Aug. 15th, Prompt #28

YES!! I have to say, I LOVE the diversity of what the design team comes up with every month!! This month is NO exception!! Our challenge this month, is definitely a gutter moment challenge. It's all the things that you COULD take THERE... and I love to see how everyone DID take it...
Eat Me
32 Flavors and Then Some by Ani Difranco
Nutrition Label/Food Packaging
Here's what the gals came up with!

My inspiration for this is pure frustration and anger at all the BS going on at work. I REALLY needed to vent and some of the song lyrics and the "EAT ME" prompt so worked! I won't bore with alllll the journaling but I do feel kinda better now LOL!





So I was feeling a little stumped with this one. I wanted to use the Eat Me part of the prompt, but nothing was coming to me. Then the words to the song didn't totally give me an idea either. I decided I'd do the song and then decided on this pic of my with my Dick Head Hoopla penis on my head and a show on HBO about the Bunny Ranch and sex toys was on and knew right then exactly what this lo was about. We all need a PSD right? lol And they come in so many 'flavors'! Gotta a favorite?


I didn't have a chance to actually CREATE something for this challenge, but I just wanted to say something about what I WANTED to create....
I love the lyrics to this song... so empowering... that I can be all the THINGS and flavors of myself that I WANT to be, no matter what the nay sayers think or do... that I am not between anyone and what THEY want to be. That I am damned if I do, and damned if I don't, and so if that's the case... everyone can eat me. I will BE who I want to be. DO what I want to do. SAY what I want to say. FEEL how I want to feel... because in the end, only I know my true flavors... and without the salt of my personality, I am nothing.
and our GUEST GUTTER GIRL: April

The journaling on the cookie reads: Who do you think she'd rather live with, her _____( something close to successful, can't remember which word he used exactly) father or her welfare mother. You are never going to make something out of yourself.

These are two comments that both of my baby daddies said to me when my kids were little. The first one was just tired of giving me money and wanted me to quit school and go to work. He thought I'd be on welfare forever. The other one was always threatening to take custody of my daughter and give her a better life than I guess he thought I would give her. Funny thing is that he was living with me and I was pretty much supporting him! Yeah........

As a reminder!! We've changed the way our months work here, so anything you post between the 30th of last month, and the 29th of this month will put you in our random drawing for our PRIZE from my very OWN shop, Do Over's Vintage Boutique this month,

and for a hand picked spot as our guest GutterGirl on the 15th of next month!! Winners of both are announced on the 30th of each month, in our End of the Month MOJO post!!
