Oooh! great pages! The colors are so yummy! Hope you are having a super day! (oh and I totally get your garage sale addiction! Im lucky though, my hubby is usually the one asking me do you wanna go??) I LOVE the color you picked! Can you tell me the brand and color?? I was just about to repaint my old brown lamp a lovely shade of turquiose, and yours is definitly the best color!!! :o) Im hopefully putting up "Professer Hootinsnoot" on my blog tomorrow. If you have time come meet the lovely chap. LOL! xo Tam


Lovely as always, my creative friend! Hope you had a great Easter!

I love these! I love the quote by Seth Godin, and it's ringing true for me right now. :) And that owl is pretty darn cute!

The FROG! Being a hater of frogs (real ones) I have to say that is the BEST looking frog I have ever seen, in fact I bet that frog would look great on birthday wrapping paper or on a birthday card!

I loved the sweet sixteen pictures, my baby turns 16 this Thursday. Thanks for sharing ~ it looked wonderful ... by the way, what has happened to the dangling dude? Will we see him pop up some day soon?


michelle thank you for stopping by my blog. it means so much to me because i just LOVE what you do and always feel inspired when i come to YOUR site! and now you've done these journal pages and all i want to do work on my journal now. i could just stare at your artwork all day!


I love these. I like how you painted around your doodles. Great art page.

they are so so wonderful! one of my highlights of artfest was going through your journals. so so amazing!
(and don't think i didn't see where you ran a marathon in just over 4 hours...dang!)
