the world according to Jake...7/12 edition

while watching max and Ruby, I commented on Ruby's pretty purple dress (which was totally sarcasm...because purple is hideous) Jake looked down and furiously patted himself from head to toe in pseudo dismay; "Where is *my* purple dress??" I asked him if he'd like me to buy him a purple dress and with a wave of the hand and appropriate eyeroll said "No mommy, I'm not pretty enough!"

playing in the backyard, stomping bugs; "Mom, I totally (without a doubt his favorite adverb :p) GOT that bug!" "Yup Jake, you like bugs, huh?" "Yeah, I'm a great bugger..."

Truer words have never been spoken...

and ps, if you're going to rip a chainsaw sounding fart out of your trucker ass on the faux leather chair in the middle of a quiet IHOP while your trucker buddy defiles the IHOP bathroom for 15 minutes (entering said bathroom with the paper tucked securely under arm) expect that the 4 year old in the room will call you on it. Loudly.

pps, thanks for all the kind words about Bonita :)

ppps, I have some goodies to give away...stuff I bought that I just know I'll never use. And my simplified scrapping deems it necessary that I get rid of them. So, scrap a page or 15 using some old stuff. I know "old" is subjective so go through your stash and just use something you've had for awhile and post a link to it in the comment section on this post. One entry for every layout you do! I'll draw a winner before I go to CHA so you have a few days. Hop to it!

over and out.


  1. one of few regrets I have...not writing down the funny stuff Alex said in her early years. My next one will have a crap load of journals:)

    hmmm...old stuff huh. I haven't bought anything in a while so I guess I have some old stuff laying around:P

  2. ha ha ha ha
    I am laughing at your witty little dude
    and at the though of scrapping before CHA.
    both are equally funny.

    you never fail to make me laugh out loud. seriously. TOTALLY! while i agree with you that purple is disgusting, it is on jenna's top three favorite color list right now. pink and clear being the other two. yes, clear. i have THAT child. off to dig through my stash of old things. wonder if i can find a paperkin and give it a purple dress?

    That little Jake is a stitch! I am cracking up about the purple. Umm who has time to scrap before CHA. I don't have time to pack but know I have to get it done. Have a great time and lets scrap again soon!

  7. I think Jake and Connor should get together- they could be an act!

  14. Hi Erica ...
    I'm coming out of "lurkdom" to say hello and how tell you how much inspiration I gain from your work. I've loved your scrapbook style for a long time and love to see that you're now sharing in another passion of mine ... knitting. I'm about 1/3 of the way through one of the tank sweaters in the Spring Interweave Knits magazine. Great job on the Bonita!! I say show it off!!

    As for scrapbooking with my "old" supplies ... well as you said it's kinda relative, but I have had a burst of creative energy and have made several layouts from my monthly scrapbook kits that have been sitting for many months.

    I posted three of them on my blog:

    As well as this mini book (which I used a blank book that I bought FOREVER ago):
    So jealous of you going to CHA, have a wonderfully inspiring time!
