We all need it right? Some of us just need therapy, lol! I am so honored to be the Guest Designer this week for the Creative Therapy Challenge Blog http://creativetherapy.wordpress.com/2009/04/25/catalyst-fifty-nine/
Now this is not your normal challenge blog. This site makes you think. It really is about therapy and finding that inner artist inside. When Karen, the founder of this awesome site, asked me to be a guest designer I was floored. You should see the ladies who have been guest designers there! No way am I in the same caliber as they are. Alas, though, there I am this week as a guest designer. Thank you Karen for choosing me to grace your site. It is a wonderful and meaningful site. I hope that others find this hidden jewel out there, because it is truly a wonderful place indeed with wonderful talented artists as well.
Catalyist No. 59 "Apologize to Someone"
I made an "Apology Box". My Journaling reads:
I apologize to myself for – never loving my self to make a difference in my life in the areas where needed.
I apologize to myself for – letting others in my past take advantage of me or abuse me.
I apologize to myself for – giving up and not pushing myself harder in areas I needed to work on.
I apologize to myself for – the times that I have been preoccupied and didn’t want to participate with others in my family. I have hurt not only them but myself as well.
I apologize to myself for – being critical or unbelieving of my self worth or talents.
I apologize to myself for – waiting so long to become a mother because I thought I would be the mother my own mother was. I was so wrong.
I apologize to myself for – keeping all the pain and hurt inside when I was younger. I should have shared it with someone.

Ok, so of my friends laughed at me when I said I did a photo shoot with my cat, Yankee. Believe me just like any stubborn teen, sometimes he was cooperative and other times not. Ahh, the beauty of digital cameras - you can just delete those bad pics that somehow slipped in there. I think our little photo shoot went rather well. Don't you? Here is my beautiful "boy", and yes, he does get called a girl all the time (cuz he's so pretty).
Oh, and p.s. I have a little good news for me that I will share tomorrow. :)

CHALLENGE: Come on, "cut in out" before you "bling" me up Scotty!
I am challenging you to do cut work on your lo's. I have added the optional twist of adding bling to your lo's as well. If I like what I see, and I pick you as the winner, you'll get a nice little rak from me! Believe me, I'm a shopper. I have a lot of stuff I can never ever use. Come play a long at http://www.amillionmemories.com/

http://www.dreamgirlschallengeblog.blogspot.com/ Our challenge was to use a quote from a movie and chipboard. Mine is from the movie "Jerry McGuire". This quote is when Tom Cruise and the little boy are having a "who knows more" battle.
When Hayden was two he started wearing glasses. I also had his hair spiked, which I still do from time to time. Almost "every time" I do it, and we are out in public, someone will stop me and say "you know, he looks just like that little boy in Jerry McGuire". I have to agree he does, but he is still my little Hayden!
Hope you enjoy my lo, and I hope you come on over to play along for an awesome prize.

Ok - I really have a good excuse!! My MIL was in town for 12 DAYS!! Yes, I survived. However, she tattled on me about everything I did to my husband. I couldn't scrapbook, or play on the computer like I normally would!
