We’ve lived here in Seattle for almost a year now and we are still trying to find our favorite breakfast place. The problem with having so many kinds of good food choices is that we end up liking different dishes served in different places. We are yet to find the one place where we all like something from the same menu. That’s ok, though, because we enjoy the continuing search. If it means trying all sorts of food and discovering new dishes then I, for one, look forward to the adventure.
It’s one thing I miss about being in San Antonio. We’ve lived there long enough to be familiar with the food and the best places to get the fix for anything we crave for the day. I miss the anticipation of clocking out from work and looking forward to yummy bagels, tacos, or omelettes. I miss The Egg and I most of all. I miss digging into their greek omelet with the artichoke hearts and the sun dried tomatoes. For now, I’ll just have to be content with sit down breakfasts at home. At least there’s an Einstein Bros. close by. What’s important is the time I spend with my family, sitting down and enjoying our moment together before I go to bed for the day.
This layout is based on prompts from Color, Stories, Inspiration and I used sketch #422 from scrapbookchallenges.com. I rotated the sketch to the right to better accommodate my 2 4×6 photos since it looked like the sketch is more for an 8×8 page with one 4×6 photo in it.
The teacup accents are actually banner pieces from an outer space/ alien themed kit I was using for making pages about my nephew. I heat embossed them with white embossing powder and was pleasantly surprised about the “ceramic” effect it produced. They look almost like real ceramic cups (except the handles are reshaped paperclips. The yellow sticker in the right upper corner actually has an image of a chicken (or turkey… i think) and placing the teacup accent over just the right spot covered up the drawing AND was just the right place to make it look like there was “steam” coming out. I also ground up some watercolors and watered it down to give me some wet media to create the border around the page. I finished the page off with some embroidery floss stapled to create a border around the photo as well.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! My Etsy shop is finally open. So far, I only have a few pieces of earrings on sale but I will be posting more items such as bead jewelry bracelets and some necklaces as well. I’ll also accept special orders if you message me soon enough. I do have a full time job so it might take me a week or so to plan, purchase materials, and make the piece you request but I will give it priority on days (or nights) that I’m not at work.
My etsy shop name: glittergluepaperart. If you’re still stumped as to what to gift someone for the holidays, come check out my shop. You just might find that special something.
