Meanwhile, in BlogUniversity…

Today’s challenge is to write a post about something that inspired us while re-working our “about me” pages.  Well… not that this blog is meant to be humorous, but when forced to think about myself, the first thing that comes to mind is just a good pile of silly.  So I was inspired to write more about the “silly” in my life.

And by write, I really mean show.  So this post might be cheating because I’m doing more of a visual post then a well thought out lots of words post…  but I like visual.

If you’re my facebook friend, this is the usual stuff I post… I try not to get too personal on facebook… because well you know… conspiracy and world domination and that sorta thing.   No, I will not tell you all the cities I’ve lived in before you could track it through my photos!!

So that’s Norma up there is the fab wig.  She was getting ready for her date with the pile of clothes on the laundry room floor.

This next pic is a bit of a fib because it’s not my dog.  It lives on my sister’s parents-in-law’s farm.  And by golly, I’ve never seen a do like that on a dog before in my life.  It begged to be photographed and pointed out!

And here we have me shopping myself into a Natalie Dee pic.  My goto gal for a quick pick me up laugh.  I give her full credit for this work.  Please visit:  Nataliedee.com

This pic was in response to this frog takeover that was happening at my house.  We’d get home at night and they were EVERYWHERE!  It was nutty.  I hope it happens again.  They were so small and cute!  Who doesn’t love FROGS!  KERMIT PEOPLE!

So Kevin doesn’t share my enthusiasm for Sprinkles.  End of story.

That’s all the pics I could find right now due to my spectacular fall down the stairs yesterday while carrying a decorative bin and my hard drive full of pics.  I bounced on a few steps.  The hard drive didn’t “bounce” as well as I.  It lost some pieces.  Cracked itself up if you will.  I shouldn’t even add this, but that was not my first time falling while carrying it! So I was already having to hold the usb cable onto it to keep it from falling out while I retrieved files from it.  So this time… I haven’t been successful yet as to find a way to get it to work again.  May need professional help…

Scrapbook Process- 8×10 photo

In crafts, Madebyfitty, photo, Photography, scrapbooking on April 22, 2014 at 12:57 am

So the pile of photos from the last couple months are now holding a grudge because I laid down these before them… Sometimes, you just really get inspired by a certain collection of pics and you can’t help it.

It’s been a while since I used a big photo. It’s funny how your style changes. A year or so ago, I was all about big photos and two page layouts. Now, I like small photos and one focal page. My pattern these days is a 12×12 of my fav pic, and a projectlife style spread for the details on the facing side. Like this:

The produce paper is from the Studio Calico April kit… but I really can’t say what else is… I was in organizing mode and just mixed the kit into my stash when I got it…

So I actually made a mistake when I was sewing this picture onto the background.. I’ve never met a sewing machine that liked to sew through photo paper… some less than others… so sometimes you get a little bubbling because the photo paper sticks a bit. (especially super glossy paper)

So I decided to cut along the sewn line on top of the photo and use it as a pocket for layering stuff. And this was just one of those times that a mistake ended up to be my favorite thing about a project.
And here’s the blow by blow for any craftypants peeps that are interested!

 

 

And remember, Happiness is Homemade!

Photo share: All dressed up and goin’ nowhere

Some of you have little girls.  And some of you have little GIRLS!  I never in a million years thought I would have such a little girly girliest of the girls girl.  There is nothing TOM or BOY about it.  It’s a dress everyday no matter what we’re doing.  Like today for instance…

My mom bought this Barbie Jeep from a yard sale last summer, but it didn’t have a battery. She kept it at her house but now that she’s moving, we inherited it. It doesn’t seem to bother Eleanor in the least that it doesn’t go anywhere, she still decided to get dressed and go for a “ride”.

And a bonus feature is the car phone. Not sure how I feel about this… Are we just training our kids to use the phone while they drive? Oh who am I kidding… they’ll have it hard wired to their hands free brains by the time she gets her license.

And I’m afraid Norma gets to ride shotgun and listen to the “pretend” music that Eleanor is singing at the top of her lungs with whether she likes it or not.

I’m pretty lucky that this kid can entertain herself anywhere, anytime, with anything… As long as she has access to her dress collection, she’s good. I could really learn from her. Every time I’m stressed about life… I could probably just put on my party dress and dance away the blues.

I do plan on getting a battery for that car before summer… we’ll see.
