Women and Money…

Women and Money…

OK. I know I have neglected you, and I will make up for it, but I have valid excuses… I’ve been sick (Yes again), I’ve been tired out (close to a burn-out which is most likely the cause for my being sick) and I’ve been 

Secrets

Secrets

Oh Boy! Have I been a slop or what… Leaving you without any posts for so long… WELL TOO BAD! I have a life too (I think – if my wife let’s me)… Well, I’ve been very busy! Working long days and all… Even had 

Adore

Adore

Does your wife also keep referring to this and that woman and her techniques and beautiful work? And once that woman writes an entire book (well… it’s more like a collection of layouts with extended journaling) she can’t wait to get her hands on a copy…

HERE’S THE LATEST IN SCRAPBOOK-BOOKS:

Anyone who ever smoked or still smokes knows Allen Carr as the author of the greatest novel: Easy way to stop smoking… And we all know where that got him! Writing about quitting smoking and then he dies of long cancer…What horrible death would he have died did he indeed wrote above title?

Allen Carr dies of multiple paper cuts!
Allen Carr found Punched to death!
Allen Carr dies after tie got stuck in Cricut!

Xmas every day…

Xmas every day…

My wife thinks it’s Xmas every day! She even acts surprised every time she receives a box filled with scrapbook stuff… Why act surprised if it’s the same stuff you ordered??? And like Xmas boxes with or without content are to be found all throughout 

Tools

Tools

How many tools does one scrapbooking wife need to cut paper?I know you’re thinking: “1… Sciccors!!!” NO! Off course not! Your scrapbooking wife needs at least a dozen different sciccors… big or small, green or red, twisted or straight… It doesn’t matter as long as 

Awards…

Awards…

Did you know that women can actually win prices (besides RAK’s) for their “work”? They can send in their layouts to be judged and maybe even win 15 minutes of fame in return…

I was gonna say something witty about this, but it’s very quiet ever since February 12th on Creating Keepsakes’ award site

Still curious? Is there also a “Lifetime Achievement Award” available? Or better… “The HB” award! The award for the most suffering, most giving in Husband… Or the least spending wife!

I’ll take votes!!! (just on the HB-awards, as the part where they convince us on their spending is so blurry… I AM DOING MY WIFE’S BOOKKEEPING, SO I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT)!!!

As for the scraproom… My wife planned to be off all of Saturday, which leaves me with 2 kids, schoolyard-sale, Flea-market & a birthday party! As for Sunday she already planned a visit to her brother, but came back on it as she wants me to finish the room… So I might be spending some time there (again…).

Anyway! Enjoy your weekend, make sure you get loads & loads of rest… Next week may be totally different…

Taxes

Taxes

We all have to pay taxes… although some do not, but according to the law, we must! If you only work for a company, there’s no biggie… But if you own a company (no matter how small), you need to pay VAT, Income taxes and 

Scrapkits

Scrapkits

You would think she has it all!But no…There is always stuff she doesn’t have yet…Stuff she REALLY needs… And what would one do to get her paws on more scrapstuff?And act surprised when she opens the box?Or worse… Disappointed! Membership to some scrapkit-club!!! And then 

Weekend & Customs

Weekend & Customs

How was your weekend? Did your wife bother you with any nignags? As said before, mine was off for 2 days… so I had a perfect weekend… Me and the boys have been cocooning all weekend! Had Patat, Pancakes & Pizza for dinner, Chips & Tosti’s for lunch & cookies & candy for breakfast!!! Watched loads of TV (Nickelodeon), played all the online-games we could find & even some Gameboy-stuff…

Although most of you will probably never have to experience trouble with customs, here’s a little something on how to fool them… If you have a supplier that wants to “work” with you they will lie on the commercial value of the goods… However, if they do not want to “help out”, they will fill in the actual value and you’ll have to pay the whole impot-duty and VAT-amount… Which will reflect on the price!

I’m not saying I’ll be the one with the hat!

LYSAFAW!

LYSAFAW!

What’s her name?NO!LYSAFAW means Leave Your Spouces Alone For Another Weekend! Yep you guessed it: ANOTHER RETREAT!!! Curious what it is and what they do? H2G2 (BBC) has a page that explains it all! As if scrapping at home, with friends or a whole day
