|scrapped at the church crop today. a little group i call “scrap-n-chat”.
of course, it involved drinking a starbucks while we scrapped!
i’ve been wanting to scrap this picture of lisa & i at starbucks.
appropriate title: “venti-sized friendship”
(for those of you that don’t drink starbucks, gasp, a venti=large)
looking forward to a great family weekend…hopefully….a relaxing weekend!
|still getting used to my new camera. just taking basic pix.
decided to get out some scrapbooks and take pictures of past layouts.
some of them may be familiar, or not.
it’s nice to look back and remember times / events.
guess that’s why i love scrapbooking so much.
so, my hubby bought me a new camera for my bday.
(he’s been nagging me to actually use it.)
when i receive a gift, especially something large or detailed, i wait.
i don’t use it right away.
i will. but, in my own time. when i’m comfortable. when i’m ready. and i don’t want “people” watching me use it for the first time, or telling me how to do it. (ha) (stubborn?? me??)
i take baby steps.
the first day, i watched one of the dvd’s that came with it. (yes, i am one of THOSE people).
the second day, i took stuff out of the boxes, looked at it all, and charged the battery.
TODAY, i turned it on and took a picture. lol.
using the photo that i took of us on my bday, (with my phone),
i scrapped a layout today…..
so, i thought it would be my first “subject”.
the pictures are only taken on automatic. i only adjusted the flash.
|ok. new topic.
i love this tool!
i bought my first “distresser tool” last night.
as you can see on the layout, i used it alot!!!!
|another new tool, these wonderful tweezers.
they work perfectly picking up these adorable little pearl embellishments.
well, that’s all. hopefully, as i figure out this camera, (in my own time), the quality will improve!!
i’m still here.
kind of been in a blogging rut lately.
i have been scrappin’ a little here & there over the last few days.
finally had a chance to play with my new stamps from papertrey ink, (whom i love!!)
this snail is so cute. he’s from the forest friends set.
hopefully i will get a few more done and i can post them later.
|exciting new things are ‘in the making’ for scrapsinbloom…
this is a sneak peak at some new projects that i am currently working on.
scrapsinbloom may be expanding their blooms a little!!!
many more ideas floating around in my head….
just need to focus & discipline myself to keep on working at it!
|whew! they are out in droves today!
spent most of the day Christmas shopping…
i really don’t mind the crowds. i’ve always loved this time of year….the crowds don’t bother me.
20 years ago, i used to work retail at toys-r-us and i looooved this time of year! it was sooo busy!
the hustle & bustle of the crowds. the Christmas music playing in the stores.
i love it.
also made some handmade gift tags.
here’s a glance (below).
still working on my december daily. you can see it here.
|cold noses, warm hearts!
a little card that i made this morning… (nope, not a Christmas card…still haven’t started…)
anyways, i guess our rain is expected to turn to ice, sleet & snow later this afternoon.
hope your monday is warm & cozy!
