First off, i want to wish my little man Artoo a very happy 6th Birthday yesterday!! It's so hard to believe that he is six years old already - these past six years have been simultaneously the longest and shortest six years of my life.
|Saying Goodbye to being FIVE|
Then Chewie asked: "What happened to Five Year Old Ozzie?"
and without missing a beat he replied: "He EXPLODED!"
Apparently, five year old Artoo exploded at midnight and 6 year old Artoo was in his place. How awesome to think that when the year ends, the You of the past is gone and a fresh new You is in it's place.
Happy birthday, my incredibly creative little dude.
I don't have many photos to share this week, it was a very draining week for me - mostly because i've been getting up SUPER early to go to the gym before the boys start their day.... like, my class is at 5:30 am so i'm getting up at 4:30 - which i'm told will get easier as it goes along, but lordy, this week was tough for me. I just feel so tired all the time.
the plus side is that i am home from the gym and drinking coffee in time to watch the sun rise.

Okay, so maybe where i live, Mother Nature is not quite sure what to do with herself, and that's okay - but it is the middle of October, and we are full on in the Autumn/Fall season. So this week's challenge is a Leaf/Autumn theme, very reminiscent of Challenge #186
If you live in a part of the world that is heading into spring, maybe you can find some beautiful leafy buds or brilliant greens to find inspiration!
For my tile, i used my very high tech method of drawing leaves - i pick leaves from the ground and lay them on the tile, and then carefully trace the whole darn thing. Works like a charm.
|SOPHISTICATED DRAWING TECHNIQUE! lol|
Have a great week everyone!
