Bare Elements

Bare Elements

When you are brand number X and you want a piece of the (scrap) pie, you need to come up with something that catches the eye of the potential public. So you ask yourself: how do I sell paper TO WOMEN… Yeah that’s right: PAPER! 

SWAP-parties

SWAP-parties

We all know the meaning of SWAP, right? How often did you hear conversations like below… “I’ve bought this gorgeous such and such, you should see it!”“Me too, if there are some more, we can do a swap!!!”“I’m in!”“Me too!”“Count me in as well”… And 

DigiScrap

Have you noticed that your wife spends more and more hours behind the computer screen lately? Has she started talking about digi-scrapping?

REMEMBER: to every con there is a pro: when she starts scrapping Digitally, she no longer has the need for a scraproom, to stuff all those scrapbook articles… She can now store them on the computer!!!

Does that mean she now needs a computer room???

I remember when I wanted to have the computer in the livingroom, she was the one that made me choose between her and the computer… She still has the pictures of me packing!!!

BubbaH! (packed for the weekend)… Or should she be packing for the DT-meeting (not in my house this time)???

Self Help Program (SHeeP)

Self Help Program (SHeeP)

We are getting bigger as a movement all the time… It always starts out with a few that need to push the rest to get their rear in motion! But we are getting THERE! I recently stumbled upon Facebook… Which is a database for people 

Marriage Epiphany

Marriage Epiphany

The epiphany (revelation) of marriage also means that there is no more I… She always tells people “WE are going to build… WE are buying… WE go…”. Does that mean she is going to give me a hand during reconstruction on HER scrap room? NO! 

Scrap a piece of me…

Scrap a piece of me…

You’ve all seen the tools they use… I even showed you what they can do to a pair of flipflops… But do you also know that they actually abuse the embellishments and stuff on themselves?

You want examples, you say?

OK! I hope you got a strong stomach

How about Emily Falconbridge touching her hair while scrapping… with acid-free glue?

Or Vivian Bonder using the book ring to pimp her nose?

Maybe Celine Navarro sat too close (with her lower lip) to the piece she was working on when she decided to add brads?

And what ‘bout eyelet (Or should we say EARlets) check out Silje Roe Hagland’s ears…

And what about the rubons she used? Or her hair: let me count the ways to use Dabbers… Someone could have told her: Enough…

And ofcourse there is Wes Thomsen… He does not only use the rubons in an “unusual” way, he also has a rather strange way to use spikes…

But hey… Everyone their own kick… Hence the cartoon featuring me!!!

BubbaHaHaHaHaHaH!

The Game

The Game

Oh boy did we had fun yesterday… It’s starts to look like a family-team: I Coach, my dad assists, she keeps the score, Michael & his nephew play…We played a nice match against a not too competitive team… First inning we lost with 8-9 (although 

SUPER SUNDAY!

SUPER SUNDAY!

I don’t got her a pressie yet (did buy her flowers-will get some pressies later). At least now she got something to write about me on her blog!!!! But OK, today is the party day, first the family and @ nite the friends! (Check yesterday 

Scrappy Birthday

Scrappy Birthday

As y’all know I’m married to Danielle… Who is celebrating her xxth birthday today! (never tell a lady’s age)

Happy Birthday honey!

I took the day off to make this a special day and guess what she came up with…

A WORKSHOP! (she did ask me if I was OK with that…)

So that leaves me (and Colin) to go buy her gifts (Colin thought up that the gifts should be very GIRLY, since she is the only girl in da house)… Is that a day well spend or what?

BubBAH!

My Scrap Works…

My Scrap Works…

I was asked a couple of months ago by My Scrapworks (a Manila-based e-zine) to do something to make women understand how their husband SUFFER their scrapbook reign… It turned out to be an interview… But now without further ado I give you: ME I
