the gift of today

there's a good chance that something about his day will
speak to your heart…..

or maybe something will even tickle your fancy….

but, one thing's for sure…..
this day has the makings to be the best day of the entire year!
{p.s.  and the same goes for tomorrow and all the days after that, too!}

this page was created for the DLP week 38 challenge to
add a feather to your page.

little white pen

this week, our DLP challenge  is to use a white pen 
prominently on our journal page…..

and i'm super happy about that, because i think the little white pen
is one of the sweetest little treasures in my art box.
it's great for adding a little sparkle in just the right places…...

and no matter how you use it,
it can make any journal page seem like a masterpiece!

when i saw this week's DLP challenge to add a face to your page,
i began to panic a little, and quite frankly, i had a fleeting moment
of trying to figure out how i could "get around it".  :))
of course, the whole point of a challenge is to, well, 
challenge yourself to do the things you're not comfortable doing
(and many times to do the things you think you can't do)…..

so, i went to my stand-by method of resolving these issues:
eat half a bar of chocolate, turn on some really good music,
dig deep down in my heart, and just start drawing……
with no editing.
{well, okay, maybe a little editing.}

and the amazing thing is that while i was getting lost in the music, 
my heart kind of took over and led the way….
and before i knew it, i was able to eat the 
other half of the chocolate bar as a big reward!  
woo hoo!  xox

hat of paper

this week, the Documented Life Project challenged us to use numbers,
and it reminded me of a fun song my little dutch sweetie 
used to sing to our kids when they were younger.

it's a very popular counting song about a sweet little paper hat.

the song doesn't include a bear or a heart-balloon….
but, when you're dealing with kids and paper hats,
a bear and a heart-balloon really are must-haves, don't you think?  

here's the rough translation:
one, two, three, four, 
hat of, hat of,
one, two, three, four,
hat of paper.

it's a really cute little song and it sounds so much better in Dutch.
especially if it's being sung by someone with a sweet little Dutch accent. xox
you can listen to it here!
