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!

We binge watched all 3 seasons of it and I cannot wait for season 4!!!!!!!!!

Yes I'm still alive!

I just noticed how long it's been since I've blogged, wow! I got my issue of the Somerset Studio Art Journaling Oct/Nov/Dec 2015 magazine and am proud to say I'm featured on pages 64-68!! I love this magazine!!
I have also been on a concert run lately and was lucky enough to have won a meet and greet with Bret Michaels!
how cool is that right?? The hubs and I also saw Judas Priest on halloween night and Styx this past weekend! Rock on!!

Here are some project life layouts I've done and I really, really need to do some more art journal pages and ATC's... never enough time.

The hubs and I also saw Journey in concert in July, amazing!!!
 July in a nutshell!
 Life is good!
 Tribute to summer planting!
 Documenting movies I love!
Well that's about it for now and hopefully next time I will be blogging a lot sooner and also have some art journal pages or ATC's to share! Have a wonderful week!

Hey there

I'm back with not a lot other than a few project life layouts and some work funnies!
This will be me tomorrow. For sure.haha!

Alrighty then... enough funnies (but not really.. my soul really has had to struggle to stay alive) and onto the project life layouts I've done.  This was about our garage sale from the summer, good Lord... what you gotta do to get some  people to part with a dollar!! So glad it's over!! haha
 And June... still loving documenting by the month. Of course my horrid memory has something to do with this!  Really loving the fun bright colors and especially the Project Life cards like the cat in shades and smiley face!!
 And hello summer!!!
That's about all I have, too much work and not enough time to play. :( How about  you, has your scrapping/creating been decreased for whatever reason?
