Ok so this is the 10th Rocking Your World of 2011 - where is the time flying! I tell you things are all crazy around here!
So what has life had in store for me this week in my list of gratefuls
First of all beginning of the week, when hubby and I were working on crafting things (he was cutting chipboard books out and I was painting them) we had the Pink DVD on from her last tour and had a bit of a dance to a slow track near the end, it started out as a hug and then I just enjoyed the dance with him - so ultimately grateful for that!
Grateful for said 10 year old who makes me smile so often - Wednesday I arrived home with a brand new dressing gown for him - one of those ultra soft fluffy ones that I finally managed to track down, both me and his Dad already have one and find that we get more hugs and cuddles when we are wearing them LOL - anyway he was so impressed with it that he got changed into his pyjamas and dressing gown ready for bed at 4.25pm - honestly - giggled so much - his Dad was utterly bewildered when he walked through the door about five o'clock to find him all dressed for bed!
Also said 10 year old making me play both monopoly and bingo on Wednesday night because he let me do both whilst multi-tasking (painting chipboard books) at the same time - it meant the monopoly game wasn't half as painful as it would be normally and bingo was almost tolerable.
Next up beautiful blogs that make me smile when I read them - you are all amazing thank you for enlightening me and brightening my life.
In particular this week there has been that path that I've followed - you know the one, you read a blog, click a link, read another, click a link and before you know it you struggle to remember how you got there but you are very glad you did - let me see if I can get the links - so you too can be graced with amazingly talented crafty and giving people
So this post from
whose blog I follow got me reading her great 52 week challenge thinking of doing a mass catch up on this - it is a new challenge and not one you'll have seen before because it's running live now and in it and she refers to her friend
whose blog is gorgeous documenting the most AMAZING art journal pages - I mean stand back and take a breath - honestly out of this world (scroll down to see and then double click for close ups). Now Dede as well as being ultra talented likes to show others what she does by steaming her work on U-stream
I've only had chance to watch a couple up to now but they are all amazing this one in particular really struck a cord
which after watching meant that I went off and created this
which is so far removed from my usual 'style' that I've had to stand back and admire it quite often - I don't just like it I actually love it
So massive thanks to Darcy for sharing some of her inspirational sources and Dede for sharing her amazing talent and motivating me on my art journaling once again!
Then on to UK Scrappers for their great digital downloads at the minute - mini bunting in union jack either muted pinks and the standard colours, enlarged bunting and cupcake flags all in one - I'm not always great with digital scrapbooking (I like paint and glue and tactile things too much) and when they tell me to unzip things my brain goes into meltdown and I think it will be really complicated and i don't have the time or the energy to try and self learn photoshop, but these little bunting babies are just PDF files - even I can download those and print them LOL and they've saved me an awful lot of work in a journal I'm working on - so thank you UK Scrappers for Rocking My world this week this is the link to the download
