My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Keeping me sane

blogged by me domestic goddess On 11/13/2006 11:14:00 PM
Today has been one of those days, where phone calls from friends and hugs from my girls has kept me sane. Lots of lovely emails and posts to remind me its OK to still be sad, and that "afterlife" I had hoped for is there. It is so re assuring.

Last night was Pencil Lines week 7 and sketch layout 6 was uploaded by the so very talented Carole Janson, the queen of 3 dimensional work. this was my take on the sketch. I am kinda liking this circle larky!! Its hard bloomin work though, but worth it.
Are you still doing the sketches? It is such good fun and keeps me inspired and motivated. I have scrapped more than 1 photo, and am loving it!! I have worked with circles, and loving it!!! and Ali Edwards emails me, and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!

So you fancy another Scrapping Angels retreat next year?? The teachers are finalised, the classes are being worked on, and I am just finalising costs and maybes starting on the Friday afternoon for all you die hard scrappers. Make a note in your diary for the 27th-29th April at Wyboston in Cambridgeshire. Feel free to email me your interest as quite a few of you have already started doing:)
And don't forget we have a festive workshop on December 3rd for all those last minute gift ideas.

Go check out the site for page kit 9. My favourite line by far from Basic Grey.
I am off to finish packing orders and off to bed with a new book tonight. Any reading recommendations for me? I have just finished the Dave Pelzer trio logy so am probably looking for a lighter read.

    I'm so sorry you're still feeling down, i can totally relate to where you are right now. It is tough!! but it's great you have such a strong support network of friends and immediate family.

    Anyway- a book! I'm a literature student, so have worked my way through a fair few! Um- anything by Douglas Coupland- Girlfriend in a Coma is great- (better than it sounds)
