Now that I've got all of my housekeeping done (a.k.a. class schedule for the New Year), I can get on with a proper blog post!
Above is another sneak peek at my latest journal. I've named it Wanderlust. I started it right before we left for Boston and I have been working in it daily since. It is an unusual format for me with pages that flip and fold up and out. It's also small (about 5 x 7"). It's a smaller book (for me) and the way that the book folds up on itself is very different. I'm really enjoying working in it.
I added three new slideshows to the right hand side of my blog:
Listen to Your Heart
(these are also 3 new classes that I'm debuting in AZ next month.)
I finally got my food processor/blender (yay!) and I've been making smoothies every morning for the past couple of days. If anyone has any favorite blogs, websites or recipes, I'd love to hear them!
Some Etsy Shop Love:
My sister ordered a blanket for my nephew, Jack, using our Grandfather's old firefighter shirt from this shop, Wanna Woobie. We love the job that she did (even removing the buttons and anything that might present a choking hazard.)
I ordered this necklace from Laurel Steven. Shipping was super fast (plus super cute packaging!) I can't wait to wear it! Check out Laurel's blog here.
I also ordered this necklace from Catherine Witherell. I have been wanting a piece of jewelry art from Catherine for so long. I was so happy to be able to order this. Shipping was also super fast and just really cute! Loved the extra goodies, too! Check out Catherine's blog here.
Before the year ended, I ordered several new tapes from etsy. I'm still waiting for them (one is from Australia and the other is from Japan.) I'll post as soon as they arrive.
Congratulations to my friend, Taylor, whose artwork made it into the new issue of Art Journaling. Taylor's art is unique and so wonderfully her. Check out her blog, Half Full, for more!
