You actually thought I had the weekend off to do fun stuff with the kids… WELL YES & NO!!! YES: I did spent time doing fun stuff like going to a birthday party, swimming & playing Xbox-games! And NO: It finally happened… She did not

And No… not another weekend working in my wife’s scrapbookroom, as she is actually waiting for the contractor the place the window (Was he waiting for Vista?)… He came ’round last week to get the contract signed and my wife gave hime the message to have it done before the 17th… As I have a dead-line to finish the isolation of the room! Wanna see me in action? HERE!

This weekend will be spend by doing “family stuff”; swimming, games, glueing scale models…

Hope yours is as fun-filled as mine! See y’all back on Monday!

Do you have any idea why your wife doesn’t go out shopping alone? Wondering why she always have to bring her friend? Or a whole pack? Or her mom? Stop wondering ’cause I found this here “editorial” piece to explain the phenomenon! BubbaH!

How to make money with scrapbooking

How to make money with scrapbooking

This is as real as it gets… Although I do not really trust that site by the way it looks! They’re probably the only ones making money of scrapbooking!!!! Maybe this is an oppertunity to make money instead of spending it… Does anyone here have 

Compliments to make when in trouble

Compliments to make when in trouble

I know y’all recognize this one…

Whenever my wife makes a LO or minibook, she needs me to see it and tell her what I think of it… Y’all know that we cannot actually tell them we love it, otherwise they’d be buying and buying and buying, or we really don’t like it… as they will not have sex with us for a LOOOOOOOOONG time!

So, here are some compliments you can use when you feel the heat

Just tell her:

  • “ART IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE YOU MADE IT THAT WAY. THERE IS NO WRONG WAY TO DO IT”
  • “WHATEVER YOU CREATE IS A MASTERPIECE AND IS COMPLETLY PERFECT. DON’T FEEL OR LET ANYONE TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT”
  • “YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE YOUR WORK IN A GALLERY, OR SUPPORT YOURSELF FINANCIALLY TO TELL THE WORLD YOU ARE AN ARTIST”
  • “NOT EVERYONE WILL APPRECIATE YOUR WORK IN THE SAME WAY YOU DO, BUT THERE IS AT LEAST ONE PERSON OUT THERE WHO DOES. BUT THAT SHOULD NOT MATTER ANY WAY BECAUSE YOUR OPINION IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS!”
  • “YOU SHOULD PLAY, AND OFTEN. USE THOSE SUPPLIES, THAT IS WHAT YOU BOUGHT THEM FOR, ISN’T IT?” (At least you trick her into using up some stuff!)

BubBAH!

Conspiracy Theory

Do you ever get the impression that you wife is playing tricks on you when it comes down to Scrapping? WELL, your wife probably isn’t the only one… even the suppliers are trying to leave us out in the pitch black darkness… Cosmo Cricket is 

Weekend

Weekend

Again, but this time I really need to work on the scrap-room… A friend of mine is going to help me out and he has the idea to start (on a saturday) at 7:30 am! I’m not complaining, at least someone is helping me… (besides 

Women vs. Men

Women vs. Men

Scrapper’s Paradise = Husband’s Hell?

Do I really need to elaborate on this one?

Well… OK! But if you need more input, don’t be lazy and read the older posts…

First there is the urge to collect: anything (and I do mean ANYTHING) is usable on a LO! wheter it’s a button of a pair of pants that YOU no longer are allowed to wear (I keep asking myself why… It only had 1 tear just below my “bottom”, which is totally hip again I noticed as I was made to shop for a new pair!), or the packagematerial on top of the Peanutbutter jar (you know that shining gold stuff… Never know when you will use it, so you keep like at least 2 year’s stash!).

Second the selling stuff: If she needs to buy stuff wholesale, yes indeed it comes in amounts of x, but why why why would she also keep the package material??? Going do any LO’s with that? Is it purely to PO (replace PO with a nasty word) me? And like she does not have enough packing material, she goes to the wholesale store to BUY packing materials!

And third the scraproom: NAG NAG NAG that it is still not done, and it already is like this for a year (I don’t see her taking up a hammer, screwdriver, drill or whatever… Or for that matter I don’t even want her to! Can you imagion the damage?), but did she call the contractor about that “daylight”-window? I don’t know how much you would pay for daylight, but I think we will have the most expensive lit room in the neighbourhood! DOES MONEY GROW ON TREES IN YOUR GARDEN, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHERE YOU BOUGHT IT!

BubBAH!
