twitter is too much fun!!!

OK, I am going to totally dump myspace in place of twitter. I never go on myspace anymore anyway!

So, I follow "craft" on twitter and I am obsessed! First, the craftzine blog is wonderful!!! Here is the link:

CRAFTZINE... u da bomb!!!

Now... through their blog I have found projects, o wonderful projects! I will never get sleep again! I may never get time to do any of these projects without some serious kiddie back-up, but it's nice to imagine! My house may be totally transformed!

Here are my fav projects at a glance, thought I'd share with everyone!

What a great day!!!

I had a me day today. My good neighbor & friend invited me over to play Rock Band 2! We had fun making my funky rocker chic with pink eyebrows, tattoos, and piercings. Wish I had a screenshot of that, fun stuff. I played on easy and only failed twice (OK I'm not that good). I play bass and I didn't get it at first, but it got easier. I really want to buy that now! So much fun! We ate some lunch and let our babies play together, so cute! Hailey & Bella BFF's!

When I got home I remembered I wanted to do an etsy lab that had started at 1:30(my time) and it was almost 2:30, ugh. So I was late, story of my life! I popped into the room and low & behold... IT WAS STILL GOING ON! If you frequent the etsy labs it usually lasts 30 minutes so I was so happy to catch the end of it all. Chantelle, aka MoneyBeGreen, was very patient, informative, and down to earth! I have a new favorite blog! Woo hoo! And a book I need to go get tomorrow... Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, cause I wanna have a millionaire mind :) Visit her blog if you missed it, good stuff! I'm not going to tell you what you should read, cause I think it's all great!

Then there was the blogosphere lab with Liz Kinnmark and Kegan Fisher, inventors of DesignGlut... check out their Egg Pants. That was very inspiring. The lab was basically about getting your work out to bloggers to be seen, and blogging yourself! So, I guess that lab worked ;) This is the most I've blogged yet! I've also joined twitter... warning to all my myspace friends, I'm bailing in a few days. I'm twitterpated.

So now that I've been inspired what am I doing? Glad you asked! I'm working on some new covers. I want to be a bit more creative in my work. As it is, everything I do is quite simple, which is very me. I needed to figure out a way to transfer some personality to my journals and still keep it simple. I like clean lines and so far that isn't what my journals convey. So, I am embossing. It makes a great little addition to a simple cover, just enough "art glitter" to make it special. So work I must! I am loving the new direction.

Loving the teas...

About a week ago I was lucky enough to be in a chat room on Etsy when there was someone looking for tea reviewers. I love this blog... I am having so much fun reading everyone's reviews, and I even wrote a review myself! It is so much fun being part of such a great community!!!

New process...

I have been trying to figure out how to make my journals different than everyone else's. This is what I can up with, to use solid colors and emboss a stamp on the front. So far it looks good. I have my light box up and am going to start taking some more shots of my books.

I've also finished my first weekly planner, with a years worth of pages. I am very proud of myself... finally getting some of these things finished up. Now all I have to do is get things on my etsy site so I can sell them!!!
