journaling and such...



I've been away for a few days with my love. It was great to visit friends that I haven't seen in over two years and it's always nice seeing family. While I was gone, I visited Planet Earth and the Four Directions Gallery and Theresa Hochhalter's working studio. Both places are amazing! The gallery is one of my very favorite places to visit. It is a vintage thrift shop and gallery owned by my dear friend and artist, Caole. Theresa is another amazing artist friend that paints and sculpts in her studio full time. I was excited to visit with her in the studio and have a lovely chat about her work. Needless to say, I had the best time! I always find inspiration and motivation when around other artists.



Not to change the subject, but I've been thinking a bit about art journaling. I don't do it. I love journals. I love to create. Why not create an art journal? What a concept! So this week, I'm going to start an art journal and along the way I'll post what I've been jotting down.

Do you art journal? Have any tips or tricks you'd like to share with me? I would love to hear from you! I've missed you all and look forward to being home creating again!

I've had a few false-starts with art-journalling. I'd love to get into it more. Perhaps - your journey will be inspiring?!??! Looking forward to seeing how it goes..

HI Stephanie,
I do art journal, even though I am a relative newcomer to it. I am addicted to it. If you are looking for something to jump start you on your journaling, check out 21 Secrets (ecourse) through dirtyfootprints.com that I just joined. Its super cool and very inspiring!
Thanks for the follow on my blog, and I'm so happy to have found you, because now I'm following you too!

I have never done an art journal but I think it is a great idea and for sure it will be fun! Hope I can see you progress with the journal and than I can be motivated to begin one! Hugs and Keep Enjoying the Ride....
