It was good in the beginning…

but best now and growing even better each day. What am I talking about? 😀 Well, love… love between me and my gift from heaven aka my hubby. Also the multiplication of my kids: there was one, there were two, there were… five eventually (Love that they’re five rather than one or two or three or four, yeah!). 😀

Oh and yes, this too, this amazing song by Pete Yorn. I first saw it (long ago) on Cathy Zielske’s blog (link, as usual, on the right side) and was completely floored. It was like watching a scrapbook in video form. I don’t know if it’s weird of me to be thinking that way, but everytime I need some inspiration, I watch this video and then the creative juices flow. There’s something about the swirl-like lights and the butterflies and the photo editing and all the effects that make me think “scrapbook! layout!” (Or maybe I’m just a hopeless digital addict? LOL! :D)… And then there’s the music too, of course. I like all kinds of music (except the screaming and the wailing that some people try to pass on as music…not!) I think music makes the world a better place to live in. I love everything from classical to opera to pop to rock… yes, love rock (Pete Yorn’s kind of rock), especially when I need a push…

which I’ve been looking for lately. Or perhaps I should say I’ve been looking for a push in the right direction. I have a million and one things to do, all connected to art in one form or another (thank goodness!), and I need to stop playing and get down to business. Hence my resurrecting this song from my archives… and I am always amazed by it, so I wanted to share it with you, in case you haven’t seen it yet. (Gotta love a guy whose guitar carries the design of a violin, eh? I mean, how cool is that?)

So now, together with this “scrapbook! layout!”-screaming video comes the latest of the freebs: Lavender Porch elements!!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them (took quite some heavy playing around with these… not so easy to make, but fun, fun, fun… especially when creating with you, my dearest friends, in mind!) There are some jumbo elements there, I know (too big? I always prefer downsizing instead of upsizing… but then you knew that already, right? 😉 ) and the background of the preview is a bonus paper thrown in there… don’t know if you’ll like it, but it’s a bonus, so I guess it can’t hurt, huh? 😀

Thanks so much to my friends who take the time to leave such kind and encouraging comments. For those who hesitate, please don’t… :)… even if you have only a “TFS” to key in, that’s good enough for me! (and not too much to ask, I hope?) 😀

Download HERE. Zip password is buttonsup! (Kinda sounds like bottoms-up, eh? hahaha). Enjoy! More to come!
