Credit to Connie Prince's BeeHappy @ Gotta Pixel ...is what I have been doing, these past three weeks of anxiety and uncertainty. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, you can find out by clicking here to read my previous post. But better let the images speak: We bought this before all the hospital thing, when we went to the Identity exhibition at the Wellcome Collection. I don't normally buy things in shops like this, but it seemed reasonably priced(£12) and it was the last of its kind in the shelves. Not only I thought the book had my name written on it, but I had just read a post from my friend Annemarie about Moleskin books and also found (again, thanks to Annemarie, the wonder woman) Marit's blog about Zentangling. Having *Zentagled* (posh, modern way to refer to *doodle*?) since 1970, I could not resist to have a go now, this seemed the perfect book for it. I wanted to be away from the computer, blogging about this issue somehow did not seem right, so in between writings I started to let my mind go and these are some of the things I enjoyed making: I used BeeYond Happy by Cherie Shields @ GottaPixel

bits & pieces from Digital Crea France's designers, Pouyou,Choubinette,Moi, Chriscrap these and the next couple of pages are photos taken with flash,I'm experimenting to see the best way to create elements for scrapbooking from this kind of stuff. I put the paper together (background) the bits are from Mary's Mixes and string and staples from Digital Crea freebies. Alpha by Connie Prince @ GottaPixel. background paper and alpha from LoveMyBoys, CreationsByRachael @ Gotta Pixel. The rest is Isabel Mendez's Aghata kit, also @ Gotta Pixel
As you can see, Sarita loved this thing so much she added her collaboration Faery from Chriscrap's Far Away,frayed fabric from Droopette's around the World, heart, string of clouds and bow from Choubinette's Still Loving you, all @ Digital Crea. Dymo alpha from Gunhill Storeide. So, there, this is what I have been up to. I know I can't be compared to Marit not in a million years,but not only has helped me relaxing and at the same time creating, but also has given me another thing we share a passion with my daughter...and that is a wonderful experience. So, as the text in the first image says, I have found more than one good side to all the stress and anxiety they put me through the past few weeks, and showed me once again that the ones who are there for us are always there...they aren't many, but sure are first quality, amazing friends.
Thanks to all of you who came over to comment in my previous post, I have felt beautifully your presence over this whole thing,and its great to see that people are willing to make an effort to leave a comment here too :)

Former performer, eternal traveler, a warrior of life. Have always loved all form of artzy expression and somehow I ended up falling in love with digital scrapbooking.In 2009 started as a Creative Team for Karen Schulz and Katie Castillo from Snickerdoodle Designs and Just So Scrappy respectively. At the moment I am part of Etc by Danyale's & Mye De Leon's Creative Teams,was also with Crisdam Designs by Isabel Mendez but had to downsize as my health is not taking very well too much activity. Have guested for CaptivatedVisions and Connie Prince and have been invited by a few other designers...blessed, hey? I would have never thought a year ago I would be working alongside some of the most amazing designers!
Hi and thanks for popping in. I started moaning and groaning online at first because of the frustration a hip replacement gone terribly wrong, making records of our (small but beautiful) family. Then I found scrapbooking and it has now become the main way to do so.Have fun and, if it's not too much bother, let us know you've been here.
