LADIES, PAPER AND LACE!
Hello my dear Pinkies! Hope you are all having a great weekend. I have had the weirdest thing happen to me this week. (The story of my life!) I had 6 comments made on my blog, a whole two years ago, that were written in Chinese. Not being very computer savvy or savvy period, I just thought someone was following my blog who was Chinese. How nice! I left the comments, not thinking anything about them. It turns out, those Chinese comments were ladies selling themselves on my blog! Here I am, thinking how nice, a new follower, totally clueless! Google, picked it out some two years later! What are you doing Martha, they ask? I don't know, I answered. You can't just call Google and ask them what the problem is. No, that would be too easy! You have to go to their help page. There others who are so much smarter than I, will try to help you. These kind people who helped me, tried to explain to this not so sharp lady, what she is doing wrong. It took a while but, I think they finally figured out how to get me out of this problem. So, needless to say, I think I closed my "shop". Please pray that Google does not cancel my blog because I have violated their rules. Lesson learned, do not leave comments on your blog if you do not understand them. It is better to hurt that person's feelings that to try to fix the problem later. Amen! Has this ever happened to any one else? Or am I just lucky?
Moving on, I was at a scrapbook store today with my dearest friend and was amazed at all the new things that scrap bookers have to work with. I have not been scrapbooking for a few months. At Christmas time I was in a state of panic because I had a scrapbook I needed to finish. (I did finished, with 2 days to spare!) It brought back the "scrapbooking bug"! Once again, I have a desire to scrap. When one decides to start scrapbooking again, what do we need? That's right PAPER!
So today, I went to scrapbook heaven! Here are some of the beautiful papers I found. I don't know why this craft is so expensive. It is just paper! It seems there is always a new "tool" you just can't live without. Did I ever tell you I collect paper and vintage lace? Well, you guessed it! As a "Serial Collector", my problem is with paper and vintage laces. I never met a piece of beautiful paper, I didn't love. We won't even talk about vintage lace! I just wanted to show you what I purchased. (I know, I have a "paper problem".)
I have so many scrapbooks I need to finish, I just need to decide where to start. I think I am only about 7 years behind schedule. Could be worst! This year, I will finish one more book for a family member or friend. That is my goal. Notice all the pretty pink paper I found! Lovely! Have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget about my give away. Details on December 31st post! See you on Tea Cup Tuesday! Hugs, Martha
By the way, thanks for praying for me. I did that hard thing, I told you about and felt good immediately!
