On Being a Perfectionist

It stands to reason that scrapbooking and an overwhelming need to have everything be "just so," just don't mix... Yet, here I am, it's 10:00 at night and I'm coming to grips with an ever so slight laminating glitch on something that in a day's time my two-year old boys will not even notice. They're going to be squealing with joy because they have a portable picture book of their favorite "Things That Go" - the trash trucks and motorcycles that we look for every day on the way to school.

Scrapbooking isn't about being right, perfect or precise, it's about the person that benefits from it being perfectly happy that you made them something.
