don't you love it when you stumble across something or someone you feel an instant connection to?
i found some charming treasures today online with which i had that feeling.
but first, a little history lesson...
back when the freestyle book
came out, i was really excited...
and then (*gasp*
) a little wee
when i got the book.
(yes, there are cracks and fissions occuring all over the magical kingdom of Scrapbookland as i type this)
it had NOTHING to do with the incredible artists inside... more with what my understand of freestyle
i've discovered although i love the concept
of freestyle, i myself cannot do it. i need more structure... i need to see design. and that's ok- that's freestyle coming full circle, isn't it? doing what is comfortable for me
anyways, my weird scrapbook philosophies aside, while i admired all the ladies in the freestyle book, i felt a c o n n e c t i o n with Brenda Mae Teo.
yes, her layouts were freestyle, but i feel like she sneaked a little structure in there as well. ;)
but what i mainly loved
about her was the spiritual significance
of a lot of her layouts.
and today, i stumbled across her blog
and her twopeas gallery
. i am soooo incredibly inspired.
it's started some sparking in my wee brain cells that has inspired something for my October classes at Scrap Etc.
Sneak Peeks To Appear Soon!
Back to the original intent of this post, so yeah... felt a connection with her immediately. Am LOVIN' her blog and her work.
and some of this links i discovered on her blog.

Ok, now I feel like a strange stalker lady. I promise I'm not. Well, other than blog stalking. LOL
