Thursday Three 3/27/14

Here I am again in my scrap room! No surprise, right? Excuse the hair today - it's still up from my stint on the treadmill and I need to get it washed. Anyway, here's 3 random facts about me today....
  1. Been thinking of my dad all week as Monday would have been his 83rd birthday. He is missed so very much and it's still hard to believe he's no longer with us. ;(
  2. I am seriously thinking about leaving Close to my Heart as a consultant after 7 1/2 years. Mixed emotions about that but it may be necessary.
  3. I need to get off this computer so I can get some paper packs mailed out. I am PURGING my scrapbook stash as most of you know and I am happy to report that I have sold 3 paper packs + stickers this week. Yay!
 Hope you all have a great day!

Thursday Three 3/20/2014


Good Thursday morning to you! Here's three random facts about me right now!
  1. I am sitting at my dining room table with coffee in hand looking through veggie seed packs and deciding which ones need to be started now. 
  2. I keep looking out the windows about every 5 minutes checking to see if the bluebirds have actually started building their nests yet and watching for any of those pesky starlings and sparrows so I can chase them away!
  3. I have five projects in progress and can't decide which one I should work on today. No surprise there!
Happy Thursday!

  1. I am wearing me favorite sweater - one I bought many years ago when I visited the Bully Hill Vineyards in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate NY.
  2. My hair hasn't been curled yet today and boy do I need a haircut! I am trying to grow my bangs out and it is driving me nuts!
  3. I have not stepped outside the door today because it is too cold & windy!
Have a great day!

My Vision Board for One Little Word

 This month's assignment for One Little Word is to create a vision board. I have never in my life ever made one of these before and wasn't too keen on the idea to begin with but figured I'd give it a try anyway so I could use the 12" x 12" canvas that I'd had it seems like forever. So here is what I created....

I cut images and words out of one magazine, amazingly the first one on the pile of several, and found exactly what I wanted - wonderful images and words that fit on my canvas perfectly. Although my 'one little word' is purge, it is not on this canvas but that's okay. All the other images and words are indirectly linked to my 'one little word' and what I want to accomplish this year with my word.

After deciding how to arrange the pieces on my canvas, I glued the background words down first then when it was dry, I swiped a couple different color ink pads across it before adhering the other images and word strips down. I then added a few gems and wooden embellishments, a photo of myself, stamped the words 'vision board 2014' and called it done! I love how it turned out!
I decided to take a photo of myself holding my new awesome piece of art, printed it out at 8"x 10" then made a scrapbook page to put in my OLW album. As I said, this was something I had never made before but I totally enjoyed the process as well as the final result.

Happy scrampin'!
