Using the stash. And too many words...


I haven't so much as contemplated a scrapbook layout since the beginning of February.   I tend to only scrapbook at the Crop at the beginning of each month.  This month we didn't hold a Crop and I'm missing it.  Weird huh, considering I've only just put the February LOs in an album.  Really.  I was looking for a photo that I could take to my new hairdresser to show her how stunning I really can look when the cut, colour and style come together - a bit like the transition of Halley's Comet - once every then and not often.  So ya see, I remembered that one of those moments was on our Silver Wedding Anniversary, and that I definitely featured in one or two of the party photos I've since used on a couple of Layouts.  Long story longer...I found it, and then felt obliged to sleeve up and file the pile of LOs just gathering dust and getting in the way on top of the albums.  Funny how you can lose interest once the page is made, huh.  Oh. Just me then?
I learned something else on this last minute flinging about of albums and pages too.  I don't feature in many photos at all!  I don't particularly intend to rectify that, but just in case I die tragically prematurely, I shall make an effort to put some of the finer photos in my albums so that future generations can admire my choice of hairdresser. Just a handful, so that my overwhelming modesty remains apparent.
Of course, I also want those future generations to know that I tried hard to earn my keep and erm, suffered in steel toe capped boots for some of my work.  Just so you know, I don't wear these when I'm crafting - I'm definitely safer with scissors and scalpels than you think. Actually, this was going to be a post about how I've been using up odds and ends of stash, but its OK, I know I'm on the moral high ground over that.  I can brag about it some other day.  If I ever learn to stop digressing.

There are never too many words on your blog... great photo too.

I like the way you've wrapped your title and embellishments around the pictures . . . and the use of a more feminine paper & colors is kind of a neat juxtaposition to the boots. :) Happy Tuesday! ~ Laura

Oh Julia, I might need your boots for my crafty corner--I was rearranging it and found deadly snips of wire and pins in the floor! Holy moly I'm dangerous. I love your scrapbook page though.

Such a great layout Julia! Made me chuckle reading about how you are safer with your crafting tools! My late hubby used to hide my Xacto knifes as I was (still am) a danger with them. I would search them out etc. I am glad to say, I picked up a retractable one these years later, and my hubby does any serious cutting I need!

When I first saw your socks, I thought they were bloody. That was funny, once I read the post. And yes, I've worn my fair share of steel toed shoes and safety glass glasses, too. After all, I'm a former factory gal, or should I say a gal who worked on a factory floor.

Please digress as much as you wish. It helps me make my point, too (grin).

BTW, where's the lovely hair do you are so proud of, or is it lost forever in the shuffle? And I'm like you. Once it's made, I don't revisit, at least not unless someone asks.

See you soon for WOYWW.
