I could be doing laundry…

but instead I am art journaling. Once I sit down at my desk I can’t seem to get up and go do boring chores. It feels good to create, just for the joy of it.

My daydreams almost always revolve around travel. I want to go so many places!


Two spreads for international journal swap


As I have shared before, I am participating in an art journal swap.  There are five of us women in all; myself from the USA, one from UK, one from Poland, and two from Russia.  These two spreads are now in Margaret’s journal, it’s ready to head to Irina in Russia for her additions.  Thanks for looking an as always I welcome feedback and ideas!

Well, one day last week I was having a very rare moment of negative emotions…rather than continue to be ugly too someone I love I decided to make these two pages.

Then you also see a spread I did inspired by a wonderful date night with my honey. It couldn’t have been better…weather was PERFECT, sat by the World’s Fair Pavilion fountain and had a delicious picnic and wine. Then we went on to enjoy a delightful evening at The Muny. West Side Story has always been a fave!

So…it has been said that I attract all things-human and furry-within a 100 mile radius, that are injured or lost. This weekend was no exception. I surrender…it’s who I am…I can’t change it…and wouldn’t want to.

These pages in my “me me me” journal were inspired by this weekend’s events.

PS this is the reason people should keep their dogs leashed or in their own yards…some of us really, really like the wildlife in our own yards.
