Week #9 - Art Journal Prompt


For this week the challenge is to create a card that reflects who (or what ) do you miss in your life right now.
For me, I miss my friendships and my social life.
Living a "new normal" life with chronic pain has meant many adjustments. I'm not able to be as 'present' as I need to be to nurture my relationships so some of my friends have moved on. That coupled with 3 dear friends who have recently moved to new countries has left me feeling lonely more often. Despite that, I still feel blessed for my friendships, both here and gone. Godspeed my friends!

****I know that some of you are a little behind so as an incentive, anyone who gets up to date by the end of the week and posts here will have their name go into a draw for a RAK!!!***

Art Journal Prompt - Week #8


Everyone has a shoe story!! This week share yours!!!...be sure to show this story on your card!!!!
Here is my take on this week's challenge.Every detail had been planned for my daughter and son in law's winter wonderland wedding and I was so excited to be the
mother of the bride! I had purchased my outfit and gorgeous shoes in July, so I had neglected to try them on with stockings.On December 4th, while everyone was leaving for the church, I was freaking out because my
expensive shoes were sliding off of my feet!
Luckily I had another pair of shoes as a replacement
but my FABULOUS shoes have never been
worn to this day!

Week 7- Art Journal Prompt


For this week the challenge is peace(what does it mean to you) .
For me, I am at peace when I don't have a care or worry in the world and all is right and uncluttered in my world. To quote India Arie." I wanna go to a place where I am nothing and everything, that exists between here and nowhere. I wanna go to a place where time has no consequences, the sky opens to my prayer. I wanna go to beautiful, beautiful beautiful..."For my card I used a white rub on dandelion and then placed a transparency over top that had the words joy on the bottom. I 'glued' it to the card with white paint.
Here's wishing you all a beautiful, peace filled week!

Art Journal Challenge Week #6


It's Thanksgiving in Canada so in keeping with that theme I would like your card to show 'something you are thankful for'

For me, there were so many choices but I chose my home. My home is my nest, my safe haven, a true manifestation of my soul. I am so thankful I have a place to go where I can truly be myself. It's a place where I can laugh, cry, regret and rejoice. A place where I can truly count my blessings and be thankful for the shelter it provides me.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends! Have a beautiful week everyone!
(Also can you leave a comment here so that I know you are still participating:)
