In My World...

The kids and I play a game called "In My World."

We started it a few years back while having one of those days. We were running errands after school. Cranky kiddies. Pouring rain. Crying in the back seat. Paying bills. I mean, it was really a fantastic afternoon. Instead of fight against the tiredness and tears, I just said, "In my world, I never have to pay bills. Your turn, Niamh." Niamhy said something she'd like in her make believe world, And then Philly. We went round and round and round.  Before I knew it, we were pulling in the driveway full of giggles-- our afternoon from you know where looking a lot brighter!

In my world, I have long, colorful hair that is already done when I wake up in the morning...and a dog that listens to me...and no wash...and great legs...and a little cottage with a fireplace in the middle of a big field filled with wildflowers...and we live simply and peacefully.

 In Niamh's world, she has a pet manatee that fits in her pocket, and a castle with a room for everyone in our family...and butterflies in her hair...and a handsome prince. Who looks like a boy named Justin.

And in Philly's world, he just drives really fast mustangs. That is what he says for every turn. It's kinda funny:)!

 So, of course,the game makes a great Smash page. It's all for fun and using imagination...which translates well into scrapbooking!

And I think a girl becomes an 'official' Smasher when the book poofs out and closing it is impossible:). So...I might just be official:).

And when it comes down to it, I wouldn't change anything about my imperfect, messy world. 
Although, the thought of waking up with gorgeous hair every morning does sound pretty nice;). 

So, what's in your world?

  3. This is gorgeous Krista! I love the dies and all the buttons. Beautiful work as always. I love your blog, probably one of the few I visit daily. It's my dose of inspiration from your creations to your fashion style. I love it all!

  4. Looks like you are really enjoying the Smashing - I resisted the pun of having a Smashing Time, well almost. In my world I could share my creativity with my Mum for I know she'd be thrilled with where I've come to with working with paper, pencils & ink. She'd see where her little gift of a craft kit has taken me.
    What would I change - I'm learning to be content with what God gives & just knowing He'll take me through whatever.

    Certainly there are things I'd change & I'd like to have done things differently but then I'd be different & wouldn't have learnt what I have the hard way.

  19. You remind me so much of my mom! She used to make up games like this for my brother and I, and she would let us wear anything we wanted. lol I once wore a Barbie costume to church!

    In my world, I have my PhD in Kitten Psychology. I live in a two story wooden house that changes colors to fit my mood surrounded by flowers and trees. In the mornings, I garden. After lunch, I see kittens for therapy sessions. At night, I have tea and listen to the forest creatures serenade me (they play string instruments).

  21. Love the Smash book idea and your game is adorable, my teenagers might think I've gone mad if I play this in the car LOL! In my world I would be Tinkerbell zipping over the Magic Kingdom every night at the fireworks parade, there would be no need to cook, clean, washing etc. and I could create all day long, now look what you have started tee hee, take care, Doreen x

  24. You are one very talented lady. I love how you are just you. I'm so glad I found your etsy store.

    In my world everyone would love Jesus, it would be a happier place. All the military would be home safe and sound. And I would never have to leave my creative room that would be organized so I could create with out searching.
