Tgif...still. and Lola:

....yay, Friday! I just remembered the coolness of tv on Friday nights when I was like, 12...ha ha. Boy Meets World, Family Matters...(sigh)...lol. I posted some of these goodies on Flickr yesterday, so my apologies if you're seen em and they're old news...lol...But here's some recent stuffs i've made:

Lola! My little whale...(she's kind of like a prototype)....She has beans in her bottom to weigh her down and a cute floppy tail....=) I hand-stitched the embroidery on her mouth and eyes, cuz I'm crazy that way.
...and I did my second day of Holly's art journal challenge, "friend"..and then realized friend wasn't even on my list..ha ha...so I changed the list already, cuz I don't know why "friend"wasn't on there...lol. there was an cool price tag on the vintage trim, so I left it..just a quick simple one page cuz I'm a little (cough) behind on this challenge...
...And then I made a page for the latest One Little Word challenge, cuz I started writing down "still" prompts and couldn't stop...lol. and I know I just used this picture, but seriously, the paper camera fir perfectly, I had to use it! And that rainbow paper has been calling to me for a while..he he...I made the journalling on a notebook-style pad and stapled it onto the layout so I could fit it all. To read and see a few more close-ups, go here.
Hmmm..not much else is new. Work is Supa-busy and very empty because the show is coming to an end and all the animators are finished...just us last-step-in-production guys left. =) Dying to announce some things I've been up to, but I gotta wait!! argh...lol...Happy about Tutli Putli's Oscar nomination...sad about Heath Ledger....wondering what new movies are out..Still wanting to see Juno again...Happy that Z keeps getting cool freelance gigs...still attempting to open the Etsy store...(almost ready!) Loving the CHA peeks that I've seen...specially here at the brand-new Pink Paisley....yum! And also, how sweet is Prima Hybrid?? duuude...I had some birthday money to spend so I treated myself to a few things to play with...there is so much great stuff there, I was excited..for a girl who thought she'd never try digi, whew...I'm gonna do my Overlooked page this weekend all digi, so that should be interesting...he he. Anyways, lunch is oevr..back to work for me...happy day! And, as always, thanks for the sweet comments girlies...=)
