Hello bloggy friends! Just popping in to say hello! I have nothing scrappy to share as I seem to have lost my mojo this week. :( So very sad and somewhat alarming because this usually doesn't happen in my scrappy life. Could it be that I over scrapped last week? I never thought that there was such a thing. hee hee Maybe it is "scrapbook overstimulation"! Did I save too many sketches to do, LO's to scraplift, magazine clippings to inspire me? Did I post too many comments, view too many new paperlines, search for too many new challenge sites and lose too much sleep to scrappy thoughts? I think I have a diagnosis here!!!! LOL
I do have two pieces of news to share. First off, my sister Susan has finally started a scrappy blog! I am so very excited that my hounding has payed off. Pesty little sister, ya that's me! ;) You can find her first post here. Pop over and say hello if you have a chance! :)
Secondly, I wanted to share the title of a book that I just finished reading. See, something good has come of my scrapping break, I actually read a book. I really did read before I entered the cyber world of scrapping about two years ago.
So, it is called "Room". It is by a Canadian author, Emma Donoghue.
I don't want to say too much or give anything away but, it is written from the perspective of a 5 year old boy. A sad subject but a story of the strength of the human spirit and our instinct to survive. It is a hard book to put down and after I finished it, the story keeps popping back into my mind.
Lastly, I am toying with the idea of starting to share some vintage clipart periodically. I could spend hours on these sites, just looking through these wonderful images from long ago. Illustrations from children's books and old advertisements are some of my favourites. I think I need to invest in a good printer so I can take advantage of some of this amazing and free stuff on my LO's. I'll leave you with this.
Happy Scrapping!! Jen
