I thought it was about time I did a quick update, I've been good, SO good - I'm hardly coming online at all lately, instead I've actually been scrapping, catching up on deadlines, scrapping for myself, trying to teach Bella her words with flash cards, cooking more goodies that I seriously shouldn't be eating, painting the passage (oops missed some that needs fixing), and thinking about what I want to do with my life. Sounds serious - no, it's not really.
A friend of the family passed away over Easter, a beautiful and kind soul, so sudden and it brought such sadness especially to my sister and her family. I do this all the time, not sure why, but I think ahead of those last moments before I die - I think about what might be going through my head, looking back over my life, what has been most important to me, why I'm here, all that. I think about little things like how I seriously won't be worrying about whether the house was completely tidy all my life, but mostly I think that what will be important to me is whether I've loved and cared for James, Bella and my family as well as I could. I know I want to spend more time with my Mum and family. I don't do this enough, I try to but we always seem to be busy which makes me crabby, I want a happy medium and I'm not sure how to cram it all in there. I want to make more of an effort with just hanging out together. We went camping at Easter with some of my family, yes it was cold, but it just opened my eyes that we have to do this more, family is really important to me and at the moment I'm not working on this enough.
Anyhow....LOL..here's a fun poppet layout that I did for Tarisota for Tarisota Talk - SO fun, James and Bella love this page, it's my best page ever according to them both.
Here's another one from the new For Keeps magazine - not sure what happened when my layout went to photography for the issue, but something went severly wrong and the framed photo ended up over the other photo, lol.
