Such Prettiness

Hi there girls

You know I’m always going on and on {ad nauseum} about journaling? Well I was chatting to Janine the other day and she put is so succinctly. She said – “the photos are the heart of your page but the journaling is the soul”. I could not possibly have put it better myself. So there, think about that next time you do a page with no soul.

This week’s page is a layout {Such Prettiness} by Mandy from Crafts From Our Heart and is a very pretty girly page using lovely papers from Art From The Heart (so much of heartiness going on!).
Picture requirements:
8 x [8.5 x 8.5]
1 jumbo portrait or landscape
Then there is a “secret pocket” where you could add an additional 5 x [6.5 x 6.5] pics or a combination of private journaling and pics.
Now fear not if you only have testosterone fuelled stinky boys or wish to do a page on your bonsai – we can always McGyver the paper to fit the theme.

Just a reminder: I’m open tomorrow {Saturday} if you feel like scrapping or just popping in for a cuppa.
I’m afraid next week’s evening class will be on Thursday 28th at 18h00 and not Tuesday as my not-to-be-missed bookclub has been moved. Do pop along for a little scrappy time. I’m afraid I’ve had to ban wine glasses from the table as some ham fisted moron has TWICE now spilled both red and white wine over some poor unsuspecting crafters page (that moron being me of course).
Next Thursday I have a vitally important meeting to attend at 12h00 so if you’re scrapping, could you come a leeetle earlier so we can finish earlier? I’d be so grateful. (Actually, I’m bound to be caught out so let me confess that the “important meeting” is a Sex and the City lunch at Mohemia. Sue me)

The new Cosmo Cricket papers have arrived – bright and cheerful they are too. Then also just arrived: tote bags (oh yes!), metal rulers (3 sizes), self healing mats, bamboo folders (stunning price), one hole punches, glitter, buttons and flowers. And the most noo noo 6x6 paper packs absolutely perfect for card making (a steal @ R32.00 for 50 pages!).

A very happy birthday to Miz Linda Hutton who {I do SO hate to use the f-word in a family newsletter} turns FORTY on Friday! Fabulous at Forty I might add. Have a great day Linda.

Other than that, not much to report.
Have a splendid weekend, whether you’re supporting Animal Anti Cruelty or CANSA (or neither).
Ciao for now

I’ll end with a few things we learn as we trundle through life (I totally agree with 3. and disagree with 11!)

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people tomake a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. ! Pay attention. It never fails.)

14. Your friends love you anyway.

15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
