Day Two


I'm posting my Day {Two} page bright and early. On my husband's birthday, I fully embrace my gratitude for him. He gives me strength and hope and humor. I am so grateful to share my life with him:)

I'm having a harder time finding my flow working in this altered book, but I'm enjoying the challenge. I'm hearing that many others are feeling blocked. Let's all support one another to show up and express ourselves..that's what it's all about!

Just Rhonda said...

Oh this is so awesome. Love how the photo of your hubby lets the words peek thru and love that circle on top. Wonderful entry and happy birthday to your hubby!!!

Yes, that is what it is all about. I am trying not to get caught up with the fact that I will be posting all my pages (then I start thinking are they cute enough, you know what I mean?) This challenge is really just for me to find some peace. But I am loving the additional benefit of connecting with so many new people. What fun!

What a lovely page you have made for your husband!
Love all the circles and the style of your altered book.
I too really wanted to make this kind of book this time....but I didn't find any, so I ended up making it on paperbags....well that will do... LOL
Love to see you on this second {21} as well, Kari.
Keep up the good work! You can do it! ;-)

Well your 'blocked' flow has some magic to it because I think these pages are very cool. I LOVE the circles with the words. Hand drawn or a stamp...diggin' it.
Cheers!

I'm always impressed when someone can put rings on stuff like this. If I'd tried it I guarantee it would have looked like I'd put my coffee mug down on it! The stitching is realyl cool.

I was getting that same blocked feeling. But I have to say that YOU gave me the inspiration. You are always there for me my friend, even though you might not realize it.

Love your gratitude sentiments and the many techniques you're using. I just scrolled down all of your blog and it looks so interesting! I'll be back for another visit.

So sad about the little boy, Alex. My cousin died of a brain tumor six years ago and it was so devastating for our family. My prayers are with that little boy and his family.

Nicole said...

Lovin' both days work!

la vie en rose said...
