A Peek Inside My Art Journal . . .

Had the rainy day blues today so just had to paint a warm, sunny, tropical spread in my art journal.  I can hear the steel drums in the background . . . “we’re jammin’, jammin’”

Monday Sketches (Dream Fairy)

  Today I sketched a dreamy little fairy . . . She looks like I feel right now . . . ready to close my eyes and drift away . . . night-night!!

Focus Friday {LOVE}

  Friends recently introduced me to Rebecca Sower’s blog and in particular, her “Autumn Focus Board.”  You can see her post here.  We all spent time last weekend working on Focus Tags and I was so inspired by the project, I decided it would be a great reminder of the things that are truly important to me and the words …
