My Journal Monday–Week 29

I’ve been out for a while–dealing with family, work and life in general.  I’ve finally had a little break in the clouds and took some time to feed my creative side.  I am doing a journal swap with a fine group of ladies I met a retreat a few years ago.  We have stayed in […]

T Stands For Tranquility

Today is T Stands For Tuesday posting day.  If you remember last week’s post, I was having a bit of busy week…  I finished that project and closed another one yesterday so last night it was time to wind down and relax for a short while.  I grabbed this week’s Zentangle challenge from The Diva […]

Still Tangled Up In the New Year

I am still working on the journal spread that I began around New Year’s.  I wanted to include some Zentangle so I did all the numbers for the new year in a Zentagle fashion.  However, when the new post on the Diva’s Weekly Challenge came up, the challenge entailed something completely different.  So, I attempted to […]

Paint Party Friday!

Sunday Words & My Journal Monday–Week 7

Job 28:20-21 This is what is on my desk this morning in my journal and it is also getting posted to Art Every Day Month.  I have been so upset by the events that took place in Paris on Friday late afternoon/evening (US EST).  My feelings run deep and for numerous reasons–this platform is probably not […]

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 […]
