miss me?



hello again friends!
it's time to get back into the swing of things. Handsome and I are so very thankful for your sweet comments regarding our wedding- we send our love to each of you who left well wishes!
The recap: We are still living out of boxes. We have been waiting in escrow for our home and one thing just takes forever and well...we are tired but know everything happens for a reason. Hopefully good news to come soon. *wink*wink* Married life has been a blessing. I always feel like it's all a dream. 5 weeks married and people tell us we still have a happy glow :)

That being said, I barely unpacked a couple of my art supplies in time to create some art. I am guest designing for "Scrap for A Cure" for the month of June. Check it out: Scrap for a Cure. Sweet stuff :)

Here are my pages... but before I show you I must explain a little bit. Since packing up my things I came across a few pictures a friend of mine took of me(back in college) I wanted to toss them. I had to use pictures of me for an art project and came across extras during the move. Of course, I was embarrassed by them and hid them under a pile of books so no one passing by could make fun me ;P (tough family, jk!)
Then I thought, dang...I should probably use the pictures and make some updated art with them. I figured since my printer and camera were tucked away for a good while, why not?

So this page I was taking my first photography class & darkroom techniques course...i had saved this print of my index pictures. My little sister whom I love to call chicki posed for some random shots. I would beg her to let me take her picture, and like a cutie pie that she is, she was gracious and said yes. Except looking at the pictures of her now make me sad...she's growing up SO fast. And I just had to scrap the pictures for her and remind her how pretty and sweet she is on the inside as well. At least I think so *smiles.

This next one is a favorite. I always reminded my shy self to NOT BE AFRAID. Afterall, seeing all the crazy stuff in college can scare anyone. I had to remind myself to never fear my potential. Fear is only limiting. I challenged myself to seek out who I wanted to be and only think of that. Rather than try to conform to every other artist.

A page to remind me that we are always in transition. That spinner wheel is total cuteness!

just thinking out loud.
this page is more like a "note to self page"
you are silly if you care what other people think
what they say about you
how they judge you.
and they don't even know you.
silly indeed.
