Me,Myself and I

Hi! What a cold day it is today here in Aberdare. The snow has been falling all evening, making it a cold morning to wake up  too. I have an intolerance to the cold and this weather plays havoc with my joints. I can wear gloves and craft but its a nightmare to draw or write with gloves on. Enough of my grumbling your here to join me in the celebration of the good things in my life not the miserable things.


Today I would like to share with you My new Art Journal/Sketch book and a small book that I made to celebrate Me.

There is a challenge over at http://sarahhurleychallenges.blogspot.com/ to Celebrate the good things about oneself.
So this is what I would like to share with you.....................

My first page of my Art/sketch book.

On my first page I have used some left over pieces of paper from my stash and An Artist trading card from the stack I have made and used it to decorate my first page. I apologise for the picture being so light but this was the best picture I could take with my camera. Also the papers are very pale.

A doodle of a bird.

On This page I have attached an Atc that I made to represent self.  The title of the Atc is Me, Myself and I.
There is a sticker of an artist within the paint palette holding a paint brush. There are words around the edge, to represent my personality. e.g Feisty, Faithful, Energetic, Genuine girl, inquisitive, smart and mom. There is also a peel off of  a pair of boots  on the Atc. These were added as I like boots of various designs and used to wear different types of boots when I was able. Now they are just collecting dust at the bottom of my wadrobe. Many pairs have only ever been worn once.

The paper behind the Atc was stamped with various flourishes of mine and then I doodled a green bird behind this to match the green on the edging of the Atc.

I have also a small book to show you with a little more detail of Who I am. or should I say The things I like about myself.

The writing reads I am s Seeker of the truth.

The writing below the eyes reads VISAGE.
I am Observant.
I am sightful.

The writing reads I am creative.
I am a Poet.
I am an Artist.
I am Unique.
I am a Mother of two grown up sons.
 There are another two pages like the ones above that read
I am honest
I am trustworthy
I am a good friend.
I am loyal.
I am a Giver.
I am helpful.

This reads I love Japanese Art
and I love Japanese Culture.

This tag is inserted between the opening in the next page.

and the adjacent page reads I love Butterflies.

When I first started crafting Butterflies and Oriental stamps were the first stamps I ever bought and I made  many butterfly Artist trading cards.

And to add something interesting  to this post check out this site...... for a bit of fun
Here you will visit the enchanted forest where you power animal is waiting to approach you and ask to be part of your life.

Uncannily The animal that came to me was a Butterfly.
