I'm such a bad blogger ... I really should commit myself to blogging at least once a week. I have waaaaayyyyy to much to say today, so brace yourselves!!
Before I show you what I have been doing these last few weeks, I wanted to ask you all something. Lately I have been getting Chinese/Japanese (???) comments on my blog posts. They come into my mail box showing no name, just question marks. When I click on them, a blog does open, but it's a blog with no entries ... do any of you know what that's about??
Kreatorville April Kit reveal
Okay, on to business ... The Kreatorville April Kit has been revealed, and it's absolutely gorgeous! This kit will lead you eather way ... fun, romantic, free style ... all is possible with this one. Click here to see the kit in all its glory. Click here to see the Aptly Titled embellies that go with the kit (I totally have a crush on that bunny!!!).
Kreatorville March Kit LO's
While the April Kit already has been revealed, I still have some March kit projects to show you ... told you I'm a bad blogger :-(((
All of the above LO's, as well as my first vintage LO, remember, the one showing my grandparents' wedding day, have been made exclusively with the Kreatorville March kit products. So that's a total of five LO's, and yes, believe it or not, I still have materials left!!
I should mention that my "Ice Skating Fun" LO was based on one of Leeann's designs, which you can see here. Thank you Leeann for the inspiration, though of course I wasn't able to capture your fun free style which I so admire. I'll get there someday though, I have faith LOL. Btw, Leeann is our April guest designer over at Kreatoroville Krafts ... couldn't be happier about that! Please go and take a look at all the gorgeous projects she made *sigh*...
A Year in the Life of an Art Journal
I also made my second art journal page for AYITLOAAJ (gosh that name!!!!), for which we had to use a masking technique and work around the word "hope". Here's my take on it:
I'm enjoying these art journal pages even more than I had imagined. I wish I had more time to work on them ... BUT, as soon as I saw the first sun creeping through, my yearly urge to clean house reappeared ... so, I've been cleaning like crazy, cleaning out cupboards, washing the ceilings, all in my very own desorganized way, which means I now have two rooms which are totally gorgeous up to the very last detail, and a total mess in the rooms I haven't been working in at all LOL. But, I'll get there, again, I have faith LOL. And as for my ironing, I'm sure you'll be surprised to hear I'm all caught up (hear that Marit haha) ... yeah me!!! LOL. Although that doesn't mean much, as of course the washing machine and dryer are full and a next bunch of laundry is patiently waiting, but ... I'm not stressing at all ... well, maybe just a little bit hehe. Still, it's rewarding. The house will remain a mess for the weekend, because the weather is wonderful today, and I'm going to tackle the remains of my garden ... not a pretty sight at the moment ... planning to change that over the weekend though. So I guess my love for art journal pages will have to wait.
It has been long time since I've received an award, and this one especially made me smile. The quote that goes with this award reads: "For bloggers who inspire others with their positivity and creativity". Now wouldn't that make you smile as well?
The first ones I would think about when seeing this quote would be my sweet friends Jenneke and Loes, but since they are the lovely ladies who gave me this award (thank you!!!!), I on my end am going to give this award to these fine ladies:
Of course if I could I really would make this a much longer list. There are so many wonderful ladies who are always able to put a smile on my face, or to whom I turn to when I'm in need of some inspiration, but I have to admit these have been on the top of my list for quite some time now. I'm sure most of you know them all, but if you don't, please take the time to visit their blogs (Jenneke's and Loes's as well!!) They all make such wonderful things, each in their own unique style. It will be worth your time, I promise!
I'm sure there was something else I wanted to tell you, but I can't think of it right now ... I'll save it for another post, hopefully a little sooner this time!!
Love xxx Peggy
