Pretty Morning

 We finally had a sunny morning and everything was covered in ice crystals. I ran around town taking a few photos. It was like someone sprinkled glitter on the trees.

I did It!!

I signed up for the She Art Workshop!! I am so excited to try this. Today or tomorrow I am making a trip to Michael's for art supplies - paints, brushes and Mod Podge! That will be fun. I will share my progress as I go so stay tuned!

Rob's new Wheels

Today Dh made good on his promise. Because Rob has been on the Dean's List at college for the past two years, he got to trade his old car in for a newer used car. He has been looking around since December. Well today Rob and Mike went looking. Sure enough, I got a call that they bought one! It is a Buick LaCross and Rob loves it! And, yes, I already scrapped it!


Being Creative Every day!

Recently I started  following Tracy's blog
http://www.tracywburgos.typepad.com/

Tracy has been sharing her art journal and encouraging us to Do Something Creative Everyday with her. Well, I finally put the scrapping aside and attempted my own She Art. It was so much fun to do. So today I tried again. For the most part, I like the result but am already thinking of what I would change:) For example - why did I stamp the butterfly in black??? So not a good choice:) I have got to let go of the Math and Science side of me! I need to forget symmetry, be freer, and not be afraid! Maybe if I keep at it those things will get easier.

Tuesday Trigger -Moxie Fab World

This is my first time completing the Tuesday Trigger at http://www.moxiefabworld.com/
Just love the colors and design of  this couch/room. Here is my take using that photo for inspiration. I might have to see if the lighting is better later - is a bit dark and cloudy this morning. My kid's smiles just make me smile:)

Christy Tomlinson

I just adore the art that Christy Tomlinson creates!!
http://christytomlinson.typepad.com
I have been itching to try this but I am so not artistic. (That gene skipped me!) Well, I finally made an attempt tonight. Since I can't paint, I created my girl using scraps of scrapbook and book papers. I painted th background paper and added stamps and doodles. I am quite proud of what I made. Sorry if it looks wet - I was so excited to get it posted that I did not wait for the decopague glue to dry:)

Ever have a layout

Ever finish a layout that you just love? This is one of my faves! Jen was invited to a birthday party where the theme was Mad Men. They were supposed to dress like the people in the show do. The girls found wonderful dresses and glasses! Just love how Bo Bunny's Petal Pushers papers are perfect for this!
