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!


  1. I`m glad that you got some satisfaction out of that article, and most importantly those around you will get it one day. As for Murphy, he sure has grown since I last saw him! and I`m curious how you did the journaling on your 12x12.....

  2. Hi Mom! Great layouts. Murph Burph looks so big now! And I loved the journaling on the Sask layout. It brought back great memories... like how you *ahem* were there over my 20th birthday ;). Haha, love you lots! You have a great eye for pattern and balance.
