Enough raining already.
I'm just sayin'.
My view out my office window. Yes the new scraproom has been named 'the office' so far. Perhaps because noone want's to claim ownership... we all spend time here... it's a 5 person office...
And yes, I know there are people a lot worse off than me. A lot wetter. Without power for the past 3 or 4 days. Personally I'm being selfish and just asking for some sun for a few days straight. I feel serious vitamin D deficiencies that will only be fixed by large amounts of sun, lollies or american crafts thickers.
So I've been a little delayed with my blogging... I had this new theory. I decided to scrap assignments during the day, be done by the time the kids got home from school and attend to computer stuff at night. Which is kind of crazy theory because by the time I do all the organising and other stuff that is involved with what I do, probably 60% of my work is sitting at this computer writing instructions, emailing with people, typing the Queen blog, and all the other random stuff.
So the theory was blown apart on day one. And now it's 3.30pm and I haven't even started the assignment I need to do today.
I'm going to try again starting tomorrow.
Scrapbooking - Here is a layout I did for the latest dare at No 8 Wired Dares. It was their 50th challenge and it involved inspiration from a page in magazine and the winter theme. Here is my take. (BAD pic here... bad light... I took this pic at night! It looks way better IRL)
Again, hand journaling. I see it and am all of a sudden releived to have found my printer again!
I got a comment from Kylie Tout the other day, and I quite often visit blogs of those that comment, especially if it happens I'm eating a meal and reading the internet when the comment comes through. You know, that new thing I have where I'm trying not to go on the computer during the day.... Kylie's is a favourite because she has great songs on there.. I'll leave them to play for a bit. Anyhoooooooo Kylie mentioned she had done a layout for the Mojo Holder Blog based around one of my all time favourite layouts of mine - Check it out here, check out the mojo holder's DT layouts while you are there - all very cool!
Also coming up over the weekend is the Stampin' Up! release of the new mini spring catalog. I'm playign with some stuff and will be posting projects and asking for comments to win a few things out of the mini catalog.
First though, kiddies homework... then knuckle down to a yummy corned beef for dinner and Tuesday is my fav TV night. Because I can see the TV from my scraproom now. My best friend right through early high school (Janine) her hubby is on the Rich List tonight. I saw Dave on the shorts last night - no hiding it from us, Dave! Looking forward to seeing that, along with Sensing Murder.
oh - edited to add - please vivist this post on the Aussie Scrap Source blog, it has the entries for the first category in the Whose Layout is it Anyway thing that we have going on.... it's fun and the second challenge is here - everyday, distressed, Scenic Route or SEI, layers, lots of photos... sounds like me... join in the challenge if you can, there are prizes up for grabs!
