What is a girl to do when she find Mason Jars on sale half price?
What is that same girl supposed to do when she’s inspired by the colors in the scarf she’s wearing?
Watch and learn…
And what is that girl supposed to do with this beautiful palette of paint?
Paint, of course!
This is a happy palette. Reminds me of Monet.
These are happy fingers.
Love my new vase!
Love my new art journal entry!
What’s inspiring you today?
You may remember my owl family from my sketchbook…
Well, now they have made their way into my art journal.
That’s me… with the curly eyelashes.
That’s Ol’ Blue Eyes and my other punk who is 21 and has left our nest. He kind of has a beard because last week when he was over here, he looked like a Amish-man with a beard all around.
This is me with our other two punks. You can tell them apart by their hair. The top one is our youngest with curly hair, and the bottom one is our oldest. His hair is different every day, but I did my best.
When you put us all together, we make a family and it is good because LOVE makes a family.
I had sketched a Christmas cupcake in my journal a few months ago, so I decided I needed to sketch a Spring cupcake as well.
I am journaling in a book off my shelf, Honor’s Reward by John Bevere. I hope John doesn’t mind.
I’m enjoying integrating the chapter titles into my work, and it seemed a cupcake was fitting here… although I don’t think this is what John had in mind.
Oh well. It works for me.

I’m always creating, but I recently signed up for a sketching class by Junelle Jacobsen and I’ve fallen in love with thumbnail sketching. Here’s a peek into my sketchbook.
Sometimes it’s the simplest pages from my journal that speak the loudest.
