A Place in the Sun

I have only a few things for you today. First, here's my week 5 Deck of Me (we're on week 8, but I'm way behind).:This one was advice to yourself at 18. My advice (on the back, not shown) was "Don't worry these are nowhere near the best years of your life" which is a line from the Brad Paisley song "Letter to me". I thought that was the best advice to give a teenager.

Through Crafted By Us, I learned of this collage image group on Flickr. When I was a teenager, I LOVED making collages. It's only been recently that I learned that this is a whole art form, so now this has taken over my life;).

Also, over the weekend, I ran into a friend at the park (we had gorgeous weather this weekend, it's springtime!) and she asked about our trip back in December. I told her that I need to show her my scrapbook of it and she said "You scrapbook? I've been wanting to learn how. I bought lots of paper and glue and albums but I never did them!" So, at least until she never actually calls, I have a local scrapbooking friend (did I mention that she asked me yesterday about my trip in December? I doubt we'll actually be getting together to scrapbook).

And, I rode the motorcycle for the first time (in my skirt, got a lot of neighborhood stares for that one). It was actually quite fun, but I get freaked out at going 30mph.

They're fixing my roof today so I'm stuck at home. I thought roofs were supposed to last longer than 5 years (and I didn't know there was anything wrong with it).


  1. I love your card, and that song...and Brad Paisley..:-) will have to check out that Flickr site, I love the look of collage, but just not sure how to go about it...

  2. Your card is beautiful. Don't feel bad, I am working on week 3's prompt for my deck of me cards.


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
