I still have not finished the sides of this doorway and this is not the most attractive view of the storage above, but I liked how the pages look hanging for the glue to dry. I glued fragile papers to card stock last night. All of these are to be integrated into other concoctions after the paste dries. That is a piece of an old door hung sideways above the door. Tacks and string make up the drying line.
I also finished another journal last night. A scrapbook paper that looks likes vintage gift wrap - even the creases and discoloration are printed on it. How cute are these little angels. Again my style is restrained - I added little rhinestone "blings" to a few of the stars. The metal word was in a goodie package from someone. Black velvet ribbon and a length of flat back pearl trim finish this one. I found a few more compostion books in the stash and covered them for embellishing as well last night.
I am one pound from my halfway goal - really watching all my food and exercise carefully - so I have been doing a lot of cooking.
Last night's dinner is easy and fairly quick - baked tilapia pockets, rice, and salad. My crew loves it and I can come home get it into the oven and onto their plates in less than an hour. I never cooked fish - okay I never really cooked - until recently. But since I have started cooking - I love it and it has been easy to incorporate my eating needs into really healthy and delicious meals for everyone. New favorites include - the fish pockets and Barefoot Contessa's oven roasted tomatoes on a salad. As I find recipes, I will be sharing them.
I have a beautiful life - and a teen driver. Pray hard and watch carefully for the little blue "wind- up" car with a really pretty redheaded driver.
Have a great day.
