$crap Cleanout

Seems that at least twice a year my Studio screams to be cleaned and re-organized. Today the call to clear out the shelves and bins was ringing loud in my ears and resulted in a scrap avalanche!

As a product designer, I LOVE to see my work in it's final form but I rarely have time to use it because I'm always working on designing the next new line. Much of the product that was taking up residence in my studio was looking for a forever home much like a pooch at the pound. Thus the monster of all scrapbooking giveaways! Page Kits, Tablets, Embellishments, Papers and Chipboard mini albums etc...

Here are a couple of snaps of the scraps!

In the spirit of welcoming the new year I'm happily shouting "Out with the old & in with the new!"  Drop a comment if you want stuff here or on fb.

Wouldn't it be nice

There's a song running through my head, and this post is my blog equivalent of humming a few bars so you can sing along... I've rewritten the words to fit my current state of mind.

Wouldn't it be nice if we were freer
And face time was face to face; not on the phone
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
Out in the world; not home alone

You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can be courteous and work and play together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
And enjoy a day without these distractions
And after having spent the day together
Be thankful for our interactions

Happy times together we'd be spending
And all the tweeting would soon be ending
Wouldn't it be nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Then there wouldn't be as much self-absorption and rudeness too
And we'd be less harried
And then we'd be happy

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes more sense to live without it
But lets talk about it
Wouldn't it be nice

I hope that people can unplug and pay attention to their families and friends, if only for one day. Wouldn't it be nice...

Gotta go now, I need to update my facebook status with a link to this blog - ;) but seriously, it would be nice...
