Feeling a bit "Daffy"

     Can you tell from my inchies I was part of the Saturday morning cartoon generation?  Those good old cartoons that made you roll in silly giggles.  No heavy ecological lessons or such, just laughing.  Note I did not say violence, because I did enjoy the Roadrunner cartoons and honestly I kept pulling for that poor Coyote!  But for those of you who aren't familiar with Daffy Duck or just want to have a chuckle, check out this link - Daffy Duck cartoons.  Here is my inchie to go with the cartoon -
     Actually most of the week, I seemed to have the same expression on my face as Daffy did!  Kind of a "how do I get this group ready for state testing ???" look.
     Made by Joey's challenge was the letter J.  I used the tangles jellyroll, jubel, and jambalee.  I also used some glittery gel pens because . . . well, no reason, they were pretty!
    Diva's challenge was to use the tangle amphora.  I was not very familiar with that one.  I wish I had been able to keep the movement I was looking for  but place the rows closer together.  Oh well, it turned out pretty good. 
     Friday was an emotional day.  It was time for our principal to bring around our forms to fill out for our "intent" for next year.  My intent is to sleep late, and create for hours.  That wasn't on the form.  So instead I had to mark I wouldn't be back and also write a letter of resignation.  Oh my.  I (probably foolishly) cried as I wrote.  I am a person who does not like change of any sort, even the good ones.  So this was a milestone for me.  One would think I am not happy, I truly am.  I am just uneasy. 
     We had a beautiful week, weather wise.  Temperatures in the low seventies and sixties.  Pleasant weather.  I stress this because tonight it is predicted we will get 1-3 inches of . . .s . . . n . . . o . . . w.  I cannot believe it.  Surely someone is wrong.  Now, I really did want one beautiful, "go outside and play" snow before winter was over.  I did.  But now that the flowers are blooming and I am not having to wear a coat, come on spring!  What is this snow word creeping into the scene??!!
      Thank you for dropping by and I love your comments!  Pretty soon, I will have time to comment on posts too!  Just you wait, you will get tired of my posts!  Hugs!

  5. Big changes are always emotional, that's OK! I like your cartoon a lot and Amphora is very pretty.

  7. Daffy is so cute, and the Amphora looks great separated into flowing lines this way! Anticipation of change is always hard. Just wait though and you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner!
