since i take photos wherever i go, before i write a post

i scan the photo library on my phone to remind myself

where i have been and what i have been doing.  

it's a willey-nilly style of organization.  i like it.

how do you decide on your next post?






this week i attended the rubber-stamp convention

in carson with my art pal, lorraine.  we also too

a junk journal class with teesha moore.







here is a peek of the journal.   i continue to add more and more

until it is crammed full of stuff i love and words i want to say.



today is friday and i am linking this post with paint party friday
a weekly community of artists.  click the link to see what others are
creating.

  3. Oh I love that face! It is beautiful. The journal looks fascinating. I suppose I decide what I'm posting based on what my current projects and whims are...

    1. I do the same, Lisa. It suits me fine but sometimes I wonder if I should be more deliberate... not really my style tho.
