Probably the weather impacting my mood. Club Scrap’s PSL season is over, and so is my leading of the Cotton Candies and Gumball teams. It was a heck of a good time and kept me distracted pretty well. I used the new digital kit from CS – Dashing for this design, and the sentiment was created by Paulette at Create With TLC. It’s been raining all day and it’s supposed to stay rainy through Thursday. Lord knows we need it here with all the wild fires, but the gray weather is sort of bringing me down. It’s perfect for snuggling up with a movie and someone to watch it with.

by a tweet yesterday from one of my favorite musical artists. BT (Brian Transeau) is an EDM genius, phenomenal artist. Modern-day philosopher. Something he posted to twitter yesterday (after I had already done my quote of the day page) struck me and stuck with me. So thank you BT, for all your inspiration and comfort, though you don’t know me you have been there through good times and bad for me. When things went south a few months ago for me, I never thought I’d be able to listen to your music again because of memories – painful and ecstatic. The depth of your work inspires me to be a better me.

This was actually given as a Christmas gift to someone who is – to say the least – a Dr. Pepper fanatic. His also received a 6′ tall display football player made of Dr. Pepper cartons. I collected some antique Dr. Pepper bottles and caps, and found this awesome vintage Dr. Pepper crate on ebay. To get an inkling of his Dr. Pepper paraphernalia addiction – he wants to do his office in a Dr. Pepper theme, complete with a vintage neon Dr. Pepper clock.
To give the wall art a little more “oompf” than just old bottles sideways in a crate, I got a reproduction pocket mirror from the 1960s and printed high-resolution Dr. Pepper clip art (from Dr. Pepper’s site). I distressed and inked the vintage postcards that I’d reprinted, and turned them, and some Club Scrap cardstock into coordinating rosettes, capped with the vintage bottle toppers. There’s still enough space inside the crate for a few more memorabilia pieces.
