Of Life, Tiling, and Scrapbooking

What a crazy kind of weekend! Not really because of so much going on, but just the sheer amount of stuff I managed to pack into it. I took Friday off work just to have a day to chill out, and ended up spending most of it finishing up my scanning project. I didn't get through quite all of it, but enough to be able to loan the scanner to Mom and Dad for a while. Friday evening was spent watching Stargate: SG-1 while packing page kits to take on travel next week.

Sunday after church I spent the majority of the day scrapbooking. I wanted to finish the photos from my Aiken Canyon hike last year since I'd started making pages with them more than a month ago. I managed to get through all the photos and made 8 pages in the process. That's just a crazy number of pages (I had way to many photos printed from that trip- you can never take too many photos, but I think that you can print too many, at least for me) and I won't be doing quite that many again for any event, or I'll end up with 27 and a half million albums by the time I'm 30.

But these were fun to do, just to show off this paper. :)

So, that covers Friday and Sunday, but what about Saturday? I decided to save those photos for last, because this is possibly the most unflattering photo of me that has ever been taken. Here's the story:

I went to my brother's house to help him tile his bathroom, but first we had to pull up the old vinyl from the main floor and the carpet from the closets. I was sitting in the closet pulling up tack strips that had been nailed into the concrete, and Mom started taking pictures, saying she was getting me back for all those times I took pictures of her she didn't like...and she said something about trying to get a picture of me with something hanging out of my nose. So I, being the nut that I am, stuck end of the prybar up my nose, and of course she got a photo of it. And then I got back to work. :)

Oh, yeah, and we actually did get some tile on the floor. :)

Oh, my, I didn't realize there would be so much to see tonight! I love the little deer paper with that photo. That is so sweet. Your paper selections look so happy. I do agree whole-heartedly that photography has expanded your horizons quite literally. And what a wonderful shot of my ear! LOL, I'll be back tomorrow for a longer visit...I came by late tonight after a looooong day of weeding. Owey. Beautiful work, as always. It just makes me feel better coming by here. Makes me smile. :-) Till tomorrow…
