So today was Canada day here in Canada (more about that tomorrow i think) and the weather was not so pleasant so i spent the morning picking my courses for the fall (my summer is more than halfway over already – just by the way, wtf?) and I spent the latter half of the day scrapbooking and art journaling. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon since I couldn’t be outside laying by the pool. What does one’s studio look like after a day of crafting you ask? Well here you go:Disastrous. It looks a little better than that now though – so that’s a bonus. (I realize not everyone’s studio looks like this after a day of crafting but lets be honest shall we? it should) (I also realize i used the term studio to describe my scrap table that sits in the corner of my bedroom – i’m ok with it, you should be to). So what on Earth did I make to make such a mess you ask yourself? Well then you are in luck because here are a few of the things I cranked out of the factory today.I finally got started on Rachel’s summer art journaling class – I Do Solemnly Swear. This is the title page on which I misspelled solemnly. meh. I left it. It was really fun to just play around for myself. I haven’t been doing a lot of scrapping lately, but what I have been doing hasn’t just been for myself – they’ve all been projects for other things with deadlines etc. Mind you, its not that these aren’t fun to complete – its just different than when you’re doing something completely for yourself you know? Anyways I had a super fun time making this page.I also did the second page from the class, but not before good light ran out to take a picture of it. Expect it sometime tomorrow assuming my internet decides to work. We are on a satellite high speed connection here at home and its good when it works – but it seems to be working less and less these days. Suuuper frustrating. What the mother of crap did people do before the internet? because I could not survive without it.
I also got to put some finishing touches on my first project for Such Sweet Tierney this month as well as a few other projects I can’t share right away. London sent me an amazing little packet of buttons this month and I have been playing around with them in the little free time I have. I have put together a couple things and this is my favourite so far – so fun to make. Here is a sneak peek at the layout:Check out London’s blog for the big reveal coming either Friday or next Wednesday. We’re all about the suspense over at Such Sweet Tierney – keep you guessing lol.
All this plus I got to enjoy some Canada day festivities including fireworks. I’ll probably blog more about that tomorrow too. But for now I am off to bed for the night.
ps. Thank you all so much for the sweet comments lately they really mean so much and make blogging a more rewarding thing to do – because all you bloggers know that blogging is sometimes the last thing you want to do. But seriously while I’m ultimately blogging for myself, your comments make me a better blogger so thank you.
pps. I got the first season of Samantha Who for my birthday and I’ve been watching it over and over. it is hysterical. check it out if you haven’t seen it.
