A new week!

Unlike most people I don't hate Mondays. I like the possibility of a brand new week ahead.
I have lots to do these days. I have a Drs. appointment tomorrow, I have to go renew my driver's license, create more pieces for Handmade by ANILU, I want to go to the movies and see Dan in Real Life and send out my first ever circle journal!!

The girls from Work In Progress' DT are gonna be my first cj participants and I am so excited!!
I used a little 6x6 Heidi Swapp mini and SEI paper. I kinda like the way it came out :)








Here are some of the new pieces I added to Etsy ... I love the color of these pearls and it's just a perfect necklace for fall.
The red coral branch necklace is my favorite piece by far. I sooo want one...






Another thing I've wanted to do for a long time was make a page about my BFF Barb. I loved playing with this Prima paintables paper from Studio Calico's October kit. I love how it turned out and I hope she likes it too. I just have to do a little journaling and, voila!
Isn't she beautiful?!?! The best part is that she is beautiful inside AND out. She is my support in hard times and my scrap buddy extraordinaire. I don't know what I'd do without her.
Love ya', Barb!!!



Last, but not least, like many, I am into felt and stitching in my pages. I love the texture and dimension it gives to a page. This is a little detail on a LO I did last week.




I'm off to start the day and get stuff done around the house. Have a wonderful start of the week!!

I love the painted paper by prima. You did an amazing job with the blending of colors. It's so wonderful to always have someone to talk too. Both of you are amazing women and I'm so happy to call you both my friends. I love the stitching. I want a class next time we get together...
