I am addicted and it’s all my own fault. I discovered Facebook.
Need I say more?
I put it off for a long time because I was out of contact with my family for such a long time – now we are back in tentative contact again and this seems to be the way to keep in touch with everyone these days. It’s answered a lot of questions for me actually. There are some students that you teach that really get under your skin and I’ve been able to see what a few of them have been up to since I left their school. I really do like to see my “kids” doing well, being happy and having a good life.
It’s funny that I have not looked up anyone that I went to school with myself. Maybe we’re just a bunch of old farts who couldn’t care less about each other! LOL
Well, speaking of being an old fart, guess who turns 35 on Monday? Moi.
I don’t know why, but I am having a bit of trouble with turning 35. That’s a bit too close to 40. I should be an ADULT now, right? I should be mature and know everything about life and banking and trivia and music and all that sort of stuff. Instead I realise that I know squat! I have had my head in the kid’s sandpit for 7 years and I am only just emerging and realising how many people have been having marvellous lives without me.
So this week I am a bit “over” everything. A bit over being a parent. A bit over being a wife. A bit over being a scrapbooker. A bit over people in general. I’ll get over it. But I wish it was quick!
So, scrapping wise, there are a few things to share with you all this week. I have finished the first Product Challenge for Scrapbooking Memories, and now I have been asked to complete another one. It’s nice to be asked. But I wonder if they are asking me because I didn’t make the Master’s List and yet they still want my work in the mag? Do I care about the Masters? YEP. I have to admit that I do. Will it make me a better scrapper? NOPE. But I still want it. I don’t think I’ve won it, but there are a few weeks left before the mag issue comes out and I can still hope. I just have to accept that it is only a competition, and that, outside of scrapbooking, NO-ONE will have even heard of the Masters. That puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
So this week’s tip was about using acetate to create your own, custom acetate frames to overlay your photos with. Here are some examples:
And here are some Lo’s that I can share with you this week:
“A Moment in Time” – took the kiddos to a park to take some pics of them under the Jacaranda trees.
“Always and Forever”
“Live for Today – Friday Night Live at Embellished”
“You are so Beautiful”
“Being a Mother”
“Family” Week 16 Tips and Techniques Lesson
and my fave for this week –
So, for a not so busy week, it certainly looks like I’ve done some stuff, hasn’t it? LOL
You all have a fabulous weekend and I’ll catch up with you either on Facebook or on Embellished or in Cyberspace somewhere!
