In Montreal has been raining since yesterday and I L O V E D IT!!! I think is great for the plants and the grass. Plus, we can not complain about the great summer we are having. well… don’t be mad at me for saying that, I am not jinxing it!!! Anyway… we don’t have that much left of this summer anyway… buahhhhhhh.
And why am I talking about the rain? well, rain is usually associated with difficult times and I like to think that I am at the end of one of those… I finally feel that I am starting to catch my breath and to have a clearer picture of where I want to go and how to get there. The journey is not even close to be over and I know there is still a lot of work ahead to be done, but I am taking one day at a time and surrounded by great friends so I know I am OK.
There are more readers in the blog… THANK YOU!!!! and of course I am sticking to my promise of doing a DIGITAL giveaway each week: I hope you like the RAIN related DIGI Stamp of today’s freebie (just click on it and “grab it” with my blessings). What do you think about the quote I chose for it? The image you see of this little girl belongs to the “WATER Rain Paper Collection” of Kiki Art Winter 2010 but it is also part of a new product I have designed for new Kiki Art goodies to be revealed soon… it will all match up!!!
Did you know that all the images of people I draw / design are based on real people? this girl holding the umbrella is my little niece ANITA… If you keep following my blog and Kiki Art’s blog you will find her in many of the layouts I create. I love my nieces and nephews!!! When they were little I was able to spoil them more, now they are all grown up and I only get to read their Facebook from far away, I hope they know I love them and we will get to see each other soon.
This weekend there was a lot of creating going on around my home. I am starting to learn how to get organized to do layouts, cards and projects even though I also have to run a business and a home ( kids + puppy dog) in three languages… while trying to keep a normal life in the middle of all that. I have asked my more experienced professional designer friends how they do it… and most of them replied the key is to “JUST MAKE THE TIME FOR IT!!!”. What do you think? What is your secret to schedule moments to play with your papers and paints?… I would love to know how you find the time to sit down and create your projects !!!
I now leave you with a little Sneak peek of one of the Layouts I created with the Kiki Art Paper line offered in the Scrapbook Magazine: SUNNY BAY. Guess who is in the picture?
