Allright, we now resume our regularly scheduled P post for Jo's compendium ...
This week for P I started searching hi and low for P words that defined me and i was totally stuck, i mean totally ... like a bug in amber ... just that stuck.
okay, so this bug is trapped in a lollypop ... not quite the same as amber ... this is my daughters, she hasn't quite licked it clear down to the bug yet ...
So i started to search obscure P words (don'tcha just love google) ... and i found quite a few very interesting words, but again ... nothing just quite fit ... i was back in that amber.
Late last night, as I was shutting everything down for the day and getting ready to tumble into bed the words finally hit me ... in fact they were staring me right in the face ... and those words ... drumroll please .... my Paper Playhouse ... the name of my blog ... duh!
I made this little house banner maybe 18 months ago or so ... and look at the butterfly, it almost looks like it is trapped in amber! weirdness abounds!
Here i have been running around the house and the internet, shaking things loose, searching in those dusty cobwebby corners, hoping that the much desired P word will fall out and land at my feet, when i have been staring at it everyday since I started this blog.
The banners and the "clouds" are cut from separate pieces of paper! Sometimes all you need are a few scraps and a bit of glue!
Paper - gosh i love the stuff ... and i always have, so it's no surprise that i ended up loving scrapbooking and paper crafting as my favourite hobby ... sure there were stops along the way, forays into the crafts my mother and her mother and her mother before her enjoyed ... but i was never really home until i discovered playing with paper. So here i am, in my imaginary/cyberspace playhouse, playing with paper, and the sun is shining brightly... the skies are blue and the birds sweep & swoon & sing ... the crickets tell me their stories and the butterflies whisper their secrets and anything absolutley anything glued down can be lifted up and repositioned without causing harm to a single piece of paper... my loved ones and my friends stop by for a cuppa and a chat and life is beautiful ... here in my little paper playhouse.
Look what you can do with plain white paper ... it's good to play ... and no, there are no bugs in that lolly!
