Today's post will be a mish mash of tidbits. Before I get started I must say that the logo above isn't mine but I was drawn to it. I then went directly to the source which was The Mobility Hub of Africa. It's a project by Art Moves Africa promoting just about everything Arts and Culture related.
Now...on to what I have been doing and a whole lot more...
First off I will start by saying I attended an 8th Grade Career Day yesterday and that was interesting. I was around 8th graders all day and some of them that stopped by our table were able to record and play back so they could hear what they would or could sound like on the air. (If you are new to my site I should probably tell you that I work in radio full time). 3 of the attendees I was especially happy to see...hubby's cousin's daughter, a friend of ours' son, and a boy who has loved radio since he was 3 and has been in to tour the studios and has dropped by our live broadcast remotes often.
What I'm Watching...
I have been enjoying a lot of memories from my childhood, teen, and college years on Hulu+ and Netflix as of late. I'm currently watching from the beginning A Different World. I remember watching each and every episode when I was younger. It's nice to re-watch them in the evenings when winding down. We don't have Cable, Dish, Local TV, etc...but we do subscribe to both of these streaming services! Do you? If so...what are you currently watching?
What I'm Drinking...
In addition to many 52 Teas I have been sipping I have been getting back into Simpson & Vail's Teas. I'm almost done with my stash of them, tho. I really like their MANY Black Tea offerings. I have also been trying to get into more herbals and you can read about a few of them over at The Sororitea Sisters Website.
Another thing I have been drinking is my morning smoothies! Last week one of my mini goals was to be more consistent and make one each morning Monday Thru Friday. I have been doing pretty good with this attempt with the except of yesterday while I attended the Career Day. Instead I grabbed one of the Bolthouse Farm's Multi-V Goodness bottles I found at a small local grocery store. I was surprised they had it. This was the first time I had tried this flavor and it was really tasty.
What I've Been Listening To...
I often listen to a slew of different types of music. I always find my way back to the 80s and 90s and over the past several months more specifically 90's Dance, New Wave, and Reggae music has been on that list, too.
What I've Been Thinking About For Fun...
Here's a card I did back in 2011! I can't believe it's been 4 years!!! But I have been trying to get back into paper crafting and mixed media once again. As you can see here I did some shading and blending with craft markers. I know I have better example of this somewhere.
And here's another one using the same digital stamp but with paper piecing. If you aren't into paper crafting and aren't familiar with the term paper piecing it's basically using the digital stamp on patterned paper and cutting it out and piecing it on top of the same image to make it more colorful and eye catching. Here are a few Halloween Themed Cards I made and the creator of the Digital Stamp is my ol' buddy Lindsay over at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.
