I don't think I've ever done this before. Created something just for me, that is. This is my first; a tiny little canvas that reminds me to Believe. Believe in my dreams, believe in perfect timing and most importantly, to believe in myself. . . .
"Dreams do come true if you keep believing in yourself. Anything is possible."

Thank you for your visit! I believe I have to find a place to hang this now . . . .
I laughed out loud when I saw it. I was reading our friend Daniele's blog a few weeks ago when I saw a gorgeous photo she posted of a latte resting on top of the newest issue of Stampington's Art Journaling. She mentioned that she'd just been on an "alone date" and was thrilled with her coffee and new source of inspiration. Ironically, I got out of the house that day too and did the same thing! A latte and the latest Art Journaling was the way I too choose to spend a few moments alone . . . .
Well, one thing led to another and we got to talking. We discussed how although we've both done journal entries before, that at least for me, it never really included the journaling part. We wanted to give this style of art a real try, but agreed that we needed to come up with something that could be completed in a reasonable amount of time. That idea lead to what you see here: the journal entries of two girls - who's lives are filled with art and kids - completed in just one week.
The concept was to spend just an hour a day working on what would become seven journal pages. If you're laughing now, it's because you already know what I didn't: that we would both end up spending every spare moment on it, pouring our hearts and souls into what has become a true reflection of our innermost thoughts, if only for one week.
Here's what I came up with:

Thank you for your visit! I so appreciate your time . . . .
I've been Arting a lot lately, but you wouldn't know it by looking here. I have something up my sleeve that I hope to have completed in time to share with you next week . . . . Meanwhile, I wanted to sneak in a few detail shots of the WIP's here.
