Thursday September 29

My computer is driving me crazy. Seriously crazy. In the last couple of months, it has run slower and slower. I'd like to think that it's because so much wisdom is stored in it's little mega-thingys, but I think the real reason is that in our consumable society, it was not built to last. Of course the technology in it is probably last century but hey.. so am I!

I've completed a couple of layouts lately. You'd think I'd be more prolific with the scrapbooking now that my room is more or less organized, wouldn't you? Well, if you think that, you'd be wrong! I have many layouts in my head that I'm dying to get down on paper. The truth is though that I just don't have the energy to even sit in there some days. This article describes the exact way I feel about things in a way that I've never been able to. I hope you'll take a few minutes and read it if you want to understand not only me, but people in your life who deal with chronic hidden illnesses on a day-to-day basis.

OK enough of that. This blog is about my scrapping and perhaps my photography as well. My little Murphy graduated from his beginner level agility class the other night. I am sure that the instructor keeps passing him because she gets such a kick out of the little social butterfly. He's the class clown and always wants to be where any action is.

And without further adieu, here is the first of my recent layouts. A collage from last year's big trek to Saskatchewan.

And here is my favourite day this summer. 

That's all for now!

Friday September 23

Well you would think that organizing my scraproom has taken over my life. If this is what you're thinking, you're not far wrong! I've been so busy organizing that I have not been "doing". Ugh.  Yesterday I decided that I could wait no longer. I unloaded and put away the bag I'd packed to go scrapping with the girls last Saturday and found the layout I'd started. I was compelled to finish it and LOVE how it turned out. I should actually finish all the layouts from summer 2010. I'm sure there are a few beauties left to discover.

I have been actually working in my scraproom, there just isn't a lot to show for it! Actually I ripped apart the big closet and got some new shelving and this morning actually labelled things. :-)

In between those fun little activities (that are taking way more time than I would like to admit) I've worked on a few layouts and planned a few more. Here's a small sample of what I've been doing lately.
