rambling...

everyday i'm shuffling... so yep..thats about me at the moment.. just Shufflin..think i want to run but not sure..?? do you ever feel that way when your just shufflin through and just accepting things as they are.. ?? or as they should be?? and just well... staying the same.. i have just watched 500 days of summer.. i really liked it.. but got me to thinking.. am i shuffling,, ????

and to add to that.. OMG if you've seen the show you will understand that he has this HUGE wall of chalkboard.. I WANT THAT.. i love drawing on chalkboard.. if you make a mistake you just erase it an start again.. simple.. draw, write . ERASE.....

or maybe instead of shufflin i need to erase.. nope .. never look back in regret..so i'm not erasing..
i think starting soon.. LOL.. real soon... hopefully.. i'll start shufflin alittle quicker..
starting this weekend.. i'm off out.. and instead of caring if someone sees me havin a good time i'm goin to go out and have a darn tootin fantastic time..and enjoy those who enjoy being around me.. sometimes.. i think i THINK way too much.. you see my head rarely stops.. i just think.. about everything.. what will they say, how will i feel, is that the right thing to do.. usually i'm too busy thinking about others and how they are that i forget me..
so i might just have to shuffle along......

dont forget PLAY it LOUD... lol.
so thats enough of me rambling.. sometimes i just have to say what is in my head..and well this is MY blog afterall..and i am sure that there is only a few peeps who actually read this..so sorry..but i AM okay... and i will be back creatively soon..
thanks again...

woohooo Lou...

Well I'm BAck from the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo and i must say i was alittle disappointed this year.. but ONLY in the products avaliable.. SeriOUsly.. i had been hanging off for the last month on getting any NEW pp so i could touch and feel it at the expo.. sounds reasonable..yeah.. well NOT.. there was NO NEW pattern paper anywhere.. the couple of stands that had pp it was all old..like 4 releases old.. CRAP..well i hear you.. so instead i got INK, glimmermist, Masks etc.. my glimmermist now stands at 16 bottle.. wow.. crap didnt realise it was that much..and not all was from the weekend..but seriously when there is 3 for $25 how could you pass that UP...
andyho.. as i went ON and ON and ON about before the expo was the fact that a SUPER amazing Friend {who i still owe} BROUGHT lil ole me a ticket to Louise Nelson "my wish" class... and to say that i LOVED it was an understatement... i wowzeroonied it...not just the end product but the techniques.. i was like.. DEERRRRR of course IDIOT.. seriously.. it was superb..loved it and no wonder because she is an AMAZING lady.....
so without further ado.. i present my version..
"My Only Wish"
scrapbooking,june 2011,expo,louise nelson

so there you have it.. ONE Louise Nelson masterpiece.. oh i changed hers... lol.. i added a second photo on the right..and then when i was finishing added the green glimmer to the stalks as well..and also some Glitter Glass on the stems instead of stars...yay.. i love it..so Serenity...and LOVED getting my hands dirty and STICKY..was awesome.. so now i have some inspiration to PLAY..woohoo.... {{I HOPE i did Lou's masterpiece justice...eekk}

Belinda gave me "Breaking Dawn" pn Saturday on the way down..and which i am sad to say i have almost finished.. about 3/4 the way through.. i know and its only Monday arvo. it just seems to be so well written i suppose.. i just start reading it and just keep on reading it..just cant put it down..and NOW that is something that i never EVER thought i'd say..but anyho.it happens...


and i even got to help with Angella and the other Scrapmatters with her class on Sunday,,that was fun...

Sharmaine, Kim E, Cathy C, Nicole P, Crystal G, Renee D, Sonia T, Annette E, Jess Mack and Elise for the first time on Saturday and YAY its awesome to finally put a proper face and voice to the peeps that i talk to often in this Vertual world. {{i hope i didnt forget anyone..eek.. i hope not.....} anyho. thanks for a great weekend..pity Belinda was ill but oh well.. and LOOKING forward to a more planned and superbly FUN weekend Next year..
