It's been way too long!!

July...that was my last post! Sorry, it has taken me so long to get back on here. Life kinda threw a wrench into my world and it has been a crazy year to say the least! Between moving to another state, moving again to a different town, going through a divorce and moving yet again...oh lord have I lost my mojo for crafting. It's been a crazy emotional roller coaster and I am ready to get off of it already! But all in time and I am slowly putting the pieces back. I still have a lot of work ahead of me but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

I have learned one thing: life is so unexpected! But it's all for lessons. As long as I can see the lesson in everything, it makes it all worth while. I tell you the big "D" has got to be the hardest thing I have ever gone through. At least I have to say that I am a lot stronger, my skin is a lot thicker and I am getting through it. Thank God for the support of my friends and family, they have been the best medicine!! Now to rediscover myself and start having fun :)

Since the move all my crafting tools and supplies are packed away...yet again! I did leave a couple of things out,  I just have to find the time now to get back into creating and enjoy making something for a change. So hopefully I will be able to post something crafty soon. But I have created two things that I think are worth posting...let me know what you guys think!

I got a nice white netbook and thought: "Hhhhmmmm I think it's time to put some vinyl on that!" So after debating what to stick on my clean white netbook I came up with this...

I have to say that I am extremely happy the way this came out. I just love her flowing long hair. I have been growing out my hair for a while now and I haven't had long hair in quite some time. At this point in my life, I am loving my long hair. For a while I was into short hair, it was just easier to maintain with two kids. But since I love belly dancing I figured it was time to grow it out, long hair just looks so beautiful on a belly dancer! So this time around I am in love with my long hair. I still have more to grow but I am loving what I got! So this decal of a girl with long flowing hair fits me right now, perfect to represent me at the moment!

Here is a little something else I made and ohhhh I think he is just so adorable!!! I was over my cousins house and the kids wanted to play with some Play-Doh and of course I couldn't resist and had to play as well. So I came up with the cutest little robot...

Since it is Play-Doh by the time I got to taking a picture he kinda started drying out on me and cracking. But this just inspired me and I am ready to try out polymer clay. I have been wanting to play with it for a while and I think it will become a new hobby. So stay tuned for some clay creations that won't fall apart on me.

Slowly getting my creativity mojo back ;)
