Eyes Wide Open


December already…can you believe it?!  At this oh, so busy & wonderful time of the year, I’m finding that my art journal keeps me sane…


…not as much time to disappear up to “my room” to create things right now, so pages already painted can be added to & written on while sitting with my family enjoying time together…creativity can continue…just not while hiding upstairs!


Don’t you just love the face on this little girl?!  Can you remember a time when you were so surprised you looked like this?  I can thing of a few times in my own life—great memories!


SO many things to be grateful for—especially at this time of the year.  And I’m grateful for my family that keeps me so busy…lucky, lucky me!

Wishing you all a glorious start to the season…
