Ahh, Sunday

Currently, I am staring out at the sunny day, just back from enjoying ice cream at the beach, with yellow paint splattered on my shirt...enjoying the insanely slow pace I am creating at today. It's toasty, I'm painting a monster, we're catching up on phone messages, sitting in front of our little fan, working, and I've had a massive headache for the last day and a half...which has been standable, but sucks. So yesterday my "yay, I finally have a day off to make stuff for myself!" was substituted with a long, long, and apparently much-needed nap day. Which is fab, I actually did nothing for a day, but was also bummed that I did nothing...lol.

Anyway, on with the show! Here's some pages I made with the ever-so-lovely Red Velvet Kit Club August kit:I was loving that there was a skein of embroidery thread in this kit, so I just had to stitch a little something something - I freehand wrote the title lightly in pencil and stitched over it for a funky title.
This one with a pic from Long Beach in Tofino was a lot of fun to play around with paint and layer....=)
And I had fun handwriting on this one. =) The journalling is about the signs I know its home...The fun summery colors in this kit were so rad! There are still a few up for grabs right here in the RVKC Etsy Shop. Also, there are still some August "Dress My Nest" home kits available at the Dozens! Whee! Make sure you scoop one up, cuz that paper and stamp I drew are only a limited-time kinda deal, just like the monster goodies!

As for me, I swear this week I will get some earrings made for my Etsy shop - I've been compiling supplies and ideas for months, now, and I know I have a few late nights at work this week to catch up, and they're moving my desk at the Studio, now, too - so I'll be sitting a few seats down from Z...he he. How funny is that? I'm so happy I have a lunch buddy to eat in the sunshine with everyday, now, too. he he...Anyway, yeah, so I'm hoping for a fun week of making stuff - and I have a plan for my workspace involving the desks we already have, and on Friday I picked up a new flat-screen monitor I'm dying to set up so hopefully the house won't be in a shambles for much longer - I'm sick of looking for desks that are too big and expensive and hard to transport. Argh. I'ma bout ready to head on over to Walmart where the searching isn't so few and far between...lol. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! =) Happy days, guys!
