Be Awesome Instead . . .

In the words of Barney Stinson, my motto for this week is "When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story." I've probably told you all that before but it's one of my favorite quotes.

I've taken some unexpected breaks from working this last week and kind of the week before. Got bogged down. Ya know that feeling? Gonna work AND play and focus on the bright side of life this week. Too much going on around here to update you, so I'll just jump right in . . . started this week by goofing off this morning between preparing new images for collage sheets.

The Predicament

I get bored in the organizing and scanning and restoring and extracting. Sometimes just need to goof off. The before and after of The Predicament . . .



Needed to rework an old piece this last week for an upcoming project. It's linked to my flickr where you can find a link to the original too.

AWESOME pieces Marsha! I love how you changed her eyes and the added the fly -- OMG...hilarious!!!!!

And the Dream Police are magnificent "studs"...the first one looking a little uncertain though -- perhaps he's not partial to purple!!!

Love the quote! For me it will have to be..."Instead of being frustrated...be Awesome!"

And now every time I see a policeman I will imagine him like yours!
