Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!


"Change" -- the completed journal

This journal began in the late summer of 2014. 
As I searched through my collection of discarded library books for the next one
 I wanted to start, a plain green one, called "Change!" stood out to me.
I had been going through some changes and more were on the horizon;
the title was reason enough to choose it.


Typically, the cover is the last thing I do since they get a bit grungy 
while I'm working on the journal.  Also, by the time I'm finished with the journal 
I feel like I "know" it better and can create the cover accordingly.

Here are a few of the pages to peruse.
If you would like to see more, there is a video at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for watching!

Sometimes we have to "Keep Going"

This page in my mini art journal was actually Plan B, 
and would not have existed had I not accidentally
erased the video to this page:

Although I was tempted to pack it in for the day, 
I really wanted to get a video posted, 
so I decided to 
"Keep Going"

I'm glad I did.

Edited to add:

I'm joining Carolyn's Let's Play Link Party!

Winds of Change

When I came across these two images, I knew they had to go together.
I love how this page turned out.

I finally got around to using a stencil I've had for a while. It made a nice
background for this page, don't you think?

ICAD 2015, Cards 5 and 6

Card 5 is a little abstract.  I drew from my journaling prompts box.  
The three cards were:
Do a monochromatic theme
Use numbers
Make lines with side of a credit card.
This is what happened.

Card 6 is inspired by my love of Chai tea.
I stapled on a tea envelope and tag.
The cup I drew and colored with watercolor pencils.
The border is a Dylusions stamp.
