Mood Board

A Mood Board is a type of collage consisting of images text and sample of objects in a composition.
Graphic, Interior, Industrial, Fashion Designers, Photographers and other Creative Aftist use this to illustrat the style they wish to pursue.

January's challenges at Jennibellie workshop was creating a Mood Board that shows what you want for 2016.

I am a person who is easily distacted.  Anyone who knows me knows I can be talking about something and if a pretty butterfly flies by I am like  look at the beautiful colors.  I have gotten better with time but it still happens from time to time.  I created a mood board to participate in the January challenge.

I created the mood board on the cover of my multi-media paper book and It is finish for the moment.



I printed pictures from the 1970 of east livery where I grew up.  Both my parents were alive and my youngest sister was born so this time period I had a complete family.



Everyone in this picture has red ruby slippers "There is no place like home."  I love returning to the east liberty part of town.  It is hard to see the work love so I  have to get a new white gel pen and make the work pop!



The Brass Rail my dad would get the family fish sandwiches from there.  So as I find the right fish stickers it will be place somewhere in this area.




Sometimes you are so busy taking care of business you forget to Dream.  Some of my best creative ideas come to me in a dream.



The Dancing yellow dress.  Ever put on a dress and feel wonderful and happy and pretty that you just have to dance.



When I take time for me I create, by drawing, painting, sewing, crocheting writing.  So this is a reminder to take some me time.




I love owls these are saying " IT'S OWL GOOD!"  lol!

As time goes on I know I will add to it which is the main reason it is on the cover.

2016 word INSPIRATION

 I have to add this to the mood board.  A reminder to be inspired and inspire  other of live the life they love.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
