The new book everyone is talking about.

world of artist

I pre-orderd this book because I don’t always want to see how artists make their journal pages…I just want to see their pages sometimes. It’s like I can peer between the covers of THEIR journals and get inspired by the fact that there seem to be infinite possibilities for pages to make.

Even if I can’t draw.

I have no ambition to get any of my pages into a book someday. I just play. And playing makes me happy.

That is SO enough for me – but this is a very good book.

1000 pages

I have the first one too. Love them both…

What am I?

Posted on Updated on

I’m not a professional blogger, or an Artist, or a Lawyer.
I’m a Librarian, Y’all!

I AM, however, trying to figure out how to make this little endeavor all spiffy and add the badge-y links to my favorite blogs on the side of my page like other folks do.

Meh…maybe I’ll figure it out, maybe I won’t…

Coloring makes me happy

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes just coloring pictures is enough to keep me happy.  Deciding what color to put next another is about the extent of my ambition at times.


It’s almost a meditation sometimes…like I say, “Whatever keeps me from stabbing folks in the eye.”


I work in a very drab environment so I am not surprised that my home is increasingly colorful.

School’s out for summer?

So…my Brother is on break from school and my best friend is taking an oil painting class (where he doesn’t need my help to edit anything!) so I’m actually not doing homework for a bit. I seriously don’t know how to act…

Oh! I know! I’ll work on some art journaling! Heh.

Actually, I have been working on some pages for Journal 52 and will post them as soon as they’re dry (!) Trying to catch up is interesting, especially since I HAVE made beginnings on a few weekly themes (Creative Hands[18], Mandala [21], Party Animals [15]) and NOW I have time to finish some things. Oh! that does sound nice…”finishing something”. I don’t know about y’all but I have so many works in progress laying around, I’M not too surprised that the possibilities get a bit overwhelming at times.

Anywho…there’s more to come…in COLOR!

Worth fixing or get a new one?

Posted on Updated on

So…It will cost $40 to get my sewing machine serviced, but I can get a brand new one for $80 or less and sell the old one at the yard sale my neighbor and I are having next Saturday.

While I am generally one for using what I have rather than chucking it for the new hotness, I wonder what would be the best choice for me here.

What do YOU think?
