I am going to buckle down and start creating more often and get posting as much as I can. The kids schedules are super full and we are constantly on the move. I have arranged my volunteer schedule at school so that I am technically only obligated to one day, although I have a hard time staying away, there is so much to be done. We have great volunteers though, very dedicated and reliable.
Halloween is right around the corner and I have lots of plans for crafts....I love halloween colors! Keep checking in for inspiration.

Much to my happpiness I found them quickly! Bella Blvd. I was immediately in love, the colors were great, (they have loads stripes which are my fave!) fresh ideas from the gallery and best of all the italian connection! I love anything that reminds me of my honeymoon.
So smack dab on their homepage is submission call...Hmmmm, I say to myself-Why not? So I order some product from Two Peas, they were afterall the ones to inspire this whole journey, and once it arrives start to create. Who knows if anything will come of it but I have talked way too long about doing something like this so, I am stepping out of my comfort zone!
I will cross my fingers and hope my stuff catches their eye!

Entering contests consumed me for a while, not that I entered hardly any but I would think about that more than just going with the creative flow. I wanted nothing more than to be published. I wanted to be able to make a career of something I loved to do. I haven't given up on that dream of course, I just have not limited myself to what I think publishers want to see. I make what I want to make and I don't even limit myself to chronology. I do whatever feels right for that moment. How liberating right...to do what YOU want!
Well, I hope that you will consider entering for a chance to win the Scrap and Share contest and remember, You have to be in it to win it!

Recently I found a blog of a supper creative woman named Nicole Heady and I have been "lifting" her ideas. This was my favorite, the Cupcake Take Along. I couldn't resist and I ordered some of their products and went to town.
The Supplies used for this particular project were: Cardstock;PaperCompany, Patterned Paper;Stampin'Up, Glassine bag and test tubes;Paper Trey Ink, Ribbon;JoAnns
I also made one for each of my kid's teachers, they were for Valentine's Day, and I made one for my brother for his birthday. They are super cute and fun to make.
I end this post with a great quote by Emily Dickinson: "To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else"
I will be posting more, both creatively and just to update the ever so comical thing I call being me. My goal is to not have it be 9 months between each post!
