PostHeaderIcon Some Art Journalin' and P365'n

I was able to get my coupons all clipped last night but that's only because I am such a horrid insomniac which in turns makes it where I just wanna sleep till noon when I finally do get to sleep. It's not helping either that my DD has been spending time over at her Dad's and I get a free pass on getting up early and taking her to school each morning. Today's adventure though had Shaina's Dad taking her to the local clinic....the irony is that her Mama Nett (Grandmother) was walking in at the same time with her cousin Amber. They ended up sharing room cuz it was so busy which was no problem because it got them seen faster. Official diagnosis for both of them was the flu. They each got handed a mask, a doctor's excuse for school and a prescrition for some meds. It's been an afternoon of homemade chicken soup, 7-Up, tylenol and sherbert ice-cream and lotsa snuggly time in the bed.

I have really embraced Art Journaling as a way to express the emotions that is somewhat harder to convey with words. I honestly really used to see pages like this and think they were super lame~or just pretty~but when you understand the symbolism behind the images they become powerful works of the heart. I took a chance and applied for Beth Rimmer's creative team and much to my amazement I was accepted. The first kit she let me play with is Caught in the Act! It's got so many fun circus related items that you are sure to have a blast creating something awesomely wicked with it.

This is a page I made for one of the weekly prompts over at Scrapbookgraphics in Tangie's Art Journal Caravan. Click on the page to view the credits and read about the symbolism in the piece if your interested.

I love coupons! lol! I show up at Kroger with a huge stack of them and the people behind me in line evil eye me, but I don't care. You can save some serious $$ if you do it right.

FYI, I moved to Yes, it's been a pain! Thanks!

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
