Just how GROOVY do you think you are??

21 Oct

One of the design teams I am on is for the If it’s Groovy website.

They have an open Design Team Call.  If you have what it takes…if you are GROOVY enough, you have to check it out!!  Apply and we can be team mates!!  If you apply let Groovy Deb know I sent you over!


I am the FEATURED artist today! (We all get a chance in the spot light)  My post today is about or October Challenge.

Our Leader, Groovy Deb, has the most amazing challenges.  The Challenge this month is called Translations.

We needed to come up with a layout that featured a different language.  Having a mom(I’m lucky enough to have 2…long story there!)  anywho..having a mom who is full Navajo..well..you do the math..that makes me half!!  This year I am glad to say that I got my self enrolled with my tribe and gave them the honor of adding all 7 of my kids to the tribe also!  WHEW!!  Yep the Navajo Nation is up by 7, at least, this year thanks to me!

For this page, all my Titles are in Navajo.  I had to consult my mom and cousins on the spelling.  I hope you enjoy the page.



The journaling on it says:



House of the Dark Cliffs People


I feel very honored to be Native American.  In 2004, my husband, all my children and I went to Ganado, Arizona, where my grandmother lives.  It was my first trip to the reservation and it was a humbling experience.

Do I feel sad that I was not raised on the reservation?

Maybe, but it doesn’t matter because I wouldn’t change the outcome of my life for anything.

I am blessed to have 2 families, the family that raised me and that family that is my blood, my clan.

I am Jeannie DeGruccio and I am Tséníjíkiní.



That is all for today!  But remember, if you have thought at all about being part of a fun team..check out If it’s Groovy’s Design Team call.
