Something's not right...

Chaos. Bad energy. I don't know what it is, but emotions are running high around here. Maybe it's because I have a teenager in the house, or that I'm a slightly neurotic worrier with a teenager in the house, or that I have too much work on my plate, which may be spilling into my home life more than usual. Whatever it is, I'm ready for peace and calm to return to my home.

Balance.

Good karma.


On another note, my computer does not have a treasure trove of fonts at my disposal, so when I need words for my mixed media art, I end up using picmonkey. I have to upload a photo, cover it with a rectangle, then type the words. It's annoying, because I'm never quite sure what size fonts I need. The final step is to open a Word file and insert the "picture." The word art above is from two different pieces of art I was working on. I just add more to the space until I run out of room. The bad thing is, my printer is crap and won't print color well, at all. So, I couldn't actually use the cool background that shows up here.

It is the weekend, at this very moment at least. Enjoy yours! I'm going to try to shove all the negative energy that's flying around here under a rug somewhere. Or under the house if it will fit.

Well whatever you ended up doing worked. It looks smashing!

By the way, if you're running a Windows Operating System, the Internet is full of FREE fonts to download.

Negative energy does tend to consume us if we let it.
I think your mixed media art is an excellent way to help you cope with your stress Roban.

I am using Pinterest at the moment for inspiration and beauty. I love pinning other people's photographs, finding encouraging quotes and uploading videos from youtube. I am only on Pinterest for about 10 minutes each day but for that short time I am filled with wonderful positive energy.

Be well my dear friend.
Big heart hugs

I hate those moments of bad energy. Just keep looking for the light. The teenager eventually grows up and moves on!!! Hang tough and these are great words and a wonderful image.

Thanks for the encouragement, Kelly. It's good to hear from someone who's been there!

Roban said...

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try.

I've taken Pintetest slowly. It is a visual treat though, isn't it. I just followed one of Caroline's links to her pin board of browns. Beautiful!

Roban said...

Your banners are always fabulous. I keep mine the same for too long!

Awwww... sorry to hear things are so difficult. Will be thinking of you and hoping that the break for Thanksgiving is just what you all need.
