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.

Debee!! Welcome back; I totally missed you! Happy 5 weeks of married life. You will look back on these days and love the memories- even if they're not perfect and 'tidy' and without boxes. You're writing the story of your life together with your handsome hubby and that is wonderful. Soak it all up!
I also have to say that your heart must be big and full and beautiful because the way it spills over to your pages is all of that! Love these and the thoughts you share about each one. Thank you. Keep being you. You're a pretty special lady.
Happy June...xoxo.

I did miss you!
So happy to see a post from you and read that all is well. I'm finally getting the last of my boxes unpacked after my move so I understand living out of them.

Gorgeous pages, of course!

Mandi Johnson said...

I love everything you've made, as usual. Debee, I wish I had classmates (or teachers, for that matter) like you at our art school. Seriously, you're just all about the art and being you- instead of being pretentious and all that jazz.

Anyway, I think you are a dear, and a wonderful artist! I'm glad things are going well with you and the hubs!

Erin said...

Welcome back and belated congratulations on you marriage!
