"G" Journal Challenge
So, the next letter in my journal challenge was G and the task was to make a page that had an insert (also called a "tip in") with windows. This is my page... Great Words Sizzle". Hope you enjoy it!
The first is the actual journal page, the middle is the tip in placed over the right side journal page and the last is the tip in placed over the left side journal page. I used Stampin'Up ink pads, yellow glitter glue and sparkle embossing powder (over the seahorse)
I am at work all day tomorrow and Sunday is also busy so let me go ahead and do my Monthly Accountability post now.
Same MONTHLY GOALS: make a booklet or journal. 3 workouts/wk. ATC Challenge. Mission Inspiration journal challenge. Birthday card group. Blog once weekly. Start on one of the windows I reclaimed and turn it into something artistic. TieDye some scrubs.
The Results are in.... 3 outta 5 done
I made several small journals and took them as demos to Art Night.
I DID NOT work out at least 3 times every week bc of work schedule and some health issues.
I DID complete April's ATC Challenge.
I DID complete April's Mission Inspiration Challenge (today, LOL)
I DID make birthday cards for those that were due.
I DID NOT blog all 4 weeks of April (this will be my 3rd post this month, not 4th...sigh)
What ELSE did April include? Besides working 4 days a week instead of 3? I got to see an Opera (was a bucket list item)...Faust. WONDERFUL!! Loved It!! Playing in my planner &a…
Managed to get the work schedule posted for May (finally) and guess what? There are now 10 people on it!! So hopefully no more working 4 or 5 days a week. Yes, while the pay may be nicer than a 3 day week it takes its toll on the body & the spirit when I work too much. No art time makes me sad. No beach time, no Bud time... all of these snowball into a cranky chaotic mess! Not to mention I had to cram Monday & Tuesday workouts into one (done this morning) and STILL have to complete the workout for today. UGH.
I have started on the 1st of my Mixed media Windows. It is cleaned up, sanded here and there (want to leave it distressed and aged looking) and the glass has been caulked back in. Keep in mind these windows are the original ones to our house and as such they are older than I am.
...my weeks must be about 21-22 days long because my GOAL is to post weekly but my REALITY is every 3 weeks. ARGH. As a rationalization, however, I will point out that is is the BUSIEST time of the year and we are still under-staffed. I have been making cards and gifts and things for the holidays as well, and it is NEVER a good idea to type on a brand new laptop when you are playing with acrylic paints. NEVER!! Add to all of that an unexpected death in the family (11/18) and the resulting funeral (back home) you can see where my time has gone. On the win side of the equation I have written and addressed all my holiday greetings and gifts. They will go postal Saturday (my next day off). I did NOT do my November 1st accountability for the month of October... allow me to combine those 2 months into one since I work tomorrow (the last day of November) ::
Make a booklet or journal? Actually, I DID! It's a gift :-)
ATC Challenge... on hold for the Holidays!!
Mission Inspiration jou…
