Yesterday I was back at work, followed by the cinema with a friend….the norm for me on a Sunday. (we saw ‘The Little Fockers’ & may I say that it did not disappoint! Very often sequels don’t live up to expectation, but this was every bit as laugh-out-loud funny as the first two!!) Tomorrow Lee goes back to University…as is norm for him on a Tuesday & on Wednesday both boys are back to school & I will be in the pool by 8.30am!! Life will be back to normal!!
The Christmas decorations are half packed away…all that remains is the tree, which I will dismantle tomorrow & I’m looking forward to that ‘bare’ look the house will have while we adjust to all the greenery, lights & sparkle not being there! I normally wait till twelfth night, but this year I’m keen to Spring clean & de-clutter!!
I’ve started off my scrapping year by taking part in the ‘Glee Club’ contest being held over at ‘Soul Scrappers’…it all kicks off properly on January 22 with six challenges over twelve weeks, but there are all kinds of games, quizzes & other opportunities right now to earn some ‘Early Bird’ points & with $500 dollars worth of prizes up for grabs, every point counts!! Why not pop over there & check it out for yourself…tell them I sent you & I’ll look out for you in the forum!!
The first challenge of the year is up at ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’ & January’s Movie Poster for inspiration is ‘9 to 5’…
The added criteria was to use 1. A clock 2. A red title & 3. a photo from the eighties! The eighties were my favourite decade so I delved into the old photo albums in search of a starting point…Lee joined me & we spent ages flicking through them all, laughing at our younger selves…the boys in hysterics at Dads hair, moustache & huge glasses. I was amazed at how many photo’s I’d actually forgotten about & how slim I looked, when at the time I hated my curves & felt HUGE!! Wish I was that ‘fat’ right now!!
So with my chosen photo, I came up with my LO…I think the title says it all!!!
Why not join us & submit your interpretation of the ‘9 to 5’ poster too, you have until Saturday 29 January & there are some lovely prizes on offer! There have already been some fabulously diverse LO’s posted for you to check out!
I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine with the two local crops I attend too, & catching up with my scrappy friends who I feel as if I haven’t seen in ages…you know who you are!!
My scrappy plans for the coming weeks are to work on finishing up the FIVE projects I have that aren’t quite completed…or in one specific case, barely started!! I’m not usually one to start a new project while I have another in progress but somehow in 2010 things just got away from me & I know I’ll feel much happier.…& more in BALANCE….when I can declare them all finished!
So, that’s me for now…thanks for stopping by & I hope you’re finding life is settling back to normal too!
Blessings! Sandi : )
