Happy Monday...I think!

Just wanted to say a quick hello and I am truly wishing you all are having a great day... I know that for myself...Mondays can be rough!!
I spent this weekend playing...yeah...ditching my chores, in my studio kind of play.
It was such a great getaway, and I didn't even have to leave home...my fave!
So, I have been itching all day while at work to get back to my studio...with coffe in hand... I am off!!
Enjoy your day!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Some catching up...

Ok...so, Ophelia pulled her vanishing act again....sheesh. 
I just can't keep up it seems.I truly hope that your holidays were fantastic and all that you hoped they would be. It was great around here, but the time just went by too quickly, and tomorrow, sigh, we return to school.

Today I spent time in my studio, getting ready for a challenge that I started for the year.  Unfortunately, my technology is not playing nicely, and I couldn't scan these pages, so the trusty phone camera came to the rescue...and again I say, sheesh!
So, this is the calendar challenge by Kate...over at the Kathryn Wheel.  There is just something about this challenge that gets my creativity going...and well, lets hope I can keep up this year!!!




 
Time spent in my journal today.  This journal is so fat!!!  I started it at some point last year, and thankfully there are only two more pages in it.  I barely closes!!, but you know what...I love a big, fat, full journal!!
 
See....I just love it!!!
 
 
And, I thought....long and hard, I thought about my word for 2013...
I've come up with BELIEF.
More on that later.
 
Until next time,
Ophelia
