Crazy creative process

So I thought I would start sharing some of my layouts instead of just talk about scrapping all the time! At scrapgal we had a challenge to use a feather on a layout! So heres what I came up with! As soon as I read this challenge I thought of forrest gump and the feather in that movie which led me to the quote! The "vision" of this page just popped into my head and I had to jump out of bed to sketch it before I forgot!! These are pictures of my past serious relationships....yes, there is only 3 sheesh!! Anyways, I was just looking at these reminising about what kind of person I was in each of these relationships and how they affected who i am today. I was going to include a picture of my present day single self but couldnt make it fit. LOL...I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse of my crazy creative process! Hopefully I will post more of these soon!

So much and so little

Do you ever feel like you have a million things going on but nothing significant to "report"...LOL Thats me...all the time! Work is getting more stressful...we fired the other receptionist so its just me now. Doing her work and my work is overwhelming to say the least. And this past weekend I was on call for the phones. It wasnt as bad as I suspected but having the phone ring every hour all night long does not make for a restful night!

Scrapping did get done this weekend! Coming off a dry spell and the pages are feeling a little forced but Im trying at least...LOL Of course there is one sitting on my table that I have worked on for FOUR days now...totally started over twice...argh! Ive decided that I am never again going to pack EVERYTHING i own for a takes too long to unpack!

Money stuff is getting a little better. I have a few more hours at work and some opportunities for bonus money, plus Im gonna hit my boss up for a raise so we'll see what happens.

Somewhere in my head is rattling a long blog entry about the holidays but Im not ready to devote my energy to it yet. Is that weird? The act of writing takes emotional energy... For now, the short version is Im dreading them!
