Things like cardmaking (40 shower invitations for my niece's wedding shower). I like that this doesn't look like your typical wedding shower card. Thanks to my younger sister, we got these done in a day once they were colored!
And working in my Soulbook that we started at the Scrap Cellar. This is a book that is good to pick up whenever you start doubting your self worth, or when you lack the courage to take on something totally new. It has statements in the book that truly speak to your soul. That truly make you aware of how awesome you really are. Anyway, the goal was to finish by the next time we got together. And that time is coming fast! We used old boxes, lots of masking tape, and acrylic paint to create this baby. Then added our "speak to the soul" statements. Here are some of the pages I created.
Oh, and I put together a slide show with music for my girlfriend's husband. It was his 50th birthday.
These are some of the things that have kept me busy enough to not be able to have a solid idea of what to blog about. I figure now that these are done, maybe I can get back to giving you a little piece of my mind occasionally. (Not that I can afford to give it away!!)
Monday evening, while my neighbors stay at home and hand out candy to those 6 month old, candy craving infants, I will be headed to my daughter's where I get to party with two SuperHeroes!! Spiderman and Wonder Woman! Pictures will follow, to be sure!
Oh, and one more thing before I go...My friend, Leanne over at From Chaos Comes Happiness has opened an Etsy shop with canvasses, prints, bookmarks and greeting cards. Many of the items feature Annalee, a character Leanne has developed. (I swear this is Leanne's alter-ego.) She's also got a line called Random Thoughts From Chaos that have beautiful, inspirational thoughts. Check it out. Let Leanne know I sent you. (I LOVE hearing her voice when she calls all excited that someone I know purchased from her shop).
Okay, I'll try to show up a little more often here. Have a happy Halloween!
