Get Messy Art Journal - Goals!

Thanks for joining me today for a Thursday recap of my get messy journal.




Shall we begin?

If you are new here Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal





So there you have it! I ADORE these stamps by Ashley Goldberg. Loved using them to create my pages. I am having so much fun with this journal. It's like a diary for grown-ups. I was prompted by a sweet girl's blog I read you can check her out here:  Zie of Darling Dear . She wrote a post on being accountable. I have all these things I want to do and I just don't have any time to complete them all. So I decided I needed to start acting on them. The first thing was to write them out. I want to find out what I am good at. Wish me luck as I travel with this journal on my adventure! 

What are some of your goals?

My Huffy Beach Cruiser - Let's Ride!

Hi Friends! Today I am sharing some fun DIY projects I made for my beach cruiser. I really really enjoy my bike. It's a tad tall for me but being on my tippy toes is something I still have to get used too. The smaller cruiser would have been way to small for me. So here goes... I added a cute basket and bell to give my bike a fun look.
she's so pretty!

ofcourse when I bike with my little guy drinks & snacks will be inside!

purchased my bell and basket at target

I decided to spray paint my bell pink because thats my favoritee color :)


here is my basket after two coats of white spray paint







This is my bike before & my cute riding partner 

 

love being on the road I feel like a kid again!


My Huffy beach cruiser review: This is a starter bike. I say that because its a lil stiff to ride uphill but what bike isnt? This bike does not have brakes on the handle bars but if you need to brake just pedal backwards. I love the price I paid for it. It was $88 and you can buy it here Walmart.com I wanted a bike that was put together and that I could start riding right away. It's a fun bike. It was my Mother's day gift and actually all my kids enjoy riding it. Now I need to get my two girls their own beachcruiser! If you want to hit the pavement this summer def ck it out!  You can also check out Huffy's  website for some super cute bikes if your willing to pay a little more.

Thanks for coming by my sweet friends!

Amy Tan's Mixed Media Class

 
 
Last Friday I took Amy Tan's mixed media class. It was so fun! A group of my friends (who by the way I met all on IG) and I enjoyed this class so much. Amy taught us some tricks on how she stitches  and how to incorporate mixed media onto our PL pages. Our class kit contained some exclusive items! I recently am loving to watercolor so this class was right up my ally! I had so much fun, it was as if it was a reuinon from our last class with Amy which you can check out here
 
So here are some pictures of our day...

Workspace Wednesday!

Hi Friends! Linking up today with Marcy Penner over at hello forever. Today I am at work but I am wishing to sneak in some craft-time! I am Deputy for the State Of California and on lunch I like to plan my crafty evenings. So today I brought with me these new stamps by Ashley Goldberg that I am dying to create with.

Take a peek of what my lunchtime looks like.......
 

 
Nevermind my greek yogurt that I sweeten up with some honey nut cherrios :)
 
So yes, today I am just dreaming of what I can create with these beauties.
My two sweet IG friends and I are challenging ourselves to create something and send them to eachother kind of like a swap.
 
This picture is also bittersweet because on August 15th I will be taking a six month leave from work to be home with my baby who starts kindergarten. I am really looking forward to helping out in his classroom and enjoying him. I will no longer have to commute to work which takes me 2 hours everyday. I will miss my court family here and so thats why I say it's bittersweet. I am also looking forward to having more time to create with my crafty tools.
 
Happy Workspace Wednesday!
