no new pics of Phillipines today - mostly the ones left are of flowers etc -
It's been a while since I don't have anything specific to write about.
Thought I'd update you all on my day to day life....
Well training is going well - my "students" are eager to learn so training is good.
They are always challenging me to learn Tagalog so I am enjoying that!
(I know my numbers from 1-7) and a few other words!
Scrapbooking - I'm having severe withdrawal issues - not sure if my readers have ever scrapbooked (many of you have) - but you can also liken it to Eating - when you don't eat for a long time as soon as you see a piece of food you eat too quickly and anything at all --- well same with scrapbooking - I mean not surprising - it truly is one of the "basic needs in life - eat, sleep, sex, scrapbooking, exercise. OK so back to my "deprivation" s0 - I'm withdrawing - I didn't bring anything with me but photos (with the idea of sketching) and black pens (zig- - I mean everyone carries their sbook pens with them right??). So what do I do? I'm on a mission to find Sbook supplies - and was successful --found paper - OK so it's not 2 bugs or basic grey- but I found paper! So of course I had to buy it - cause I mean I'm starving here!! LOL
Of course I don't have a cutter here - bought an olfa knife - metal ruler and of course a cutting mat (sorry J I'm trying out your mat - hope you don't mind)
And I'm scrapbooking! Its amazing how much you can do with not alot!! And I kind of decided this book will be rather "minimalistic" as I feel that the "true" Filipino is minimal - they believe in the church - family - etc. Nothing flashy! (ok ok wes I know about the red light district!)
Here are pics of a sbook page I did - OK understand I'm on limited resources - one page is part of the album (still figuring how to page protect in this album - ) and the other is a smaller book that I'm making of the "flowers/fauna" that I see.
I basically will be (or should be able) to finish up most of the book - and I will leave "cricut" items until I come home!! (in less than 2 weeks!)
So the post isn't "flashy" but it's a bit of Me!
Have a fantastic day!!
