Life is busy. With two special needs children, I am running around to appointments every day. Not to mention, that I teach English as an Additional Language (ESL) at a local college. I am sure that you can relate. We all have very busy lives these days.
I caught a live on Facebook of Dawn, from Dawn G Design's. Watching her has inspired me to use the stamps and digital images by Paper Nest Dolls, created by Christine Young. The stamps are just adorable. I believe that she has created them in the image of her children, which is very touching. Dawn is so funny on her lives. It is very refreshing to find a group that is so honest and real.
So, I have gotten out all my markers, pencils and watercolors and have created several cards this weekend. I have lots more ideas in my head and seem to have too little time to create. Working with color is my first love; markers, watercolors, inks, or pencils - I am always amazed at how color brings an image to life.
I think that there is a life lesson in there somewhere. Maybe color brings us to life too.
We recently went to Tybee Island, Georgia, and there is color everywhere. Beautiful turquoise, peach, pink, greens, and yellows - well you get the point. After our trip, I started back with making cards. It has just all come together with a flood of creativity, which I want to share with you.
I reset up my camera to film videos, took a chance and looked into an opportunity with a UK crafting business, and started this blog. I am just a person who loves to craft and want to share my journey with you and share yours too. I hope you decide to follow me and like my Face Book page at Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie.
