I know I am a terrible blogger :) But that is just fine with me:) I do it when I feel like it and have some "worthy" of posting! Been busy the last couple of months but have done a few projects in the midst of all the chaos! This one is going to be full of pics! so lets get cracking!
First off, I was lucky enough to be involved in the "Sheart" workshop taught by Christy Tomlinson. It has bee amazing!!! It is a three week course but you have 3 months to do it in, so I have been working at my own pace. I have learned SO many cool tricks and have put some of them into the other projects I have finished as well! I have completed 2 "girls" but only have pic's of my second one....I gave my first away to a good friend the moment I finished it! So here is my sweet girl!!! I hope you love her as much as me!!!!
Next is a picture I made for my a horribly empty living room wall. I thrifted a HUGE sofa sized picture and ripped it out of the frame. Painted it white and then went to town on the "canvas" I am so happy how this turned out It took me over a month to say that I am DONE with it! Lots of layers, textures, paint and ink! The picture is the cover of a old piece of music titled "Venitian Moon" that I have had for several years. I bought it becuase I loved the look of it, but when I played it on the piano I wasn't crazy about the tune. SO I don't feel guilty about ruining a piece of sheet music. I thrifted the large silver "moon" (acutally a neclace brooch combo) and added a little ink to distress it. It is suppose to symbolize the moon, becuase of the title that was showing at the time but ended up being camoflauged under a few layers of goodness, but I still like to call it a moon! So hope you like it! BTW the shelf isn't exactly have what I want on it, but I haven't yet fouND the right "something".
I think that this is enough for this post....I still have my one last one I am working on right now, but it isn't done yet....so I think I will wait....maybe I will give a sneak peek later! Thanks for looking!!!! And just a quick shout out to Christy Tomlinson, she is an AMAZING teacher and has turned my creative juices on again! Thank you Christy, or in her own words...."thanks sweets!!!"

So I sit here with a nasty sinus cold but thought to meself...HEY get up and blog your valentines day decor that you are finishing up. I will admist that I am NOT a huge v-day decorator. Never have but my hunny asked me why I don't do anything for any other holidays except for christmas. SO I am trying to do a few things for each little holiday....I will be an equal opportunity decorator! Unfortunately I am sans money right now...good thing for a stash of paper and umm...."stuff" (aka to my hunny as junk)...so my inspiration for my decor this years vday....I *heart* books....and kind of a tribute to Elsie Flannigan....oh I LOVE doodles.....they shall NEVER be out of style for me !!! SO here is what I have done as of now :) If I am sick for much longer I either my mind might totally fly the coop or I will finish more putzy stuff for the house ;)!!!!

Here is my new layout for the Scrapping the Music challenge. I chose the colors from watching the video. I hope that it isn't conceited of me but I realllllly like this! It just was so fun to create and I just felt like I let myself get out of my comfort zone! Thanks Bob Dylan, you inspired me!!!!!! HOpe you like it! BTW the journalling on the bottom reads: Not so long ago I couldn't Even order off a menu without first asking advice and now I have found myself! Somehow I have found my freedom and my voice! I have shed the chains of what people think!
I KNOW I KNOW since MAY??? Really? Well yes really. Life got very busy and I didnt get much time for scrapping! But it is a new year and I have started up again!! I found this AWESOME blog called Scrapping the music! I LOVE IT! I decided to enter the challenge this month! I have been wanting to do some challenges and I thought that this would be perfect for me. I love music and I find so much inspiration from it. The song is Bob Dylan's Things Have Changed. I had NEVER heard it and wasn't completly sold on it. I haven't really listened to Bob Dylan too much but I LOVED THE SONG! It really set home to me how I have changed so much from the girl that I used to be! The lyric "I used to care but things have changed" really hit me. I have struggled my whole life worried about what my family would think about the decisions I made, the curse of being the baby of so many! But somehow I have broke free of that! I think that adopting Saul was the first time that I broke out, I didnt care what anyone thought, I just KNEW that he was supposed to be mine! So I hope you enjoy this Layout and I ask everyone to listen to the song and read the lyrics! I have become a Bob Dylan fan !! GO BOBBY!!!!
