New Look to the Blog!

Hi everyone,

Well, we have been in what has playfully been called the SNOWPOCALYPSE here in my hometown, so I have taken advantage of being snowed in and updated the look of my blog, once again.  Some of you frequent visitors have probably noticed that I have tried on a few new templates for size, but I haven't been too happy with any of the fits.  

At long last, I think I have found something that is going to work, a simple, yet attractive design that will compliment my artwork, instead of overwhelming it! 

I have also started working with the beauty of the additional Blogger page feature, so you will see that I have a new link at the top of my blog to information about my online classes.  

I would love to hear what you think of the new layout!

Art Journaling Every Day

Starting the Art Journaling Every Day Challenge at Balzer Designs has led me back to an old friend, my art journal!  So far it has not been difficult to fill the pages, but I have been home on Christmas vacation.  It will interesting to see what happens once I return to work.

This page was created for a calendar that I am contributing to.  It will be for the photo with the July/August pages, so I wanted something with a garden feel, but also with my own personal whimsical style.

The pages below have more of a diary feel.

The next one is a page in progress, my word of intent for the year 2011.  I do not make resolutions - they don't work for me.  Instead, I have a word that will be my focus for the year.  This word means so many things to me, and ties into all that I would like to be in 2011. I will post the finished page once it is done!
