>CreAction!

>I’ve been productive the past few days. I’ve been doing collages and small handmade journals (photos to come at a later date.) Tuesday, I showed mom how to use Alcohol Inks and she loved it! We made a few cards that day and again yesterday. You can see them on my Flickr page. I’m really happy with the results. The one I like the least is the Faerie coloured with Sharpies. I wanted to see what it would look like but I find it’s just too much colours with the background. But at least I tried, right?

Going downtown tonight with Catherine for the Jazz Festival. Haven’t been in quite a few years. It’ll be fun!

Tomorrow is a good day for more creating! I bought the latest Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and there’s some interesting projects I want to try. As well as in my Somerset Studio magazines! So many ideas to try out!!!

>A busy day

>After days, or rather weeks, of laziness, I finally decided to do some cleaning. I had quite a lot of dirty dishes. Now they’re all clean. I also had 3 weeks worth of clean clothes just piled up on my dresser. Now, all folded in the drawers or hung in the closet. I also tackled my mountains of papers and other craft supplies. It’s all neat and everything is in the right spot. Now, I have to use it! After all this cleaning and bending to pick up stuff, I’m tired and my ribs are a bit sore but that’s ok. Only means that I need to workout more.

I finished reading The Secret and Boy, did I have negative thoughts without knowing it! All those don’t wants and don’t dos!!! No more. Now I do what I love and state exactly what I want! I still haven’t read Vonnegut but that’s definitely happening this week (it’s due back in 10 days so I HAVE to read it.) I treated myself to another SARK book (this one I bought): Make Your Creative Dreams Real. Too bad my library doesn’t have any other of her books.

Yesterday, we were having dinner to celebrate my aunt Céline’s birthday. I made her a card and a necklace (from a kit bought at WalMart.) I forgot to take a picture of the card but it’s pretty much the same as the last one I made except in yellow tones and with flowers added to the bottom right corner. She loved it and the necklace too. Here’s a picture of the necklace. Not bad for a first attempt, huh?
