friday the 13th.

Today I thought, “Why is Friday the 13th deemed an unlucky day?” Well, what better to do then to seek an answer! I decided to research the topic, and upon doing so, I found some interesting facts courtesy of Wikipedia. (I love random information!)

  • The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.
  • An estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day.
  • According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a “Friday the 13th” superstition before the 19th century.
I’m not very superstitious, so I don’t think today is some sort of doomsday. Should I knock on wood for saying that?! 😉

On another note, let’s talk fun!

Every now and then, people like to pose for photos. I’ll admit to posing for the camera sometimes; I may not like the photo, but I still think it can be fun. Besides, it’s always fun to look back on older photos. With all of the technology out there, it’s easy to capture random photos nowadays. Here are some recent photos of me:

            

I’ve been on a roll with creating layouts recently. Yesterday, I picked up some Studio Calico to work with. This company has become one of my recent favorites. I love the simplicity and modern look of everything they put out. Plus, I love the pops of color on their papers.

Yup, the only layout I created yesterday. Boo! I wanted to do more, but alas I’ll settle for that one. Hopefully I’ll be lucky on the 13th and create a fabulous layout at the crop tonight, hehe!

A little wall hanging in the shop to boost my mojo.
