May 31st...Really? And a Sneak Peek

May slipped by with the cold weather so no one noticed...
and poof! It's gone!

But we know June will be wonderful...so here's a little peek at my new calendar for the 2011 Challenge...

...I'll show you the rest tomorrow!

Hope your May was lovely and creative and full of blossoms and promises, friends!
Thank you for visiting. You brought me sunshine!

The Space Between

Daily rains...
not much sun for 3 months...
but there are daisies down the road!

Wishing you fields of daisies amidst your storms.

Instead, I Found This...!

All I did was look down just now...

If you believe in luck, you're more than welcome to rub this! Hope it wears off on YOU!
Have a great evening!

I Need My Net

Where do all of the lost things go?

*Have you lost anything lately? Did you find it?
Hope so...!

Boston in my Mind

It's so nice; I close my eyes and I'm still in Boston for the weekend or I enjoy my photos all over again.
Hope you enjoy these, too. Though it was very cold & rainy, Boston is so incredibly beautiful, that photos come out pretty....

 I LOVE wisteria. I think I need some.

Enjoy your evening!

Back from Boston!

Yep, we went away for a long weekend and went to the Boston's House of Blues to listen to Adele sing live!!! It was a very beautiful, very moving experience. If you love her music, you would love it even more after being with her for the evening. Her music is so personal, she sometimes wells up...Her voice is an instrument.

So even though Boston was very cold and rainy most of the weekend, I enjoyed myself thoroughly and was even pleased that I got on a plane! It's been a while.  Such a beautiful city...such history...such good pasta in the Old North End! ♥

I've been thinking a lot lately....
...I may have this new journal be my "Compassion" Journal.

Since people close to me tell me
that I am rather hard on myself,
I thought that maybe I was introduced
to this Compassion For One's Self
idea for a reason.

What do you think? Are you loving and kind to yourself?

Colorful Words of Children

You may remember this post back in March when I was teaching my second grade students how to add descriptive details to their journaling. Well, I finally photographed some of their "Favorite Color" writing pieces. I thought that you creative friends might like to see the finished products! These colorful paragraphs were full of welcome surprises. They make me smile, so I hope you enjoy them, too!

Well, I had a Lime Green, Pink, Purple, and Yellow to show you, but after spending over an hour trying to get them to show right-side-up, they STILL loaded upside down.
Truly, if you know why, and can help, please let me know!
{That is so frustrating! Argh...}

Summer Dreamin'

My mind and body respond so positively to the warmth and light of summer...well, one has to wonder
why I don't live in a warmer, sunnier climate...

Anyway, I have to laugh (have to), as I went to take my Ellie outside last night, I put on my black winter coat, scarf, and boots...and realized that it's MAY!  It's May, people, and it's COLD out!  What?

Hey, we may not get spring afterall this year, but summer's going to come. 
And I'll relax and play and create and feel the sun on my face.
I can't wait.

The Key

I often think about The Golden Rule
and that it could be so simple...
Anyway, today was...one of THOSE days.

Journaling really makes me feel better.
So do you.

(I haven't written on the felt side page yet...but I will, sooner or later!)

Encouraging the Positive

This new page on the right was inspired by some words I heard today.

I sponge painted the background, did some collage,
then painted some spring green.

The writing is some self talk...

Hope you all had a good Monday start to the week.
Is it just me or do the weeks seem to be flying?

May Calendar 2011

Here's my April calendar, all completed:

 I can not believe how quickly April went...

And here is May 2011! I may add a bit more on the top left, but I liked it simple today. This one was inspired by the windy skies lately and me wanting more blues with sunshine.

Thanks for looking! 
Have a great week,  ♥K
