A Few More Photos

 "City of Lights" entry for this month's round robin journal. It was for one called "Oo La La" and has a theme of Paris. I had fun with this one. I like the style that came out.

 She has a good expression and inner strength. I am not sure about my nude mermaid, but she looks happy.
 Always a special day when we can meet up at the Corner House Coffee and get some group journaling in. Always makes me miss my sister though.
 My mom's journals are so cool and so very her.
 Just some pen pal treats. I am so behind on getting these all out. This was one of the projects I had wanted to complete today...soooo close!

 Easter was fun! My daughter had a lot of fun. I even multi-tasked a bit and got some bezels soldered onto my rings. We had our Easter Feast and sat back to take in a beautiful day! Again....missing my sister.

I hope you all are enjoying Spring and all it has to offer!!
I am back at my work desk with lots of high hopes....but it is bed time now.

Woah! Time Warp!

 OK. March is always kind of a black out for me due to all the focus I like to put on my daughter's Birthday celebrations, but loosing April too??? What the heck happened!?
Here was this month's round robin journal and my daughters annual Birthday crown. I had a lot of fun making it. I had hoped she would have worn it to her party, but she had her own plan. My mom and me made her dress due to every store around being sold out of Elsa from Frozen stuff. Now she will have a very original dress if she ever goes to a princess party. It was hard, but fun.

 It was an amazing party! The Solvang Bakery did an awesome job on her cake!! It was perfect and a big hit.
 Tea in Tiaras set up a beautiful Tea Party table, face paint and the wonderful Elsa herself. The snow queen really stole the show! All the little guests broke out in song and sang "Let it Go" for her (so she could rest her voice my daughter thought)

It was a lot of work, but a labor of love for my sweet little 6 year old girl. The only down side was that I got a terrible cold after the party and have never quite fully recovered. My day job has gotten very hectic and more sleep has been required depriving me of my night life which is where most all of my art is made. I am still not 100% I am trying to forgive myself and move on, but I am struggling. Updating my blog is a step in the right direction, but I was hoping to get a few more things done as well. I just have no idea where all these months have gone. My Blog has suffered, I will "rebuild"...I am getting back on track.
