I just wanted to share some art journaling goodness with you all:-) I was thrilled to get my contributor copy of Art Journaling magazine and find me work on the cove! It totally caught me by surprise. As most of you know, I love art journaling and it’s my go to vehicle to teach workshops. They are such a valuable tool for any artist.
I hope you are finding time to explore your own journals~
Happy New Year to you all!
We had a houseful this year with all of our kids and grandkids home for the holidays. It was awesome and I’m beat lol! I spent a lot of time cooking, crafting and decorating so I thought I’d share a few pics with you. I just love homemade anything during the holidays!
