independance day.

happy 4th of July!!

Today started out kinda gloomy. Which was actually so perfect. We are both off today so Joey and I are making good use of the hours to work on our "other" jobs. Joe is busy editing and working on new projects for NCL - I am finishing up some Portrait Bug stuff.

We have picked the Design Team and all designers have been notified and accepted! I'm so happy that part is over. Now I'm just getting ready for our first meeting and getting the Portrait Bug Blog up and running. I haven't announced the team yet - waiting on bios - hopefully I'll have them and post tomorrow.

This morning I realized that I'm not being as productive creatively as I really want to be. I sketch like a mad-woman but never really scrap or anything. But a tiny bit of work in the morning helps focus me so much, so I decided to make this....

It took less than 5 min... lol. But I've had this piece of corkboard sitting on my desk from the move where is was originally part of the cork runner I had in my studio at 751... and i thought it would make a good atc cover.

I am pretty excited about the ScrapJammies Circle Journal I'm doing. This is the cover of mine. I'll post the rest a bit later with Jan's pages too, I got her really cute CJ called "guilty pleasures". In it I make a shocking confession.

Well I have to get back to some things. Joey, the dogs, and I are heading out to Liberty State Park to see the JC and Macy's fireworks tonight. I hope hope hope they don't freak out.

Have a great 4th!
