Real Comfort

Hello, my friends!

A few more of my art journal pages to share with you…I love this journaling more than I can say…

This first book of mine seems to be filling itself with favorite quotes illustrated by wonderful vintage art…

I find myself feeling like a Victorian girl filling up her scrapbook…

…cutting, gluing, painting, writing a few words here and there…creating a keepsake of favorite things & gaining a bit of confidence with every page…

…and I’m loving every cut, glue, paint  & word!  There’s a great comfort I’m finding in doing this—can’t quite explain it…

And doodling…just letting the pen go where it will…what joy!

One of my very favorite quotes of all time—and I couldn’t agree with Miss Austen more.  These words actually go through my mind quite often when I’m relaxing with my family at home…

Real Comfort.

See you soon with something new…
