Mixed Media Project

It's been a very long time since I have felt really creative!! So I have really jumped out of the box and tried a mixed media project..I made this for my youngest sister for Valentines Day.  We have decided to get tatoos in honor of my brother-hers is going to say The heart has a mind all it's own.  I actually love that quote, so I made this in tribute to my brother.  I am not sure that I actually did it correctly but I do like the way it turned out! And My sister really loved it :)

Happy Monday!!!

It's Monday again...and so begins the week. I have finally gotten a permanent position  at the place I have been temping for 8 months. I have to say I am pretty excited about that!! And now I can get overtime as long as I have the work to do!! And I do :)

Yesterday my sisters and I got together with My cousin Patti and my Aunt Linda. She lives in Arizona , and we have not seen her in 14 years maybe. It is so crazy how time flies . It was so good to see her. I just wish we could have spent more time with her. Since we have had so much loss this year in my family it makes you realize how important family is and how important it is to stay in touch!!

I believe after work if I am not so tired I can't see straight I am going to finish making my Christmas gifts for my sisters and start on my exchange gift for work. Oh my gosh ...its already 6:20 am and I have to get ready for work..I will be posting later with some pictures ..Everyone , anyone who reads this have a Wonderful Monday!!!

Jewelry ........

I was fooling around with making first love..I sometimes have thoughts of being a great jewelry designer someday!! LOL Anyway its what I love most..I was playing around with the Tim Holtz tokens and these are some of the things I came up with..I also was experimenting with his word bands.

I think they are kind of neat- very simple..I like them :)

A while ago I said I would post the pages I have done in my smash book..I guess I am trying to get the idea that you just smash!! lol I only have two pages of the whole summer but it is a start.

I realized I have tons of stickers that I have bought over the years and never used them..and thought this would be a good place to use them.

I am also working on homemade smash books for my sisters, they both liked this idea of smashing so I thought I would make home made ones for them for Christmas :)

Summer is almost over .......

With summer coming to an end soon, I am going to start all my projects for the winter...I have all the stuff to make my homemade junk journal/smash books.  I am making those for some very special people for Christmas presents.  Which I believe they will LOVE!!!

I have started working on my Smash book , entering somethings that I have done this summer. ( I will be posting pictures of that)

And I have been working on a jewelry line...which I have had a lot of positive response on. Of course my sister Heather is a huge fan of my jewelry :) 
So she is always very encouraging!!

And finally I will be painting and organizing my craft room/ studio..My sister Jennifer has said she is going to help me with that.  So I am getting pretty excited about that..I have picked out the paint , now I just have to pick out some curtains for my room.

And with all that I have started a 2nd job, working with my brother in law.  I will be doing all his paper work for his business.  The problem is it will be Long hours to start only because there is so much right now but as soon as it gets all in his new computer system it should be fairly easy to do :) and maintain.

So I will be pretty busy!!!

Stay tuned for pictures of my smash book :)

Just a Random Post.....

This has been so far not the best summer ever....June 22 , 2012 my brother
Robert Lynn Blood Jr  passed away suddenly..I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around that. I was fortunate to see him the night before he passed away.  We had a few laughs and when it was time for me to leave , we hugged each other and said we Loved eachother.  I feel very lucky to have had that moment with him.  Words can not even say How MUCH I Miss him!!! RIP
Then on July 7th , 2012 we had another HUGE loss for our family my Sister Jennifer's Husband passed away in his sleep from Cardiac arrest..Darrell R Russell...Darrell was one of the Best People I had the pleasure of knowing!! He was a Excellent husband to my sister, An Awesome father to my nephews and Wonderful Brother in Law !! RIP
All I can say is not a minute goes by that I do not think of them both..My heart just aches..and most of the time I am just so sad.  I know in time I will not always feel so sad, and when I think of both of them and the momories.. I will still miss them both very much!! But, I will be able to think of them and smile and remember all the happy times!!
