DOM Week 32...

Can you believe it's week 32 of the year!? In a couple of weeks The Girls will be going back to school and I will not have Nikki to call in the middle of the day to say "hey, whatchya doin'??" But there will be conference calls. At least in the beginning.

Here is my card for this week. The theme is Quiet.


I had just finished up a layout in a circle journal today and had a piece of heavy weight pattern paper left over that was just about the right size. I didn't really know what I was going to do yet so I just started by cutting that paper to size. I had been using foam stamps and paint with the circle journal and also a painting I'm working on so I picked those up and it just worked out.

I try to do all of my DOM cards out of my scrap bins. I don't like to throw paper away, even the tiny pieces, so I try to put them to use on my cards.

This is a picture of the collection of cards all together.


I keep them on a large book and they hang on a hook under my book shelf. I like to flip through them periodically when I put the previous week's card on. I keep the current card on the tiny easel which sits on my work table.

I have a bunch of other things I wanted to post and write about today but Owen took a mini nap this morning so we've got playing to do!

Hi Heather! So glad you left a comment on my blog so I could catch up on your's as well (I need all the reminders I can get!)...unless you have that auto. notice when something new posts but I didn't see it on your blog. Love the cube for your cute sister; Owen is beautiful; your new hair cut is really fab.(you're so lucky to have thick hair!); and love all your inspirational cards/quotes, etc. Have a great day! xo

Your DOM is really getting nice and thick! I have been saving all the prompts to make one of my own - eventually....perhaps when the kids start school!
