Gone To Long

Hi friends
sorry that I haven't been a good blogging buddy, I have been so busy with school and interning it's been crazy. The good thing is that I got the on call position with the place that I'm interning at, the bad thing is that my unemployment is running out and the republicans blocked the extension so that means on Nov 30, if they don't pass another extension, 2.2 million people will lose their benefits (including me) ... eek ....

I have been so stressed that I haven't been sleeping well, not to mention that I have been working 12, 14 and 16 hour shift for my orentation ... I'm so tired ... but very thankful that i'm working even though it's only on call .... I feel like i'm going to be blessed any minute so I can keep my house. Well it's Friday and I'm getting ready to leave for another 12 hour shift .... thanks for stopping by and I'll post something soon!

A Geisha Kinda Day

Happy Wednesday all and thanks for stopping buy! I've been trying to get back into my crafty self lately and it seems to be working. I've been in my craft room creating all kinds of things, some creations are so cute and then some don't turn out the way I planned, it's like I couldn't relay my thoughts from my head to actually creating something. Does that every happen to anyone else??

My friends Gma is doing better, she was moved from ICU to a room with other patients which is a good sign, this means that she is responding to therapy and speech therapy... Thanks to all who prayed for her.

On to my little creation! This is my little Geisha Anya, I just love her. I used my copics on her and some of  that glossy stuffs to help her shine!

I stamped to images of her, one to color and the other was to cut out the flower in her hair to give her that 3D image. I used my grey copics and then got my white gel pin and made a few wisps to give her that aged look. Well at least that's what I was trying to do. It's kind of hard to see, but I used some glitter gel on the designer paper to help that pop out .... Well I'm off for now, Stefani and I are going to make some cookies for my Dad .... Thanks again for stopping by and I hope ya'll have a great day!

An Apple A Day

Hi all, thanks for stopping by. Today was a funky kind of day, you see it's been 5 years today that my Nana passed, so i was kind of in a funny mood. I know to some it may be silly that I still morn her death, but I would give anything to have her here with me. She was a strong yet caring (in her own way) person. I remember when I would drive to go and see her, she was always in her room watching TV. I knew it would be a good day when she opened this "One" special drawer! Man that drawer always had good stuffs in it, candy, cards, note pads, little bottles of soda etc ... as old as I am, I would still get excited when she would bend down to open that drawer. Man I miss that!

Then today, a friend called me and told me that his grandmother had a stroke and isn't doing to well, although she is responding to speech therapy. I wanted to cry when he was telling me this, but i held it together and just listened to him. Ok, enough of the sad sappy stuffs, I made the little card today, I thinks it's so cute!

This is my little Anya Teacher stamp, I used several different colors on her, I used my copics and some designer paper I got from one of my fav scrapbook stores .... I also used some red smoochs to color the apple, kind of gives it the glossy look. Well I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks again for stopping by!

Wow, November Already!

Wow, I can't believe that it's already November, where has the time gone? This means I have been out of a job for almost 2 years ... what the heck, I never thought I would be out of a job for TWO years... but I know that God has something in store for me, it's just not the right time yet, but I hope he beings me something fast, time and money is running out! eek! Well enough about that, how bout the little card below? isn't she cute, I don't think she's really snow white, but she looks like her. I don't recall Snow White kissing a frog, I think it was the newest Disney Princess ....

I colored her with my Prima color pencils and used some gamsol to blend it in, I was looking for my Disney paper, but couldn't find it, that means I need to clean out my scrapbook room, I know I have tons of Disney paper ...

Well short post today, I have to get ready to go and intern, thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy my little card!
