LOVE LOVE LOVE the girl!!!

Sorry about things taking sooooo long to get into your new space but how exciting to know it's in the works!!

And seeing your new journal page makes me want to play in mine!!

Thanks for the inspiration my dear!


My fav thing about reading your blog is that there's always a riot of colour here to greet me. You are fearless with paint. I love that. :)

What a sweet treat to share.
Your journal pages are very delightful too.


Love love love your journal pages. Always puts a smile on my face. About the 9lbs.... I also wanna run my extra 9lbs off. WHY can't we just paint it away. xox

Michelle, I just love, love, love your work. I saw you (don't think I officially met you) at ArtFest last year (didn't make it this year) and just loved your stuff and thought you were the cutest woman ever! I have recently come home to be a full time mom and artist. At 40, I'm a little behind, but I have two shows I will have work in in the next two months. SCARY! Anyway, just wanted you to know that you are an inspiration! ~Lori Carey, Helena, MT

I just checked out your previous post with pics of your new studio space - oh, how exciting!! Change is always good - especially when you're moving into such a healthy looking place at that - so crisp and bright! And the running? Well, glad I'm not the only one that thinks it's hard. I'm supposed to be training for a 10k right now and just can't get motivated. But I know that it's a cyclical thing, and one day soon I will be just dying to go for a run..and won't want to stop. I just wish that were today. :)
