Eye "candy"

I just wanted to share some sweet, Christmas cuteness. We will be decorating our Gingerbread house today, so I was inspired by some of these.

Thanks all for now.

For your viewing pleasure...

Here's some layouts I recently finished for Design you Life @ BPS. They are all pretty simple, but I was primarily focusing on the design principles of line and color. The journaling is a little hard to read, but if you are interested click on the image and it should open in a larger format.

I am working on a few other projects and will hopefully have something to share in a day or two.

I've got a crush...

On the magnificent photographer who took these magical, evocative, inspirational shots.

The photographers name is Tim Walker. He is a London base fashion photographer. I just love his captivating whimsical style! He had an exhibition earlier this year at London's Design Museum. He has an awesome 363 page coffee table book called Tim Walker Pictures that I am lusting after. This book is full of more than just pictures, it is full of art. Art created and captured through the lens of a photographic genius.

Special Delivery

Remember this?

Well I am happy to say that at long last I am holding this in my hands! I had no idea that one little piece of paper would be so difficult to come by. I supposed I underestimated it's popularity. I have waited so long for it that now that I have it I am not sure what to do with it. It is almost like the Holy Grail of scrapbooking paper. Maybe I should build a special shelf for it and display it for all to see. Should I hold on to it like some special cargo or actually use it? Of course I will use it, but I will definitely have a plan in mind before I start cutting it up. I am not going to hunt this little baby down again, so I am going to make darn sure I maximize the heck out of it.

That is all I really wanted to say today, just share the good news about my "special delivery"! Have a great day!

Catching up...

I have been a bad, bad blogger as of late. I keep meaning to post, I'm just not sure if I have anything worth blogging about going on.
Since my last post we celebrated a quiet Thanksgiving here at home. It was very nice and relaxing. Everyone helps to prepare a little part of our meal.
We have decorated the house for Christmas already, with the exception of the tree. That will come this weekend.
We celebrated my husbands birthday on Monday. It was very mellow and low key. The next day he left for a work "retreat" up in Tahoe.
I have been gathering items to donate for the kids' school silent auction on Friday and have successfully mailed out our Christmas cards for this year! WooHoo! I have many gifts already purchased and a check list of those left to buy.
We will be going to a performance of "The Singing Christmas Tree" this weekend. I am excited about that! I have also decided to do a December daily album inspired by Ali Edwards' project on her blog. I am enjoying the process so far.
I will be wrapping up my class at BPS with Cathy Zielske at the end of this month. It has been a wonderful class and I am so glad that I took it. ALSO, I just learned that I won a free spot in another class at BPS called "The Gift of Words". I was so excited when I found out!!!!!
So there is a SMALL glimpse into my life and why I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. I promise to try to be a bit more consistent in the future.
