Ever decreasing circles
Tracie here, with ‘The tale of one woman’s battle with the housework!’
I do start off with good intentions, honestly I do! But you know how it is, the scrapbooking side of your brain is far stronger than the practical side:
and so it was that despite being surrounded by mr muscle, a scourer and a mucky kitchen, my brain must have still been in ‘scrapbook mode’
So when I was midway through scrubbing the washing machine door I was struck by the concave shape and suddenly everything had to be abandoned to commit the idea that was forming onto a layout (or two)
Fortunately, I have a very understanding other half who just walks in, eyes the destruction in the kitchen, takes in the bottles of ‘I started but I’m not finished’ next to the bleach, and with a resigned expression says ‘I won’t ask what you ended up doing this afternoon, but I’m betting your craftroom looks about as tidy as this kitchen!’
Still, there’s always tomorrow (or until the next idea strikes!)
and until then, here’s my ‘washing machine’ layout!
I used the new Little Yellow bicycle Just because range for this page, which fitted perfectly with the blues and reds in the photo of my lovely daughter-in-law, Kirsty and my adorable little grandson, Declan
and why stop at circles?
I used Studio calico classic calico papers for my next layout because I loved the neutral shades against the strong blue in the photo.
Here’s my wonderful stepson Karl and my equally wonderful grandson, Elliott.
So that’s all from me for this month, mainly because I have some housework to come to grips with!
