GSO Blog!!

Woohoo!! I'm so happy! Funny thing is, it's only ever the pages I'm not keen on that make the GSO blog! I guess I have no idea what's good when it comes to my own pages! hahaha!

The journalling to go with this page...

I don't particularly like my house but I love my home...because of the people, possesions and memories in it.

A Tragic End

Well it seems that I am a bad maggot mother.
I forgot my little babies too much and now they have all died.
However I must be a good scientist as, in conclusion, I have discovered (by assumption) that maggots need air to live.
Yay for me.
Goodbye babies.

GSO Blog and a Special Page!!

Yay I got on the GSO Blog today with my Brat page using the new kit Daylicious by Kasia Designs and Kitty Designs!!

And this page is for the 'Ography' challenge at Deviant Scraps. I chose to make a biography of my fabulos friend Patty Anne and was even inspired to write a poem! Love ya PA!!

Oh lovely PA, with the gift of the gab,
She was dragged round the world doing gigs, taking jabs.
With a broken down camera and no laptop for fear
Of it being lost, she still seemed to appear
so happy and cheerful all times of the day,
braving floods, rain and crowds seeming cheeky and gay.
Yet we in the know, see the truth, for inside
The lovely PA was quite sad and would hide
The shocking withdrawals she was battling within
For the one thing she wanted, her one lustful sin,
Was to scrap for all hours of the day and the night
Yet her laptop was home, she was nowhere in sight,
of her digital papers and happy scrap space.
So she flew round the world with a smile on her face.

thanks for looking!

Scrapping Stuff!

So I've been scrapping a bit lately and thought I would post some of my (stranger) pages. :)

This one was made very late at night when I really should have been sleeping! lol

This one was for one of the speed scraps at TLP over iNSD

And this one was inspired by digi dare #176. the dare was to scrap about the different parts of your life. Mine is more about being trapped as a mother and being pulled in all different directions. But really it's not so bad in my life! lol

click for credits. And all of my LOs are in my DigiShopTalk gallery. TFL

My Fly Experiment

Okay so I started this last week and was documenting it at TLP...but I've decided it's a bit gross so anyone who is interested can follow it here instead!

I will keep all of the updates in this post so it is all together...and then just bump my blog each time I update...which should be every 2 or 3 days.

Monday 26th April 2010
9.30am: DH cooks bacon for a sandwich and leaves the mess for me.12pm: I clean up his mess and realise that he left some bacon in the pan.
Bacon has a pile of fly eggs on it.2pm: (after coming back from a walk) Collect bacon and fly eggs into a container for further observation.9pm: Take photo and decide to gross out TLP.

Tuesday 27th April

8am: Baby maggots are crawling around the container. approximately 1mm long

10.30pm: More maggots but still tiny. I'm starting to smell a smell.

Thursday 29th April

9am: I really didn't want to open the container today so here's a pic from the bottom. There are dozens of maggots above the bacon as well. They are between 1 and 2mm I guess and squirming constantly. It is really gross to watch their bodies rippling. hahaha!
Sat 1st may

9.30am: I went out to check the babies this morning and saw ants crawling all over the container and ants inside. I immediately assumed all the maggots would have been eaten, but after closer inspection I noticed that all the ants inside the container were dead. I have no idea why every single ant is dead. But the maggots are happy and getting all big and squirmy.

Thursday 6th May: So quite a few days back, I noticed that maggots were escaping from my little container. I had cut tiny slits with a knife for air but they were somehow getting through them. So the container got moved to a much bigger, air-tight container. I figured they should be fine if I opened it up every day or so.
And so for a couple of days they were fine but nothing much changed. And then I forgot about them!So I went to check them now and couldn't see any maggots! On closer inspection there were a few shrivelled up, dead ones on the lid...but not many. I finally noticed that the majority of my babies were huddled up together, hanging on for dear life under the original container. They seem to have shrunk slightly but are alive.
So I gave them some air and closed them up again. Let's hope I don't forget them again!BTW...sorry for the terrible pic. I couldn't get my hand to stay still and also this is through both layers of plastic.

Oh and of course you will be wanting to see the dead maggots. I mean duh..who wouldn't? Right? So here are 2 dead ones and one living. Enjoy.
