I got my craft on this weekend!

I have not had many opportunities to craft in the past couple of months and it was so great this weekend to have that opportunity! A few months ago I joined a swap with some amazing artists and I am very late getting mine done. But I did!

The swap is with Christine Penaflor, Jenny Doh, Kim Caldwell, Katie Watson and Cheryl Waters. The task was to create a heart with one letter from the word CREATE. So Christine die cut hearts and letters for all of us and we each chose our color palette and then let the creating begin! The theme was Vintage Shabby Chic.

I am very happy with the way mine came out. I might still add a few more vintage pieces to them but here are some sneak peeks of what I came up with. Will post the finished projects when we get them all swapped.

this one is for Kim

Lost my blog groove

So I'm ready to start back on my blog. I miss it so much!!

So how is "it"?

"it"
is a divorce in the works. The filing is done, my whole life is packed in boxes in storage or scattered all over my little brother's house. (he has 3 bedrooms, I get 2) :)

"it"
is for all the right reasons. I know now that I am going to be ok and that Jean-Claude and I will be better people for having been married to each other and I will always wish him happiness and peace.

"it"
is still a long road ahead. I have to figure out where to live (can't take 2 of my lil' brother's rooms forever) I have to figure out how to pay myself, and I have to come to terms with the fact that in order to keep Scrapbook Royalty alive, I have to earn a living through it. This is the yuckiest "it" of all!

So, "it" is moving forward at it's own pace and I am at peace to live in the moment and I try to remember to live each day to it's fullest.

I am a happy people especially drinking my sugar free rockstar!

my new motto:

This is not about then, this is just about now.
