A peek in my Art journal

Did everyone on the east coast survive the storm? There was some snow and ice where I am, but not much accumulation. A wonderful day to spend sipping warm drinks and getting lost in projects, no? I spent a good portion of the day playing in my art journal, here's what happened!

'I am your own way of looking at things,' She said. ' When you allow me to live with you , every glance at the world around you will be a sort of salvation.' And I took her hand. 
I am really terrible at "finishing" journal pages beyond interesting backgrounds, so I am happy I got so much on the page.I decided to draw out a muse, today she is purple! I used stamps, crayola markers, gel pens, gesso, and a healthy amount of glitter. The qoute is from William Stafford's poem called "When I met my muse," very appropriate! Overall I'm happy with how it turned out, but the halo still bothers me a bit. I intended it to be a paler kind of glowy look, but instead I have a Dragon Ball Z look, oops! How do you find words or quotes to use in your journals?

A week worth celebrating!

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope everyone got the chance to spend it with the important people in their life. I was lucky enough to come home from visiting family and find this lovely package sitting outside my door!The beautiful Mary at Uncustomary had a giveaway to celebrate 444 followers, and I was the lucky winner!

It makes getting dressed in the morning a celebration!

The confetti is quite possibly my favorite! Or is it the garland! Many thanks Mary, your package was a great reminder to celebrate life everyday, not just the holidays :)

December is already here! Have you started your shopping, crafting and baking or are you a procrastinator like me?
