My friend Lisa, from Belise On Paper, and I have decided to keep life interesting by creating a new blog challenge called Point of Departure or P.O.D. Every month we will pick a theme and each of us will find and image of that theme. The image is the point of departure. We swap images and then we each have to create something with it. January's theme is Jewellery. There being only afew days left I had to get it done quickly. I happen to know that Lisa hasn't started hers. hehehe.
So here is my altered jewellery piece. Hope you like it. Be sure to log on next month, (and hopefully before then)! The theme for February is "Home".

If you read my post from January 21st, you may have gathered that it's rather grey in this part of the world right now. My husband says we're all suffering from a lack of vitamin D. Whatever it is, it seems to be increasing my ability to worry. I am an expert worrier. I can worry about anything. Last night I woke up at 3 a.m. wondering...what if my husband had a heart attack, hmm... what if I had a heart attack...what if the children had heart attacks! I'm giving myself a heart attack thinking about heart attacks! Amazingly enough I got back to sleep........the sky is bright and blue the air is warm. There's a wonderful cooling breeze blowing off the ocean as I stroll down the boardwalk. The sun is shining and all these magical food vendors are lined up selling fabulous exotic delicacies! I can smell the aromas, so can the gulls who are circling overhead. I can hardly decide what type of food I should buy. Finally, near the end of the board walk, I see a booth that sells fresh brewed organic coffee and fifty types of chocolate chip cookies! Oh!!! I go over and get some coffee while the vendor starts explaining about all the types of chocolate chip cookies...white chocolate, macadamia nut, truffle chunk, pistachio, AND Peprez Pepper. "Peprez Pepper?", I ask. "Yes, it's from Mexico!" Wow! I pick the "peprez pepper" chocolate chip cookie. I taste my first bite! Sweet, peppery, crunchy, chocolately, delicious....BUZZZZZZZZ
My Alarm! I have to drive my husband to the early train! But but but... I want more of my peprez pepper cookie!!!! Oh well, at least I had a little vacation, if only in my dreams. I've been thinking about peprez pepper all day. I don't know what it is, but I want some!
P.S. The collage made from the doodle above is in my shop!
