March 30 Days Of Lists Mini Album

 This year I decided to do #30daysoflists . I've done it before but not along with everyone. Last time I waited 2 months later to do my #30daysoflists mini album. What fun I had this time. I felt a different flow of creativity come out everyday when working on pages. The mini album I used this time was from an Etsy shop . I definitely would buy from her again. It was the perfect size for me and a nice good variety of different pages. 
  If you ever get a chance to do the #30daysoflists do it. It's so much fun!!! 

I'm sharing photos of the different pages I did. I have to admit I used some paper pages I thought I'd never use. What a great challenge for me. 

All finished. Look at all this THICKNESS! Nothing but lots of creativity.

Former Portland Trail Blazer Jerome Kersey

Hearing the news that the former Portland Trail Blazer died was shocking and sad. What a nice guy he was. Seeing him around town was nothing. I so remember when he played for the Blazers. Glad we were able to share our respects.

My Orla Kiely Weekender Bag

  I'm glad I picked this Orla Kiely weekender bag up from Target. It's actually a cosmetic bag but I've seen many people fill them in various ways.
  Inside mine it's packed with mix media products. Sprays, inks, doodling pad, water colors, brushes etc. 

  So glad I purchased this bag. Having it packed for a grab and go will be perfect.

  I've always had a little addiction to journals and planners but as time goes on I've grown more and more into them. It's something about being able to jot down memories, feelings, quotes, prayers, jokes etc.. When it comes to these cuties I haven't wrote anything in them yet except one. I feel like a journal horder. 
  When I look for journals the thing(s) I look for are 1⃣. The cover 2⃣. Ruled line space 3⃣. Size of the journal and 4⃣. How useful will it be for me. For 2015 I'm going to work on using what I have and not ordering or buying more. Let me start that TODAY! 
  In the photos below hopefully you can see the type of journals I have in my stash. My shoe journal (A favorite of mine) has photos of all my shoes of when/where I've bought them. I had a fun time putting that together. That's one I was totally committed to from start to finish. Adding to it will be easy. I say that because I know I'll be buying more shoes. Lol. 

  Look at these pretty colors. Pokadots... LOVE THEM!!

January 1, 2015

Happy January 1, 2015. How was New Years Eve? I didn't do much. I stayed home and pampered my cold. Luckily I'm on the down side of it. Not really much to say other than I'm happy to have spent the day with my family. Here's a little photo journal of part of the day. 
My first "Carla" selfie of 2015. This is my first of many. 

Maliyah with her dad (Andre). I try to capture more pictures with them together, but it doesn't all ways work out. I'm working on that for 2015. Steven (grandpa) with Andre and Maliyah I really like. For me with a quick glance Andre looks like Steven a lot. While Andre was growing up I never thought so. 
Maliyah and I topped of the evening with a Starbucks. We ordered to go, but we decided to sit and enjoy our drinks PLUS take a few selfies.
