i might get around to a layout one of these days.

so here is some sort of scrapiness, as promised. this little guy over there to the left is a little banner i made using the maya road coster albums and a bunch of the not-so-new-anymore heather bailey papers. can't get enough of those! the coaster books are the best thing ever; cheapy, small and fun to make a mini mini out of!

speaking of mini mini's i finally got around to re-stocking my little etsy shop, left and leaving, with a bunch of little blank storybooks i've been making over the past couple of weeks. just add a title, photos and whatever you want to write and you have your own little storybook.

i've also been getting back into stamping and making my own cards since working at scraptasia. being surrounded all day by adorable woodmounted stamps and acrylic sets i had to start playing again! i've been slowly branching out in the ink department, thanks to dawn, and playing with fun things like glossy accents, flocking and glimmer mists. i used the way to awesome sushi set from a muse and the "get happy" collection from cosmo cricket to make these cards as thank you's and random notes to have at the ready. it was so fun to be playing with colored pencils and coloring again!
i would like to actually get around to making a layout or two at some point soon. it will be kind of interesting to see if my style changes at all since i've been working in all these different formats lately. plus, i've been so out of touch with the online scrappy world lately i'm wonderign what i've missed. what's everyone loving right now? i don't even know. going through my scrap bins to make all the little blank storybooks i unearthed some bits of paper that i really can't wait to use again, that's for sure!
let's see, what else is new? ooh! i'm pretty proud of myself for acting more age-appropriate lately, haha! i've been having almost-dates and meeting friends for nights out followed by diner re-caps and i have to say i'm feeling way more energized and not quite so old, haha! i'm also starting to discover that there might just be some fun new people around here after all!
okay, i'm off to catch up on some bloggies before i finish getting myself together for work tommorow!

Those cards are beyond. Seriously that is such a yummy stamp and your "roll with it" is genius! Come hang with us! It's prolly um like only a 18 hour drive or something!

love your banner! And that's wonderful that you're going out there and doing fun things. I need to be more like you. I'm such a homebody. The more I give into it, the more I feel like an agoraphobic!
