HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY! Everyone should know that you are the best wife and mother to my children any man could ever ask for. I thank God for you everyday of my life. I LOVE YOU!

Aww...how sweet !

Happy Belated Birthday Michelle !

Gorgeous journal!


Jennifer Roberson Williams

What beautiful colors you have on these pages! I always want to go for color but end up with mutes ones instead. My subconscious working maybe?

I like how you don't work in order. It gives these pages a more spontaneous feel. Great work!

I love your journal pages. The colors are so rich and the images so creative. Makes me want to create something.

Karla Dornacher

Love your journal pages... so you... so colorful and alive and free and fun!


Michelle, it's always a blessing and an inspiration to come here. I have not ever done anything in "order"... your daughter has a wonderful creative life ahead, doesn't she? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, is how I view that!

My birthday wish for you is that I hope your birthday was the best you've ever had, but not as good as the next one for the rest of your life.


Hi! I'm from the Philippines. I am planning to start my very first art journal and I'm always surfing the net for inspiration. I really like the one you made, I hope I am able to make one too...but I am not an artist like my husband.
