Every day has a prompt, but it's up to you if you want to use the prompt or not. There are also themes to choose from, or "one staple" collages, or anything you want to do. It's not about rules or working on something you don't enjoy, it's about being creative. Every day. It's fun. It's loose and free.

This weeks challenge was to add an inspirational quote.
Turned out to be a sad week with the loss of the lovable mascot at the Friends of Felines Rescue Center. It really is amazing how the internet pulls people together. People that never met were in tears and sharing their grief together, while miles apart. I chose to use the entire weeks spread in memory of Putter.
This spread is from Easter week. The challenge was to use food or snack boxes in your art which I did...literally. Creative, huh? Added some cut-outs and color and came up with what looks like an ad rather than a journal page. Did I include that here? No. Go get a box of Welch's anything and you'll see my page.
The inside, however, I kept within the theme of Easter. Not a lot of anything to write about and no pictures. The one important piece on this page is the quote from Leah Fung, posted to Facebook on Easter Sunday. The image referred to is not included...as I understand it, it was a complex drawing of the pathways within a cell. Leah wrote:
"Thought I’d share this image with you. I know it’s not your usual Easter Sunday inspirational picture, which I love seeing, but I’ll explain. It’s an illustration of the known cell signaling pathways of just ONE protein receptor (ER-alpha, for example) involved in the growth of just ONE tissue (breast, in this case). There is still so much unknown with just this single protein in this one tissue, let alone its function in all the other tissues of the body. And just imagine there are roughly 100,000 proteins in the human body and each with different mechanisms and pathways of their own. (Sorry, my geek is showing, lol). The complexities of how the body functions at the molecular level are astounding, and what we know is still infinitesimal -- that isn’t an exaggeration. I’m showing this to you because today I’ve been thinking about why I believe in God. It’s not because of some giant leap of faith -- I’m not that strong -- or just because of how my parents raised me or what I learned in church. The fact is the more I learn about how the body functions or any science that makes me curious enough to wade into it, the more I’m convinced these things can’t be random or ever conceived by man. We’re clever but not that clever. At least for me, and what very little I’ve learned, it must be God. Happy Easter, friends!"

And you must check out her holiday house tours for some exquisite decorating ideas. 4umarlene1 on YouTube. She definitely has the magic touch. I'm truly excited for her and I wish her the best of luck!
Okay, so I really got into spring cleaning this year and cleaned like I've Never cleaned before! Part of my motivation was due to Sophia at My Great Challenge. My goodness, is she a whirlwind of activity. She cleans, she paints, she builds walls and tables...yes, "builds" them. Just makes it all look so simple... I think that's because she knows what she's doing and explains it so well. Her blog is loaded with great information and I truly love her videos. Seriously, you need to check her out, she'll make you proud to be a woman. mygreatchallenge on YouTube.
I cleaned and cleaned, and cleaned some more...(omg, the nooks and crannies of a home are hard to get to) moved furniture, sorted out drawers and closets, and brought out all of my favorite knick knacks and put them back again. I'm not all shabby chic, and not all vintage, but I have a lot of "old" stuff. And I have a large enough bedroom to use part of it as a craftroom. I cleaned that too. The problem here is that you have to empty everything before you can move it...oh my aching body. Gave oodles of stuff away and did my best to shabby it up! I like it. I'm happy with it for now, and I can still add to it. Here's a peek at a corner of my room.
See you soon!
Yay! It's time for ICAD! Well, not exactly, but as Tammy says, it will be here before we know it! This is an easy and fun challenge that begins in June. Check it out and share the joy!
Would you believe I was going to post this a month ago? April 20th to be exact. I think I was having some problems trying to get the link right and forgot about it. Better late than never, and still enough time to get the word out to anyone that doesn't already know about ICAD.
