Property photography in Falkirk and central Scotland

As being a woman who continues to be scrapbooking for over 7 many years now, I’ve pretty a great collection of recollections all preserved in different albums with nice tales to go as well as photos. I Appreciate these albums?they really are a tangible piece of my past. But my husband?well, let us just state that if he experienced an opportunity, we might warm our residence with a few of them this wintertime!

My husband when asked me just how much I’ve spent on all of this things. You understand, I really have no concept, but it really is possibly in the $1000’s of dollars. It is sort of embarrassing to think I have that a lot invested, but if my grandchildren can appear by way of an album I made and discover slightly about me, it really is SO really worth it!

Now, as towards the question of why men don’t “get” scrapbooking?I’ll give you 5 reasons.
1. You know the feeling you will get after you open up the doorway of one’s neighborhood scrapbook or craft store? It’s a little, but unforgettable “rush” to know you will be about to embark on the purchasing adventure! Now, while your husband is in the automobile, listening to talk radio, waiting for you to emerge, all he’s thinking is, “I speculate just how much she’s spending THIS time!” They see a lot of items of paper and stickers which are WAY more than priced. We see the latest patterned papers and sticker elaborations. Plus, how several men do you know that actually enjoy to shop? Need to have I say much more?

2. That prospects me to my subsequent cause: scrapbook lingo. I informed my husband about how I like to use particular elaborations on my pages. The appear he gave me was in all probability similar to the appear he will get when he talks about hunting or anything car! Scrapbooking has its personal language that males just don’t comprehend.

3. Crops are a large component of scrapbooking that is outside the comprehension of most men. Why would any individual want to get together having a bunch of other women, cut up their photos, create what happened inside the property photography onto paper and stick them into books that, in case you mess them up, you will be subjected to tortures yet unidentified to mankind? Guys have by no means truly understood the need females need to be with other girls, no matter the justification. Scrapbooking is simply a further one of these excuses!

4. Now, scrapbook retreats acquire the crop-confusion to a whole new level. Why females would need to go away the convenience of their very own mattress to go rest on a difficult mattress to reduce Additional papers and Extra photos? And invest more in the family’s tricky attained dollars? Men just don’t understand why we cannot get as significantly scrapbooking completed at property with our 3 12 months olds continuously running off with our scissors, our 5 yr olds applying the tape runner within the cat and our teens raiding our sticker stash to spell “I enjoy Parker” on their notebooks!

5. A celebration for scrapbook things? Are you kidding? Indeed, even the direct sales get-togethers really are a mystery. I suppose the title seriously throws most guys off. Soon after all, what sort of celebration, within the conventional sense, does one leave with less income in your wallet? A celebration is for free food, not investing income within their minds. They miss the purpose of chatting with close friends, learning a brand new technique or playing with a new instrument. It is all just frivolity to them.

You understand, now that I think about it, why do we invest $0.sixty on one sheet of paper, $12 on a contraption that may be essentially a glorified glue adhere and $30 on a picture album? You know the answer! WE Appreciate IT! Scrapbooking is definitely an addictive pastime and, males, that you are permitted to affix us, however you much better understand the lingo and no sharing my tape runner!

 

Royal couple holiday on exclusive island in the Seychelles

Last month’s Royal wedding dominated the world’s media in  way that only a Royal romance can . Now newly marrieds the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are honeymooning in the Seychelles. Despite attempts by the Palace to keep it secret , news has come out that Princess Diana’s son  Prince William and Kate are in the Seychelles . They spent a week in the Indian Ocean archipelago, on the island of Desroches, in August 2007. William is reported to have told islanders that the trip was the best holiday he had had. Desroches is the main island of the Amirantes group, an exclusive setting well beyond the reach of most honeymoon couples. The archipelago boasts 115 islands. This might show William and Kate’s relationship is on a more equal footing than his parents’. Charles and Diana’s post-wedding travels in 1981 – Broadlands in Hampshire, family home of the Mountbattens, followed by a Mediterranean cruise on the royal yacht, then on to Balmoral with his family – smacked of a husband calling the shots. Whether the Amirantes will be such an aphrodisiac is another question. William was born in 1982, eight months after the couple returned.

Homage to Damien Hirst – Butterfly Man prints by Sir Peter Blake

Sir Peter Blake has published a new set of prints, Homage to Damien Hirst – Butterfly Man.
According to the Blake : ‘Damien Hirst has used butterflies in a lot in his work, and it was pointed out that ‘the butterfly man’ owes more than a little to his work, so I was happy to dedicate him in homage to Damien. I am an enormous admirer of Damien’s work.’
The new works use vintage postcard images as backdrops to his collage of the butterfly man, dozens of butterflies and an assortment of eclectic characters from the miscellaneous print paraphernalia that Blake has hoarded over the years.

The Butterfly Man, Hollywood captures the golden age of Hollywood glamour with  the Hollywood hills and  mini-mansions. In the foreground along with the butterfly man are numerous Hollywood legends including Charlie Chaplin, James Dean, Laurel & Hardy, Errol Flynn, Elvis, Marilyn and Judy Garland.

Blake returns to home ground for Butterfly Man, Eastbourne, celebrating the glory of the British seaside holiday. The butterfly man orchestrates his pets in front of the statue of Saigo Takamori (famous samurai) in The Butterfly Man, Tokyo, along with Japanese ladies in kimonos and visitors such as African tribesmen and a European lady in formal costume. The butterfly man also travels to North Africa, where he releases his butterflies in the souk at Tunis and finally, he goes to Venice and the piazza San Marco.

Each print is a silkscreen in 24 colours and 2 glazes on paper measuring 32.5 x 29.5 inches, from a signed edition of 100. 75 from the edition are being released as a boxed set priced at £7,500, and the remaining 25 prints are available individually at £1,800 each. The Hollywood and Venice images might sell out pretty quickly, so  interested buyers should  move fairly quickly.
