I got new wheels!!!! My car died and I had been driving John's old blue jalopy for a week and we finally bit the bullet and splurged and got me a 2011 Ford Escape XLT, fully loaded!!!!! I am still pinching myself. It has "sync" so I can just plug my iphone in and make and receive phone calls, listen to music, etc.. It's amazing. Plus it drives like a dream. I'm thinking of calling it "the Bat Mobile" because when I'm inside it it's like a command central. hehe. Here she is in all her glory (ignore the mud splashes, the weather here hasn't gotten nice enough for me to wash her yet!)
The new prompt is up over at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal and here it is:
THE PROMPT: Details
ie: The little things take some photos of some of the little details in your day that make you smile.
THE STUFF: Macro Photos/Inchies
ie: Take some photos and use small prints of them on your page. (or clip some from a magazine)
THE TEChNIQUE: Grid Scrapping
ie: Use the images in 1in. squares and create a grid of the little things.
and here was my take on it
When I was little my mom wrote me a note and on it was this quote "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" and it has stuck with me ever since. I did my page on just things that make me happy, nothing big but again it's all about the little things! I didn't use inchies as my pictures were too big but I do love to grid scrap!
I got my bowl back from the glass fusing class I took and it turned out awesome!! I am really happy with it. Here it is
I wish the picture did it more justice but it's kind of hard to take a good one as the glass reflects so much light. Paige and I will be doing a class together in May to make a bowl, some good mother/daughter bonding time! Can't wait!
The house is coming along, John is doing trim work now
what a mess eh?
I got the exciting news today that the new Featuring Magazine is out and my copy is on it's way to me!! I have some artwork in here and am super pumped to see the article and artwork as well as everyone elses!!! Make sure you go to the website and see what it's all about as it looks amazing!!!
I finished the "Fifty Shades of Grey" series, I'm sure you have heard about it (what woman hasn't by now right???) and loved the first 2 books but wasn't dazzled by the 3rd.
Have you read them? Want to read them? Thoughts?
