I LOVE TREES!
Here are a few of the details as well.
I was in a doodlely kind of mood....doodlely?
I am debating on painting the heart so it's filled in....what do you think?
The four pictures were taken at Pfeiffer State Park in Big Sur, and I have some snapshots from our last trip to Pfeiffer Beach I'll be working on this coming week.....stay tuned for those layouts soon. Playing with these photos this weekend has really made me yearn to be there! Let's cross our fingers and pray there is NO mudslides this winter (from the fire last summer) so we can visit when the weather gets warmer!
This layout was partly inspired by this painting I did last year:
Love, peace and trees...these are a few of my fav-o-rite things!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday my friend! You are young, beautiful, smart and have a fantastic soul! You always have the perfect words...always!
My birthday wish for you is SNOW! I hope it snows all day, but not enough that you can't make a trip (or two!) to Starbucks for a hot steaming cup of yummy peppermint mocha! : )
Have a great, great birthday Carrie!

Ahhh...this IS one of the reasons I love California! Yes..this picture was taken in the middle of January! We are actually having some what of a heat wave this winter. Well, not exactly heat wave, but it has been in the 70's and low 80's in the bay area for a week or two.
Mmmmmm......cupcake! I am cooking up a few projects for Valentine's day and beyond! There is just something freeing when you push around some paint with a paintbrush. It's always interesting to see the results, sometimes you keep them...sometimes you Gesso over them, and it always all good.
Yes..I have skipped a few days, and I haven't posted anything either. Well, here it goes!
One of my favorite drinks is Passion Tea with Lemonade, less sweet please. It's a sweet, tart, cold and lovely! I couldn't believe it does not have any artificial colorant! Yay! Maybe that's why I really like it. It is a red drink I can actually have! As many know I am allergic to FD&C and LAKE red dye. Since that stupid stuff is in just about everything, I seek out the thinks that "should" be on the reaction list but aren't. It makes me feel naughty.....or something like that...

Which brings me to my photo of the day......
I LOVE the smell of clothes that have been freshly washed and dried with Gain. It's such a fresh, clean and lovely smell. I've used it for quite a few years, and hope they never stop making it!

Christmas is over, it is officially a new year. It's the time of resolutions, or as I like to call them, the ok to lie to yourself. Maybe that's because I have never, ever kept any resolution I have ever made.....ever. I don't even feel bad about it. : )
I have taken down the Christmas tree, almost finished putting the living room furniture back in order. I haven't started to put away the misc. knick knacks of Santa, ornaments, and other Christmas decorations. I think I'm even going to put away my winter snowmen and penguins. I feel the need to put my home back in regular order. Whatever "regular" means. I do want to get out my Valentine's boxes and see what lurks there. I know I don't have much, and I see some projects coming together in my head!
As for this new blog I'm starting, I think I want to do a photo of the day, and know I want to post my projects whether it's scrapbooking, altered canvas', or other various crafty goodness. I'm learning, and we'll just see how this goes!
I bid you happiness, prosperity, and love in this new year of 2009! Oh...and this...just for fun!
