Stephanie: Chicken Alert!!!

Scrapbooking is one of my favorite hobbies, but for the past 6 months or so I just haven't felt into it. I usually scrapbook chronologically and wondered if that was part of my hold up. So lately I've been scrapbooking whatever comes to mind instead, and that has gotten me back in my scrapbook room creating memory greatness again. I've got my mojo jojo back!

One thing I like to do is find challenges on the internet to help me along. At ScrapMojo they had a Peter Pan challenge, and being a pirate I couldn't pass it up. I had a previous blog post in mind when I made it. I have also been challenging myself to use all of the old, unstylish products I purchased back in the day mixed with my new fun stuff to try to make them cool again. Sometimes it doesn't quite work out, but I'm always pleased with the end result anyway.

At The Art is Found they had a challenge to use feathers as your inspiration. Even though the deadline has passed I wanted to do it anyway. When I first saw the challenge I had an idea to use some old pictures of me and a few of my chickens for it. I miss having chickens! My friend Stephanie is petrified by them. I was once attacked by a rooster, so I get it. But most chickens are kind.

Hopefully I will stay inspired and get all 50,000 pictures I've taken scrapped.

Again, love the pirate page! Just hitting you back to let you know that the best type of pen to use to write on a photo (or any slick surface) is Slick Writers by American Crafts. Gel Pens usually work okay too, but I'd test them first. If you have any other product questions like that, feel free to ask. I work at a scrapbooking store, so I'm full of useful information!

Love your scrapbooking Paperback Pirate. One of the best photos of my daughter was of her holding a chicken. She loved chickens too and it is my dream one day when we get a bigger backyard to get the meantime I read the blog Life in the Dome and live vicariously through that blogger.

I'm so glad that the challenge inspired you to scrap. I definitely know that scrapbooking chronologically was messing my mojo up when I did it that way. Thanks so much for playing. And I totally adore that photo!
