Friends in a JIFFY
The past few weeks i had a rediscovery about scrap booking. I started following a few blogs a while back, but never left any comments, because I thought i do not know these people, love what they are doing though. Recently i started to leave some comments, started my own blog too and guess what? I am starting to make new friends all over the world, I still speak to myself on my blog, but now I know it will get better.
I hardly ever attend classes, for different reasons, money wise it is sometimes not worth it, other times, I don't like the specific style of the teacher and then I do not always have the time, so I scrap by myself most of the times.
So, I discovered this blog, called SCRAP ADDICT, hi Helen, I am so glad I met this lady, also did not know her, but in a blink she made me part of what she enjoys doing and that is scrap booking. She shares what she does and knows with everybody!! Also, she designs for a shop in Durban. Thank You Helen.
Then there is another lady, she actually inspired me to really take control of organizing. . . her name is Laura Vegas, from California, designer for Making Memories, published in many magazines, does very pretty layouts,thanks Laura:)
What involves my scrap booking is that I used to wreck my brain to get a layout together, took me forever, I don't like things to look the same every time, that is also something of the past, I NEVER made use of sketches and what a blessing, I can do 2-3 layouts a day now and actually feel unstoppable, just want to carry on and on., just by following a few drawings on paper and my mind can't stop thinking now, so i think I really had a scrapper's block, and a few things and people changed that for me in a very short time.
I also signed up for a online class, through the blog of Helen, looks great over at Two Peas in a Bucket:)
On another note, it is still very cold here, had rain over the weekend and they say another cold front is coming our way this weekend, but it is RUGBY again!! So I will snuggle up in front of the TV with a few snacks to stay warm. But I will talk to you before that. . .
Have a nice Day!!
