Quick Update

I'm busy with playing mom and housewife and aspiring manufacturer designer. lol.



I whipped this cute little ATC out in like 30 minutes this morning. It was extra credit time for Project Catwalk and I have a lot of catching up to do, despite my win this week. lol. I really want the prize! A free year of kits. O_O




Thanks to all for the kind words about not making Hambly. You win some, you lose even more (in my case). Ah well. I have to admit, I've been feeling down in the dumps lately from all the rejection I've been getting. So I made this layout, for the latest Scrap Mojo.

journaling reads:

"I took my Power in my Hand
And went against the World-
'Twas not so much as David had
But I was twice as bold
I aimed my Pebble
but Myself was all the one that fell
Was it Goliath was too large
Or was myself too small? "
-Emily Dickinson

It's one of my favorite poems by Emily Dickinson.
Sometimes I like the idea of a realistic David and Goliath. You can't always win in the end, but kudos to you for trying, right?

But those feelings are put aside as I am now working on yet another dt call. Cross your fingers for me.

The photo was taken of a plant I found one morning growing out of my sink, of all places. How about that for symbolism??

That's it for now! I'm in the middle of working on a project that I am totally excited about and can't wait to share it with everyone! :D

I really hope you win that year worth of kits! You rock. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on not making it to Hambly. They have a very specific look that made it and its ok to be different. Your style rocks!

Cute new lo. I hope things go great with your new dt that you are applying for.
