Oh, you´re so good at journaling! I never do anything in my art-journal anymore. It´s bad, cause when it becomes too rare, you kind of don´t know what to do in there, and you postpone it even longer, and it gets even harder to do! Bummer. Good thing I have inspiring friends! Yay! You´re the best!

i'm thinking i need to start an art journal, that's a new area for me. love seeing the snippets of yours! oh and right now i'm downloading the free life plan from that michael hyatt fellow. :)


absolutely delightful... keep inspiring us with your creativity my dear... you are a blessing!


I just love how colorful and fun this is! :)


Wow! Awesome and fun!


Love all the color and energy on this page. I just started art journaling and appreciate the inspiration you bring. TFS!


I love your journal pages! They are always so beautiful and colorful. Personally, I have given up on journaling (of that kind) due to my inability to simplify!! LOL Every page I tackle becomes something akin to a complete painting and then I feel trapped because it's in a book! I know...I'm crazy! Thanks for sharing those pages of inspiration!

I love the headbands as well...and the girls are beautiful!! xoxo


you amaze me your creativity is off the charts, the pages just jump, and pop with color and your humor
