I'm so far behind.....

Is anyone out there? Anyone come here anymore? I've been neglecting my blog because I'm behind on my layouts for All About You in 52....which I plan to catch up on this weekend! So here's another little video for you....I love watching this fast motion video...and the end product makes me want to make a paper bag album too!

I'll be back!

You in 52 - Week 6

Here's a fun video from Leah, Donna, and Johanna. All of their videos are fun, but looking through someone's old stash is really FUN! Hope you enjoy it!

I'll be finishing up last week's All About You in 52 ..a little late this week...can't wait to get started on the next one!

You in 52 - Week 5

Question for week 5:

Whose Life Have You Influenced Outside Your Immediate Family?

Wow, Debby’s Dares are a lot of work! My poor old brain can’t handle all this contemplation. I don’t even know where to start with this one. If anyone ever told me that I had an influence on their life….I’ve probably forgotten. I mean, I didn’t keep a list or anything like that, and I probably wasn’t a very good influence on anyone. I wasn’t even a good influence on myself.

But if I did, I hope I was there to lend a helping hand when you needed it. I hope I encouraged you to achieve your dreams, or just listened when you needed someone to listen. Maybe I made you laugh when you wanted to cry, or I just sat with you in silence. If I touched your life in some small way, I’m thankful. For my life has certainly been touched by you.

A personal note to you, Miss Debby

Here we are at week 5 of You in 52. I haven't scrapped anything else in 5 weeks and it feels good! I'm not worried about how my layout looks, or if this flower is better than that flower and oh, my, what would so-and-so think of this l/o? I'm not making a book for someone else, I'm not "creating" a gift...well, I AM creating a gift, but it's a gift to myself, only to be found and read by someone else when I'm outta here. And I'm journaling. Imagine that. And I'm looking forward to each new question. Imagine that. A lot can happen in 5 weeks. I can't even imagine where you'll take me in 52, but thank's for the ride. I'm enjoying it so far!

You in 52 - Week 4

The question: What 7 decisions changed the course of your life?

I thought about this all week long and actually came up with 7 decisions. Decisions like moving to California, taking this job instead of that job, etc., nothing really life life continued on in the same fashion. And then it hit me...those two decisions made in my youth, not marrying and not going to college, changed the direction of my life forever.

I can't wait to see what Debby has in store for us this week.
