My intentions for this blog are fairly simplistic: mostly I would like to use this space as a means of encouraging myself to continue creating and growing by forcing myself to share my progress with anyone who may be interested. While I may share bits of my personal life, what I really want is to share my scrapbooking with all of the amazing bloggers already out there.


New Buttons...

I spent part of this morning crafting some new buttons; something that I have been meaning to get around to. Some are really cute (hello man and heart!*cough cough Lisa cough*) and some leave a little to be desired. But, a wise woman (Jilly) once said, "someone is going to like it somewhere". I'm still working on a few other ideas before I sell them at the store but I thought I'd put them "out there". Also, apologies for the crummy pictures... my camera has been less than cooperative, even post-coercive beating.


My Three-Legged Love

One of my nearest and dearest friends, Amanda, has recently adopted Lola, a beautiful boxer cross. Lola had some surgery complications early in life and, as a result, she has had her right front leg entirely removed. Sadly, after her surgery she became a resident of the veterinary school in Saskatoon where my smarty-pants Amanda is in the last year of her studies. Amanda and her beau fell in love with this gentle, loving creature and came to her rescue three months ago.
I had the pleasure of meeting Lola a few weeks ago and she makes me melt. She is AWESOME!!! (And can run like the wind I might add!) As her godmother, I simple had to do a page of her, especially when her auburn hair was the perfect thing for this week's staff kit at Treasured Memories. I simply love my "little three-legged wonder"!!!


Here goes nothin'

Well I suppose I am officially a blogger. I originally thought I should call this blog "The Ultimate Over-thinker", as both a parallel to my beautiful sister's blog and to pay homage to my severe disability in decision making, but it turns out that someone out there has a similar problem and got to the title first. And so I turned to one of the most delicious bands of all time - Death Cab for Cutie - for some inspiration and slightly altered one of their song titles. I think it is perfect for a number of reasons. (1) I am afflicted with a need to scrapbook everything orthogonally and I am now trying to break free of my straight line obsession (2) It's a nice mathematical concept and everyone loves math... oh wait... that's just me (3) Is there anything better than Death Cab lyrics? Not much!

And so I will leave you with a few shots of my most recent crooked scrapbooking adventures as tour guided by my talented little sister.
