Just Life

create 08.

…what I’m calling my creative attempts. Not really liking the rhyme thing, but oh well, I wanted to get the year in there and I like “oh-eight” much better than “two thousand eight”. This is the cover of my paper adventure mini-book. Had much fun creating it yesterday with Katie.

and I started assembling my gratitude journal. Need to get it finished today since we’re already three days into the year! I’m using a 5×5 chipboard book from stampin up. and acrylic paint for the cover. never painted before and really appreciated Katie’s help at Blicks to select the paints, the colors, the brushes. and scraps of my favorite anna griffin and basic grey papers in addition to the creamy cardstock that was already in the book. plus a few stamps and punchouts. and ribbons. so that’s the vision as of 7:00 a.m.
(me painting!)

so far, I’m feeling really inspired about 2008 – seems like a year filled with possibilities for very good things. and I finished the brooke booties. and created my first photo in photoshop. and worked out yesterday.
