in my journal :: lots of writing

I have been doing lots of thinking
so I guess I had a lot to release onto
the pages...

Mixed media collage
in my art journal.

Is November really done in just a few hours?
Hope yours was filled with much
for which to be grateful!

Messages of Gratitude

Thank you to you, my friends!
Thank you for your visits and kindness
and for being my friends
but mostly for 
being YOU!

This is our first big snow of the new season
and the first snowman for 3 years!

Happy Thanksgiving U.S. friends,
and Love & Peace to friends everywhere!

It seems I have an IPad Email problem;
I have tried to email you to thank you for commenting,
and they go out into cyberspace.
So, my apologies if you haven't received
a personal message from me via your comment name.
Google+ does not happen, either.
But, I recognize YOU and thank you!

Releasing onto Pages

Journaling whenever I can...
trying to feel like I really do do something other
than work.

Remembering to breathe,
feel peace
listen to the silence...

...and know that even fatigue

Wishing the world could just
slow down.
You know?

I'm sure you do!

Okay, breathe.
Thanks for visiting.

in my journal

Collage and writing...
in my art journal.

We had an unexpected warmer day today.
I took my Mom to Fro Yo
for a frozen yogurt lunch...
yes, we played hookie from a traditional
boring lunch...

What's new with you?

Embracing This Life

Some moments of clarity
find me
and it's wonderful.


This journal page done with pastels
and a collaged image.

it's just me knocking...

Usually, I'm very decisive...
This one time, however,
I find myself just in the doorway.

Pastel Play :: journaling

Easing back in...
Attempting to not have every moment filled...

I saw the very first snowflakes of the season
as I drove home from work at dusk.

And then the sun shone...

I love pastels.

Thank you for waiting for me.
