I'm back!!

I'm generally a really reserved/quiet person where I don't share all details of my life on my blog OR facebook.. normally I share my crafting fun, some of the children's accomplishments, or happy news in my life... I try to be upbeat and look for the silver linings, and I try to leave the sad/venting stuff off of the internet.

What family has it perfect? We're all struggling in some ways I'm sure. Why do I keep quiet so much about what's going on in my day to day if I'm having a rough go of it? I've always been an introvert. If things get difficult, I clam up and keep moving on... but I quickly lose interest in activities I normally enjoy. Like blogging. Playing games and catching up with friends on Facebook. Instagramming. CRAFTING. Taking photos.

You could probably relate me to an ostrich with its head in the sand. lullz
I'm tired of this yo-yo effect it has on me and my life.. and in 2014 I'm going to try and change how I handle things. Maybe I DO need to speak out more. Craft through it.
 I enjoy creating with company products more than I know how to put it into words. I feel like that's my purpose.. as silly as it may sound. :)

Today, I colored!!
I went on Some Odd Girl, purchased 3 new digi's, and colored one up.
I haven't colored in over six months... and it's very much like riding a bicycle. :)
I see area's where I'm still a little rusty.. but I'm SUPER overjoyed to have crafted again.


This little cutie reminds me so much of my darling Samantha right now. She's in 3rd grade and reading up to 1.5 hours a day right now. Her favorite books are anything to do with One Direction OR Diary of a Wimpy kid. 
I created this little door hanger for Samantha to place on her door when she's reading in her room. She saw it and immediately placed a paper and pencil inside the box so we could leave her messages while she's busy. :)

I added glossy accents to the glasses to make them look a bit shiny.
As of today, Some Odd Girl is moving their community over to Facebook.
Less spam and more user friendly than the ning site... so come join the group!!

Soon I will share why I was away for pretty much Dec/Jan...
