So. This weekend, in addition to having visits & going out (see below) I've also been purging bigtime at home (or well, at least I think so). With all the DT-stuff that has arrived lately plus the class-stuff that's started to arrive it just suddenly felt so wrong to have so much of like 3+ years worth of old stuff just....lying around.....being unloved....neglected....ignored.....unused...growing old...older day by day...it started to feel...not good...at all. :( (yes I belong to the category of collector-scrappers thinking I'll certainly need this or that piece some day...and no way I'll use the last of this or that cause they're waiting for the Perfect Project.)
Sorted mostly paper, but also some embellishments and stuff and sold off quite a bit now. It feels better now knowing that most of the papers that I once loved (or well, thought would be useful to have&keep around) should have found better homes by now...what's old to me might be new&fresh to others no? :)
Materials used: Hambly Screenprints, Daisy D, Scrappers Choice, Maya Road charm, Fiskars scalloped scissors.
Kathrine arranged some fun stuff over at Minneriket this past weekend - yey! Gudrun did a very inspirational class on pyramid-cards/boxes and I just had to try...love this colorcombo - bronze and teal w/pinkpurple!! Even Tracie did a class for us and Anna was so kind and let us use the latest Pencil-Lines sketch.
Materials used: American Crafts, BamPop, Rose Moka
Speaking of Pencil-Lines - we're celebrating our 2 year anniversary and got the whole OLW team as our guests this week (well, we guested each others :) )! Don't miss out on this!! :D My layout is quite simple - it's about my late grandfather and how he kept learning new languages his whole life...accumulating to about 25 languages that he could read very well (as in submitting to magazines from Japan and reading the Bible in several different languages and stuff). He insisted on reading several different languages every day to keep them all fresh. He was an amazing person, incredibly knowledgeable and very careful on keeping up on track with what was going on in the society and the like... and I am very sorry I did not care to talk that much with him his last years as he struggled more and more with chronic illnesses and I was more interested in spending time with friends than with sick grandparents..well. Bygones. I guess.
Time for some promotional stuff! ;D
- Luxe Designs have a little countdown to Halloween - 13 ideas to Halloween (one idea a day) - plus offering several Halloween-kits for 13$ (well, at least two - I *think* there will be more to come?
