silver shoes [my favourite] have no right giving you blisters! They're supposed to make you feel fabulous [I blame the pair I had when I was about 6 that I wore with my princess/fairy costumes ... clearly they made an impression].

Wishing you a gentle May Ruth, with more sunshine to burn off a few more little beads of sadness.

I love this page, and like others, am so impressed with the number of scrapbook pages you've completed!

Yep: I hope you get those silver shoes broken in because I'm sure life is the tiniest bit better when you are wearing them.
