I tried something different today. I scanned a few of my scrapbook pages and decided to show you.
(journaling reads - every night as we head off to bed. Matt tucks his hand in my back waist pant and says "his is how elephants do it")
I've been scrapping for about 8 years. Now that Violet is in the picture, I have ALOT more to scrap about and tell stories.
Many people think because we don't have kids, dot, dot dot....fill in the blank. (why scrapbook)
(journaling reads - MOOD! Matt gets in touch with his feminine side @ MOOD in NYC. He loves watching Project Runway. I watch his sports. He watches Project Runway for me! 10/15/11)
I sometimes felt that way. I scrap about all kinds of stuff and thought...who the heck is going to read this? I force my family to leave thru the pages at Christmas....this year I forgot to bring the books.
Another reason I put memories to paper.........In case I can't remember what a Freaking AWESOME life I have and have had!
I feel bad about who cleans out my house when I die. I don't want them to feel bad about throwing this stuff out! I've changed that thought to "who cares". I love the paper, stickers, and stamps and I'm using them with WILD abandon!
Because I have alittle bit of a creative side, I wanted to share. I already love to take pictures and this year I am determined to understand the elusive 'aperture' setting. God love the internet, I can take classes, read blogs, chat with people almost about anything.
Heck, Today I taught myself how to scan and stitch.....these pages are 12x12 and my scanner is not. So I learned something new today! YEY!

So this year I am going to show alittle of my pages and cards because it makes me happy. I hope you'll continue to swing by and see blogs about Violet Mae and whatever else we want to share. I know I'll be scrapping about Violet too! After all she's my portable furbaby. My kitties are not so portable LOL! But I love them just the same.
So off to a new year and new adventures and new sharing.
(journaling reads - Nov 2011, Its funny, we don't have kids but we have a family. Violet and the kitties are so much a part of daily life. It makes our lives fun, festive and fabulous.)
