Crafts Gone WRONG!

Click on the pic for a larger view..........
I was at the library with Isaiah & Jessica and grabbed a book on basketmaking while Zay was watching a puppet show. I skimmed through it and it grabbed my interest immediately. Even tho the book is era 1970s - the techniques were interesting to me. So i decided to try with newspaper. Well, basket making is ALOT harder than the book makes it look~ LOL!!!! i am determined to learn if it kills me ( which my hands ached after this disaster so bad!)

PS notice Isaiah's green shake sitting over there? its ingredients are banana, kale, pineapple, lemon, stevia & coconut oil. Yum yum!

Our trip to Nashville, Indiana

Click on the pic to see it larger.
Luckily I did get in the creative mood yesterday & finished 2 layouts! Here is one of the layouts from our Mini-Vacation to Indiana ( Dan's work sent him to Indiana & we tagged along ) .. I found a bunch of cute digital freebies from this site & it helped inspire the layout of this page. I like how usually these two pics wouldn't seem all the great without family in them -- but with a little journaling they actually come to life.

Oh and btw, i turn 35 today :-) Not that anybody reads this blog anyhow!!

not inspired today.........

I stumbled upon this cute little gadget. You can click on the gadget to feed them.

Today I am trying hard to get inspired to digi-scrapbook. I have a hot cup of coffee and some ice water at my desk...tons of digital paper & embellishments.. and no inspiration. ugh. this happens to me sometimes with any type of creating I might do. I need to quit forcing this and just move on to something else until inspiration hits I guess. Maybe I should just do the laundry instead? BOooo!

I used this tutorial to blend a picture into a background. She uses Photoshop but I sorta played around with Gimp until I figured it out. I LOVE how this page turned out!!!

Bathing beauties

This layout is the first time I cropped pictures into circles. I think it gives the layout a fun feel to it. plus...the circles remind me of bubbles which match the whole swimming/water thing.

Today we are grilling veggies with white rice. I think rain is coming so I hope the food gets done before it starts pouring! We really need the rain though. Our grass looks like a patch of golden wheat. I'm kinda glad I didn't plant any vegetables in the garden this year. I bet I would of had a terrible time with growing good produce~!

Swimming in Indiana

We spent 2 weeks in a hotel in Indiana while my husband worked at another plant training employees. It was so much fun to stay in a luxury hotel! Complimentary breakfast & dinner made life easy for me and best of all it was all FREE!
