PostHeaderIcon On a Roll! 2 New Pages =)

Today was a really nasty day. With the terrible blizzard storm moving through so many states we are lucky to just get rain and cold weather. I stacked tons of firewood on the back porch last night for (1) I like a cozy fire and (2) I want to be prepared in case the electric goes and I can at least stay warm. I might build one in a little bit when I am here in the living room to stay but while I am up and around the house I will leave it be. My poor hubby is stuck up in Missouri (we live in La.) on his job. He didn't work today, which is not good but he is supposed to be sent to Indiana in the morning for some work. He does powerline construction so I am sure he might be staying busy. I am hoping for to make up the day of work he missed AND maybe a bit of overtime pay. I still haven't taken my P365 photos off of my camera...NOTE to self...just get it done!!!!

I spent a lovely hour over at Scrapbookgraphics gabbing with the ladies in the chatroom. I remember the first time I went. I was petrified. How does a newbie fit in when everyone seems friends already. From the first moment I felt very welcome. They host a game and issue a chatroom scrapping challenge for which you can win some prizes. But I think the most fun of all is getting to know everyone and trying to type while I giggle. So if you are not doing anything on Tuesdays at 9 pm EST...you should hop on over to SBG and peek in.

I am excited to say that I won this weeks chat challenge (it's all randomly picked) with my Twilight page. I have been meaning to scrap this photo since I had taken it and am very pleased with how it turned out.

I am also very pleased with my art journal page I did for Itinerary 4 in the Art Journal Caravan at SBG. What came to mind when I think of the word Stretch? There were other prompts I could have chosen but this on spoke to me.

I have scrapped/art journal more in January than I did the whole last half of 2010. I am finding that the art journaling really enhances my scrapping in a way totally unexpected. I think it is because there are really no rules you have to follow on your art journal pages and they are giving me a chance to express myself in a way that is both artistic and cathartic.

Thanx for popping by my blog and taking a peek!

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.♥
