and now for something completely different




Ever try to do a layout and just get stuck because now matter how you arrange something you just don't find that "got it!" feeling? I've decided that a big part of my style in scrapbooking is going to be letting the chips fall where they may, going the chaos route, letting fate and nature take it's course because then I'm not solely responsible for something looking like chicken poop. :0)

On that note, I'll leave you with a limerik or haiku depending on your taste for high or low brow humor.

Limmerik:

There once was a newbie to scrappin'
who was dying to make something happen.
The mess from the birds cage,
was adhered to his page.
Now the bird can't keep up with the crappin'.

Haiku:

Leaves in autumn fall
to random patterns, as if
stickers on my page.

Anyone else have something to share?

Oh I'll give it a try...


There once was a scrapper dude
who totally got himself all unglued
He tore up his photos
including the ones that were grodos
and he made a movie instead

This dude got all stressed out
he didn't know what it was about
He didn't sleep at night
and his brain became fried
and he had to start taking prozac

OK now enough of that and lets get to spreading the news about the movie already!

Oh Anonymous... You always have the funniest posts. I love the eE Cummings kind of break out Limmerik. You will not be constrained by meter and rhyme. Words are your playthings to flaunt and carelessly scatter about the page.

Actually it's Wellbutrin.

Scrapper's block already?

I didn't think new scrappers got that? Writing is a great idea. It can get you unstuck.

I use text from my blog to use as journaling on scrapbook pages.

Some days, I just put the pictures on cardstock with a title. Nothing else except a date. That works too. Can't have every page being a work of art.

No funny poems from me.

hi Wes,

is the article on the scrapbook page about you? what magazine?

Hi Nancy,

good eye. Yes, layout is about an article in Scrapbook Answers magazine from a couple months ago. They were kind enough to run an interview about me and the project. The layout talks about a picture I sent in for the article where I was reading their magazine upside down with a confused look on my face. They requested something a little more tradtional so I put in the article and both pics.

Dude...you make me howl. I love your stuff. I've gotta get my husband's (oh yes - his) credit card and order your flick.

Wes, I just have to say that I can't wait to get your movie and watch it. I think that your idea for this film will be inspirational to alot of people, and will really give them an in depth look as to what it's all about.
Also, as for finding chicken poo on your page... we all started somewhere and 9 out of 10 of us started with the poo - me included!

There once was a girl who scrapped,
who's layout looked like a piece of cr*p.
She couldn't figure it out,
and was littered with doubt.
Until finally she freaked out and snapped.
