My furbaby, Metro, has a very definite personality. She isn't particularly vocal, but she's good at letting me know when I'm in the muck. While I was living at home, (well, wherever I live is technically home, I know) back with mum, my sister would vocalise these 'moods' as it were, little witticisms that captured the moment. They became known as 'kittyisms' and were eiter written or spoken.

Now, there is only so much paper I can store, my memory is finate and I want to record them somewhere. So, without further ado, here's a transcript of a kittyism left on my desk that I discovered after work one day...

Dear Upright,

   I wish to complain to the management. The daily allowance of kibbles has dropped. It is not acceptable. Positive adjustment is needed to avoid wastage; wastage of me! Now, feed me!!


Yup, one disgruntled kitty...

I'm sure I'll have some more soon. Have a great day.

Forecast Friday: Sticky patches ahead with a little misting in areas

So, my plans for the weekend involve paper, glue, photos and ink. Yes, I intend to get crafty. I have a mountain of wedding photos I want to scrap and I've spent about 7 months with scrappers block! Mind you, I have settled back into scrapping this last week. I'm very chuffed with the results although I've no idea where the inspiration came from!

Here's one of my creations, it's not totally wedding focused, but it's something I want to remember from the day, the way I felt, well, more the way I was made to feel :) 

I'm also trying to use my stamps so I used a 2 1/2 polkadot stamp (Stampin' Up) to emboss the backround and the cute teal heart badge is from Flair Buttons (how cute are they!)

I'm pretty happy with the way things are working out, and I feel like I'm progressing. 

It's funny, how suddenly your mojo runs away at the prospect of something special to you. I've never been phazed before, by any event. I don't know whether it was just the 'special' factor or the amount I want to do, or maybe I just got overwhelmed that I want it to be a 'story'. Whatever it was, it feels great to be back behind the paper. Whatever you get up to, have a great weekend.

Best laid plans...

Well, for all my grand theories, blogging regularly seems to have gone down the swanny! So what's new..?

Well, I have a new job, I live with my husband, we moved to Leeds, we have a nephew due next week, I'm back to my studies and my cousin got married so we had a holiday to San Fracisco! That's the last 6 months in a nutshell.

So, here's a few snippetts of San Francisco.

Me and The Boy

The Cable Cars

Murals in the Mission District

 Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl... This was AMAZING

Evil jellyfish at the aquarium... *shudders*

And of course, the Golden Gate Bridge

I have been scrapping, but not alot until this last month, my mojo took a sabbatical. It's warming up, but more on that at a later date. However, if you really want a peek, Instagram or Two Peas are the way forward - check the 'My gallaries' page. And now for the bit I find difficult... signing off. But it's bedtime and I need to sleep! Off to rediscover the online world of paper in the morning.
