Hopes and Dreams

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share an Art Journal page I did today. Some of you who know me or have been on FB know that this is the week my son started College in Fl., and reasons out of our control we weren't able to be there.

Needless to say I haven't been happy not being able to see Brandon off to college, but at least I've been able to see all the photos he's posted on FB! I haven't talked to him since last Saturday before he moved in, but I'm hoping he calls this weekend!

I'm so proud of him, he was offered an amazing scholarship to Rollins that made him able to attend, so we are very thankful for that, but he also earned it, he's determined and has his goals set high. He also received the Bonner Leadership scholarship that just a handful of kids get and I know he is going to do great things. It looks like he's been having lots of fun in the retreat they had for those students, thank you FB!!!

Yesterday and today was move in for all students & orientation for both students and parents & the Convocation was today, Brandon was chosen to hold the flag. I sooo wish I could have been there, but hopefully my ex-MIL got some good ones. I hope I don't come off as bragging, I'm just so darn proud of him!!!!

So, I've had all week off because I was going to be in Fl and I don't start my new job till Monday, so I've had a lot of time on my hands. I slept in most days, done some art and took 2 online classes that are due to expire on Saturday, nothing like waiting a whole year to start! They have been great, they are both Christy Tomlinson, first one was "She had 3 hearts" a journal workshop and the 2nd was "She Art". I've done some art journaling & I think I will start a girl soon.

I got off my pity party today finally and decided to start and finish an art journal page about my week of emotions and Brandon's new adventure. I got the inspiration from watching a you-tube video by "StudioJanine", I love the colors & the words. I changed it up my own take on it, but the colors & layout are pretty much the same. I did write down all my feelings first on the page & then went from there. I'm pretty happy about how it turned out. I just love art journaling, it's just a great way to get everything out on paper & play!

Thanks for taking a peak!
As always, Gilby and I love your comments, his tail just wags away when he see's me smile!
Thanks for stopping by!
