This week we were talking to our son and he was going over the calendar saying:
him: this Sunday is Family Day at school, remember?
me: but isn't your Family Day always in November?
him: MOM it is ALREADY November!!!
me:Gosh...when did it happen...
Any whoo this should give you an idea of where I am, I do hope I get back to it all next week.
As I was looking on blogosphere to be motivated I went to OUAS to see the new one and I guess I had to play. What a good way to get my mojo back tha to answer this weeks riddle:
When and why you started scrapping?
here's the sketch
well this got my creative juices flowing and here is what I came up with, as always not 2 sentences but 2 pages of it...and please bear with me as my last post was so long ago and in order to please the date I am posting 11 photos!!!
here is my journaling I used a pin to hold the 2 pages I wrote
and here they are with all I had to say
a close up of my subject, hmmm
and the full page, the rectangle was not fitting in so I went with all circles
Now Christmas is my favorite time of the year, by October last year I was finished with my ornaments, had stitched runners, quilts, pillows and even a tree rug! this year is another story with my trip and everything going on around me this is my first Christmas project!!! As I looked around Webster's pages had a home decor challenge and I made this for my entry:
It is a rotary calendar of the days before Christmas, there are 2 dials on the right and left for you to turn around so it matches the countdown! It was a past season item I saw that i will reveal later on on this post
some Spanish for you, LOL days left for Christmas
I used the Winter Fairy Tale Collection as I was in LOVEEEE with it, who could resist those pinks, purples, turquoise and greens? not me for sure! I created a town scene, and made mountains with snow, glittery snow some bling and the tinsel trims they made, sparkle, sparkle how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
I cut all the apers to make the pretty banner, there are all kinds of shapes just waiting to be discovered in those papers, let me tell you!
And can you spot the cameo??? those are GLORIOUS, my faves!!!
Here is the whole piece
Ahhhh, humble begginings...
Cheers to better endings
I do hope this inspires you to work!
Have a beautiful weekend and I will see you all next week ;)
