What Can I Say?

The prompt for Documented Life this week was "Feathers" and here's what I did:

Thank you to my Pamikins for the awesome crow napkin.  It is SO awesome and I wish I had a million of them, because I LOVE how it looks!

I cut my feathers out by hand...yes, that's fussy cutting two weeks in a row (WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME???) using scrapbook paper and some pages from my beloved Gregg journal.  I feel as though Gregg has been sorely neglected...I need to make things right with him...I love Gregg too much to leave him all alone for so long!

I'm slowly trying to use up my enormous scrapbook paper stash...I mean, I don't guess it's an enormous stash compared to other people's stashes...but it's definitely an enormous stash for me, because I hardly ever use it.  It's been calling my name more and more...I'm going to have to figure out how to incorporate it into some art stuff and appreciate it's magnificence in that way...instead of appreciating it's magnificence on the shelf... 

This was a rare spread for me, because it doesn't really mean anything.  I mean, look at it.  No quotes or anything!  And it's not because I didn't try!  I actually spent last night scrolling through Pinterest for some kind of words to add and I came up with NOTHING!  

Don't get me wrong, I like this spread...I like it pretty darn well actually...but there's just something weird going on here!

No quotes on this spread...fussy cutting two weeks in a row...no face has been drawn...it's like invasion of the body snatchers in my studio!  (I'M SCARED!!!)

The only thing I really associated with this spread was noticing that the birds here in East Tennessee are starting to flock together, gearing up for the trip South (just like me next week...heading to the beach!!!  I can't wait!)...a sure sign that fall is close at hand!  And I do love me some fall weather...  Maybe that's why I'm cool with this spread as it is and not TOO freaked out (...still a little freaked out...) by the no words/no face/fussy cutting that I've got going on...

Add to the list of weird things happening in this post...I can't think of anything else to add!  Usually I'm so wordy (you know me!), but seriously, I've got NOTHING!  Who am I and what happened to the real Sweets?

Maybe if I go work on my Journal 52 for this week she'll come back...it's worth a shot...  :)


  1. 'Birds of a feather... ' :)) Great spread Sweets! I totally hear you on the scrapbook paper stash too. Jeez. I'm making little mini notecards and envelopes to try to whittle it down... even considered giving some of it away!

  2. I love that napkin too, sweet tea, and your page is marvelous! We will be waiting to see if your journal52has a quote, words, scrapbook paper and or a face on it, before we get alarmed!☺️Glad to see Gregg made an appearance! Love the fall colors

  3. Oh Sweets, this page is lovely! I like your friends suggestion of Birds of a Feather... I love that napkin too, I have given so many of them away, that I don't know if I have any left. I will look. So happy that you found a home for him, he looks quite happy on this page. I know you fussy cutted the feathers, but did you fussy cut the crow too? Amazing! Thanks for tagging me, I love this!!! HUGS, Pamikins

  4. Darling Sweets, I love this page. I frequently have only images without words. Many times that enough!


I'd love to hear from you!
