Firstly I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on my word book.
You ladies are awesome. Every time you leave a comment it shows me that I made the right decision on doing this blog.
I didn't get any crafting in today, well I did tidy my desk off. Does that count?
So here I will share a layout I did a few years ago. The girls are fishing with their daddy. When they fish it is just for a photo shoot, LOL. Sorry honey.
I am a 2 page scrapbooker. I only seem to do 2 page spreads and they have to coordinate, and have symmetry to them. This is a very simple layout. I cut the strips of paper and weaved them at the corners. I matted the pictures on card stock. The chipboard pieces are covered with pattern paper.
I have always kept journals. I started in about grade 7. My one girlfriend had one, and I thought that it was so cool. I also thought she had a perfect life. She had the most beautiful bedroom, her curtains, bedspread and lamps all matched. She had a dresser with a huge mirror and shelves on either side. Plus she had her own bedroom. I had a few sleepovers at her house. I don't think she was ever was at my house. I lived in a trailer (oops sorry mobile home to be politically correct) and both my sister and brother and I shared a room.
Back to the journals (ya I get side tracked easily). I have about 6 journals of my life. My sister is just itching to read them. LOL.
I thought that this blog would be my journal as I seemed to stop writing in mine a few years ago. I love to do all kinds of crafts and thought that this is a perfect outlet to share with others.
I thought that I would try something different. In a lot of my journals I would post 3 things that I was happy or grateful for. Even on the bad days when sometimes it was breathing, or having a piece of chocolate. I would have to write down 3 things.
So I am going to try and have Thursdays as Thankful Thursdays. Pretty clever eh?
So here are my 5 things for the day.
1. Health of my family
3. Having my own place to craft.
4. Comments on my blog :)
What are you thankful for this Thursday.
