I Heart days with friends creating....

There is nothing like spending the day in your studio with a friend creating away.  For 2013, Kelli and I decided to make time for some studio time with friends.  February was our 1st month and we spent the whole day making Valentine canvases.

This is Kelli's heart Canvas

Here is my heart canvases

These little ones came from being inspired by Becky Shander's Blog.   She used chocolate candy wrapper to make the little hearts.  Kelli brought over some chocolate kisses and I used the wrapper and Kisses tag to re-create ones I saw on Becky's blog.

Then Kelli wanted to make her 1st She Art girl and let me tell you she turned out adorable.  Don't you think?

Then before the day was over Kelli showed me how to use my new Gelli plate that she gave me for my Birthday.  OMG.... Now I know what all the noise around this new tool is about.  So cool, so easy and fun, fun, fun!!!!!  Thanks again Kelli for thinking of the perfect gift for me!!!!!

What warms your HEART this Valentines Day?

Happy Valentine's Day bloggy friends!

OLW January Update here....

Wow, where did January go? 
Amazing it's a 31 day month and it still flew by. 
 Before we get into February, wanted to give you an update on January.
Finished up my project for January, which was to write 12 intentions.  I decided against keeping a note book for my OLW as I wanted it to be something I can carry around easily as a reminder.  I stumbled across Heidi Swapp's memory folder YouTube video and knew this would be the perfect way to store my OLW assignments for the year.  For my intention cards, I went ahead and prepared them digitally using Storybook Creator from Creative Memories.  I loved how they turned out and was able to print and add to my OLW memory folder.

Here is a sneak peek into my OLW Memory Folder.
This is my cover of the Memory Folder.
I added inserts for each month. 
 Here is the insert for January holding my 12 intentions.

Included in January Tab, is a print out of my word's dictionary and Thesaurus meaning.

Now on to February....

Well I am going to CHOOSE to make the best of this short month. 
Want to know how?  
With a lot of ATTITUDE
My February Intention is ATTITUDE!  That's right friends I am going to have a awesome month because I am going to CHOOSE too!  What about you?
