Been very busy

I have not posted anything in a while, been very busy with Sophia, but I have managed to squeeze in some journaling here and there.  Any spare time that I have I try to work in the art journals, yes I have more then one started right now.  I have slowing been bringing my art supplies and journals downstairs, I have ended up working on the kitchen table now, I do have all that space upstairs in the "gameroom" but it seems I have a better chance of working on my art stuff downstairs.  My journal is my escape, if I am stressed or upset it makes me calm and relaxes me, I just love to feel creative, and these journals is where I "dump" it all.

New project

Well here is the new project I have been working on, I want to make at least three scarves before winter.  Been working on the first for a few days now, usually just about twenty or thirty minutes at a time, hopefully I will be finished by the time it gets chilly.  Didn't have enough energy to make dinner last night so we ended up having pizza, not the healthiest of choices I guess.  Well heres to a creative and productive day, TGIF!!!

some pages from my journal

Here are just a couple of pages from one of my art journals, I wish I had more time to work in them, I have alot of ideas brewing in my head, but with Sophie being three months now, I really don't have much time.  Whenever I can steal a moment in my busy day this is what I love to do, it's just me being "me".  Today I didn't have much time to do much of anything, Sophie seemed to want my undivided attention most of the day, I don't mind of course, I feel blessed that I can stay home and spend my time with her, they grow up so fast, I just want to enjoy this special time.  This is all for now, now I am off to make a late dinner.

need to reorganize, yikes!!!

I really need to reorganize how I store my markers and pens, I don't like that I have been keeping them in a vertical position, I need to figure something out soon.  We had a great weekend, the girls and I went to HPB on Saturday, sadly they didn't  find anything they like, I scored and found some interesting art books.  I have been doing a workshop online with Kelly Kilmer, it is wonderful, she shares lots of info and great ideas, great video instruction and pictures.  I have been really been inspired to work in my journals daily and I tried my hand at making my own book, it was loads of fun.  She is a great teacher!!  I always say that I am addicted to art journaling, but it is so much more than that, it is an outlet for my feelings and a great way to express my self and be creative.  Well on Sunday I didn't have too much time to be creative, but it was nice and relaxing here at home, had some quality time  with JR watching some football, lol.  Hope this is a blessed and wonderful week.  :)

Some doodling in my moleskine :)

Well I haven't been on here in a while, everything has changed now that the baby is here, I no longer have much time for anything, lol.  She is beautiful and healthy and we are grateful.  I have started to work in my journals again, but I haven't been able to keep up on a daily basis, but either way it feels good to write , draw, or paint, anything  to get my artistic juices flowing again.
