On the first day, God created the dog and said:
'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'
The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?'
So God agreed.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said:
'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'
The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?'
And God agreed.
On the third day, God created the cow and said:
'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'
The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'
And God agreed again.
On the fourth day, God created man and said:
'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'
But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'
'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'
So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.

so anyway ~ i actually started my amazing journey of scrapbooking using solely 12 X 12 layouts and albums. but soon after my journey began, i came in contact with my latest obsession ~ the mini album!! so often when i am creating a mini album in the craft area of my favorite scrapbook store, i am asked by customers ~ whom are looking for inspiration ~ "who is that mini album for". my response?? "ME". people seem to think that if its a mini, its automatically a gift. now dont get me wrong, i do give mini albums as gifts ~ and with out fail, they are a tear jerking hit, but i mostly create minis for myself ~ or me and my family. and when i do create a mini for a gift, i create two at a time,,, one for me ~ and one for the lucky recipient of my latest creation. that goes for classes that i take too, i will buy an extra kit if i feel like someone else might want a copy. the next question?? "well, where do you store them?"..... scroll down and i will show you a few spots that have become homes for my mini albums......here is my entry way to my house. we have the typical entry way table, and on the bottom shelf, you will notice a little bird cage. i loved this little bird cage in the store (target) and knew it would work perfectly to showcase my favorite (at the time ~ because i do rotate) mini albums.
a candice mclean mini album class happens to be at the front of the little stash at the moment.
and of course, because i also like to place them here or there, that is exactly where they land... on my desk, or on top of my printer, sometimes they stay put there for a while, and thats okay too.
so ~ there is no need to be scared of the mini album any more. they are the new up and coming trend that is sure to stick around for years to come!!
