Wow, it's been since February since I've posted!? What in the world have I been doing with myself!? I haven't even worked on my soul journal, nor have I kept my daily journal current. I have, however kept my Sunday sermon journal and my Wednesday Women's Bible study journals current. Guess if I'm going to keep any of them current, those are "the ones" to keep up on, huh?
I've caught up on quite a few scrap book pages for my son.
I've done my first altered clipboard.
I've participated in a couple of swaps on swap-bot.com. If you don't know about this site, check it out. It's a lot of fun! It's free, and you choose what swaps you want to sign up for with choices from swapping spare supplies, ATC's, matchboxes, hand-made cards, journals....all sorts of things. And who doesn't like good old fashioned mail in their mail box?
I finished a book. Emma & Me. This was given to me in a swap (^^^). What a great surprise. The book was about two sisters, aged 6 and 8. The youngest, at age 3, had seen her father murdered by a "robber". Mom remarries and abusive alcoholic and it's the story line of their lives. The last two chapters of the book, has a twist that you NEVER expect is coming! I love those kinds of books. You know, when you so wrapped up in it, you believe every moment of it, and when that twist happens, you think, NO WAY, because you knew the characters, "SO WELL!".
Oh~! and I'm the biggest Loser at work! Woo~Hoo~! A seventeen pound loss so far, baby!
I love Kim's rocks! I keep telling myself I'm going to paint/decorate all those rocks I have in the basement that my son gave to me in his toddler years when he "collected rocks" and gave all the "pretty ones" to Mom. I've just never had the heart to get rid of them and now I can transform them into rock art! I've bought some acrylic spray sealer for once they have been painted, so that is one of my "to do" projects.
I also need to get moving on My Taking Flight book with Kellie Rae Roberts, and of course, my soul journal.
I don't' know about you, but sometimes there is no real "problem" I'm battling. No "down mood" or "depression", and no real "I'm so busy" excuse, but that life just sort of carries us away. When this happens to me, eventually when I start to drag, become sluggish, or feel sort of hum-drum, it hits me! I haven't been creative! I haven't connected with all of my lovely artful blog friends!
The altered clip-board.... I admit.... I love! It turned out really well and will post pictures soon.
