all is calm~

"it is only when we silence the blaring of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts."  k.t.jong

my daddy

one of my art journaling students gave me some really old books and i've altered the cover and the inside with fun collage.  it's so freeing to just tear and modpodge in any fashion, no rules or plan....just play!
the pages in the journals aren't complete with writing or scribble yet, but ready for me to add pen to paper when i'm inspired to go there. :)

here are some of my latest journaling pages ....
i've been unintentionally drawn to old family photos
and craving the traditions that we had when my mom
was here.  the memories are priceless though and we
now have started our own little quirky traditions.  in the 
past i've resisted being TOO traditional; ( we never know
what might come up....)  but now my girls are getting older
and i'm getting a little more sentimental about them having 
some precious memories of family traditions like i've been
gifted with.  

i am hoping to have some very wonderful news tomorrow and the waiting is just about to EAT ME ALIVE!  i will tell all tomorrow if it happens...and it has nothing to do with art or jewelry. 
so, if i've sparked your interest, check back tomorrow or as soon as you can and i'll share my news! 


  1. Oooo, loving those pages. It's a good reminder about traditions, I hope my kids will have fond memories of home. Here's hoping you get your good news tomorrow! :)

  2. Love the art -- and hoping for your wonderful news!
