The Rest of the Mac-less weekend:)

Because i am all about the many pics on a page/no need for multiple pages these days:) the more i can squeeze on a page, the better!

Check out the winter boots:) LOL. Used the scraps of a www.thescrappingspot.com kit my friend Eva sent me:) She RULES!
Broke out the OLD KI for this one. having fun with some of the fugly pages i was condensing:)
more old ki, more condensing.
......and she keeps using up the KI and making room in the old binders:) i am making old ugly 2-3 page spreads into cuter one pagers. i just don;t have the unlimited space i thought i did:)
more old KI.....i love these pictures. and such beautiful memories....that's what it is all about.

it's been a LONG weekend:)

My mac had to go into the MacHospital for a tune up and so i was left internet-less.


so of course i was obligated to find other things to do....and i actually scrapped a bit:) could you believe?

shoot me because the pictures are terrible, but i am in the middle of an inspiration period and i can't take too long off:) all these pages are from my long suffering wedding album. it is an 8x8 format which is a little hard for me...but good for the pics.

all my supplies are just misc. stuff that i gathered around the SU designer paper. i had one of those AWESOME B&W 1991 weddings....nice pics, huh? LOL

Finding Inspiration:)

I am not afraid to admit that  i am addicted to magazines. i LOVE them.  i hoard them...but they take up a LOT of space.
So this past weekend i decided to take the bulls by the horns and tackle the stack of mags in the scrapspace. My daughter had an extra file folder notebook from school, so i recycled it :)
The following pages were done with SU supplies and a few misc. things from my stash.
ideas from Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine. all supplies from SU except title and pen: American Crafts
Idea from Scrapbooks Etc. all supplies SU except title: MME
Idea from Simple Scrapbooks. all supplies SU.

A peek at my idea folder. As soon as one of the pages or articles is used it till go in the circular file....i did, however, keep all the current mags:)

My mission for this year:)

So last year my word and mantra was simplify.
This year the word in CONDENSE.
I have to focus in and compact my life. cut out the excesses and make my space work.
i have an aversion to clutter....so i am working HARD to make sure that everything has a place.
i have a cube full of pages in my bookcase that i need to fix and remake. Just because i need to do it for my own creative process.
and there is my desk. the CLUTTER...ARGGGGGHHHHHHH.

one more card:)

This one was from the last batch using the same supplies.

A page and a card. More later:) i had to use up the remaining cardstock and stuff:)
