I've been busy making journals for Christmas orders and am getting more inventive with them everyday! Making them has really helped me get back in the creative mode. I hope someday to be painting again but for now....it's JOURNALS!!
This one above was fun to do! The back and front are felted pieces I did on my felting machine. LOVE doing that! and the straps are from weavings I did. Little button on top is handmade by me out of sculpey clay.
This one is from a 1962 Readers Digest book. Hand crocheted straps and more sculpey buttons and beads.

THE MOST EXCITING thing for me lately is that my husband and I are leaving on the 27th for a BIG
We have had, as you well know if you follow this blog, a very hard year and we are getting away to do some healing. We are going out WEST!! Colorado, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma then HOME.....maybe :)
I am really hoping and praying that this trip will inspire me to get back to my painting again. When I first started back painting in 1987, my work was mostly southwest art. I love the culture and I love the color so praying that inspiration will return.
SO......adios until the trip is over which is going to be about 2 1/2 weeks....
Thanks for your continued support.....
