This month we have a fantastic scrapper all the way from Sweden!
Please welcome sweet & wonderful:
*I am currently obsessed with Lenka's cd with the same name. It makes me happy and constantly plays on my Spotify. :)
* Some day, DH and I dream of selling most everything we own and get a big house boat instead. We're just gonna travel around the world and experience it bit by bit. (We'll bring our trusty tandem bike...!) Wanna come for a coffee at the deck?! :D
* Just recently, I celebrated five years as a non-smoker. I owe it all to Allen Carr and his amazing book "Easy Way to Stop Smoking".
* I'm a nerd. Bigtime. And I'm proud of it.
* A month ago, gave up all sorts of sweets and I don't miss them one bit. On the contrary: I feel better than ever. Now I just need to get some kind of exercise routine too...!! ;)
I don't think I can single one out! I had a very happy childhood with the best parents in the world! However, one that stands out was the time I finally talked my parents into letting me get a budgerigar, and we went to pick one out. I fell in love with the only male one... He was yellow and green and very cute! Sort of puffy - his feathers were always standing up, very merrily! I remember the car ride home with the tiny box in my lap, and the feeling of warmth, happiness and proudness. I named him Nickie and he was just adorable. I loved him dearly, and he turned into the funniest, most loving pet ever. I still miss him.
Well - I've always embellished my photoalbums with memorabilia and fun notes... However, I never knew it was a hobby and an artform until I found some fun papers online and had to Google the term "scrapbooking"... This was in late December 2006 and I was instantly thrilled! I thought it'd be a perfect way for me to express my creativity through the artforms I love most: photography, writing and turning things into art. It was. I was hooked right away!
Distressing and inking!! I'm deeply, madly, truly in love with shabbifying stuff. (And yes, I'm aware that it's not a word.) However, I also enjoy challenging myself to NOT ink & distress everything, all the time. I succeed... every now and then. But I'm usually more happy with the things I make in my "usual style". For a show: Bones. Gotta love them all!!
For a song: Meghan's Song by Matthew Perryman Jones. If you haven't heard of him - you need to. He's brilliant!!
Reading! I'm such a book worm!! :D
Zarah is such a wonderful scrapper, I absolutely love her layering and "shabby chic" feel she brings to each project. I am so glad she shared her talents with us! THANK you Zarah you are such an inspiration!
