scrapbooking and letters-overseas

Finally! I finally finally did some more of my scrapbook phewf. I started off back in September and told myself I'd do at least a page and week and I just kinda forgot about it and procrastinated it away. But today I decided to sit and do some. I love it ... I love how I can incorporate my art, photography and writing into it. My three favourite things to do. I'm always looking around online and finding quotes that I like, I literally have a folder on my laptop completely filled with them. Two I included here are, "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times. If one only remembers to turn on the light." Now all you Potter lovers will know this came from the wonderful Albus Dumbledore. J.K.Rowling is amazing with words. The photo on the next page is a little edit from one I have on one of my earlier pages - I changed the way it looked on photoshop and I included it here on top of a photo I took of the sea because I feel like it fits the quote. I took the photo at a time when I was trying to overcome the hatred of how I look ... the original photo was so bad I went onto photoshop and edited. I feel like what Dumbledore said is true, happiness can be found, I just had to turn on the light myself. And I did, and I'm a lot more comfortable with how I look now. The next "I never really understood the point of social interaction." isn't really a quote, I just saw it on tumblr and loved it because I completely agree. I do enjoy being a hermit and sitting in alone on my computer, or doing my art, or reading a book. It's just a nice way of saying hey, I'm not a huge fan of being social. Don't get me wrong, I love a party or going out with my friends. But, I'd choose staying in over going out all the time.

I recently got involved with a new blog mainly targeted at girls! Letters-Overseas is a blog run by myself and my best friend who lives over in Canada. It has a lot of content and will have a daily post. Down the side of the blog is a list with what will be posted on each days. Please go and check it out and if you like the idea, feel free to follow :) Click below to have a look!
