The Only Way to Destress…

Summer vacation is supposed to be relaxing. Well this summer has been incredibly rough. The only thing I took a vacation from was my blog. I forgot about the Poememes challenge yesterday until right before I fell asleep.  OH BOY! Is anyone out there wondering what happened to the challenge? If so I apologize yet again. Life has a tendency to unfold no matter what our plans. It’s alright if you’re not being thrown a curve ball, LOL! Despite this summer’s trials and tribulations I have still managed to do some artwork. Ah the only way to distress! 😀 What do you think?

I will make a summer gallery of some of the items I’ve made this summer. I am currently working on my first digital scrapbook kit and it’s been a lot of fun. I had been considering making my own items in hopes of making my layouts more personal,but I never knew where t start. The scrapbook community pixelscrapper  knows how to cultivate newbie scrapbookers and designers. I must confess I have spent a lot of my digital time there this summer (apologizes to blog). I hope to create more of my own kits later, we’ll see what happens. But since I do some scrapetry it would be beneficial to make some of my own papers and elements for those pieces.

I am also venturing into taking a photo a day this month. I am not following any current specific challenge. My intent here is to just capture my August in photos. I am doing this through an android phone app. I’ll cover this app in another post!

  1. I am sorry that I have ducked out of this but disaster has struck and I am currently battling cancer and chemotherapy. I am trying to follow a daily art programme to keep myself motivated but my energies are very depleted.Thank you though for setting me in motion after a period of non creativity. Gillian
