Beautiful day today!
49 degrees right now, blue skies, fluffy white clouds...ahhh!
I had to set my alarm so I'd be up this afternoon for Caroline, who just left a little bit ago. During the night I played a little more with my art journal...got out rubber stamps and metallic ink pads this time.
I figured the first page should be a reminder every time I open it to just..."play"!! I added a variety of small plant stamps peeking around the edges of the page. Caroline loved it. It's got shimmer when you see it in person.
Anyways, that might be it for page one. I think I am happy with this as it is now. Next I will have to decide if I want to do a two page spread or stick with one page at a time. :)
The Ink Drop for November arrived already today!!
Reds and greens...tada!!
The biggest thing is that it's Dagan's birthday today!!
My plan had been for Dagan and Leah to help me bring in the boxes of pictures from the garage last week so that I could find some baby pictures of Dagan and maybe figure out how to use my new printer's scanner...but...best laid plans--LOL! So, I promise that sometime in the future (if I can learn how to use a scanner--my old printer's scanner never worked because I bought an "as is" floor model) that I will start posting some of my old photos in my blog.
Meanwhile...my Dagan is 37!
Blows me away.
I sent both these videos to Dagan today--LOL! The original Beatles version (even if it has crazy looking paper Beatles in it) and this one where Sir Paul can still rock it out! ;)
For some of you newer followers--Dagan was born with a severe series of heart defects and wasn't expected to live. To get a glimpse into those early days you can read Soft Breaths from my stories blog. (This story has been published three times.)
I'm so proud of Dagan as a human being. He's got a good soul and I'm honored to be his mom. Even love his sweetheart, too. What more could anyone ask for in a son?
Happy Birthday, Dagan!!
The writing prompt for the day:
If you knew that whatever you ate next would be your last meal, what would you want it to be?
Eaten very, very, very slowly.
I wish you a day filled with giggles!! :):)
