Happy Victoria Day Canada!

I'm enjoying my day even though it's cold and crappy out! I was able to make a couple more ATC's (could I be on a roll??)

It's funny, I saw Madonna's performance at the Billboard awards doing a tribute to Prince and all I could think of was "meh"... for one I was confused as to why she was covering "nothing compares to U", I thought she would have done a Prince song? And her recent shananigans with her dressing like she's in her twenties still and flashing that poor girl on stage just brought to mind that song by Trooper called "3 dressed up as a 9" so I had to do the ATC. That was my inspiration behind this card. I do like Madonna but I'm pissed about all the reports that she has been leaving fans waiting for hours at her concerts, like be on time!! How hard should that be?? I've been to many concerts and they have been big names like Alice Cooper, John Mellancamp, Fleetwood Mac, Def Leppard, Judas Pries, etc.. and they have ALL been on time!!  Hmm... could I be a teller of unpopular truths???? haha

Ok I'm done with my rant. Here is a pic of my vegetables and plants getting hardened off, the big plant is this Saturday!!
More pics to come! Have a great day!

ATC Trio!!

Yes, that's right, I made an ATC trio!! I know, shut the front door!! It's been so long and I have been so out of the ATC scene that I made myself make a trio today and man it felt good!! I used the same color combo and some fabulous women stamps by Viva Las VegaStamps and bam! Here you have it:

Here is "never have to say sorry"
and here is "Sweet woman" (I know, I know, this will piss some people off.. but such is life...)
and last but not least "the same mistake"
Tell me what your fave ATC is and I'll be doing a draw to give away two stamps that I had duplicates for (never used and from the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps!):
I will pick a random name from those who comment on May 28th!

Here is a project life layout I did also, look at me catching up!!

I hope to be planting my first garden during the May long weekend so I will post some pics! Have a great week everyone!

It's May!

I can't believe it's May 1st today! The sun is shining and I planted some strawberry plants outside! This year is my first year that I am attempting a garden. I started a bunch of seeds last month and so far have hollyhocks, zinnias, tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, watermelons, 4 o'clocks, lupines, cauliflower, green onions, strawberries, lavender, portulcacas, and a few more I can't remember right now!  Here are some pics of my fledgling garden:

Check out the sunflowers!
 And some tomatoes and sunflowers:
 The Coleus was sooo easy to grow from seed!!
 Pepper fledglings!
ps. I HATED these Jiffy pots, they dried out too fast, like daily, and I ended up putting them into the black plastic transplant pots.
 I have kept a journal so I know what does well and how long it took seeds to sprout!
And in scrappy news here are a few project life layouts I have done:

There just isn't enough time!! I wanted to detail and wash my car this weekend but never got to it.  I did go the butcher's and buy some filets and we barbequed last night and they were delish!!!!  Tomorrow is back to the grind for a full week, heavy sigh.... oh the things I could if I didn't have to work but still got paid!!

Finally some ATC's....

Hi, anyone who reads this blog knows how sporadic it is... it's funny because it seems like a lot of people have lost their mojo. I remember the days of numerous scrap magazines (are there any even in print anymore???), scrap celebs, the big scrap conventions where there would be a shitload of new products that we all felt compelled to buy.. and now I look at my art room and think holy shit woman, what the hell are you going to do with all this stuff???  How about you, has your mojo taken a nosedive? Do you still create the same volume?

Granted I still scrap, but in the project life format, so a lot of the embellishments, stickers, etc.. I can still use but I also have a bunch of other stuff that I can't.  I put some in the garage sale last summer and now have a bunch of scrap magazines and books that will be going to the Sally Ann this week. It feels good to declutter.

I still do art journaling and ATC's but not on the level I was at for sure.  Since I'm not on any DT's I don't feel pressured to make stuff so I mainly don't! haha BUT... this week I did do 3 ATC's (hold on to your hats I know!!)

It did feel good but I also felt quite rusty!! haha Here are some more project life layouts as well.  This one is just some random pics:
 This one is from the Headpins & Holly Woods/Toronto concert we went to:
 February was lovely!
 And last but not least this one was from the Trooper concert we went to.
Well, I'm going to go back to my art table and try to do an art journal page now, wish me luck!

Long time no see!!

Yes I'm still alive and I totally suck at blogging!! I can't believe it's been over 2 months... I really don't have much to report other than I will be starting a garden this year, yay!!! Also I ordered an essential oil diffuser and cannot wait to get it!!!! Does anyone have a diffuser and if so thoughts? I'll post a pic of mine when it comes which should be this week!

I have been busy keeping up with my project life and when I was in Calgary last month I was at Winners and they had a bunch of kits on for $19 (I know right???) so I splurged and bought these 4:
I went to IKEA while I was there as I also needed more storage bins to hold all my cards that I have amassed, it's crazy!! haha Here are the containers I use:
 and my work table:
I have told myself I am not allowed to buy any more cards but we'll see how that goes! haha Since I have a shitload of cards it's only right that I should be actually  using them right?? Here are the layouts I've done:

I can honestly say I'm still loving this way of scrapping.  It is fun, easy, quick and you can spend as little or as much time as you want doing it. 

I also actually did a couple journal pages too!

I'm hoping to do some ATC's soon as it's been so long!!

I had a couple pubs which was exciting! I had 2 ATC's in the "Stamping All Year Long" book published by RubberStampMadness on Pg. 35 & 59
as well as an ATC on pg. 51 in the Spring 2016 RubberStampMadness
Well that's about it, I think it's time for me to head outside and enjoy some of this fabulous sunshine we are having at this time of year! Have a great week everyone!
