feeling better?

I am.
I really am. I buckled down and committed to physical therapy once a week...and there is progress. Had to change therapists midway through. But I'm happy with the change. I like hope. I want to get better. Building back the muscles in my left arm. woo hoo! I promise to not overdo it. I don't want to end up looking like my governator...Arnold Terminator. :) wink wink. (ps: please take the time to stretch and step away from the computer every now and then! Srsly. I hope you do. This video is just crazy funny and healthy all in one.

My macbook needs help. Or maybe just a new battery. Whatever it is... it's making me a little crazy. ( I completely need my computer for work and when it starts going crazy, it makes me crazy... or just crazier lol.) So please be patient with me if I don't make it back here soon. And if I owe you an e-mail, I will e-mail you soon! In the mean time, back to the apple store we go. :(

So just sneaking in to share some Kenner Road art. But first. Let's cheer up and pretend we just bought a tall favorite something something from starbucks and a cute tasty little muffin with Zero calories. We are both wearing a cute something from Anthro we bought shamelessly. And we are both having a fabulous hair day. Oh you look fabulous! yes? Who's with me?

Sit. relax. enjoy some sweet eye candy.


take your time

happy love

sweet. I feel better. thanks for following along. :)

I've got a birthday party to plan.
An HOA meeting to attend (our first one! I kinda feel like it's going to be just like the Gilmour Girls town hall meetings. All crazy and interesting :) I plan on having fun at least. lol)
An office to move
A computer to heal.
Some house painting to do.
Some exercises to do ( i really don't like running. but hey, gotta get this body moving. So woop-de-do)
And hopefully a nap in between :)
This week is going to be a great week. One day at a time.
Stay sweet.

I'm a bit crazy

;P And totally for Crazy Daisy. I think Jennifer and Kimberly are the rockinest chicks around. To be best friends AND take their love for scrapbooking and turn it into a cute scrapbooking kit club is really the sweetest thing you can share with a best friend. Not a lot of my closest friends scrapbook. I'm jealous :) Sometimes you just want someone to understand what rub-ons are and how they work and why you love them so much. I'm pleased to say Mr. Handsome knows. *smiles* ahhhhh. poor guy. lol

Little Things

I had the pleasure of creating with their August Kit. And look at the sweet album! Oh I definitely am swooning over this little guy. I don't have pictures in it yet. I am going to stalk my sisters and take pictures of them to add to this little beauty. I took the rings that hold the pages together and undid the rings to separate and make 2 albums. The other I hope to work on something for my sister (whom doesn't scrapbook and thinks scrapbooking is handing me a bag full of photos and some jolee's embellishments.lol) and her family. For this I spray painted the side the butterfly was printed on. Let dry. Then applied rubons from the kit to the opposite side. SOSOSOSOSO easy.


I'm very much in love with the color combo they picked for this kit. The blues, the oranges and the reds are very appealing. And that Jenni Bowlin Damask paper is very pretty. I felt so bad spray painting over it. But I think I love the bold black spray paint over it just as much. I'm a sucker for spray paint. I would say something like that :)

Know what else is driving me crazy? My art studio. Oh geez. Can I cram anymore into a small space? I think I can. And I have. My Stuff consists of: sewing, crochet, fine art, spray paints, papers, embellishments etc etc. stuff stuff stuff. I can't take it anymore. Once drawers start to fill up and not close, it's time to do something. So I'm taking it a drawer at a time and letting go of tons of stuff. It makes my heart happy to be giving this "stuff" away. And I don't think twice about it. I like it when my drawers close. hehee. ( My fav thing in this layout is the crochet flower in the kit. SO stinkin' cute. I want to learn to make some really bad.

{Be BraVe *!*}
Be BraVe *!*

Do you ever feel you are brave enough? I generally feel like I hesitate, over think and shy away from living a life without fear. Without regret. I have to constantly remind myself to be brave. Don't worry to much. I usually feel free and lighter when I am brave. Take the plunge and fly. Even if it means just falling with style (like my friends in Toy Story). I was driving by the park recently and I was attracted to the pretty kites in the sky. I LOVE kites. I used to have a Strawberry Shortcake one when I was younger. I decided then that I needed to make a kite so this is my little one. With a bold reminder to Be BraVe*!*

{Beauty is Everywhere}
Beauty is Everwhere
I don't think I've ever scrapbooked this picture before. It's seriously one of my favorites I took while in Santa Barbara a few years ago. Right before I sent my camera crashing to the ground. Yes. I'm clumsy. And Mr. handsome says it's quiet entertaining to watch too. But hey, at least I got this shot! The picture was too dark (because of the blacktop in the picture) so I cut around the butterfly and voila! The picture not only stood out more, but it looked brighter and bolder. I made a yo-yo flower out of the ribbon in the kit. Added a cute button and sparkly butterfly confetti and a splash of spray paint. It's like magic. Don't be afraid to cut around your subject in your photos. Give it a try :)

cool cool.
On my list for today... laundry (yay!), de-clutter art studio, make dinner (mmm... steak, creamy mashed potatoes and spring salad) learn to crochet pretty flowers (thank you youtube) and maybe shop for new jeans (how come my favs are always the ones to shrink!?)
Sending love to you on this beautiful Monday morning! And remember, get CRAZY!!!
It's now or never :)
