Pop Up Mickey

I am supposed to be making four cards for a customer,  instead I am trying to get some ideas out of my head. This is going to be such a long night! I just can't focus. In the meantime I did complete this pop up card that I have been picturing for a while now. Simple Stories Say Cheese line is the most versatile Disney line I have ever seen. Shout out to Simple Stories!

Marriage at First Sight

So has anyone been following this show? I just heard about it and am trying to catch up on it now.  Basically these people signed up to participate in an arranged marriage. It is done pretty scientifically with  several different types of therapists conducting the interviews and matching the couples. The interesting thing is that two of the couples are still together and only one of the couples decided to divorce at the end of the experiment. Interestingly enough the couple to divorce is the black couple. I mention their race because I wonder when they were matched did the experts take cultural differences into consideration. In looking at the interviews I immediately saw that they were both very head strong people, which I thought would be a clash. He is also ex-military and not that it is a bad trait, I have found most military men are very domineering and this young lady did not look like she would take being dominated. The funny part is they both said those are traits that they are looking for but I think sometimes people are not honest about what they want in a partner. Like I run into a lot of men who say they want a settled woman but in all reality being settled gets boring and then they use that as an excuse to cheat I might not necessarily agree with the science of matchmaking but the romantic in me still believes in love at first sight. What do you think?

Back is Beautiful

Oh wow, it happened again. My mojo left me and refused to come back. I tried everything to get it back but it did not want to reconcile. I tried, candy, flowers,  poetry. ....nothing worked. Finally after months of ignoring me, my mojo finally admitted to missing me too.  Soo we talked,  and laughed as we flipped through layouts reflecting on all of our good times and in the end we decided to get back together.  I mean we had to think of the supplies, right? So I am back ready to cut, paste, and create.  I am going to try to catch up on some blog surfing too and start getting ready for a couple of craft fairs. Whew, maintaining these relationships is work, lol. In the meantime here is a glass I did, hoping to sell these at a craft fair soon. I have lots of ideas swimming around in my crazy head.  And FYI if you ever start to miss me too much, you can always find me on Instagram, screen name - phillyscraps.
