Senior Moments.....

All images by the fabulousTumblefish Studio at deviantscrap.com

Another page in my art journal, this time about the moments that we all have (you do have them too don't you?) you know, when you set off up the stairs for something and then can't remember what it was ..... or you go to phone someone and then can't remember what it was you were phoning for. Sometimes it's not even that - it's just the fact that you can't quite think straight .......

I love the image of these sullen faced boys. The 'ears' were the wings of a dragonfly which I cut in half and added behind their heads to make 'bunny ears'!

And here- just to show you that close up my work is really not all that neat (!)- are my hand drawn daisy type flowers.


At the end of this week I return to my part time hours at work *big smile*. I'm looking forward to a bit more creative time as well as time to leisurely peruse blogland rather than snatching a few rushed moments here and there.

Bye for now .....

  2. I LOVE this!! Especially the daisies...very cute indeed. Can completely relate to the Senior Moments experiences (although I do prefer the term Blonde Moments even though I am no longer blonde...) Going to the supermarket for a couple of things and getting everything EXCEPT the items I went in for, walking to the wrong car park on the opposite side of town and spending 20 minutes looking for the car, running through all the kids names before I get the right one (MollyJamesHarry...Ellie!!) and realising I'm still wearing my slippers on the school run...all in the last week. Worrying really - I'm only mid 30's!!

  9. ahh..that's wonderful....you'll have more time on your hands to create...and remember things!

    yes, we all have those senior moments...even in our thirties! it happens to me when I've not much going on....it's funny, but when I'm super busy..i seem to be more in control and on top of every little thing!

    go figure...you'd think it would be the other way around, non? lol

    and the dragonfly ears../wings! brilliantly whimsical..

  12. Those bunny/dragonfly ears are killer!!! You always come up with the most creative ideas, Kate! Ahhhhh . . . yes! Unfortunately I can relate to loosing part of my mind. Regarding my mind, my beloved son is always kidding me by saying that, "You have to have it in the first place in order to loose it, Mom!" Hugs, Terri xoxo

  14. I love your page Kate it so represents a lot of us although I would have thought you were too young to have Senior moments. I had one this week, left my mobile in the pocket of my jeans and washed them in the washing machine, so it cost me too as I had to buy a new phone. I think I may journal about that. Did you book for Dina, I did all 3 days yipee.

  24. They look how I feel today - some how at odds with everything!
    I have to keep a constant check that my thinking doesn't go off at a tangent - it's boring staying on the stright and narrow.
    Fully understand the senior moments too.

  28. No you DEFINITELY aren't alone! Not sure if you're old enough to suffer from menopausal brain death like me, but can't recommend it. I used to be quite clever but that's a distant memory ...
    I always love your pages and this one made me smile, especially the daisies.
