Scrapping A Friendship








My friend B.C. and I like to scrapbook.
Well scrapbook is a strong word....let me rephrase that a little.
We like to buy scrapbook stuff and containers to organize it and then sit and talk and play around with our stuff.
We have a standing appointment to accomplish this every Tuesday,
Except B.C. has been A.W.O.L. for a month now.
I miss it.
But as you can see it would be hard to say that anything of real scrapbooking substance really gets accomplished.
Here is a picture of what we produced the last time we got together (over a month ago!)
We make what appeals to us.
I would hate to have to actually put any of this together on a page and make sense of it all.
I mean can you imagine the fluffy yellow chick next to the symbol for nuclear waste?
Or the Christmas holly next to the skull with the bullet hole and the pool of blood....Merry Christmas children.
I know that the grenade, the fuzzy dice and the buffalo could work if put together someday.
That being said, I like our stuff.
It is a strange representation of both our lives and personalities......it is deep,
Like our friendship.
And oh the conversations that were had while these beauties were made....
Well that is top secret.
What is your favorite?.....Do tell.
(Mine favorite is a tie between the grenade and the cups of soda with the straws.
Cmon tell me which one you would pick.

The strange yellow creature with a thing poking out of his head...he is the most frightening. I mean. WHAT IS HE/SHE?!?

I USED to 'scrapbook' too. I had some awesome stuff which I organized in an awesome space- and then never got anything done. I have finally given up and made my 'blog' my scrapbook.

I like the Bee stuff best but that's because it's my last name.

Carolyn, it's a jack o lantern with a body...some sort of Halloween mutation I am sure. It is cuter in person than on that picture. lol (but still a little weird I must say.) And Cynthia I think that is what I am going to do is just print out my blog into a book and call it done.....but what are we going to do with all of the "stuff"?

I used to scrapbook regularly with a group of friends and also frequently with my mom and sister. We still get together these days but minus the scrapbooking and I really miss it. We need to start it up again :)
