It's Grammy Night!

Hum......(i'm thinking Lady GaGa). Who's gonna take the show tonight????? I'm gonna be glued to the TV for this years Grammy's! I have always watched em- I can even remember watching them as a little girl (used a Goody brush back then for my mic-ha!). I always wanted to be a Rockstar! Well...i' won't be quitting my day job anytime soon- but I'm a Rockstar when i'm on my own living room stage- that's for sure!

Enjoy your evening.

This thing called life...it's lovely and can be stormy too. I've been reading a lot lately- this quote really made me think about myself.

A sobering thought: what if, at every moment, I am living up to my full potential.-Jane Wagner


Enjoy your day...make it a great one!

ps- i treated myself to a 10 minute massage at Whole Foods yesterday- WOW! I felt like a brand new woman...it's hard for me to stay balanced- this really helped me get my soul, heart and mind back in alignment. What a difference this short about of paid professional touch can make- yes indeed.

Oh- one more thing. Can't wait to show you my new valentine's :)- coming soon (as soon as i can buy a new memory card for my dang camera).

Happy Birthday to my sisters- Vanessa (Ness) and Amanda (Beez)

Happy Birthday!!
My sweet sisters share their birthday- time to celebrate! Today is their special day- they are exactly TWO years apart. I send love and hugs and big kisses to both of them today- Make a wish...may all your hopes and dreams come true this year!!!! One lives in Miami Florida and one in Monte Vista Colorado (I wished they lived here in Denver!). This is a pic of my little sisters when they were baby girls - seems like yesterday (they are gonna kill me :).


Love you Ness and Beez- who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? Thats CRAP- YES you can!!
Love you my sweeties!
~your big sis~
Peace and God Bless-
Jodi :)

An evening of peace

Ahhh....the feeling of peace in the heart. Life sure is interesting....what a journey...i'm enjoying the ride- are you?
I created a little bag last night- no intentions- no expectations...just stitches and in the end...peace. I like it.
I'm just loving "lil bag" making- here's a couple more. Since i don't use a pattern, they come out different every time- a true "one of a kind".

Smile today- gonna catch some of those sun rays today- it's chilly willy but the sun is shining!!

Fabric Book

Good Morning...the sun is beautiful and it's gonna be a wonderful day!

Last night i worked on a fabric book (made of canvas). I stitched different fabrics on the pages and have lots more finishing touches to add- i.e. glitter; hand stitches; buttons and i'm sure i'll find more to add after all that. This book is for one of my sister's- hope she likes it.

Lil Dream Books

Hope you like em. I used my Rosin paper and painted up a storm yesterday! I had fun painting these little books- added some paper and stitched the day away. I also stitched clear plastic over the covers- not sure why but i like em. They are about 6" x 4".
I love little books and decided to make a few of my own.
Have an awesome day everyone and i'm off to paint a little more today :). Painting makes me SO happy!

Harmony with guitar

Well- had an awesome day! Hope you all did as well. Although i didn't get a chance to play with my rosin paper, i did complete a painting project. I think i like it- not sure yet. i used a pretty large canvas and layered it with tissue paper, an old sewing pattern (basically more tissue paper- but i like the way this lays vs regular tissue paper) and drips of paint, more paint, paper and topped it with lots of crystals. Oh...my letters are grunge-board by Tim Holtz (can get them at Michael's). So here it is...I am beyond proud of myself for starting a project and completing it! I am not loving the black at this point- perhaps it will grow on me.
Good night everyone...I'm off to make some dinner for my son and I (hope he enjoys our salad- i can hear it now....um..."can't we go grab something?")

Happy New YEar to all!!

Where the heck have I been?? I have missed posting on my blog and i have allowed life to get in the way of my dreams. When will i ever get a grip on "balance"? If only i could- perhaps this year i will get better at it anyway.
I am going to "play" tomorrow- I can't wait. I bought a roll of Rosin paper and can't wait to play with it- i will post tomorrow pm (hopefully). I am playing all week- a week of vacation....Yea!

Happy New Year to everyone!
