I’ve been totally inconsistent with posting updates. Oooops! In the past couple of days, I’ve been trying to relax and enjoy life; however, I still feel exhausted emotionally, physically, and mentally. Although tired, I still have a creative spark going, which is a great thing because it helps me relieve stress.
I’ve been busy scrapping about every project – layouts, cards, altered items, etc. I’d love to share ALL of them, but unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until I get permission to post. Until then, I’ll leave you with a couple projects.
My latest layout was inspired by Scrapping Out Loud. I really liked the idea of this challenge site; basically, you get a “Word of the Week” and a “Sketch of the Week”. You have a choice of either doing one or the other or both. I decided to play along.
…and because I already had a pile of scraps out, I cranked out a card for Valentine’s Day. Here is a random and spontaneous card I made:
I was already on a roll doing Valentine related projects, so I made a little felt pocket to store little love notes. I know a lot of couples write and doodle down notes to each other throughout the day, so I thought this was a cute way to store everyday sentiments. Of course, you can add a magnetic strip to the back, and put it up on the fridge!
Yesterday, Maui got to go to the park since it was sunny. She was completely drained from playing that within a few minutes in the car, she fell asleep.
The past couple of days, I’ve been also working on the patio area. I’ve been trying to add more color to our empty space, so I planted some flowers. I plan on growing vegetables and herbs, but I’ll wait until the cold chill goes away. Anyway, I wanted to share some fun little “critters” in our garden.
…and I was so excited when I saw these pop out of the ground. I counted around 4-5 buds, and hopefully more will be sprouting out soon! Thank gosh for the sun because I’m starting to dislike the cold!
Those are all the pictures I have of the garden right now. I’ll update more soon!
And last but not least, I’m giving out a RAK. I have more random stuff to giveaway, so if you want to play. Just leave a comment with what flower you think I should have in our garden. Last day to comment will be Sunday, January 18th, by 11:59pm.
