It Shouldn't Matter....really !!!!

Hi everyone, yes it's been a while since I've posted.  It's been about three months and lots of things have changed but lots have remained the same.  The holidays came and went and it was really great to spend time with friends and family.  It's been a tough road for me physically and emotionally but I am hanging in there and doing the best I can. 
To bring you all up to date, I am created some new pieces , am taking the LifeBook class with Tamara, doing the swaps at Roses on My Table, working with Monica Zuniga and doing Pet Dreams with Ady.
I think I'm in over my head but then again, I usually work pretty well under pressure. I'm totally loving LifeBook and it's something I'm almost totally up to date with and it makes me proud...!!! Learning all these awesome new techniques is just so much fun. I love to play and get my hands dirty. I just have one little peeve.....Why is it that when you show someone (family) something you've created they are so prone to critique your work as if they have some kind of!!  This is especially true if it's some kind of self-portrait . I thought it was a likeness and not a photograph.  I'm sorry I'm venting but it happened to me today and something that usually doesn't phase me just made me angry....OK here is the page I did for the class...I like how it turned out and I'm not done with it yet either.  What do you guys think?

This one is also for LifeBook ...still need to add my quote..

These are my latest tags for the swap at ROMT...
I've got to show you all of the mandalas I've created.  I'm  working on putting them all in an album. They were just absolutely so much fun to create.  If you haven't created any, you should really try it.

I was checking out some pics that were posted from CHA and was drooling over all of the new
art supplies coming on the market soon.  Love the Suzi Blue stamps, Donna Dewberry's Geltatto's and she has a gorgeous set with everything you need to journal with.  It's too bad you need so much money to get all these goodies but there's absolutely no reason why you can't create art with what you already have.  I try to add to my stuff little by little and I know I have more than I need. 
Gotta tell you all I have a huge stash of scrapbooking magazines which I don't really use anymore and I'm thinking of having a giveaway on my blog.  If you're interested, leave a comment and I will gather some up and put a pic out so you can see the issues. 
Well, thanks for sticking it out with me , glad I was able to blog today. 
Sending you all Blessings and hugs...take care. !!!!
