Quick and simple scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is one hobby that produces great results. Unlike other kinds of hobbies that only sharpens the skills but do not produce anything concrete, with scrapbooking, you will not only develop your creative skills but you will also create great pieces of artwork in the process.

This is perhaps why scrapbooking is one of the hottest hobbies in the country. Testament of how big it is, are the numerous shows and magazines that have cropped up on the subject. There are also annual fairs and conventions just on scrapbooking. In the Internet, there are websites, webzines and webrings that are devoted to the endeavor.

Scrapbooking might seem daunting at first especially to a person who has no artistic or creative bones in his body. Cutting, sticking, and designing can be a nightmare to a person who is not really much into the practice. Some people even find the prospect of putting together one page of artistic work too much for them to handle.

But making a scrapbook is not so hard. In fact, it can be the easiest thing in the world especially with the tools and gadgets that are coming out and being sold in craft stores. There are now scissors that cut lines with designs in them. There are punchers that do not only punch holes but punches different shapes. Craft stores also sell stickers that scrapbookers can stick into their pages for that more finished touch.

If you just know what to do, where to go and how to go about it, scrapbooking can be a breeze. Below are just some of the ideas and tips on creating quick and simple scrapbook pages.

Buy prepared pages

Scrapbooking products have become more and more sophisticated these days and all are aimed to make scrapbooking as simple as possible. If you feel that you don’t have the talent to put together one page even if your life depended on it or you just don’t have the time to create a layout that will look very nice with the photo that you are thinking of putting; then you can buy those prepared scrapbook pages that already have layouts and designs. All you have to do is to add the finishing touches like the photo and some accessories if you feel like it.

These pages are often thematic. For instance, there are pages that can be used in a wedding scrapbook while others can be used in a baby shower or in a kid’s birthday party. Often, there will be slots where you can put photos and other notes.

Stick them up

Another set of innovative products that has made the lives of scrapbookers worthwhile is the scrapbook stickers. Like the scrapbook pages, these stickers are also oftentimes thematic. Still, the themes are not only limited to occasions and special events.

For instance, in addition to the usual themes of birthdays, christmas, baby showers, weddings and the like, there are stickers that will also depict Christian sayings, kiddie images, business matters. girly stuff and sports. There are a lot to choose from.

These stickers are great in decorating a page that you have already out together. It often adds color and aesthetic appeal to the page without the hassles of drawing, cutting and pasting. All the scrapbookers have to do is to just buy the stickers, peel the sticker off and stick it to the page. Real easy that even a child can do it.

I am the owner of two miniature dachshunds who share my house and home. Many dog owners would rephrase that and instead call me the human who shares the house with the dogs. Dogs are indeed wonderful creatures.

Recent experiences have made me reflect upon and notice things about dogs and their presence in my life. I grew up with dogs so was taught at a young age to appreciate and treat animals with loving care. I recall clearly watching our pet Boston Terrier comfort my little brother who sat on the floor crying about something.

My friend came over to walk the dogs today and as she stood on the doorstep Peanut, my 12 pound dachshund stood up to lick her face. I belong to a PLR site for dog articles and there have been several written on this topic – all as if this was a bad thing. This got me thinking…..

Both dogs lick my face when I’m in bed and I call this ”kisses”. Peanut will go so far as to stand on my chest with all four paws so he can give my full face a wash including my eyes. This usually only happens every couple weeks yet I endure because he’s my dog. Bark goes after my husband more because the only time he gets to lick his face is in bed whereas I’ll sit with them during the day.

My dogs also jump up on me when I walk in the door and will do this with others they know. Again, the articles say this is bad and that you should train your dog to quietly accept a short pat on the head as a way of greeting. When my two dogs have been apart for as little as ten minutes they greet each other very enthusiastically. Why shouldn’t they greet me and my friends in the same fashion.

I’ve decided that regardless of what the articles may say, I’m all for having my dachshunds jump up and lick my face. First of all, they’re just being dogs and second of all they are my friends and they don’t know any other way of saying hello. I figure if they can make me smile and laugh it can’t be all bad!

The Cat Whisperer

The Cat Whisperer

 

A cat whisper is somewhat similar to a dog or horse whisperer, although cat whisperers relate quite well with cats.  These types of people are unusually lucky and very successfully with cats.  In most cases, a cat will be abandoned or just show up at someone’s door.  In this event, the cat will adopt this individual as the cat whisperer.

Often times, alley cats and black cats will show up at someone’s door and decide to move into their homes.  This can be a result of abandonment, or the cat’s family moving away and simply leaving the cat behind.  Sometimes, the cat may decide that he likes someone else’s home better and decide to move there instead of staying with his owner.

 

A lot of people will tell you that a cat whisperer can be thought of as a therapist for cats.  Almost all cat whisperers haven’t have any type of training, what they know just seems to come to them naturally.  These types of people understand the way a cat thinks and knows how to work with the cat to achieve the results they want.  Even though many think of a cat whisperer as a therapist, it actually couldn’t be further from the truth.

Cats who have been abused or mistreated, often times won’t respond to anyone but a cat whisperer.  Although others may have tried to help the cat, it will only make matters worse by making the cat feel scared and afraid.  In most cases, these cats will end up in a pound.  This is very tragic, as the cats have already endured more than they ever should have.  A majority of the cats who have been abused were once loved pets.  Along the way, they were abandoned, mistreated, attacked by dogs, and in some cases tortured.

Cats who have been treated unfairly often times won’t trust anyone. They are often times confused, in a lot of pain, and not sure what they should do.  Like humans, cats feel pain.  Those that have been physically abused are a sad sight indeed.  Emotionally damaged cats may appear to be in perfect health on the outside, although their emotions are a wreck.  Emotionally abused cats are much harder to get through to, especially if they were stray cats to begin with.

Cat whisperers on the other hand, can communicate with physically and emotionally abused cats.  Cats know who they will choose to be their cat whisperer, which is normally an individual they sense trust with.  Cat whisperers are common with cats, although most people have never heard of them before.  Even though a cat whisperer may be able to communicate better with cats, it will still take time to heal a cat that has been abused.

Allergic to Pets

Are you a cat owner who suspects that you may be allergic to pets?  If you do have a cat allergy, you may be wondering what you should.  If you are looking for guidance, you will want to continue reading on, as a few helpful tips for pet owners who are allergic to their pets are outlined below.

One of the first things that you will want to do if you suspect that you are suffering from a cat allergy or another pet allergy is to examine your symptoms.  Do you find yourself sneezing, with a runny nose, with nasal congestion, or postnasal drip when you are around your cat or cats?  Also, do you sometimes develop a skin rash after close contact or do you find it difficult to breath without wheezing?  If that is the case, you may also have a cat allergy.  If that is the case, it may be a wise idea to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider.  A doctor can not only prescribe you medication, but they may be able to help you determine whether or not you truly have a pet allergy.

As for how you can seek relief, the best way is to remove your cat or cats from your home.  Unfortunately, this isn’t so easy for many cat owners to do.  If you cannot find a good home for your cat or cats, like with a trusted friend or family member, you do not need to worry.  There are still a number of steps that you can take to seek relief.

Not cuddling with your cat or cats is a great way to reduce you symptoms that are due to a cat allergy.  Close contact with a cat is one of the many ways that skin rashes, like those that resemble an eczema outbreak develop.  As hard as it can be to love and appreciate your animals from afar, you may need to do so, especially if your allergy symptoms are severe.

In addition to not cuddling with your cat or cats, it is also advised that you keep them off of your furniture.  This includes your beds, reclining chairs, or couches.  This is particularly important if you are known to lie down or nap on your living room furniture.  Covers are a nice alternative.  Should you choose to use cloth covers, which are more attractive, be sure to wash them every few days or whenever you notice a large accumulation of cat hair.

Another tip involves keep your cat or cats out of your bedroom.  As it was previously stated, keep your cat or cats off of your bed.  This can help you sleep better at night.  But, just keeping your cat or cats out of your room in general is the best approach.  This is likely to result in relief, as the bedroom is one of the most common rooms in the home that we use; therefore, it is where you want to seek relief the most.

Vacuuming as much as possible is another great way to limit the number allergy symptoms that you may have due to your cat or cats.  Vacuuming can help to pick up some of the pet hair and pet dander that may be in your home. Vacuum cleaners that use HEPA filters come highly rated and recommended.  There are now also a number of vacuum cleaners that are marketed towards pet owners.  You may want to give these types of vacuum cleaners a close look.

An air purifier can also be used and should be used if you are allergic to your cat.  All air purifiers remove potentially harmful particles from the air.  This includes pet dander.  If you have a cat allergy, the removal of pet dander from the air can be a great source of relief.  You can research and find air purifiers that are marketed towards those who suffer form allergies online.  As with vacuum cleaners, air purifiers that use HEPA technology, often produce the best results.

Angels and Spirit Guides

Even when you feel as though you are completely alone, there are Divine Companions who are always with you.  Before your incarnation they chose to accompany you through your lifetime- from the moment of your first breath- until your last.  Spirit Guides are highly evolved beings that have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and are now serving as teachers and guides to further elevate their vibrations.  They are as “real” as you are- they are just vibrating at another level and reside in another plane of existence.

They work to guide you by working through your dreams and intuition. That quiet voice you hear is often the voice of your teachers and guides. They may also make themselves known to you through signs and symbols.  For me, when I am at a crossroads in my life or journeying though a personal or emotional challenge- I find feathers everywhere.  I also see feather tattoos, hawks and hear certain songs.   It is a reminder for me to be still and listen to the guidance of my own personal guides. The feathers are representative of the energy of my guides- one being a powerful Shaman and the others are from the Angelic Realm.

Some individuals have one guide and others have multitudes- much of this depends on the path and purpose of your life.  For instance, a teacher/professor may have several guides- one to guide them through the academic nature of their profession and others to assist them with the great emotional requirements of performing such an important task.  A policeman, fireman, or soldier will often have a “team” of warriors guiding and protecting them.  Much of who your guides are indicative of your own personal journey though life.

Spirit guides are almost never a loved one who has passed away.  Although our loved ones stay with us in spirit and we can contact them, they do not serve the same role as a “spirit guide”.  Some individuals have Archangels and Angels as spirit guides who are always with them.  Yet, the presence of Angels does not always mean they are your spirit guides. Angels can be called in times of distress to assist you for a short time. If you have an Archangel or Angel as a guide, chances are your mission in life is a complex one. Through my experience with being a psychic reader and spiritual teacher- I have found that individuals with a challenging life path often have Angels as spirit guides.

Your spirit guide is always with you, whether you acknowledge their presence or not. You cannot call them to you or send them away- they are part of you and your journey.  However, you can choose to gain the knowledge of who they are and what their role in your life is.  You can interact with your spirit guides in a more proactive way.  If you want to know who your guides are, just ask.  Get in a quiet and meditative space and ask that they reveal themselves to you. Do not get discouraged if you do not figure it out right away. Beings from the spiritual realm often communicate through signs and symbols.  Once you ask- you must trust your own wisdom.  Pay attention to the pictures that appear in your mind. If you see a man in a suit- stay with that- it could be he is a philosopher or scientist.  You may see a Native American Indian, a Buddhist Monk or you may see nothing at all.  Keep your mind and intuition open.  Pay attention to things that keep coming up after you have asked that they reveal who they are.  If you are having a challenge discovering who they are you can also contact a professional psychic/intuitive to assist you.

Working with your spirit guides can be an incredible tool for your own personal and spiritual growth. Unlike beings who are in the physical- their wisdom and advice is not influenced by the “world”.  They dwell in a higher vibrational plane and the mundane particulars of your situation are not relevant.  For example- if you seek guidance from your spirit guide regarding a relationship- they will lead you to focus on what you are learning, what you need to learn, what you are teaching your partner, and what is the true meaning of your relationship.  The fact that they leave the toilet seat up or are terrible at budgeting the household finances will be irrelevant.  The information that you will be provided with- will be actions that YOU can take to gain more understanding.  You can also ask your Spirit Guides to assist you in physical healing.  Before you go to sleep, ask that as you are sleeping- you receive healing.

You are never alone. Never.  Take faith in knowing and understanding that there is so much magic and mystery in this life. Just for a moment let the “world” disappear. Raise your vibration and allow the beautiful gifts of spirit wash over you.  Life is so much more than what we see.  Open your spiritual eyes and hearts and you will discover a world of wisdom, beauty and peace that you never knew existed.  Of course, you can always choose to not believe. It is always your choice. But, why not?  Why not step into another level of existence? Why not believe in magic? You do not have to announce it to the office, but you can embrace the wonders of spirit in your own heart. It will envelope you in a light of love and understanding- and will mysteriously transform you to a more connected and loving being.  Oh, what would they say at the water cooler then?
