Hello Scrapbooking Blog and Internet Scrapbooking Friends!
I've missed you! One friend did tell me on Facebook that she wasn't worried about my absence here or on Facebook because she saw me on Pinterest and Instagram! It is true - and I can instagram and pin things from my cell phone while reclining on an ice pack. I had an injury a few months back that had me on the couch for about 2 months. And. Oh my goodness! Not being able to stand up for long periods of time has put a serious cramp in my scrapbooking style - and ability. And while I was in lots of pain I didn't really feel like doing much of anything at all. I am starting (knock on wood) to feel a little bit better and even got to the public pool 3 times this past week to do laps (because non-weight bearing exercise is my new thing). I am hoping that I can incorporate more sitting into my scrapbooking routine and hopefully feel overall better. As you may imagine, I've been itching to scrapbook and I have lots of ideas so hopefully I'll be back here on the blog posting all sorts of fun things.
So I used to love Facebook circa 2008 but lately? Not so much. It is hard to find my actual friends and feels like a big old ad. But occasionally I do find my friends and one of my old college friends recommended the new Paul Westerberg album 14 Stories and that led me down a rabbit hole of music I used to love but don't listen to enouch anymore. And I had these cute photos of my daughter dressed up like Madonna and even though I've scrapped these photos before, I used them for this page about how my daughter likes my girl pop music - and maybe I could just get my son into my old gritty punk rock - and I printed out a bunch of the old band names that I liked. This layout was fun to make and it makes me happy.
Supplies: American Crafts, Copic Markers, K&Company, Authentique, Bella Blvd., Me and My Big Ideas.
