Hello again! Still MIA over here, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel! I hired my right hand person today to help alleviate the workload I have right now. Phew! Now I can stop doing 2 jobs half arsed and do my job exceedingly well. This seriously will mean more energy and more time with Photoshop. I am one happy person today. :D
It's going to take some effort to get back into the blogging sphere; composing and reading them. Do not fret, Mango Islanders. I have a few things up my sleeve. ;-)
This week at Unscripted Sketches we are throwing a piggy back challenge on top of the sketch challenge. This means that you have not one, but two challenges for ya: Sketch + Color Combo. The piggy back challenge was optional with the DT, but I decided to go for it.
I have to admit that getting the colors to be cohesive was a challenge, but I had fun. It's like critical thinking skills for scrapbooking.
Anyways, not too much stuff going on this weekend, but hopefully I can finish up that LO I started weeks ago. We'll see if inspiration hits. Maybe some digiscrap retail therapy is in order. What do you think?
I am feeling good. Quite good actually because I was crafty this weekend! Now granted I didn't get to spend all weekend being crafty the mojo definitely got some time while still hanging out with the family.
With Valentine's right around the corner I decided to get on the ball and make some love cards! Completed a Valentine's card that I will be duplicating so I can sell on my crafty store on Etsy along with a few other designs I did a few years back, but never got around to selling them.
This picture was taken with my iPhone this morning because I couldn't wait to share with you, my loyal followers, but will hopefully be able to replace with a cleaner, clearer picture from a real camera.
The label and the word art is digi. Will update this post with the supply list later. I also wanted to share a card I made over a month ago.
Again, taken with the crappy iPhone camera. These are part of a personal set I made for those times when it's someone's birthday, like tomorrow, and I don't have a card made because I'm a douche and forgot. LOL. Can't have too many birthday cards in hand, right?
I was hoping that I would also complete the digi LO I started a few weeks ago, but after purchasing some new kits last week I decided to put that LO on hold and start on a new one. Plus I wasn't really feeling the LO and REALLY wanted to play with a new kit from one of my fave designers, Audacious Designs, whom I just found out opened up her store again at Design House Digital.
I'm so glad I made time to get into my studio this week. Amazing what it does for your soul! Am I right? And thank you again for my fellow followers for sticking around and checking in from time to time. It means the world to me. I promise that I am slowly getting back to catching up on my blog reader and will post comments on your fabulous blogs!
Till next time. Peace.
Hey folks! It's me, the stranger. It's been awhile, yes I know. Life is still pretty crazy now with work consuming pretty much all my time. Like I said before that makes for no motivation in my craft room. But motivation struck me last night! I want to do a few Valentine's cards so I actually rummaged through some supplies and are now ready to work on them. Yay!
I was planning on staying up late last night to finish a digi LO I started two weeks ago but by the time I got Joey to bed it was already after 10 so I decided to watch Sense and Sensibility instead. I love Jane Austin's stories, though I have never been able to tkeep up with reading the books. Hopefully I'll be able to work on a few cards today and will pull an all-nighter tonight to finish that LO.
I really need to get into the habit of just posting even though I don't have anything significant to post about. I have blogger's fear sometimes, I guess. Ok, and maybe a little laziness. :D But enough excuses right? Like the Nike commercial- Just do it!
I've got a couple house chores I need to take care of before I can start working on these cards. Have a great weekend!!
I thought that it was finally time to get a new banner designed now that the holidays are done and it's the 16th of January and all. The supplies are mainly from one of my fave designers, Lauren Reid. This kit is probably one of my all time faves that I consistently use all the time.
Just checking in. I've been super busy with work- this last 2 weeks working really long hours- but since I've been doing a few design things I think i actually want to do an all nighter tonight to work on a LO. Designing is like working at the gym... It definitely refreshes you.
That's it for now. Sorry I haven't been checking in as often. But hopefully you'll be able to see some goodies from me real soon.
Thank you to all of you who left comments with your resolution(s) for 2010. I worked very hard this weekend to stick to my resolutions, constantly reminding myself of them. I hope each of you are doing the same. Just keep telling yourself that you CAN do it!!
And now for the winner of the blog candy. Drum roll please...
It's back to work today. Lots of stuff to do but I am going to be patient and stick to my to-do list so I will be less stressed and get more work done.
The hubby and I stayed home, as usual, and rang in the New Year with a movie. Actually, the hubby was fast asleep before midnight while I was reading up on some Twilight fan fiction, my newest addition. We don't dare go out to any overpriced parties or get caught in a checkpoint. Back in the younger years the hubby and I used to throw house parties for New Years, but now that we have Joey we're pretty much homebodies.
If you made it to my blog you probably came from Jenny's blog, which means you are hopping along on the Unscripted Sketches New Years blog hop. Yay!
So it's the New Year and with that comes resolutions, wishes and goals. I have never been much for resolutions since I honestly didn't take the time to really stick to them. I'm hoping to be more serious this year and stick to them. Because I don't want to create all of these resolutions and overwhelm myself I am sticking to 2 that are going to be the most important things in my life that I desperately need.
I can live with these 2 and *know* that if I put my mind to it I can make this happen. Sounds easy enough right? Like everything in life the most simplest things are usually the things you have to work hardest at.
I'd like to hear what your resolutions are for 2010. It doesn't have to be a laundry list but what are one or two of the most important things you would like to get out of 2010? Leave your resolution in the comments section by Sunday 9 pm EST to be entered to win blog candy from me. And feel free to follow me too!
