Get Messy! October's Prompt and Link Up!

Get Messy Thursday! Today's prompt is Gratitude. I think it is so fitting since November is in two days. As I was reflecting on this prompt I chose to be grateful for my family. I am proud of each one of them. They fill my heart with love. I love to cook for them and always excited when they share bits of their days with me. I am always an open ear. I love listening to them and watching their facial expressions. So I could go on and on so let me get to my pages :)   




I had to throw some glitter in there.






 

This is what happens when I get a hold of alphabet stamps ... they never line up.

Paint. Plan. Play with Ashley Goldberg!

Hi friends!

As October comes to an end I am so excited for November! I am starting a class taught by Ashley G. I am crazy about all her stamps and papers! They are so unique and fun! You can take a look at her work here in her Etsy shop. So the class is through Studio Calico and I decided I needed to get my supplies together. I had bought this old cola crate from a vintage flea market a while back I had no idea what I was going to put in it but for $5 it was a steal. So here is how I have her loaded. 
These crate holds my: acrylic paints
-water pencils
- water soluble crayons
-masks
-gesso
-gel mediums 
-painting pots
Take a look see.......   



This photo is from Studio Calico... I beg you to zoom in on it- it's just ooozing with yumminess!
The class may still be open join with me!


Now the real question is - will I log on and keep up!? I am going to try my hardest! I am hoping this will help me out on the goal I had of making my own prints. I am trying to come clean and finish up my list before this year ends. I want to be on to bigger and better things such as new goals and challenges. I love learning. Some may say I'm addicted to taking classes but I'm all for making myself a better person. So friends there you have it! 

I will share my doodles and prints on here as the class rolls along.

Get Messy!

Well hello there! Starting your Thursday off with some GET MESSY today!? Yes!
You have come to the right place my friend! Today's get messy brought to you by the simple me.
Every week I feel like I am all over the place and I just wanted to change it up a bit. Pulled my energy to create these pages from peace that is within me. Sometimes I have to learn to just be still. I can not be in control of everything and everyone around me. So here we go... this is me being calm  :) that's a nervous smile lol


So this saying reminded me that I have so far to go with reaching my goals. A reminder to continue to work hard and have fun doing it. I'm an artist and all I want to do is create.  


Oh  you know a lil quote from my man Tom Cruise because hey lets get real ... that was best damn part of that movie! (Show me the money click here) ok ok I lied maybe this part was pretty good too!


These little spooky kids.... I had to. I found this stamp set at Joann's. I don't stamp much but I think they are pretty adorbs. 

So there you have my MESSY FRIENDS! GET MESSY WITH US! SHOW US WHAT YA GOT? 
Connect with us crafty vixens and use the hashtag #getmessyartjournal. We post every Thursday and would love to see what you create!

#GIRLBOSS FOUNDATION - Are you a Bad Ass?

Yes, that's me and any other Bad Ass women doing her thing! A couple months ago I read the book #girlboss and from then on I have been on fire! I have so many ideas and need to let them out! So with that being said here is this blog post. My good friend Linda told me about The #girlboss-foundation. I knew I needed to apply. Sophia Amoruso, the Founder and CEO of Nasty Gal is helping women like me with making our dreams into a reality. If you remember my goal was to design tees & prints and I wanted to do it by September. I'm one month short but happy to report my progress. 

Here is a tee I designed in my writing that was screen printed and is ready to sell! You can find it here JossiePosie . I am beyond excited! I am a Projectlifer and what that means is I document my families life by using pictures. I am preserving my families memories. There is so many women who also document their families life and I hope to target that audience. 




I also plan to target the scrapbooking and planner community. Scrapbooking is such an ugly word and some how someone decided that is what we were called. I do not want to label myself as a "scrapbooker". Scrapbooker is so far from being cool. I hope to bring that "cool factor" with my tees to the market. I love pretty paper, a fancy planner and embellishments. My plan also includes on designing coffee mugs, washi tape, and hand bags. The planner and scrapbook community have been neglected for far too long. I believe my company can grow because so many women LOVE buying pretty stationary. I'm trying to bring glam meets nerd to my tshirt line. My Company is called  Jossie Posie and I currently sell vinyl designs & banners. 

Here are the items I need to make this dream a reality. 

I am hoping the #Girlboss Foundation can see my plans through. With or without them I am going to make it happen. Why you ask? I am a bad ass and I deserve this. My mother died when I was 5. I had no choice but to go sit with my father at his store. I saw the way he treated his customers. I put in the hard work with him. You see I was a girl boss already at the age of  5. My father passed away when I was 12. He was the hardest working man I know. I only know hard work. Watch me now :)

*Thanks for stopping by and looking at my business plan. Please if I have inspired you - go apply for your own business plan with nastygal.com/girlboss-foundation/

Get Messy!!!

Ta da... Yes! It's get messy day!

I was trying to keep it simple for this week and wanted to stop after 2 pages but somehow a letter and some words wanted out. Let's Do this!


Studio Calico killed it with this printed craft tape- that stuff is my fave. 


I took this photo because I love to take this walk. I enjoy the view and I know this is my turn around point on my walk. It feels good to get to this point. 

Sticking to the FALL theme hey why not FALL in love? 
Again that washi tape did me in! 





One of my favorite sayings...



This here folks is an open letter. It is to a special someone. 

So there you have it my get messy friends!
