Summer 04

Here are a couple more pages I created. My printer actually was acting up and did not print the pictures properly so I decided to work with it and this is what I came up with. I was really happy with the results. I like a challenge, makes you push yourself. (again with the rotated pic, no idea)

Another of my passions!

hmmmm.......not sure why, but every time I upload this pic it rotates, oh well O.o This is another of the things/hobbies I have and do when I have the time or am feeling inspired, so not enough. I do really like to scrap book and find it to be a good creative release, an expensive one, but the results are well worth it. This is one of the first pages I made, not to bad, very simple, but could be improved. It is my son in 2003. Time does fly.

Henna-1st time

Well adventurous me decided to buy some henna powder and be creative. I ended up decorating myself and all the kids. Let me tell you, it is not as easy as it looks. The paste needs to be the right consistency and the hole in the applicator the right size. Me and my big ideas...hehe. Nope it was actually a load a fun. Here are some of the pics, the boys had cats, dogs and spiders....of
course. And I tried to do something more traditional on the girls and myself. The 2 darker pics are with the paste still on and the others after it has been taken off. Not to bad for my first attempt, if I do say so.

My next tattoo

Ok, here is a sketch of the tat I want on my lower back. I want it to look like henna, so it would be inked in a reddish brown colour. I the middle of the lotus would be the word "knowledge", I think in sanskrit. In the other two circles would be the words "life" and "peace". It is still not finished though, I may still play with the placement of all the elements and add a some more details.

The Heart

The heart is so delicate and fragile.
Yet we are so willing to give it away.
Willing to take the chance on all that pain and hurt?
Is it because this is what we
are destine to - hurt and sorrow?
Or do we really believe in love
and happiness?
Why does love have to hurt so much.
When we are in love it hurts but
the pain is a pleasant sorrow.
When we are breaking up with
the one we love it is yet another kind of hurt,
one which is of relief, confusion and guilt.
And yet when we are alone
we yearn for that special someone.
Yes we are all destine to give ourself away,
to take the risk of a broken heart,
all in the name of love.


sometimes I need a place to hide
away from the busy, hurried world
where I can go to be alone
to think
to dream
to cry
where I can open up
to feel secure
and find peace all my own
where I can smile at simple, little things
knowing no one can ever find me.

You're my one and only love
and this I want you to know.
You mean more to me than anything,
I don't ever want you to go.
Loving you gives me happiness,
the kind I need each day.
And if sometimes I don't show it,
I love in each and every way.
If sometimes I get jealous,
it's only because I care.
The love I feel for you
is ever so rare.
If I could have one wish
do you know what it would be?
For us to be together
for all eternity.
