a mini journal

my dear friend, danny, had an idea for a mini journal that is folded from one sheet of paper.  it really is the cutest little booklet.  the theme is text/quotes.  this is one my little spreads for the journal. 

this particular page is especially important to me, because just recently someone felt that by me following my bliss i was being selfish and not caring about anyone else other than myself. 

i realize that life is too short to find our value in anything or anyone outside of ourselves.  if there is one thing i learned (over and over again) in my life so far it is that we can't please everyone all of the time - it is most surely an impossible feat. howener, i do know we can love and honor ourselves for who we are.  i hope you will follow your bliss.

making buttons

it is funny how one thing can lead to another and another and all of a sudden you find yourself creating something that you've never done before.  so it was the other day when i had my paper clay out.  i found myself making tiny buttons.  i made a few others but these are the few i had time to paint and put crystal effects on.  i hope to find myself using them in my art projects. i am really quite fond of those little birds and want to make many more of them.  so what have you found yourself creating that might be different from what you normally do?

monkey business

holidays are so much fun when you share them with people you love.  i was blessed to spend the day with my grandson, benjamin, on halloween.  i got to dress him up in his little monkey suit and take him out trick or treating.  we had so much fun!
