Blogger Friend and a Challenge

Hello Caroline 

Remember I had mentioned that I met a new friend/blogger at the Crop & Create event.
I had just happen to wander on her blog and from her content, knew she was from Canada.
After messaging back and forth, I come to find out that she is from MY town…how cool is that!!!
We were both excited as we were both going to this event, then we could meet.
She didn't recognize me at first (as she thought I would be taller)…that is a new one to me, lol.

After chatting back and forth, we have been to a few crops at the same time, and didn't even know it.
It was odd that I didn't remember her, as I visit all the tables just as much as I work on my projects when I go to a crop :)

We chatted quite a bit at the crop, while we were shopping, creating and waiting in the "make and take" lines.
I come to find out that Caroline is interested in art journaling, but hasn't taken the plunge yet.
I have done and completed an art journal book (Heart Journal) but it is more in a scrapbooking style rather than a mixed media style.
I have purchased mixed media supplies over the years, but have yet to put any to paper.
So I suggested that we challenge each other to do a page…to at least start.
Caroline suggested we have the theme of Fall/Thankful.
And we have a month to complete the page.
I have a lot of ideas…but now to learn how to use the supplies and put my ideas onto a page.
Wish us luck :)

I still haven't taken any photos of my pages from this last weekend :(
Soon, I promise…soon.

Tooth adventure:
I woke up to my face even more swollen :(
It was tender, but not as bad as yesterday :)
So hopefully this new set of antibiotics are working :)
When I showed my honey how swollen my face was, he said he couldn't tell.
Couldn't tell!!!!! Seriously we have been married for over 26 yrs and dating for 4 yrs before that….does he even know what I look like!
But I do think the swelling is a bit less tonight.

Thankful Thursday:
