first art journal page of 2020 So I started a blog post to re-enter the blogging world…then Coronavirus happened. Out went that blog post draft. Life as we know it is gone. Our governor here in California yesterday issued a … Continue reading
I’ve been doing lots of art journaling lately. Late at night, when the husband and mother in law are asleep, that’s MY time. You’ll find me at the dining table with a wonderful mess spread out in front of me, … Continue reading
Friday, October 20th, was the fourth anniversary of my sister Patty’s unexpected death. Four years. Since then, every subsequent October 20th always start out terribly, sadly, sometimes angrily for me. I wake up in the early morning hours and relive … Continue reading
Fall is here! I love fall – it’s my favorite season. Love the cooler weather, the changing colors of leaves, even fall fashion. Today fall 2017 introduced itself with a somewhat chilly morning – a comfortably cool 62 degrees. I … Continue reading

Just wanted to share today’s sketchbook journal page. This started with some late night scribbling and doodles last night, and I finished it today while listening to the pouring rain. (LOVE the sound of rain!)
I’ve added a couple new items to my Etsy shop!
I LOVE painting these beautiful tin nichos from Mexico. I painted this chapel nicho in bright colors – red, turquoise, green, and more – and on the inside I used the “El Corazon” card from a Loteria game (like Mexican bingo) on a bed of gold glitter (also from Mexico). To see more photos go to my Etsy shop (link above)!
This small wood angel ornament measures just under four inches tall and comes ready to hang with a twine loop. I drew bold whimsical flowers on a white background, making them pop by using purple, turquoise, orange, yellow, and green.
I have lots more projects in progress – I’ll be sharing soon!
‘Til next time…
