I can't believe its been over a week without a post. Life sure does get busy and mixed up as I am sure everyone goes through it. This past week I just haven't had the time to be creative for me. But, I made a point yesterday to complete a project about ME! I was worried so much about everything else in my life and family and I didn't take the time I needed for me. Scrapbooking and creating really makes me a HAPPIER person, and I feel like I have accomplished something if I get to "play" a little bit every few days. I just didn't have that this past week and it showed.

So, I am making a pact with myself to take the time to just be at my space and create something or play with a product. I did that last night and it felt so good! I didn't know what would come out of it or if it would turn out nice, but it was fun to experiment and just let it happen! Try it this week! Take out a product and just try different things you can do to it or with it!

This is one of my favorite acrylic books I've made. Its a 6x12, my absolute favorite size! I can't wait to make a book this size, I am going to try tonight with a zutter. Its such a fun and funky size. These are all pictures of my "younger" years that are my favorites. I used the Love, Elsie Lola line, a bunch of alcohol inks (my favorite product to play with right now), felt, Hambly overlays, ribbon and rubons. These are my favorite colors, so this book made me smile. I hope you enjoy it too!

I have a suprise hopefully to share with everyone tomorrow... stay tuned.. hint.. its tiny, soft and precious!

Beautiful book. I know what you mean about not having time to create affecting your whole life. I hope to take your challenge and get my MDW projects completed this week.
