fursday

i love that even with all the new words j has obtained, and how much progress his little language world has made, he still says "fursday" amongst other f-words that aren't really meant to be f-words.

i went shopping again last night. yeppers.
i'm addicted to stamps i think.
eek!
i will take a photo later of my latest so everyone (including me) can drool.
then i'm gonna play.

reading The Big Picture by Stacy Julian.
it's not often i actually *read* idea books.
for me they're mostly a good source for eye candy and visual inspiration.
this one i'm reading...cuz that's the good part about it.
i totally agree with her philosophy...
enjoying the creative process.
using scrapping as a medium for enjoying your life.
she says:
"i think scrapbooking is a way to LIVE WITH PASSION.
it's about being present in your life. it's about recognizing
a fleeting moment as MEMORABLE before it passes
and it's about the ability you have to say, 'I WAS HERE,
i lived and breathed and played in the sand. i learned
and i loved. i laughed and i cried and i danced to disco
in my kitchen.' "

i don't need anyone to tell me that it's ok to not scrap chronologically...
or to remember the little moments...
what to use or how to think...
but the introspection that can come from listening to and absorbing others' opinions, habits, and perspectives is pretty damn cool.
