My Walk

it started with the lovely Kara and the art is found girls (LOVE the team she has! So beautiful and insanely talented) and it ended here.
please check it out :)

This is one of the most exciting journal's I've done. I can't stop taking it everywhere with me. I write in it. I look at it. I add to it :) It reminds me so much of art school. Sigh. I miss art school. Well, not the traffic part or the paying part. Just the creating and artistic expression free flowing everywhere. I want to go back sometimes. And in a way I did with this journal.

Another thing I'm EXCITED about is embroidery. I picked up some thread at Michael's this weekend and stayed off the computer just to embroider. Or. Well. TRY to embroider :) Danish and French AND Colonial! Watch out baby! Woot! Okay. I'm a nerd. I KNOW. Everyone in my house is pretty much like...oh.okay. sheesh. You sew like our grandma, and now this?! LOL.'s because I'm a middle child. Dare to be different! (any other weird middle childers out there?!)

So anyway. I'll explain the process for this book and bore you with the details with a post tomorrow :)
I also wanted to thank you girls for stopping by and saying Hi! WOW. I'm thankful because if you hadn't left a comment i would've never known some of you are drummers too! AND amazing crafters plus fab photogs. I'm having a really great time checking your blogs out. Please keep posting your blogs and sites that inspire you. LOVE learning more about you girls. I have somewhat of an idea on how I want to display my blog line links to cool sites.It just takes time. So thank you! I kept telling Mr. Handsome all about you girls. Hehee. Awesome. That's what you are.

Be back tomorrow with more info on "Moving Forward".
I find myself insanely boring and never know what to blog about. Any ideas? Or I'll just keep up my lame embroidery rant :)
Leave me some questions.

Hi !! That journal is totally to check out the link, thanks.
I am not the weird middle child, there are only 2 of us, I am the weird younger child......Think it might have something to do with having to entertain yourself !!!!
Have a great day :o)

I'm seriously excited for your little "tutorial" about how you made this, cause there's some techniques on here that I'm dying to try!!!

Embroidery is so not uncool. i just started a few months ago. I got an awesome book with really really cool [updated] petterns at Border's Books. It's called Sublime Stitching. I love it. On my blog today's post has two little people in a mini that I drew and embroidered. And that journal...Woah. Just. Amazing.

i'm cutting my trip short and going home soon. i'm really missing my hubby. i've got to get some time in with him. then i'll make some time to create.
