1) http://www.everybody-art-challenge.blogspot.com/ - sketch
2) www.creativecraftchallenges.blogspot.com- stars
This sketch was so fun I had a blast using that glittery foam, I have no idea where i got it but I want more!
The next picture i wanted to share with you is one that we took when we were waiting for hubby to pick up a jacket that he bought off of Kijiji. We were sitting by this beautiful lake in Victoria Harbour Ontario and the sun was setting and it was so beautiful!
The third and fourth pictures are me and my hubby making hemp necklaces, bracelets and anklets, we have a couple of vendors that buy them off of us and we need the extra money so we have been pretty much doing this constantly for the past few days to bring some extra cash in. Isn't my hubby cute?
Last picture is of me, and I look so big its because my knees are underneath and stretching out my nightie, no by no means am I skinny but this picture makes me look weirdly proportioned
Well hope more people start coming back around I fell kinda lonely in my corner of the blogging world I have had a few comments which I greatly appreciate, I am always checking to see if someone has visited, I know that my blog has been inactive but I'm back!
If you read this can you please read my last post I'd love to get some answers on previous questions I have asked in my last entry thanks everyone!

You Are 61% Creative
You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word.
You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times.

Here are 2 more pages from my Journal, as you can see the yellow tabs at the top, those are unfinished pages and this is why I can only post a few at a time. I still only have one entry for my giveaway! Is anyone out there reading my blog? I miss you guys, come back please!!!! I'll come visit you and then you come visit me ok? Am I talking to myself? I think I am....lol.
Friday, August 6, 2010
1) This is the first page of my journal, though it is not the first page in the book, that is still blank, I am one of those people who don't know what to put on the very first page...
3) The next two pages are what I am proud of, there is writing in the word itself but its hard to read because I used a gel pen. On the second page re pictures of what I described on the previous page.

Here are the pictures I said that I was going to upload in my last post, blogger finally let me do it! This first one here is a digital scrap booking piece I did for my bestie from a program that my mom bought, not sure what it is called, this is only my second attempt at digital scrap booking, the first was for my dad for fathers day, which I didn't get a picture of. This now hangs above her water cooler in her kitchen.
The second one I did was also for the same person, I used the technique which is called zentangles, the website for this is http://www.zentangle.com/.
The third one is what is going to be a very large wall piece, I am doing my Husband and my names, that's 11 letters, 11 frames!
Ok so I decided that I am going to do a giveaway to bring back my readers and hopefully some new ones, I am giving away a personalized picture like the one's that you see above, it can have your initial, your name, any name for that matter, a short quote, a simple shape whatever you wish, If your name is drawn on Wed July 28 I ill get to work and make one how you wish! i can do colors of your choosing, or just black and white. To enter here's what you got to do.

I made this card for my Mom, she really likes cats and hello kitty and I wanted to make her something that would display pretty. This is my first time making one of these cards and they look pretty but are a pain in the butt, there was alot of trial and error here! I am not entering it into any challenges because my OCD told me not to. Confused? I was planning on entering it into challenges but then something in my mind told me that something bad would happen if I did. Sounds silly but this happens to me all of the time, like if I am making a collage and I cut something out for it and go to use it something tells me not to again because something will happen or if I check to see if the door is locked and then walk away and say did I check it, when I try to reassure I did and walk away, I get a bad feeling and must go check it again. All of this on top of my anxiety whew! I'm not going to lie I like entering challenges with the hopes of winning, especially if there is a prize, because I still haven't gotten out to spend that money I still can't leave the house, and I need new card making stuff, oh well hopefully my conscience will let me enter a card tomorrow. I sure wish Santa would come now, cause sending my husband shopping isn't going to work and Santa knows what a card maker needs to make her happy, too bad I have 7 months till Christmas for him to come!
Thought I would share a pic of my lovely bratty spoiled kitty "Princess" Belle. She thinks she is a dog, she barks, its cute, and weird but I love her.

I found out today that I made top 5 at www.craftycardmakers.blogspot.com!
Yay me, made my day a little brighter!
I made a card for my Niece's 10th Birthday, really wanted to accomplish something today and I am so glad that I finished a card! I used a freebie image from Dustin Pike who is an awesome illustrator and creates amazing digi images if you haven't been to his blog you should go, his images are awesome www.dustinpike.blogspot.com. I just wish there was a way I could buy his images because I would in a second, the ones he has for sale are drool worthy, and I would by all of them they are very low priced and well worth it, but alas I cant purchase something over the computer and pass cash through the computer screen or I would.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
www.charismacards.blogspot.com - Girly with flowers
www.craftycardmakers.blogspot.com - Desert Island (can't live without sticky gems need to have them!)
www.creativecraftchallenges.blogspot.com- blooms (flowers)

Whew didn't think I would qualify for that many! looking for these challenges keeps me busy, take up a good hour to go through my list to See what I qualify for and then each morning I go through each of the challenge blogs to see if they have a new challenge. I am learning with my anxiety that I have to keep my mind focused on other things so I don't have time to think about my anxiety so if going through all of the challenges takes up some of my time then its all good, I need some excitement in my life and I love the anticipation of entering challenges! Hope you don't find it rude I enter so many.
Really want to leave the house I am getting cabin fever I think, I am going stir crazy, and I want to stock up my stash of craft supplies so bad, I was talking with Ryan today and we realized I have pretty much been confined to the house for almost 6 months! That's crazy, I have been sick for almost 3 years but its this past 6 months have been the worst, and the past month the absolute worst. How much longer nobody knows but I know I am not going to wake up tomorrow and be better and that's kind of depressing. Anyways enough of the depressing stuff for today, just feels good to get it out, you know what I mean?

Here is a list of the stuff I got from left to right

2) 12 Spools of ribbon (only eight shown)- $2.00 for 12
3) Wool - $1.00 for all
4) Slippers (so comfortable) $5.00
5)huge box of glitter leaves flowers etc. (click on pic for closer look)- $3.00 for box
6) maze book- 25 cents
7) In next picture see that desk? I got it for $5.00, yes you are reading that right, awesome deal! We didn't have a computer desk and this family was moving and wanted to get rid of it because they had bought their son anew one for their new home!
Total spent at Garage Sales= $17.75
Pretty good don't you think? Its a full moon tonight and it is pretty If you live somewhere that it is just becoming nighttime now, look out the window for the moon!
It is just the same as losing a cat or a dog it is really sad, they were our babies and we will miss them RIP Disney and Coco. ( Trying not to cry as I type this)
Ok I'm going to change the subject to get my mind off of that. Thank you for your advice on where to spend that money, I have yet to go shopping because I have not been well enough to leave the house, I tried twice and couldn't do it, I got frustrated because I don't know why this is the way it is for me but it's frustrating to not beable to go shopping and from the way things are going doesn't look like its going to be anytime soon. I want new stuff to play with!
Today I am going to try and make some cards, I have been coloring some images I just havent been up to the craft room which is another thing too, I feel comfortable and relaxed in my room, and to go upstairs is a big challenge for me but I want to try today!

So yes more about the hospital as some have been asking, the waiting list is so long that they think I will get in around January, yes you read that right, is that not horrible? I don't know how they expect me to go on for that much longer, I don't know how much worse things could get and how much worse I can feel let alone how long I have to do it for, everyday is a struggle and I hate it. When I get better I am going to fight the system to get this whole waiting list thing changed, the money is not provided by the government to fund more mental health facilities therefore the wait times are terrible, voices need to be heard things need to be changed, and when I am stronger my voice will be heard! ( OK enough of the ranting and political stuff)
I so would like to get out of the house, and do some supply shopping its something that I just cannot send my Husband to do, he doesn't understand, there are thing I need and can't go out to get them!
My husband made this card for his mother and he said I could post it I think that he did an awesome job, even though the picture I took of it isn't that great

Whew now that's out of the way, hope I win! I tried to make an easel card because I have never made one and they are much easier then I thought, this will be a card I make quite often, I really enjoyed it. I chose to make a get well card I guess to cheer my self up, I have been feeling really bad this past week, the hubby says its the worst that its been in the three years that I have been sick. I have decided not to leave the house, because I cant make it past the front door, I am going stir crazy being trapped in here though but I know going out will be much worse. I am OK while my meds are fresh in me but they wear off quick, and then I have to wait till my next dose, so right now I am fine. but wont be long enough to go anywhere. No shopping for me. Anyways enough about the sad stuff, I don't want to drive you all away, because who wants to read a depressing blog?

I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday past, and he told me that he didn't think that just going in to see him once a week was enough. He says my anxiety and other problems are more serious then what he thought when he decided to take me on as a patient so......
Next week he is going to be starting a process to send me to a hospital in Whitby Ontario which deals with mental disorders. I will be staying there for I don't know how long, he feels that I need round the clock treatment so I can get better sooner, because it has almost been 3 years that I have been this sick.
It's kind of embarrassing to think that I am going to be in a mental hospital, not something to be proud of, I have been in the hospital before but not one just dedicated to mental illness and it was hard, because despite the anxiety I am functional, I am not a danger to anyone, and I can think clearly, I don't like that anxiety is under the category mental illness because of stereotypes, its sounds worse then it really is.
I don't know exactly when I will be going, could be a week or even a month from now, it is when they have the room for me, its just a waiting game, hopefully I will have more creations to post before then but if not please do stick around because I will be back, I'm just letting everyone know now whats up just in case.

Look, there is a surprise, a baby chick who wants to party because it's spring time and he is here in time for Easter! ( I am sleep deprived just go with me...)
Whew that was a lot and now I have to go back and link them all to my blog post. I had a lot of fun making this card i like that the little birdie is hidden and I used a brad so the egg would open and you can see inside, I personally haven't seen this anywhere so I feel pretty smart, because usually I am not so creative. This is on purple card stock but you can't really tell again they are not the greatest pictures.
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
This is for the challenge over at Lexi's creations, the theme is Easter and I am also entering to try and become a DT member for this blog, I tried a gazillion times to take this picture, and a s I have never made a card like this I didn't know how to photograph it but regardless I think that it came out OK. Sorry not much chatter tonight but I am feeling kind of crummy, Will post later!
Tuesday, March 23, 2010
In the picture it looks like it says 20th but in real life it does say 28th! I plan to fill the inside of the card with memories over the past year, make it like a collage, I just didn't want to do it before as this card is being entered into a challenge. Her special nickname just between us is Dolly but her real name is Tanya and my nickname is Sunni, but I'm sure you can see that on the card.
I have two more cards made but I am having a problem getting a good enough picture of them so I will keep trying and have them up soon!

The weather has been great here in my part of Canada, warm temperatures, no snow it has been making me feel in better moods, hopefully the white stuff is gone for good!
I am sorry i haven't been posting I have been busy trying to get stuff unpacked but I do promise that this blog is going to get way better and you are going to want to hopefully put it on your morning coffee blog hop list. I am thankful for all of you, my friends that I have met (virtually of course) I wish I could meet you all in person, but you never know!
Today I want to share with you the blog of a truly amazing woman that I have never met but intend to when we eventually take our trip to the UK.
http://lynsblogger.blogspot.com/. Her blog and everything on it is beautiful and very inspiring, its the type of stuff that makes your jaw drop to the floor, I have mentioned before I was lucky enough to receive some of her work, and I have to tell you, shes got massive talent. Also very recently I asked for some stamped images and a few of you replied that you would send me some, She sent me a package that made me cry, along with several and I mean several stamped images, she sent me a ton of Magnolia stamps, yes the real thing, actual stamps. I just find it truly amazing the heart that she has to send me what she did, I can't believe the generosity to someone that she hasn't even met, really am I that special? She sure made me feel that way.
When I am straightened out with my craft room and health permitting I plan to show you who I am as well, I love putting smiles on other peoples faces and I think that is what is going to make me better and getting my life on track and that is doing what i am here to do and that is make a difference in someone else's life, I have big dreams in my life to make changes in others lives and that is what gets me through the day!
Hope the weather is nice where you are, Good night/Morning everyone!
Sunday, March 7, 2010
On an exciting note I cooked Supper for my family for the first time ever tonight and it was horrible! It was called Chicken Strata, I don't know what I did wrong, I followed a recipe but i tell ya....eww
I am going through Olympic withdrawal as well, absolutely love watching them and now they are over = (
I really like the picture I previously posted of my Niece with the airplane so I struck the same pose hopefully soon we will have time to go down to the Airport soon and do some more plane spotting and i can try to think of some cool picture ideas!
I want to try to post a video on my blog of my wedding in Cuba as well as other pictures that I compiled with music. It's a DVD that I put together for everyone that couldn't make it to our wedding (which was everyone) Its a mixture of video clips and pictures, with music featuring the wedding, our swim with the dolphins which was absolutely hilarious and other pictures. I need your opinion would you like to see this? If so I will try to post it. I like sharing positive things, especially because some of my posts are not to positive, so i need your input! have a good night everyone!!

We went to Cuba and go married by ourselves with no one there and it was not what I had envisioned, we then had a reception 5 months later and it went horribly wrong so if we renew our vows we will do it the right way in front of family. That is my biggest regret.

My parents couldn't get there queen size box spring upstairs into there bedroom and it was a really expensive one and that's just the beginning of it.
Thanks again everyone for keeping me in your prayers, on Sunday night they were heard. It was probably the worst night if my life, I was about to go to sleep and all of a sudden it just hit me I had the worst anxiety attack I have ever had in my life to date, and considering I have them on a daily basis, this one was by far the worst. I felt I was losing control of my mind and my body and I was losing the battle, I didn't think I was going to come out of it, I was about ready to call an ambulance I'm sure glad that night has passed.
Anyways I can still receive mail at my old place because we have not sold as of yet. I think that I have gotten my address out to those who are kind enough to send me some images (i love you guys) but with all of the chaos I'm not sure who has my new address and who doesn't so leave a comment if i have not given you my new address and you want it and I will be sure to email it to you, and for those that I have given it too could you please email it to me just to ensure that I have given the proper one! Sorry of all of this confusion I just want to make sure your address book is correct! I will be up and running soon with more creations and visiting your blogs and seeing all of the lovelies that you have made soon! Thanks for being such great friends and for sticking around. Hugs to everyone!

Card 1- This is my entry for the Allsorts Challenge Blog Week 39. The challenge was a recipe challenge and that we had to use 3 of something, two of something and one of something. I used
2- Different decorative papers
1- Birthday Embellishment
My Grandmas birthday is coming up March 12 so made this card with her birthday in mind. The butterflies have come from the website I have went to for all of my other decoupage projects http://thelilacgardendecoupagesite.co.uk I love this site! My paper and letters were stuff that i had in my stash and the Birthday Embellishment came from some surprise goodies that were sent to me by BlackDragon http://lynsblogger.blogspot.com/
I had won a free digi image in a blog hop that she was involved in and she was kind enough to send me her projects that she used the images on which was a box and a card, and when I received it the box was filled with wonderful goodies, thank you so much!
Card 2- Tuesday Morning Sketches
Like the title of the blog this was a sketch challenge I felt like starting my Easter cards so I created one, for the challenge, The sketch was a little tricky but soon as I saw it it reminded me of an egg in the center, then I saw this cute 3d decoupage bunny over on photo bucket, I will give proper credit when I find the place to give it to. My papers are a mixture of just stuff I had and the cute butterflies that are at the top are from the dollar store.
I cant believe that I made so many cards today, despite all of the chaos, I couldn't leave the house because I wasn't up to it but I had to keep my mind busy so I made cards, I made three more but they are going to people who might read this blog, so check your mailboxes maybe its you!

Entry for Tuesday Morning Sketches #32
Just wanted to post the cards at the very top so the entry's can be seen by the judges as soon as they link to my post.
I'm just mad that you can't tell it is 3D because I worked really hard cutting all of the little pieces out, so just imagine, you are seeing it in person because it is way better.

They are a very friendly bunch and this challenge was super fun, so what are you waiting for finish reading my post and go take a look for yourself!
Anyways back on topic, the challenge was to use the colours red, silver and black with a Valentines Day theme, I love Precious Moments and thought that this would be perfect for the challenge. I am trying to get better by using more embellishments and going out of my comfort zone but this is something that I still have to work on.
(If you choose to continue reading this entry for other then the challenge you may, but I wouldn't want to bore you, it's just updates on how I'm feeling and stuff for those that are interested. For those here to see my entry that's it for card related stuff in this post. I feel that I should keep the two topics separate for those who choose not to know what is going on with me personally and just want to see my card, eitherway I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and visit. Your comment's mean the world to me!)
-------UPDATES IN MY LIFE-----------
Just under two weeks until we get the keys for the townhouse, and just over two weeks till we have the moving truck, we still haven't sold our place yet, but it will probably look better and sell quicker if nothing is in it. With it being a trailer, the emptier it is the better, that way it looks bigger and people can use their imaginations, I'm imagining its a lot different then selling a house. Hopefully it sells before then but who knows. The real estate agent said that she thinks it is going to sell soon but until someone puts in an offer its any ones guess. Enough with that, boring....
Still feeling crappy, I went to the doctors and he upped my Seroquel by 25mg which is hardly nothing, He still doesn't have me on an anti-depressant which makes me feel like I am missing something. It's making it hard to function. I want to be going out and living a normal life, not missing everything because I can't leave the house, I feel like I am in this horrible rut and I'm spinning around in circles

This is my entry for the challenge over at http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/. The challenge was to create something that was delightfully delicious.
I got this freebie Digi from http://digital-doodling.blogspot.com/ She is so cute and I thought with the cupcake this would be a perfect image for the challenge. The patterned paper is one that came with a pad of papers from Michael`s. 180 sheet`s for $20 CAD. I`m pretty sure I got a good deal. Colored her with regular markers, pencil crayons and gel pens and the other paper and embellishments and stuff is all from the Dollarama, The thumb is mine lol.
This is the first card I have made in a little bit but after I move the ball is going to get rolling a little under three weeks and I will be able to create, socialize and visit more on all of your wonderful and inspiring blogs! I do miss having the time, and I really do get excited to see that someone has posted something new and I have a feeling that I am not the only one like this. Ahh the life of a blogger! Ok, yeah now I'm rambling. It`s been kinda quiet on my blog so come by enjoy what I have to show you and prepare for more excitement in the next couple of weeks!

So back in December I won a Challenge at
http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.com/ I was a featured stamper for January 5, 2010 and this was my creation;
This is my workspace in all of its glory until we move. I have my bed and a little TV tray. This is the only room we are using because we live in a trailer and have the living room basically empty to make it look bigger, so everything is done from the bed. It is terrible, but a couple of more weeks.
The last image i will leave you with today is our Niece watching the big KLM Asia come into Toronto Pearson, we took her to see the planes as she has never been before and the funniest thing was, not longer after we got there they stopped landing on the runway that we watch them on and they were landing on a runway they never use! Trust me we have been down there to plane watch enough times to find this very odd, so we didn't get to see a whole lot of planes that day but i love this picture. There is only one plane that comes bigger then this and that's the A380 but it wasn't landing that day so the 777 will have to do. I am so glad i caught this picture because it's moving pretty fast I took a double one, so it took two pictures consecutively and you should see how much it moved in that one second, if my timing would have been off another second I wouldn't have got this shot! Well if you are still reading this then you really must still love me, hopefully I will post again tomorrow!

I am curious to know something, How do you do a random act of kindness and keep it a surprise if you don't have the persons address? This boggles me and please let me know! I received my first blog candy win in the mail on Monday from Lisa and I was so happy, I have never ever received a package in the mail that required a signature before in my life it was the coolest thing, I almost could have cried, it was pretty emotional, and all the goodies were beautiful especially the handmade items which I hope to take a picture of and post with her permission of course. I would have already posted pics of this and of my journalling but my printer is beside my bed ( I put the memory card in there to upload the pictures) and near the ground underneath this cabinet thing and i get dizzy when i bend down like that (stupid med side effects) so I have to wait for my hubby to do it. In one month we are moving into a townhouse with my parents, which I am really excited for. See my trailer is up for sale right now and it is small so my only workspace is my bed because most of the furniture is in the shed to make the living space look bigger. all of my craft stuff is underneath the bed, which hubby has to get as well for me. It is supper annoying! When we move into my parents , my mom and I are going to have our own craft room, see they are moving into this new house the same time we are so my mom is just as excited as I am!
I would really like it if I could have some feedback on my blog, things I could change, and stuff like that. I am honored i have so many followers and i have met some wonderful people but I want you to come back frequently and visit so if there is anything that i can do, just let me know, you live and learn right?
Have a good night/ morning wherever in the world you might be, I sure wish i was someplace sunny, like where my faithful follower and friend
Tertia is! Winter in Canada stinks, it hasn't been bad this year really but I hate the cold, and snow and you would think after 26 years I'd be used to it! If I had the money I would be on a plane somewhere with no snow, wearing sandals and summer dresses, instead of winter coats and snow boots. Well all I can do is go to sleep and dream about it, It's warm under my blankets, so If I shut my eyes I can go to that warmer place...ahhh..zzzzz...nite nite
