I’m a Toys ‘R Us kid.
There’s a million toys at Toys ‘R Us that I can play with.
La la la lala la la….
You know where I’m coming from, right?
Growing up. Leaving childhood behind. Facing our own mortality as we grow older and move further and further away from those carefree days of being a kid.
Well, that’s what was on my mind today. I didn’t feel like going into the studio so I got nothing, nada, zip, zilch done on my paintings or my street number sign that I’ve been working on…just art journaling but at least I’m creating and that feels good. It keeps me from feeling like a slug.
So here’s my journal layout for the day…”Kid Again” (be sure to click on it to see it larger/more close up):
I just love the little girl in the page on the right. She has the look on her face that is exactly what I feel like most days. ARGGG! lol I just really enjoyed doing this layout…it is built on copies of original photos done by my youngest daughter which makes it extra special.
Plus hey, the feelings are genuine, too.
Anyway, if I’m feeling better tomorrow (and if the doc will call with my latest liver panel results, I know that would help make me feel better…well, if they come back showing improvement in liver function, I mean) then I will try to finish making Melissa’s Journal that she won in my giveaway. She’s decided to leave color choices up to me so I’m having a ball in making something really original for her.
Now, I’m way behind on reading my favorite blogs so if I haven’t been around in a few days, blame it on my being icky. I will get there, eventually. I promise.
I hope you’re all having a great week and that the creative spirit is tickling you silly.
Peace & Love,
