Milford Sound in New Zealand

I am tired, tired, tired on this Monday, but working today and tomorrow and then a nice trip home to New Jersey for Thanksgiving.  I can't wait for Tuesday afternoon :) Hope you all have nice plans for the holidays! 

I accidentally got to buying myself a few presents while doing the Christmas shopping for other people.  Ha! Sounds like me! But I am thoroughly in love with my three new purchases:

-a lovely

infinity scarf

from the lovely target (isn't the color fabulous?!)-

-a beautiful turquoise (eek!)  Lauren Conrad (actually love her line!)



-the perfect

feather earrings

I've been searching for forever from Target-

Anyway, I have something to share with you all that I am very excited about because it's something I pinned a long time ago and have been meaning to try -- yep, I finally tried :) 

This was the initial


that I had come across.  It's a drawing on different layers of vellum.  Cool, right? I just bought a pack of metallic markers and I was excited to try them out, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity.  I knew too that with my scanner (double lens scanner for film) that I could do some pretty cool things.  I of course did an ocean scene!  Let me know what you think.  This is definitely going to be something I'll be experimenting with more. 

Hope everyone has a fantastic Monday! 

Man, I'm tired.
