Up The Mountain

Pictures/previews for this page have been removed due to Designers retiring and stores closing

I was not familiar with this song (by Patty Griffin), until I heard Susan Boyle sing it and it sounded like a pretty good summary of a lot of what 2009 was like, so I figured it would make an excellent intro page to the 2009 album. You know : the ups and the downs : but in there is hope and there is future, fun, happiness!
Jesus never promised us a bed of roses, but He promised to always be with us.

Gypsy Couture (aka LisaMarie) has this wonderful new kit in her store today 'Change of Heart' It has a delicious altered feel to it, something I greatly appreciate.

and here is my page :

I enjoy making altered books in real life, you know with paint and glue and 'stuff' and have been wanting to get into digi altered as I like the idea that stuff don't crawl out of the cupboards threaten to overwhelm me all the time. You know I think I have enough accumulated 'treasures' to keep a group of ladies in supplies for making a project each (hey! maybe that is an idea?) BUT I really don't want to keep on hoarding stuff, now how else will I get to make my fun stuff then? Why digital of course!!! So I'm going to give it a try and see how I make out. I may hate it, I may love it....won't know till I try, right?

It is almost weekend! Have a good one!

I know how you feel and I feel the same way sometimes, *overwhelmed* and not enough time to do all I want. So you do what you can do, when you can do it...and know there are a lot of people that care about you too.
Like me. :)

Lovely lyrics ,btw, I don't know that song.
