Art Journal Kickstarter is in the House!

Good morning everyone! I am so excited to announce that the book Art Journal Kickstarter is out and available for purchase. You can see my work in the book on page 82 and 83. The book is really beautifully done, featuring some really amazing talent and great tips on art journaling. If you’d like to order a copy you can find it directly from the publisher, North Light Books HERE or from Amazon HERE.

I am so thrilled to be a part of such a cool collaboration! 🙂

In other news I’ve been busy in my messy (as usual) art area.

Between work and sick kids, I haven’t done as much as I’d like, but I have completed a few art journal pages.

I’ve also been working on a collaborative project with a few fellow Facebook artist friends. As soon as that is done I will be sharing a few pics of that project.

I hope you all have a great day! 🙂

Here’s to 2015!!

Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit bad again neglecting my blog. With so much going on in the last few weeks it’s been hard to find some creative time. 2014 was pretty good to me. At the beginning of last year when I sat down and prepared my goals for the year, and meditated on my “one little word” for the year to tie in with my goals, I came up with the word GROW. And I did a lot of personal, as well as creative growing.

One of my goals for the year was to be published, a dream that I had for a while, but never had the courage to pursue. During the year, that dream was realized when I was contacted by North Light Books to have two art journal pages published in Art Journal Kickstarter. Soon after, I had a piece I submitted to Somerset Studios also picked up for publication.

I was also lucky to be a part of Frog Dog Studio mixed media kit club, as well as attend CHA for the first time!

All in all, a pretty great year creatively! Looking ahead to 2015 I will have an announcement to make later this month once all the details are finalized and I’m setting my biggest art goal yet–to have a series of pieces in a gallery. In thinking over this year, I’ve settled on FOCUS for my word. I have a bad habit on not focusing completely on one certain thing, I tend to bounce around a lot and get easily distracted. Knowing that, I’m giving myself permission to FULLY FOCUS on the task at hand (something I am constantly telling my daughter, who has the same problem LOL). I am hoping that in doing this I can put all my energy into my work and really make a breakthrough!

Wishing you all a creative, and joyful 2015!!!
