Day Seven - Catch-up Day
*I wasn't getting every single Basic Grey paper line anymore.
*I began to make cards with a vengeance and started buying 6X6 paper packs like they were going out of style.
*I found new product lines to love like Cosmo Cricket and Pink Paislee.
*I embraced all things small which just means I started doing mini-books instead of just buying them.
*I started stamping which again means I started stamping with the products I had plus bought lots more.
*I love dress forms, sewing machines, sewing images on patterned paper, and vintage cooking images/paper! What?
Which believe or not leads me to the point. Styles can change. And although I myself am adverse to change, my sense of style is not. I came to this realization on one of my most recent shopping trips when I was buying Prima paper and stamps (see pic above). Yes, Prima! Totally not my style at all. Very whimsical, feminine, romantic and the like. Things I usually avoid like the plague. But boy do I love it. So much that I made a layout about my amazing friend and my biological clock which seems to be whispering 'have a baby' every friggin' minute of the day.
When I look at this layout - I see a lot of traditional me in it - clean lines, flowers, journaling. But then there's the mask in the corner and multiple photos and a paper unlike any I have ever scrapped with and I'm faced with the reality that my style is changing. And you know what - I'm really glad it is!
Today: I have just a few things to say about my day which will give you an idea of how it was. I spent two hours at the DMV (two trips, one hour each). I spent 30 minutes at the County government office waiting when I didn't need to. I spent $113 at Jiffy Lube on things I actually needed. And after all that came home to an apartment where the air condition still wasn't fixed. Nice eh? But after all of that - I got myself a nice lunch and came back and took a nap. Feeling a little better now. Here's hoping you had a great Monday. Until then...
P.S. CKC in four days! Can't wait.
