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.

Last page of my October Journal..November's is coming soon...

I had a lovely day yesterday with my friends Darcy and Lisa Sonora. It was a fun girl day filled with lots of talk, laughter and smiles.

We hit-

Nova Color

Urban Craft Center


Kino Buy It All, I mean Kinokuniya

Lunch was at the absolutely scrumptious (as in I can't wait to go back there and try dessert too next time) Aroma Cafe in Studio City. THE LINE WAS OUT THE DOOR! OMG! It was sooooo yummy and sooooooooo well worth it.

What did I buy? Not much. I was very good.

-I needed white acrylic at Nova Color for my classes so I stocked up! Sign me up for a quart and I'm good to go.

-Well, I had just been to Urban Craft Center on Saturday when I taught so I was very very good. It was difficult to resist their temptatious goodies.

-Zinnia? I loaded up on glue for my class at Artful Living in Ojai this Sunday. Tamara and Suki were taking down the 350 show. I bought a certain unnamed family member an original Angela Cartwright piece so someone will be quite happy come Christmas!

? I resisted the siren's call from their tape and masking tape department considering I have all of the masking tape already (shhhh). They do have some of the best prices around in the U.S. for the M-T Masking tape. $6.30 for two rolls, $33 or so for a 10 pack of the wide tape (in two different color themes with "Springy" type colors and "Fall" type colors) or a 20 pack of all of the colors in just a narrower size tape. They also have patterned packs of tape. You can check out the M-T Masking tape line here. Kinokuniya DOES do mail order so you could phone them to place an order. I've found their prices better than some of the ones on etsy. If I find any bargains in the coming weeks I will post here!!!

-I did succumb to one of my favorite book companies at Kino. They have the latest Paumes book called Copanhagen Apartments in stock and well, it jumped into my hands. It needed to go home with me. I also left with 3 pens and a funky crayon type thing that I will tell you about soon.

What was the best part of the day? Was it the goodies? Noooooo. It was spending several hours in the company of two very good friends. *thanks ladies* for such a fun fun FUN day. Let's do it again soon!!!

Comic Con 4 day passes with preview night?

Sounds like you had fun all round. Journal page is lovely.

Happy to hear you had a "fun" day instead of a work day. Isn't it great to be with people who "get" and love the same stuff you do?

Why don't I live closer?

And have all those cool stores to shop at? (maybe it's good that I don't)

Sounds like a fabulous day...no Soap Plant Wacko? (Newberry Comics in Boston reminded me a little of SPW..) I really want to come down and play!!!!!
