Anya...never more than a thought away

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that all of you have a good weekend....and yippee if you get a 3-day weekend for the holiday on Monday. We won't be doing anything, I might just work on Jodus' party stuff. His birthday isn't until 4 Oct. BUT....he has realized when his birthday is and each day has been doing a countdown...OMG he's gonna kill me before the day gets here. So I decided we might as well work on stuff for a small party...you know I'd like to do as much handmade as I can. We are going to make it Star Wars themed since he's totally into that right now. And he really wants to help (he's a creative little thing) so I'm trying hard to relinquish my need for it all to be perfect and let him help me out.
I didn't get a position for Paper Makeup DT team, I'm a bit sad and disappointed but it's okay....I'll just keep on keepin' on! Honestly, it just feels good to be able to craft again, to actually have the desire to craft really. Even once we got settled and I got my room organized I was still having problems finding the desire to go up there and make something but once I finally started it all came back to me and the desire was there again.


This is Miss Anya Dressy...I love The Greeting Farms images and this set is among my favorites.
The inside of the card reads: Your never more than a thought away!




Here she is in a close up. I feel like my coloring is getting better. Although I have to say I am having major trouble with the pinks. It's so frustrating but I love the blended look of the purples.
