New journal

Here is the cover of my new journal. It's filled with yummy paper. Not Fabrianno, which is my favorite. I can't remember what I used. I will have to find out later! Last week I bought some oil pastels and acrylic paint by Acryla. I've been playing a little. Watched Vicky Christina Barcelona the other day and fell in love!!!! Penelope Cruz is gorgeous and so is her husband - just yummy. On top of it, I want to drop everything and go live in a small artsy town in Spain or Italy. Even my kids would love it. Maybe one day, when my husband and I are old and he wants to go back to pottery! Follow your passion. Passion is life!

I'm back!

Finally, I am back!!! I didn't go anywhere really, I think I just vacated mentally. The last two months have been crazy busy and fun! I meant to blog and post, but life just took over. Tons of eating, partying, and seeing friends!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and am wishing you a Happy New Year. We had a wonderful time with family and friends.
Here are some recent pages. I'm excited b/c I'm just about finished with this journal and need to stitch up my new one. I'm going to try a new watercolor paper even though I LOVE Fabriano Artistico. Take a peek here....
