I have been art journaling like there is not tomorrow. I work in my journal everyday at lunch time and any other time I can squeeze it in. I tend to work in a few journals at a time. But, of late I have been working mostly in one. I made this one to take along to artfest since my other one was so fat I would have had to pay an extra fee I am sure of it just to get it on the plane! So here are some pages for you to look at. They are not in any order, just random glimpses into my journal. Some are done some are not, I find that I can go back and add stuff when ever I want. I have also let go of keeping things in order. My journals are just a moment in time or a memory of another time, I like it this way.

Several months ago I made an elephant out of a pair of my old sweatpants for someone who I love who was having a hard time. It was so great to do this for her and use something that had been mine. I got the idea one night late, the house was quiet and the elephant came into being effortlessly. I have begun in the last few years to use old clothes to make dolls and stuffed beings for family and it sure is a blast. No pattern at all, just go with the feeling of what you wish to create. You will be guided!

Wow! So much has happened, let me see! I did go to ARTFEST! It was a total blast, Here is a photo of me and my BFF's! Vanessa and Judy from Arizona. Oh my we had such a great time. We laughed so hard our cheeks cramped up.
The classes were awesome as usual! I took PMC Frameworks from Catherine Witherall(the PMC Goddess for sure) . I learned so many new things and made an awesome pendant with a photo in the center of it. Way cool!
Nina Bagly was Friday and I learned so many techniques I know it will improve my jewelry designs.
I am so excited to drill holes in rocks and glass! Woohoo!
Michael Deming was my last day and he is amazing! We made mini Nicho's out of matchboxes. I am totally into making these!
I will post photos soon! Promise.
My GRANGIRL called me today and told me she is a follower of my blog so I would like to welcome Bella Boo! I love that girl all the way to the moon and back and back and back....
