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…

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…
