Back in the summer I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop hosted by the amazing Emily Falconbridge....I have admired her work ever since the day I stumbled upon her gallery over on 2 Peas.
Emily has launched a 52 week challenge and I have finally made a start on my art journal using Emilys weekly prompts.
Week one = Something you are proud of....
I am so proud to be my guys Mom...Im proud of Bobs schooling and sports achievements and Im am sooo proud of my little sweetpea J. He has so much to contend with in his life and yet always manages to bring a smile to the faces of those around him. I am so very proud and privelledge that Hubs and I were selected to be their parents.
Week two = What is powerful to you?
Hubs and I sat talking about this last night....I said that I thought the most powerful thing in my life is to be always true to myself. Truth to me is the most important thing. Without truth there is no trust, no respect, no happiness....Hubs thought that for him to be able to teach was the most important thing...we have to teach our kids the right way in life...so for him the abilty to teach would be the most powerful thing...we sat really discussing this prompt and in the end Hubs decided that actually truth would be way more important than anything else because without it there would be nothing......we have to be true to ourselves and others around us before we can be...we have to teach our kids this or else where would they be?
Week Three = I am.....
I am Travelling Life's journey....I really believe this. I believe that my life is already mapped out and that I am here to be tried and tested. The challenges I have faced I think have made me a stronger and wiser person....lets hope I make it to a higher level in the next life.
Ive really enjoyed making these wee cards and will be safely storing them away over the next year in a wonderful little tin that Tigger bought me back from the States.
And talking of Tigger......only one more sleep til we hit the Emerald Isle! Bags are packed...I just need to pack some stash! I cant go all that way without taking at least one project to work on.
Today I wasted a whole three hours today sat in the hairdressers! I hate hate hate just sitting there having someone wrapping my hair up in a ton weight of Baco Foil whilst the junior attempts to make light converstaion....I really wanted to say SHUT UP WENCH.....Im not actually interested in your boyfriend Duanes MX5 or the fact you are heading of to Costa del Cack for your holidays....leave me in peace...I wanna read this months issue of Scrapbook Inspirations....I didnt say that thought....instead I sat there listening to the budgerigar twittering on and on and on and on and gritted my teeth - FIRMLY!
Gems (my usual hair stylist) is backpacking the globe til March.....come back Gems I need you!)
After enduring the torture in the salon chair, I treated myself to a new bead for my Troll bracelet..... its been icy cold today...Im going to see my buddie this weekend and well blue is one of my fav colour's....so I just had to have Ice Blue Bud.
Thats it for now.
If your still awake well done....cor Ive waffled a bit tonight...LOL!
