My friend had a great idea to each create travel journals and swap each month. This is travel journal #3. The last one was so full that the back cover fell off. I recommend this idea to anyone that is separated by distance from their close friends. I feel like it has kept us connected in ways that email, texting, or phone calls never would have & we have keepsakes for years to come.

I love when I go into my art room with no plan and just start working in my art journal. That's what I did with this journal entry. The finished product is a little crazy, but when I look back at my old journals I see symbolism or notice things that I didn't see at the time so give it a try have no plan and just start creating & see what happens!

For Valentine's Day, I can't think of anything more fitting to blog about than my daughter goofing around before she attended her 8th grade Valentine's dance. She said, "I'm so excited and nervous at the same time". Hope your Valentine's is as exciting as it was for my 8th grader:)

I have been struggling to find the time, energy, and inspiration to work in my art journal. I went to a new coffee shop yesterday, happen to find it by chance. Enclosed in the coffee shop was some amazing art. Art items from papayaart.com were all through the store (including Sabrina Ward Harrison bag). I left feeling so inspired. I found this card with a great quote on it, "Behind all this, some great happiness is hiding". I hope this is true with all the changes that are coming this year.
