some have asked…

…to see pictures of my ring. I posted a couple of pictures somewhere in a previous post.

Well, in case you don’t remember or you skipped that post, here it is again:

I'm still swo0o0o0oning! πŸ™‚

A girl's dream come true. πŸ™‚

Speaking of wedding related, I’m excited that a local bridal store is having a trunk show with a designer I actually like! I should probably check it out.

…and some have asked how long I have had GAD for. Well, I didn’t officially “know” until January of last year. However, I’m pretty sure I’ve had it my whole life. My psychiatrist agrees with me on that one. *wink* …and if you don’t know what generalized anxiety disorder is, let me educate you:

…and some have asked me where I have been published. Well, I’ve been in various ones both in print and online – Paper Crafts, Memory Makers (so sad they ceased publication), and Creating Keepsakes just to name a few. Those are the big ones. I’ve got upcoming ones in CARDS Magazine and Scrapbooking and Beyond, so I’ll let you know when those are on the shelves, so you can pick up your copy. πŸ™‚

…and some have asked me how old I am. I’m twenty plus five; I’ll let you do the math. *wink*

…and some have asked me where do I live. Well, duh! I’m not going to pinpoint my exact location for the whole world to see. There are a lot of scary people out there who love to stalk gals like me, haha. Here’s something to keep in mind because I know a lot of you other bloggers have received hate mail and what not. I know that I have had tons of it, and I keep track of hate mail/messages and incoming/outgoing visitors to my blog in case I need to report it. Considering I literally have a mental disorder (that makes me sound like a lunatic, but I don’t really care, haha), I can definitely file a case for harassment (or at least that’s what the doctors told me to do). Oh, the power of law and insanty. πŸ™‚ Anyway, some of you already have my address, and that’s great — send me a card or a letter. I love HAPPY MAIL; it makes my day!

…and some wanted to see more pictures of my furbabies. Here they are:

Look at me, Mom! I'm a big dog now!

Don't you just love my smile?!

…and some wanted to know how in the world do I create as much as I do. Well, to tell you quite honestly, I’m a creative machine. I like to think so, anyway. *wink* I gather inspiration from all over the place. I read other creative blogs. I look at all kinds of ads. I read books. I look at sketch sites. I make my own sketches for reference. Speaking of sketches, I decided that I would just share them with everyone. I find inspiration everywhere. Here’s a sketch if you are stuck created by yours truly:

If you decide to use it, I want to see what it looks like. I’ve got more sketches to share, but I haven’t uploaded them all yet. I’ve been busy with CHA stuff.

…and some people think it’s awesome that I’m the GDT over at Sketchy Thursdays. I agree! They’ve got a new post up with a brand new sketch. Here’s my take:

My favorite part about this layout is.... everything on this one is a scrap piece!

I think that’s it for now.

Again, thank you to everyone for their sweet and supportive words. An especially big thank you to the FAVE gals and the Freaks for letting me vent last night!

It really meant a lot to hear that a lot of you suffer(ed) with GAD as well.Β  I’m doing 23948023480230967 times better now. Seriously, it was just an abrupt, random panic attack, but thanks for all the positive comments.

PS: Maui and Hilo send you wags and kisses from afar! Dress warm because we don’t want you to get sick… besides, we’ve got big plans for next week! πŸ™‚

    Fun post and such a beautiful ring!!!!!!!! Love your layouts at Sketchy Thursday and the pix of the puppers. Hope this week is going better for you!

  2. gloria

    Ahem! You forgot to mention that the ring was a Tacori ring. Thank you very much! =P anyway, today is a warm 38 degrees. can you believe that? geebuz. so glad I’m coming home today.

  3. I think I need to make something with your sketch. How do you create sketches anyway? I assume it’s on the computer, but what program? πŸ™‚

    Yes, you are DEFINITELY a creative machine! A very inspiring one, at that!

  4. Hilo? A big boy? Critical Hit LOL! I still imagine him as a kid with the dirty backwards baseball cap, dirt and grass stains all over his clothes (that are too big for him), missing a tooth or two, and carry a frog in one hand and a wooden baseball bat in the other.

    Maui? She’s more like brunette Taylor Swift in that video. πŸ˜‰

  5. deana — maybe gloria and i should go to st. louis! hehe. ummm, and i use adobe photoshop cs3. it took me a while to figure things out, but i’m getting the hang of it… and i wanna see a lo with that sketch! πŸ™‚ it’d be an honor!

  6. scott — that description of hilo matches his personality exactly!!! he’s like the lil boy who always comes home dirty cuz he’s out playing at the baseball fields with a bunch of hooligans. as for maui, yup, she’s always gonna be a lil snob. i’d like to think she was kinda like madonna. HAHAHA!
