Finally, it happened to me....

I've had that song in my head ever since I actually sat down and made some art!!!!! I thought the day would never come but it did!! The new prompt is up over at the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal and it's this:

THE PROMPT: Memory Lane
THE SONG: You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins
PRODUCT/TECHNIQUE: photo of a road

and this was my take on it:


















It's such a great song and if you have teenagers or older kids it really makes you think about how much you and they are going to miss the times you used to spend together. I know I do.

I also made an art journal just because and boy did that feel good!!


















I treated myself to another Sid Dickens memory tile and I chose this one, it's stunning!


















I'm going to treat myself to one a month and then by the time we get into the new house I should have a nice little wall of Sid Dickens gorgeousness!!!!

Thanks to Tina I discovered the coolest thing ever, you can make your blog into a book!!! How cool is that?? It's called Blog2Print and I have 2 saved books in my cart, but I'm just hoping that they will send out a coupon code soon as the books aren't cheap. My first year of blogging will cost me $135!! But in the long run I feel it's so worth it because it's like a visual diary for me. I can't wait to order!!!!!

Sunny September & the renter from HELL

I can't believe how beautiful it is right now for September!! Last week and on the weekend we had temperatures of up to 32 above!! It was so gorgeous out!! We had our little sweet pea on Saturday for a visit and took him for a stroller ride to the park and to the art museum. He konked out mid stroll so John and I enjoyed a nice walk. The poor little guy fell at daycare and fractured his leg so he has a cast! He was going down the stairs and another little girl accidentally stepped on his foot and you know the rest... The good thing is is that he is walking on it and it should heal just fine!



















While we were in the park I had to dip my toes in the fountain...


















and us sitting listening to some music in the park while sweet pea slept













When he woke up we walked to the mall and let him pick out a couple little Matchbox cars, he just loves them right now!!! It was a great day.

Onto the renter from hell. We had a renter, who I will call Jolene, who was the dirtiest and filthiest person I have ever known. Not only did she skip out on the last month's rent but she left the place like this:

What a filthy bitch. I hope she gets it all back in bad karma and more.

I still have made no art. Sigh. I think tomorrow night is the night. Yeah, I know, I've been saying that for a while right?? haha I'll leave you with this which I got a kick out of:
