Pause in 2014 {August}

For my August project, it isn't at all crafty, but instead is for a good cause. I'm going to be volunteering with an organization that provides books and educational materials to schools, shelters, and other local facilities. I have committed to August, but hope to extend that through at least the end of the year.

Volunteering was something that when I chose my word for the year I hoped I'd be able to accomplish. It may be August already, but better late than never! Hmm, maybe I should pick up some October Afternoon {Public Library} in order to scrapbook this...

Even if you aren't focusing on a word for the year, be sure to take time to stop and smell the roses! Have a lovely weekend and I'll be back next week with a layout using new shop flair!


  1. Public Library is definitely in order to document your volunteering pursuit! :) Sounds like a wonderful volunteer organization. Love the roses!!!

  2. Beautiful picture Elise and so kind of you to volunteer. It's a win situation. You feel good about helping and the people receiving your help feel good having your support.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful charity! & I agree it is never too late to volunteer! Have fun!

  4. I think Public Library will be perfect to scrap your volunteer work, Elise. Good for you for following through on your word and helping out a worthy organization. They're lucky to have your help. :)

  5. Sounds like a great cause to volunteer with.
    Your photo is so so pretty.

  6. I absolutely love how you have focused on your word this year!
    Very inspirational :)


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment, I truly appreciate all your kind words!
