Been Offline

Been Offline!!
Due to mini crisis at home related to enforcing computer gaming rules for my boys, we had to take a hard stand last week and removed the cables to the computer indefinitely!! It worked and there was no protest and in fact a peaceful week (it was a one week school holiday) spent playing board games and creating with Lego and Knex, outdoors, at the beach, and at the museum!
Unfortunately for me I share the computer with the boys (the dh has one for himself..because he has work on it, well that's his reason anyway :p ) I was OFFLINE too!

It was quite uncomfortable, but I too did more reading, and finally, I scrapped, the traditionally paper way! Well, I have been wanting to re-scrap the boys' baby photos which were not digital photos, and did not want to bother with scanning them. Guess what, I enjoyed myself so much! The scrapping was tedious and I kept it simple, but going through Ryan's baby photos just felt so... well, precious and warm and fuzzy, and I am now able to journal a lot about those days, well, from my current reflections of 11 years ago! Look at some of these pages!


I asked Ryan what he did to my sweet baby in those photos, and he said " I upgraded him." I can't disagree with that!
Okay, I did log on a few times after they went to bed, downloaded freebies and over the weekend, completed a page:

  3. Oh boy - while I agree with enforcing rules for the kids, that would sure be harder for ME than for them! I admire your example to them by sticking with it! I am waiting for my children to notice that they have timers for "screen time" but I don't... I'm a bad mommy... :O
    Blessings to you Yin!

  4. What a great idea to make the game thing rule happen. I know it was a bummer for you but still looked productive. Maybe I need you to come to my house and enforce the less Internet rule... lol my DH would love you for it... lol

    I love all your layouts and I am continually amazed at the amount of photos you can fit on a layout and still have it look so classy. You are AWESOME!!!! Thanks for always being so kind and generous with your talents too!
    Blessings,

Thanks for the tips for printing 2 pagers. I'm using some for my son's lifebook, and will print it on Shutterfly, so want to make sure it comes out great! Thanks, Starla
