I have a little woodland-inspired eye candy to share today:
This is a project I did for the Pink Paislee blog - today's subject is "Thursday Trends", and the Paislee goodies are just so awesome for making trendy nature-inspired pages, I couldn't resist! I hand-cut the tree out of patterned paper, as well as the bird stamp, and added a few coordinating nature-touches like Hambly woodgrain, tags from Sushipotparts, and walnut ink splatters. Yummy! =) I found this random picture of my when I was small being goofy, and I was struck by how similar I am to the me I was when I was little...thus the journalling. =) You can check out the Paislee blog for my post here, and make sure you also check out Dani's cool stamp-stitching technique - such a great insipiring idea!! Must try it...
I'm just dying to sew - I got some embroidery patterns I bought from Elsie the other day and they have me hankering...=) I was big on cross-stitching when I was like 9 - so dorky, I know! lol...but I need to make something with my hands soon or I will burst; all this computer work in a row has me wanting to whip out the paints and sewing machine....soon, soon!
Oh! I meant to mention that I've had to step down as a Scrapmojo girl - in lieu of more product design work, I've had to step down from the design team so that I'm not too thinly spread (my hubby likes to hang out with me sometimes, too...he he)- so I'm sorry to say I won't be a part of the team anymore. =( so sad! I love those girls and the challenges have been so fun!! So thanks Marie for having me as part of the team, and I'm still going to be checking in on the girls and their fab work over at the Mojo blog!
I did have some (okay, lots...) of picture Z took at the park of all the Spring babies: raccoons, a fishing crane, baby ducks and geese...but alas, left them all at home...so maybe tomorrow! For now, I have to share this girls' super-inspiring tunes: Kate Nash. Oh yes, if you haven't heard her album..you must. That is, if you don't mind 'explicit' lyrics, catchy beats, and a cute english accent....(D******d is my favorite song - even Z likes it a lil bit)....lol...Love it to pieces and it's gotten me through working at home for the last 3 days. I'm hankering for some Donnas' tunes, too...I've resisted buying their new album for some time now...and I've been repeating "Breathe Me" by Sia constantly, too...Oh, music...how I love you. =) Which reminds me, I may actually buy an ipod now that I have an income again. There are thoughts of buying a new computer, too..cuz I am surprised my little machine has been able to handle a big 2-minute project, actually...(knock on wood)...but I would much rather spend money on summer vacations than a computer for now...sooo excited to go away somewhere in June!
Anyways, off I go to leave some blog love all around! =) Thanks, as always, for stopping by with sweet words everybody! Only one day left til the weekend and almost a week left til I'm one-jobbed!! Woot! =) Happy day!
