Simple Halloween

Happy Friday!  Sorry it's been so long since I posted, I'm having a bit of a "early thirties crisis", and am having trouble focusing and getting things organized.  It's not nearly as awful as it sounds really.   I've been doing a lot of reading in the past 2 months (oh my, has it only been 2 months?) and I'm totally amazed at the things that I am discovering about who I am and who I always wanted to be.

I don't think it's a secret among my close friends that married with kids working a desk job is exactly where I always said I would never be.  That took a few years to discover...but discovering what I'm passionate about is a whole new journey.  And, I have to say that I am surprised at how reading has helped me to start to uncover who I am and who I want to be.
You're probably wondering what the heck I'm reading.  Well, I'm not ashamed to same that I'm reading Twilight Fan Fiction.  Go ahead, say it....WHAT?  There is a whole website where people submit their stories with the same characters as Twilight but the stories are totally different. It's more about the stories I'm reading that about Twilight.  This site is monitored by editors and only projects deemed "good enough" get in, so I'm guaranteed some quality in the writing and story lines.   I really enjoy the one's where everyone is human, so totally not like Twilight.  Anyway, the more I read, the more I want to write.  I have a story line playing around in my head, but I haven't had the opportunity to write it down.

But, how do I add writing to my current list of things to do?  Lord only knows!  For now, it's going down on my list of "Things To do" along with learning to play the piano, taking singing lessons, acting in a play (in front of an audience) and taking a vacation alone with the hubby.  Whew!  If you read this far, I hope I haven't scared you off.  I think we're all a work in progress and today I feel like I've been making some forward progress this week, so I wanted to share.

And, I have a card to share too.  This simple Halloween card used Frightful Halloween from the The Rubber Cafe.  The paper is from Making Memories.  I use some Bazzill Cardstock that came with the scallopped edge.  Great stuff.  If you're still with me, thanks for reading.  I hope you have a great day!
