Blogging For Scrapbookers

~CLICK HERE to enter my Giveaway~

Hi all!  I've decided to start a new adventure and wanted to share it with you.  OK, first up...who knows Shimelle?  She's one of the most inspiring scrappers and bloggers around.  I decided to take her class: Blogging For Scrapbookers

I just finished prompt 1 for the class and wanted to blog some of my goals for 2011 and my blog.  I use my blog as my own personal journal.  If someone asks "hey Amber, how long have you had ducks?"  (remember I live on a farm) I simply pull up that blog post and have dates and fresh memories!  Perfect for someone who is busy and not great at scrapping at the moment!  I tend to "scrap later", sometimes years later.  What's important is that I keep my details correct and eventually do scrap it.  So my goals are to share more of my farm life and the fun details that I sometimes leave out.  I want to show more techniques and tutorials of things I make, because when I blog surf I'm always thinking "how'd they make that???".  I guess my goal is to add more details : ) 

For prompt 1 we are also encouraged to share a picture.

This is the "breeze way" at our smallest barn where the chickens and turkeys hang out on hot days.  They love playing in the dirt and chasing bugs.  The large weird looking bird is "Shanana" our female turkey.  We bought her at the stock sale a few months ago.  Shanana came to us with a few disabilities and in poor condition.   After high protein food and TLC, she's already laying eggs!  We may have baby turkeys in our future!  Shanana is definitely unique! 

That's all of my farm story for tonite. I felt bad not leaving you with a bit of craftiness, so here's a October Afternoon "mini" I'm working on.  Like the curtains???

Found you through BFS. OMG! Turkeys! My parents used to have turkeys. The "domesticated" turkeys mixed with the wild turkeys. They would all hang near the house and would chase you if you went outside. I am so glad they all eventually went away!
