~As Promised~

If you know me well, than you know I so dislike Walmart! But I needed a yoga mat and groceries and I was indeed too lazy to go to more than one place so bleh, I went to Walmart, sigh. It is like a black hole, you get lost in there, go in when it is light outside and come out HOURS later and it is dark. It is also a black hole for your money! (bigger sigh) But I got my yoga mat and groceries! I will be very thankful for the yoga mat because push ups and crunches on hardwood floor, so not fun!

Back to work tomorrow though, the office was closed today for the holiday. It was very nice to have a three day weekend. And a four day work week will be nice as well. I have not even peeped at my work blackberry so I hope I do not have all kinds of craziness to deal with when I get back.

And here as promised is what I have so far for the e-course Color As A Verb. I have completed the journal she shows you how to make. I thought about doing it differently but wanted to be genuine to the class so I did make it following her directions with one minor difference, I like to start my thread on the outside not inside.

Here are the signatures which are cut from Bristol Smooth paper, this will be the first time I have used this paper.

She makes the journal out of a composition notebook, so I recycled one that had writing exercises in it originally.

Pretty scrapbook paper to cover the insides.

Plain but pretty scrapbook paper for the back inside. :D

And she has you make a copic marker swatch book. I used the left over Bristol Papers where I made the signatures. I also used the leftover pretty scrapbook paper. I did not think I would get it done ever because I have 80 something markers. But it really went faster than I thought. And glad I did it, it is a great color reference.

TADA, and hopefully soon I will have some pretty stuff on the inside! :D

In the Sewing Room I got a Christmas Mug Rug quilted, and two tissue cozies made for two of my friends.

the bit at the top you see is what the binding will be

I definitely feel accomplished not only in the sewing room but in the art room too. Tomorrow, I will share how far I have gotten with the e-course I signed up for, Color as a Verb. And I exercised! So good start for the new year, just need to keep keeping on!!

My first attempt at using digital backgrounds to upload and such and be more creative here on the blog, not too bad but I know the font is not great :S Sorry about hurting your eyes! I cannot figure out how to make the letters filled and not outlined, yet!
