Niece's and Airplanes

Hi, sorry i haven't been posting, just alot going on right now and getting up the energy is another thing, I am going to try better to maintain the friendships that i have made with all of you but just bear with me till I get moved and then things will be much better.

So back in December I won a Challenge at I was a featured stamper for January 5, 2010 and this was my creation;

The image was a digi that I purchased with my winnings from Inktegrity, same with the happy mail circle thing (Where is my vocabulary?) The brads are from Michael's. The image is colored with good ole' Crayola markers, cause I can't afford to buy the fancy ones that I drool over when i see them on all of your blogs, but there fine for now.

My Husband's niece came over for the night so I decided to keep her busy, we would make cards, she loves doing many things at once, so I was happy that she was actually really focused on making this card. I showed her the sketch which was the same that i had to make for the Featured Stamper spot, and I helped when she asked for it but other then that she did it all on her own! Below is the two of us holding the cards that we made, didn't she do awesome! And shes only 9! (Please excuse the way I look in these pictures, I look like a slob, but i can polish up if need be!)

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!

Unsatisfied production...

So I start this post untitled, I don't know where I am going with it yet, I just thought I would start typing and see where it takes me. Lately I have been working more on my art journal which I intend to post pictures of really soon, my card making is coming up unsatisfactory, I have a card ready to be posted for a challenge, I think I just don't know if I am satisfied with it yet.

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

Mojo monday Week 121

Whew this month is going by fast. I have a doctor's appointment in an hour so I am hoping he is going to work miracles and give me the right prescription this time. I really appreciate the support you have been giving me, and the stories you have shared on my comments to let me know and to reassure me that I am not alone with this. I wish that Anxiety and Depression disorders didn't exist but they do and all I can do is learn from my struggles and experiences and come out of this a stronger person. When I am better I plan to make a difference in some way, I want to raise the awareness of mental health and hopefully create or find a way to create more support that works better then the resources that are provided now. We have the Canadian Mental Health Association but I find they are a joke, I have nothing but bad experiences with them, others may have found it helpful but as for me i think it has caused more problems each time making me feel more helpless because of all places you would think that would be the one place that would help right? Not a chance. if I want good help I have to play for it. Ontario has free health care but having a good doctor for mental health costs money. I guess I cant complain because most places don't have the advantage of free health care but I can not afford the extra money it would cost to get the proper help I need.

Anyways i made this card a couple of days ago for the Mojo Monday challenge, I just haven't had the energy to post it Its for Mojo Monday Week 121. I really love their challenges and i tend to do them more frequently then others. I find sometimes i am limited to challenges because I am limited in supplies. I found this free 3d decoupage bear and flower from
beautiful stuff over on that site!

Whew here we go...2 Challenges, two cards (Cute card Thursday 94 and Charisma Cardz Week 1)

I have not been blogging for the past few days, my depression has been really kicking me in the butt, I started out with just anxiety and then a couple of months ago my doctor diagnosed me with clinical depression. The anxiety is still the majority of the problem but sometimes the depression rears its ugly head.

I finally gathered the strength and energy to make a couple of cards for a couple of challenges the first is over at Charisma Cards Week 1 and it was a color challenge to use the colors pink brown cream and toffee. Hope this is ok.

The second challenge was over at Cute Card Thursday Challenge #94 and the challenge theme was all new so I made a baby card
Both of the images came from a french coloring book site which I love! I really need to get out of the house, it's been pretty much two months since i have been able to actually go any where, i have the odd day where i am somewhat OK but not good enough to go shopping and I need stuff! Also I am anxious for the post man to come everyday because I am waiting on two packages (Blog candy I won) one from the UK and the other from the USA. I guess they are taking a long time because of Christmas, hopefully tomorrow? I need some new stash soon!
I was also a featured stamper this week over at Tuesday Morning Sketches but I will fill you in more with that tomorrow hopefully. Good night everyone (depending on where you live!)
