Art Journal page and the the singer who inspired it

"Spend most your life
pretending not be
the one you are but who
you choose to see
Learned to survive in your fictious world
Does what they think of you
Determine your worth
If specials what you feel
when you're with them
Taken away you feel less than again" You by Janet Jackson

I play this song it's from The Velvet Rope one of my favorite albums by Janet Jackson
because I felt like she hit her stride artistically speaking
Actually it's kinda ironic that later in her career she was going to have to
experience being reviled by the media and some in the public
about that Superbowl incident. But the thing I admire the most
and encourages me to keep trying and take the chance of falling on my face
is because Janet never just quit doing what she does not even after the death of her beloved brother Michael. It takes a certain amount
of tenacity to do that . So inpires you to keep doing your scrapbook/art journal pages? If you could spend the afternoon
with someone you admire who would it be? Well until the next post

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from. I am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
