weekend random

just in case you're bored and want to customise your very own superhero
(maybe it's a slow blogging day...)

i have been winning again. i won the draw over at #8 wired for my 'stepping out' layout. the challenge was to scrap 'new beginnings', which played right into my 'returning to work' situation!
i really should buy a lottery ticket.

here's a layout i did for scrapbox. my take on their march sketch.
and here's one i did for no reason at all! (it didn't photograph very well)
this is for sketchbook's fortnightly sketch challenge
if you can't read the journalling, basically it says that i bought these blades 6 years ago for $300 thinking (and i use the term loosely) i would get my money's worth. pfft. anyway - they got to see daylight last october and even though i suck, it was a tonne of fun
and now for some random thoughts:
  • i'm feeling left out because i don't have one of them fancy blog buttons
  • anyone wanna make me one for my birthday?
  • which is in 11 sleeps btw
  • my birthday falls on a thursday for the next TWO years in a row! how sucky is that. everyone knows that thursday is the suckiest day of the week to have a birthday
  • i wish i was doing project 365 again - i miss taking a photo every day
  • i signed up for the cupcake making classes. apparently cupcakes are recession-proof. i know this is true, because i bought some yesterday at the farmers market on the way home from miss 11's softball game.
  • i scored 60 followers through the SITS spring fling. i love how women support each other
  • i got paid again! (it's still a novelty). clearly.
  • STILL loving my job.
  • if i ever get off the computer, we're all going down to the girls' (old) primary school gala. it's the first time we're going as an ex-family and can simply enjoy the day without being rostered on the sausage sizzle (or something similar)
  • the sun is shining and there's no wind
  • miss 19 and i are going to the mall later on

i don't know how many SNL fans there are out there, or how many of you have seen this, but it's FREAKIN' HILARIOUS. i've watched it 3 times already
it totally made my day when i saw it.
found it on my girlie colleen's blog.

I don't have a button either... but my blog is suffering from an identity crisis at the moment and banner and buttons are caught in the crossfire. ;)

Sue why are Thursdays the worst days of the week for Birthdays? That used to be the BIG weeknight out back in my college days. Fond memories of Thursdays- he he!

Go you on all the scrapping you have been doing. Sounds like you had a pretty full schedule.
So are you splurging on yourself now that you are bringing home some bacon?

I think you should try to sell some of your pages on Etsy!!

Gretchen said...

Congrats on all the wins! I love your layouts! I need to get busy again. Just never enough time and when I do have time, I'm hurting to much to scrap.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Has anyone offered to make you a button yet? I bet you could make one yourself - it's similar to layouts, only smaller and more cyber. If you want I'd be happy to make one for you... You might want to hold out for a designer-type-person, though.

Congrats on your wins! And on getting paid again (can't imagine what that's like (ha)). And happy early birthday!

Hi!! I linked over from AnnOnandOn! The All Blacks logo on her post caught my eye. My family is from Auckland so I had to click over to your site. Hope you don't mind me taking a look around.

PS that SNL video kills me! HILARIOUS! I just might have to post that on my site ;)
