I love quotes, do you?

I might repeat to myself, slowly & soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound; if I can remember any of the damn things. – Dorothy Parker

I came across this paper in the scrapbook section. It was just screaming to be colored in, so being the color’er that I am, I scooped it up and put it in my cart. It started out really quite boring. Dontchathink?

But with a few markers added to the mix, it became this.

And now it’s hanging up like this…..

In a place where there is much reading and learning going on.

LOL!!! I had to refrain myself from doodling this page up. I thought I’d lose the whole quote series if I did. All the best, guys :) Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks you guys! Your all so encouraging!

Mary, the flamingo turned out to be female! Can you believe it? Had me fooled, and we named her Phyllis!

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
