Art Journaling at Retreat...


I am in Orlando enjoying some girl time with my art friends this weekend!  We visited the Farmer's Market earlier today to purchase edibles for our home cooked meal and have spent the rest of the day creating in the studio.  I had a hard time feeling inspired, which happens from time-to-time but I finally just started applying paint to the pages and adding paper scraps and things began to evolve. Here is what I have so far!  Not sure if I will actually finish these pages this weekend but I will post my progress so check back.

Have a  blessed day!

I'm Working On This...

I was inspired this past weekend by a post on the Journal Girl blog!  Kira arrived at the studio to find a note left for her by an artist friend. It was on her art table and simply asked: "What are you working on?"  I am responding to that with this post.  I don't often "show" myself working in the studio deep in the process of creating. I am back to working more faithfully in my art journals.  It gives me a place to design and develop ideas for future projects and this day was a good day.  So, some insight...the things that aren't so obvious:

•I watched/listened to the maraton run of The Librarian while I worked.

•It was pouring rain all day and I felt super cozy inside the studio.

•I ate boiled peanut hummus for a snack.


What are you working on right now?

For Me @ Twenty-One...


If you could tell yourself something at twenty-one what would it be? What advice would you give? What knowledge would you share?  I was asked to do just that for an on-going project.  Be sure to check out A Journey in Hindsight: At Twenty-One for more details.

I also want to thank everyone who joined me at 21 Secrets Live last night while I created this page. It was fun and I appreciate your questions and kind words!

Have a  blessed day!

I love Mary Freeman's art journals!  Her pages are bright and vibrant and full of emotion.  I also really like her handwriting.  Mary used my Art Pops™ cards in several creative ways.  Check out her blog HERE for more inspirations!

Anke Kramer created a lovely card and layout with the Art Pops™ cards. I like the softness of her layers and how well the pops of color fit nicely with her style! Check out her blog HERE for more photos!

Friday Fill-Ins & an Art Pops™ Peek... we go!

1. In November, I most look forward to visiting my family at Thanksgiving, which is one of my favorite holidays.

2. My nephew scored his first touchdown yesterday and I am excited for him!

3. It's right there, in the pile.

4. Having the house alarm set at night gives me some peace of mind.

5. Water is one of the most amazing things in nature, at least as far as I'm concerned.

6. Pop is what my grandmother used to call any kind of soft drink!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to bag party with Sandi to package all these Art Pops™, tomorrow my plans include releasing my new product line called Art Pops™ and Sunday, I want to workship with my church family!



Today is the last day I will tease you!  My new Art Pops™ will be available tomorrow.  Check back tomorrow for all the details!
