cReaTivE tYPe + ART journal

My good friend Charmane Koch has a great forum called Chat with Charm. It’s a one-stop-shop for just about every Blog/Manufacturer Challenge in Australia and overseas, including DT/CT Calls. Gotta love that!!!

Last week she ran a CyberCrop which gets you motivated to do some challenges and try new ones too.

Here are my picks from the CC…….

The lastest challenge over at The Creative Type is to use a word not from your native tongue. I cheated a little, coz my parents were born in Italy, but you know what…….it’s not MY lingua franca.

I used The Polkadot Place kit that the beautiful Bridgette Hatton puts together each month.

I love the challenges over at A Year in The Life of An Art Journal but rarely get around to them. Happy to report Idid this one and managed to get a whole lotta yuck off my chest.

I guess no-one takes abandonment very well. I generally try to empathise with the other person when they do things I find really really stoopid. This time though, I really didn’t see it coming, and haven’t spoken to her since. Time to let that pigeon fly away, never to return.

I hope you’re enjoying this creative spurt as much as I am. I’ll have some exciting news to share with you soon, and some canvases. Whheeeeee-heeeeeeee!!

Don’t forget you can follow my blog via Google or FaceBook. Unlike some, I will share on both media continually. That’s my new promise for 2011.

    Gorgeous Gigi!I can relate to your Yuck Page too! What is it with some people that they feel they can just dump you like that! I have two best friends that did that too me and both own scrapbooking shops beleive it or not! One was my bridesmaid! Both just dumped me! I have reached out over the years to reconnect, even with facebook how hard is it to stay intouch you know! They wont even confirm my friendship! I dont know what i have ever done to them, they have said nothing ever to me and i dont ever remember doing anything to warrent being treated this way! It reached a point where you just have to say that to them hey! There is alot of Power in those two words! Good on you!
