A New Beginning.Well, today is the start of Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers course. I first saw this course advertised in Scrapbook Inspirations in August and e-mailed Shimelle about it then. So I am very keen to do the course and will try to blog most days for the next month. Prompts plop into my inbox each day and it will be up to me whether I do what they suggest or something else. There are three options for the course:-
Blogging without taking any photos of your own but using copywrite free ones of the internet.
Blogging with your own photos.
Blogging and making a page about your blog.
I am going to try for option 2, option 1 may be the way I go sometimes and option 3 would be my ideal option but this may only be achievable occasionally.
Today the prompt was to show your working space and a scrapbook page. I have chosen 'Essential Walking Gear' as this is my fave page at the moment.
So what else have I done? Yesterday, I discovered yet another of David's 'improvements' to the house. A hole about 30cm square and at least 1m deep, and where else would it be but in the lounge! It will eventually have a beam in to support the ceiling but at the moment, as you can see, it only has some sort of tool down it! Oh well, it is all in the name of progress.
I don't know if I have ever told you but David and I have been together for 25 years and out of all that time I have lived in a finished house for 7 months - yes 7 months not years but months! This is the second house we have renovated and so far this project has taken 17 years. I really appreciate all the work David puts in and most of the time don't mind the mess and upheaval.
Other than that, Donna and I sat with the girls and made the hair clips I showed you yesterday - here is one modelled by one of my girls and they all looked so sweet with them in.
I had better get back to doing David's invoices now as he will be back soon and will wonder why they're not ready to send out to the customers.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. I feel so much better today, I hope I have finally gotten on top of my cough.
2. Watching Murderland, once I have finished the invoices, is something I am really looking forward to.
3. I am truly blessed to have such a hard working husband who spends all his spare time rebuilding the cottage to make it a better place for me and Gracia.
