There’s A Pattern Here

Hubby fixed some comfort food for dinner and we sat down in the living room and spend some quality time together after both of us had a very demanding week at our jobs.  I decided that for this week, taking Friday off and getting some extra nap time in would go a long way toward […]

Creative Every Day

I did some creative writing at work today and got REALLY creative solving a potential challenge but I had more fun after I came home.  I played with layers and I think if it hadn’t been PAST time for me to go to bed that I would still be in the studio layering away! This […]

My Journal Monday–Week 5

It was a BUSY weekend!  I worked really hard on the journal page that I posted on this week’s Sunday Words spot.  Because of that I don’t have very much exciting on my desk to show for my efforts.  This is what is on my desk this morning in my journal: I know.  Really exciting, right?  Hopefully it […]

My Journal Monday–Week 4

Well, here it is Monday again already.  This is what is on my desk this week in my journal: Obviously a work in progress but I’m pretty pleased with it already.  This past week I have been “out of pocket” due to a very intense week at work but all that is over–and I slept […]

My Journal Monday–Week 3

I have participated in several blog challenges or participation posts on several other blogs.  I thought it might be fun to try one myself.  In some of my research in finding a good “linky” tool, I discovered that the WordPress.com platform does not support linky code.  Therefore, you have to do a “link to a […]

Art It Friday–Show Your Face! — No. 2

Kim Dellow over on her blog has a fun thing going called Art It Friday – Show Your Face.  I discovered it while browsing some linked blog pages on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s regular Friday post Art Journal Everyday post which she also posts regularly every Friday. I want to get better at sketching portraits so this is a good challenge for me to […]

Keep It Simple

Sometimes simplicity is best.  Just a “brush cleaning” background in my Moleskin journal and a stamp from Dina Wakley.  I added some lines and she had a torso and a twist in her personality.  She turned out to be a little on the “healthy” side but aren’t some of us?  A nice alternative to all […]
