Etsy, 21 Days, Mojo, RAK!

Have you been over to ScrapMojo lately? Well, if you haven't, you have to go check out our 4 new design team members!!! Awesomeness. The new challenge is up as well. It's a Dr. Seusse themed. Use one of the printouts supplied from the links and use the title, "Oh the places you'll go." Here's my take on the challenge. This is Sebastian at SEVEN months. He's developed really fast. Here he is walking around, like it wasn't a big deal. lol.
My little munchkin. Ahhhhh, I miss them being all teenie tiny. Now, this is what I deal with:

Anberlin got some new rain boots, but I couldn't find any for Sebastian. Well, he's taken matters into his own hands and just steals them from his sister. LOL. I think we may go try to find some for him tomorrow.




Here are my pages for days 3-6 for Rhonna Farrer's 21 Day Challenge. I've been using watercolors alot lately. I'm still trying to master the colors and whatnot, but I do like them. And you know what!?? Rhonna Farrer herself left me a comment on my last post! OMG. I was giddy last night. LOL!!! I love her work and she's definately a scrapper/designer I admire. So thanks Rhonna!

DAY 3: "Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." George Bernard Shaw

DAY 4: "Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work." Aristotle

DAY 5: "A wish changes nothing. A decision changes everything." Unknown

DAY 6: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson

My Etsy has reopened! I have a few necklaces up. It actually comes with a pair of matching earrings. Totally cute. And to celebrate, I'm giving away a RAK! Leave me a comment and I'll pick 3 winners to win a set! Woo hoo!! I'll pick in a week. http://www.jessicasummers.etsy.com









I kinda feel my creative juices surging again. :) So, how would you feel about some papers designed by me? Or maybe a font? All of that just may become a reality in the near future. Eeee! Totally excited about that. Ok, off to work on some stuff.

Michelle said...

I totally want a Jess font and papers too! Lovely necklaces. You know I dig them. I adore that Sebastian is wearing Anberlin's boots. And that is super early for a boy to be walking. My friend Eva's little boy Josiah isn't even crawling yet and he'll be one next month. Love the layout and the album. Congrats on the comments too. You are amazingly talented. SO glad you're getting your creative juices again!

Hi Jessica, nice to meet you to!

It's so funny, me writing to you in german. I just assumed you'd be german....

I love your artistic journal, it's very inspiring. I used to draw a lot before, but now the only drawing I do is on my scrapbooking pages (more doodling). It feels good getting a personal comment from Rhonna, doesn't it? I was SO surprised when I actually got an e-mail from her. And she's so nice! It made my day.

Hope you're enjoying living in Germany. I can only imagine how tuff it must be, especially if you don't speek the language. Congrats on the drivers license by the way, driving in Germany is quite a bit different to driving in the US.

Hi Jessica,
do you remember me? Monica Barrientes from SA?
Anyway, you have no idea, but I love to read your blogs and about the kids and see all your photos! You are extrememly talented!
I can't help but wish the kids could have met, I think they would have gotten along so well! oh well...

I never leave comments (I'm bad like that, I never do for anyone! lol!) but seeing as how you are drawing names, I figured now would be the time! I love those sets! The little birdie completes it!

Be blessed!
