However! In the interim, I have a lovely friend in the UK that I would like you to meet. She lives on the Isle of Wight (if you're a Beatles fan, this is a very cool thing!) She's an artist who blogs on a regular basis and has most recently found a niche in the style of Teesha Moore! I'm so blown away by the pages she creates (and now teaches) that I'm awestruck each time I visit her blog. So get on over there and have a look-see, and leave a little love. You'll be happy you did!

My attempts to post on this blog have failed miserably. I haven't published anything since February, started to blog in March but never finished, and now it's April. I'm so (not) ashamed of myself. I'm just not a dependable blogger, even though I want to be one. I also want to be an artist and be 5'4" but that ain't happening either. ;)
I finished The A to Z of Me class in February and haven't journaled a thing since! Guess I needed a break between that and the 21 Secrets class that started April 1st! I'm very excited about 21 Secrets and will no doubt be kept very busy! Hope I can blog every now and then and show what I'm doing. I've only completed one page out of four "secrets". Some techniques I'm already aware of and have used them in the past, so I'm not journaling along with each one. I have 18 classes (courses?) left and I'm sure I'll be working along with most of them!
This is such an excellent program and I'd encourage anyone to sign up if you still can. If not, maybe next year, but don't miss out on this. You get SO Much knowledge at an unbelievably low rate. You can pick and choose from 21 different artists or attend all of them, it's up to you, (and why I've only completed one page out of four classes!). Do it! Sign up now! You'll have until the end of the year to complete the entire program. 21 Secrets
In March, I joined an altered cigar box swap at Your Paper Pantry, and Loved playing with that box! My partner was Cari Masciangioli who wanted a black and white box, and I was most happy to oblige. I really enjoyed making this.
I also tried my hand at another mixed media mosaic. I adhered bits and pieces to the cover of a bolsa box from Michaels. I'm liking this too, but I still need to spray it! I ordered some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and have yet to open the package! That'll be next, promise! But as usual, when I have something I need to do, I always end up reorganizing my room instead of working in it!
See you Soon with a new Inspiration or two!

This has been nothing but pure enjoyment for me, and I think it shows in my pages. Some are extremely simple and.... what am I saying? They're all simple! It just "felt" different. Freeing maybe? Sheesh, I've been doing this for a couple years now and I think it finally kicked in. I stopped TRYING and just DID! Amen to that!

I'm trying to journal more and these prompts are definitely helping with that, but I won't always show the writing.

See that blinkie over there on the right? Yes, it's the blinky that isn't blinking! (so why do they call them blinkies?). If you click on it, you will be taken to the website for An A to Z of Me. I think I'm going to really like this one and you should all come and play along. It's only for 26 days, a day for each letter of the alphabet, (get it? huh? huh? Of course, you do!). Just check it out...it's easier than I thought and yet still thought provoking as all get out. C'mon! And when I'm done with this, I just might go back and do the Attitude of Gratitude. Gotta love that positivity.

I've been feeling a bit UNcreative lately, at least on paper. I can still shop and reorganize my craft space ten times a week, but I'm just not finishing any journal pages right now. I'm not finishing any projects either and I have a few of those around here too. Blah. That's what it feels like, which says to me it's time to re-fuel, tune-up, change the oil and start the engines all over! Yeah! It's time for another Class!
Whooohooo! 21 Secrets has arrived again with all new instructors and new secrets, so I've thrown my hat in (or rather my $59) and signed up! The only problem is that it doesn't start until April! o.....m.....g. What to do in the interim? Hmmm, I could finish the Wild Abandonment class I started, yep, that sounds like a plan. And then in February I can join Bernice Hopper in her A to Z of Me. I saw what she did with her last group and I really liked it. So that should keep me busy for a while as I never seem to finish anything with a group. I'm usually lagging behind by a few days, or more, maybe even a month, maybe....ok, not going there.
There you have it. I've absolutely no plans for this week. What about you?
