**For my November giveaway, please go HERE**
Good morning my dear scrappy friends~! I hope you are well :). I have a busy post for you this morning, so we best get to it. I'm going to announce both the winner of my October Giveaway, as well as the BONUS winner~ but because I love to make you wait it out, first I'm going to share a project with you that I created just a couple days ago.
Do you ever have those days where all of your problems and all the things that you've been trying to ignore just seem to come crashing down on you?? Well, last Friday I had one of those days. One of those days where the realization that no matter WHAT you do, it just ISN'T enough...slams into you like a train. I really had a BAD day...and I just felt like I NEEDED to create something, just to get through it. I hopped on the internet to find a sketch and discovered that the beautiful and talented Steph Devlin was this month's creator of the Prima BAP. I loved it immediately and the new Spring/Summer/Winter/Fall challenge at Bird is the Word spoke to me as well...but not in a traditional "seasonal" way. For some reason, the title "Fallen" just seemed to strike me as the word for what I was going through. Maybe that sounds stupid...but I can't explain it. I was feeling dark, dismayed, hurt...I felt like a fallen soul. So I carelessly cropped a terrible picture of myself and was like "okay, let's go"...
And honestly, I still don't know what to think of this one. I'm much more positive now than I was a couple of days ago...so I guess I look at it a little differently. At the time, I wasn't worried much about design or...anything, really! But now there are a couple things that don't sit too well...but that's okay!
Here's a look:

I guess sometimes you've gotta create to help you through something...and for me, just writing down my realizations was simply therapeutic. :)
