scrapbooking

scrapbooking is my art just like painters or fashion designers it all comes down to art. For my last photography class I had to take some artsy fartsy photos. OK so mine weren't that artsy and according to my teacher most of them were on the fartsy side. My nice Alica said to me this week end that art is subjective, who cares if anyone else likes it as long as you like that's what matters. After all your the one who is going to stare at your own art piece right? which led me to think about scrapbooking and the way I scrap. A long time ago I was told that I was "just a beginner" or another statement was" you have so much to learn", or my favorite was "as long as you like it". All somewhat stinging statements if you are really putting lots of effort into your page. Believe it or not that last one was my favorite "as long as you like it" that's right "as long as I like it". I should do each page to get approval from only one person "me". I should love my page because I have spent 5 bucks (sometimes more or less) on that page looking good. Not only is your money invested but time and labor (some people even sweat like me at the cancer crop putting together the contest page), and don't forget Love. If you are making a page for someone you are usually making it out of love, or for someone you love or about something you love. Scrapbookings key ingredient is love, it is centered there in your heart surrounded by the greatest gift LOVE. I love all of you dearly not (well you know) and love to scrap with all of you I'm so looking forward to retreat and good times. Blessings A

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
