“Sometimes you gotta take chances
Nothing stays the same
The world will keep on turning
Again and again, again and again”
From “Changes” by Chris Lake
As you can see, I do love some change. I loved the other layout but it just didn’t seem to be ME. I’m not really sure this one is me, either, but I thought I’d try it on for size.
My creativity has been taken up with making invitations to my youngest daughter’s wedding reception and it has worn me out! First there was designing them (which was hard enough considering that my daughter turned into Bridezilla over everything from the fonts to the paper to the layout!), then the printing which was tedious since she chose to print on a vellum overlay (oh geez!).
Next, there was cutting and adding the black and red ribbon to each invitation (another Bridezilla choice…can we make this a little harder please? UGH!), then we had to do the addresses, stuff the envelopes and seal them.
This has been a 3 day adventure….and I mean 3-FULL-DAYS. I don’t mention it here but I am ill with some chronic conditions and recently found out right before the holidays that I have another serious condition so now I’m I’m on even more meds and feel like total crap 80% of the time.
Can you see why this adventure made me cranky?
Whew! I’m just glad it’s finally done.
Now to just get them in the mail and, since I don’t leave the house very often right now, I’m going to have to insist that Bridezilla, er…I mean Shelby (my daughter), take them to the Post Office this morning. I better no catch any flack from her over it either!
I’m whiny today…sorry.
I’ve not done much artistically otherwise…well, except for playing with my new slew of Sharpie Paint Markers in my Art Journal for a while. I just love those markers…they are just such yummy art goodness. I’m so glad that some of you are going to order and use them…I promise that you’ll love ‘em. One little note, be sure to follow the directions to prime them and use them for a bit on a scrap paper to get the paint flowing well before you start thinking that they don’t work right.
And be sure to let me know what you think of them, too.
If any of you have any other wonderful inexpensive (remember, I’m a thrifty kinda girl) art supplies, clue me in – I do love a good artsy bargain.
It’s still early but I’ve been up since 5:30am and didn’t get to sleep until after 3am (meds again) so it’s time for a nap for this sleepy girl. I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and rest of the weekend.
Oh, and don’t forget, I’m drawing for a handmade, recycled materials, wire-bound journal on Monday evening at 5pm. If you haven’t entered yet, be sure to check out THIS POST and drop your name in the hat.
Peace & Love,
