Feeling Creative

Wow, it's been a while. Life has been pretty busy and crazy. Started getting our house ready to sell (Mar), Hubby broke is clavicle (Apr), and he graduated from college (May). We moved (May), I started a new job (Jun), and now things are finally starting to settle down.

Only for us to move again in October.

I will focus on that later. Lately I have finally felt like I have had time to be creative. That I try to not be on the computer after Emma is in bed so that I can start to unwind and go to bed myself at a decent time.

Anyway, I have been busy slapping paint, glue and paper together. Yes, I call it art. It works for me. Here are some pictures:

The front is still pretty plain. 

First spread, made a while ago.

This is how this journal started out- as a way to coral all the things I liked in the various magazines I had laying around. 

Then I started doodling. 

Which led to painting and gluing

and more painting and gluing, 

and then more still. 

This was daily journaling, which I enjoyed, but I think I need a separate book for that. 

So, that is where I am at and what I have been up too. Hope all is well with you!


  1. I love your crafty journals. You have a great "eye" for it.
    It was good seeing you again.

  2. Thanks! We had a great time visiting!

  3. oh how lovely, that is something I have never been able to do, just art just because. So free and pretty. Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Joyce,
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Once you start making art just because, it becomes a fun and relaxing habit. Thanks for the compliments!


I love to read your comments, makes me feel good to know that people are reading my stuff!
