I’m sure I’m not alone when I say ‘where has 2019 gone’. Overall the year has been a good one, yes there’s been some minor bumps in the road, but hey that’s what life is all about, and I’ve certainly had worse years.
I just realized that it’s been a month since I blogged…well November was a very very crazy month at work, sadly I had to give that more attention than my art work. Though I didn’t ignore my art totally….I’ve been playing in my art journal because it’s quick and I don’t stress over the end results.
As we all move into the holidays we are all busy, but I encourage you to take some time to practice your art in whatever form that might be. I will be taking some time to reflect inward, and think about how I want to move my art forward in the new year!
I have started a little Christmas season project….but you’ll have to wait a bit before I show you that!
Ok I know stop rambling and let’s get on with the show…..
Last year Mike and I went on our first no kid vacation since before our third was born. We spent a few days in Hecla at the resort, it was heavenly!! When we saw the giant Moose on our drive up we had to stop and take photos…..old family joke behind these.
My favorite thing about this journal is how interactive it is with all the pockets and flips.
We went up in early June specifically to avoid the busy season once school was out. It was very quiet at the resort so our timing was great, even though it was a tad cool…..no swimming at the beach, but the resort had a fantastic hot tub and mineral pool!
This lined coffee stained paper gave me all the room I needed to journal some of our memories from our trip! We even got ‘lost’ trying to find a trail, but we laughed and kept exploring!
The Tim Holtz pocket card gave me another spot to add yet another photo, this is from the viewing tower we eventually found ourselves at.
I had so many photos from this trip that this mini folder I made was the perfect solution to keep everything together and give me the space I needed.
Mike is quite enjoying flipping through the journal which I’ve dedicated to us and it’s not even done yet!
Thank you for joining me on this journey today!
