Creative chemistry 102


As a Ranger Educator or Rangerette as we called ourselves during Ranger U, I love all things Ranger and Tim of course! 
He has to be one of the most sharing people I know! I mean seriously!

I actually missed creative chemistry week but I registered today, you can register anytime you want and I highly recommend you do if you haven't already!
So seeing my back is still out due to being a bit enthusiastic with unpacking boxes on Monday, I thought it would be a great time to watch all the CC102 videos in one go and I did!
So I've had a Tim overload today lol and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Of course I had to order some things! I still didn't have any Distress Glitter and that was high on my wish list along with a 'few' other things...

I can't wait until my art room is finished so I can actually sit down and create, at the moment my table is full of things that still need to find a place. I hope my back allows me to clear it all this weekend cause I really want to play and get dirty hands.

The Rusty Angel in me is ready to go!

See you soon
Love & peace

New beginnings!

I've been away a long time and it was high time I restarted my blog! So here goes.

A lot of things have been going on in my life, breast cancer, as some of you already know. Well after all the treatment and a year of reconstructive surgeries I was left exhausted, unmotivated and with no desire to make much art. It was a sad dark place to be but I had to get through it.
I'm not totally there yet but I can feel the butterflies if inspiration fluttering through me and now that I have all my art supplies back I feel ready to get paint and ink moving again.

Oh yeah, I made the big move from Belgium to the US.
Living in South Carolina is challenging and new and different and does take some getting used to but it is also inspiring and beautiful.

Last week we finally received all our household goods after a nine week wait!!! Military moves don't go very fast!!!. So I'm slowly but surely getting my art room ready, still loads to unpack, I think we are almost halfway through the 370 boxes that are packed up to the ceiling!

It is exciting to open the boxes with my art supplies, I'm like a kid on Xmas morning! Lots of ohhhhs and aaahhhhs when I rediscover my inks and paints and paper and canvas and and every single piece of treasure.

I hope you start my new life with me and follow me on my new journey, I should say y'all really lol
So Y'all come back soon to see my art and follow my life as a Belgian Brit in South Carolina!
Love & peace
