Since I got my new camera I haven't been carrying it around in my pocketbook the way I use to with my old camera.  Luckily yesterday I had it in my car and while driving down the street I noticed these .....what are they even called? Dandelions? I think so.  I pulled over and took a few shots of it.  Our weather has been very rainy and it actually was a great day for photo taking.
Today in the studio I began work on a pretty big project.  It is a journal of sorts and I have to make sure I have the right amount of pages etc.  So I am being very careful in my planning.  More to come about this beauty!
Also in the studio I worked with Copics, dragged out the ole Prismacolor Pencils, and another type of marker that I will be sharing lots more about with you very soon! I'm heading off to bed...hope you have a good nights sleep.
Night!

well my life is still going way past the speed limit.
here is a little bit of what has been happening in my world:

  • i have lost any time at all to do things for myself these days, including blogging. this makes me sad. so i have made a conscience decision to do it again for me.
  • my grandmother turned 90 in March.
  • my job is amazing, love what you do and you'll never work another day in your life. thats what they say. i can say i love what i do.
  • teaching is amazing. see above.
  • i like american idol
  • greys anatomy didn't spark my interest so much this season :(
  • my girls are growing up really quickly.
  • my dad turned 68 this month.
  • my nephew who made me an auntie for the first time turned 27 today.
  • my only godson turned 21 yesterday.
  • on june 11th the gaspee day parade will take place here in my hometown, and the float for the elementary school i have spent the last 7 weeks working on with 9-12 year olds will be in the parade.  the children will be dressed in colonial costumes that i also helped make. should be fun.
  • life in general is busy....too busy....but it is life right?
why the new look of the blog? i feel fresh, and renewed in a lot of ways.  and wanted my blog to reflect it. since the new year i have been really been focused, feeling great health wise, and it feels good.

today i want to share the card with you that i made my dad for his birthday. it was a quickie and i thought it was great.  he really liked it too.  i think he got a kick out of seeing my name stamped on the back too :)

this paper is from websters pages yacht club collection.  i used a 3/4" circle punch and popped them up with foam tape and added some letter stickers.  used a spica gold glitter pen to highlight the sentiment that was already on the paper.  used some twill tape, twine, and again the circle punch with coordinating paper and glued them together on a pin.  it was quick and cute. hope you enjoy.
hugs. k.
