Merry Christmas to ME!

As a member of The Paper Pantry I was able to join their Secret Santa Swap this year, and holy cow, let me tell you...those women are generous beyond imagination! I can hardly believe some of the packages that have been swapped, but the biggest surprise was the one that came to me!!

My Secret Santa was Melaney. You can meet her and all the wonderful women of the pantry by joining today! Your Paper Pantry

About a month ago, Dede surprised me with this gift. It now sits in my craft room, framed and lovely, and where I can always look to it for inspiration. Those of you who know Dede will understand how there are no words to express my gratitude. No words to say what is in my heart. But be assured that if the house were on fire, this would definitely NOT burn. ;-)

I'm very fortunate and happy to have found art journaling and people like Dede. People with great talent who lend their encouragement to those of us that are less than talented.

I love you, Dede!

The first 12 days of National Nonstop Journaling Month are done. Yay! I'm really enjoying this, and I'm glad that I used the smaller journal. Some of the prompts require a bit of thought, while others I've been able to process quickly. I keep telling myself there are no rules, no need to be perfect every day and it helps. It allows me to play and have fun with it. One of my problems is that I always like someone elses work better than my own, so I'm overly critical of what I do. That has to STOP, and journaling every day is helping. I hope it sticks.

Thanks for stopping by!

November Calendar

The month isn't quite half over, so I don't feel as bad as I could about being so late with my calendars! I've been working on some swaps and the daily journaling, and just being too lazy to finish up. I don't know if I'll be doing this again but I will try to do one for December. Maybe I'll feel differently about it when the holidays are over. I've met so many nice women and seen such beautiful blogs. I'd miss that.

Here we are with October and November, which is actually in the works and has been for a while!

November Prompts with Dawn Sokol

I've been toying with the idea of doing Dawn's 30 day NaNoJouMo (National November Journaling Month) but I don't know if I can stay with it, the end of the year gets very busy. I took a peek this morning though and she's started off with a bang. She has her own little page posted for the prompt to show how simple journaling every day can be. I'm in. I'm going to use a small journal for this and make it easy on myself.

So if you're interested in journalling prompts, get on over there and get a little inspiration. Did I mention it's free?
