What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

The Journey Book

Here's a teaser peek at my "Journey Book" sample. I'll be debuting this class on Sunday, July 12th at Stampin From The Heart in L.A. Yes, the stitch is the long stitch with chain. It's super easy and a ton of fun, plus it looks COOL.

I had off yesterday, but spent all day working on my July A Prompt A Day class. It's really a kick working from my own prompts. It's surreal. It's not like I don't know they're mine, I do, but I wrote them and I tend to forget what I wrote until I sit down to do the prompts. I've been keeping two journals. I have my regular journal and I have my APAD journals. I LOVE working in both. They're quite different. My APAD journals I work from the same prompts that my students are working from. It's really a push and pull experience. I've been keeping a journal for years and yet I'm still learning. We all are. That's one of the best things about keeping a journal. It's an ongoing learning experience and you're documenting it all the way.

Love the shape of this journal. Long and narrow.
Looking forward to the July prompt a day too. Getting excited.
