Happy, wise words...

... for a happy Wednesday, which I thought was Tuesday (may have had something to do with the fact that I posted a Monday message yesterday!).

On my desk Monday...

...a big m.e.s.s

Trying... to finish up my "nesting" process which had been rather suddenly interrupted... also a LOT of Spring cleaning which didn't happen and, well, we're pretty much into Summer here...

Not a whole heap of creative stuff happening here until I can have a CLEAN desk - it's my punishment - or should I say goal - can't play until the room is tidy.

Meanwhile I have been downloading some new photos from the weekend. 103 new photos in 3 days. Not all of them good (some not at all), but I'm trying and plan on playing some more until I feel I can almost get it right more often than not (plus I have the cutest subject on which to practice). I might even share one day, but in the meantime go and check here - photo not taken by me :)

I think I feel some encouragement coming on too... found this and this and this today. All so inspiring.

Got to clean some more!

Inspired by...

While unpacking these the "product description" caught my eye:

you should always take time to smell the flowers...
and touch them...and maybe pick them -

Did you know that packaging can inspire too? Not just colour combos or the fact that the actual packaging can be re-purposed? How about a page title idea or even a spot of journaling?

If you're scrapbooking this weekend, hope this inspires you to add a cute note to your flowery layout... or read a few packages and see what sparks your inspiration!

Happy weekend!

Oh... and P.S. thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday - I love being so electronically connected - phone calls, emails, sms's, blog comments, face book chats, Skye notes... and of course the good old fashioned card in the post!

It has been....


Can't believe 20 days can go by so quickly. I'm busy with some updates from all the celebrations. Just one more festivity (tomorrow) and then that's October for me.

Time for me to put together some new ideas again to cure the itchy fingers I get while seeing others play with paper! I'm going to be putting out some of my older class layouts and mini books and projects again too. So if you're interested in these kits, let me know, there are only a limited amount available.

I need to get back to my scheduled blogging too... yes, I'll find normality again (I think/hope). age old's Wednesday's Wise Words

A sprinkle of happiness

It's October, another new month! And I have loads to celebrate.

This month...
I get to welcome my friend all the way from Arizona,
I get to host a Polka Dot Party with 110 scrapbookers,
I get to remember a one year friendship anniversary,
I get to celebrate my birthday,
and this great month started off with a sprinkling of goodness from the wonderful Stacy Julian. Check out her stunning new website and take a little peek here too.

Here's to a wonderfully busy month...
