I feel like certain liberties are granted to me by virtue of being a Texan. Some of these liberties include, but are not limited to: using an excessively large truck as my commuter vehicle, having a Whataburger within a 5 minute drive in all directions of where I stand, and inventing contractions whenever it is in my best interest to do so. Change'll. I really do talk like that.
I don't actually own a truck. I have a Kia Forte Eco. I love my car, but it is SO MUCH FUN to drive a gigantic truck.
Anyway. A change really will do you good. I'm actively participating in my life. It is remarkably short, and change, both good and bad, is inevitable. You just have to choose how you're going to react to it, and try to make the best of the situation you're in. So that's what I'm doing. I'm choosing to live. I might not be the bloggiest blogger in the world while I pursue this. I'm going to need to get used to juggling my time, but I hope to be able to find a balance that works for me, which means that this might not be an entirely craft-related blog. In a crazy twist of fate, this blog might actually become about me. :-) But I'll temper it all with delicious crafty goodness, which brings me to my newest layout!
Photos don't ever really do layouts justice, do they? I feel like the colors are just poopy in this picture. The yellows are not as vibrant, the pinks are just a little bit blue, and that grey just looks washed out. I think I mentioned in my previous blog post about having lost some scrappy mojo, and this layout is kind of evidence to that, I think. It has potential. Patterned Papers are Crate, Echo Park, My Mind's Eye, and just a hint of Lily Bee. The cream tulle is Webster's Pages, the pink ribbon and green seam binding are from my big-bag-o-ribbon-I've-hoarded, the wood heart is Studio Calico. The journaling card and button are Crate. The die cut transparency, little printed banner piece, and letter stickers are Basic Grey. The pearls are an old bit from my stash, and the chipboard butterfly is a piece from a Studio Calico kit (Field Guide).
Journaling reads: This photo should be rated R because we are a couple of dirty birdies making such sexy "flirty faces" at the camera. After this pic was snapped, the camera died happy. My friends have this thing where we make hideous faces at each other and turn each other on. It's pretty appalling. :-) As you can see, John is the Brad Pitt of flirty faces. Celebrity flirt faces are pretty epic. Here's just a couple to get you started:
There is so much sexy happening in this blog post. I know you must be so turned on.
