Sit & Think


After a very busy couple of weeks, I’m enjoying some quiet time today…


…a little time to sit and think, reflecting on things that are important to me…


A few journal pages to share about those very things—quiet things.  Funny, they all seem to be done in similar colors, now that I look at them together like this…


…perhaps, to me, these are the colors of reflection…

Wishing you time to sit & think--



  1. Oh, my, your journal pages are lovely! You are inspiring!

  2. Just wondering . . . what type of pen do you use? I'm taking the Parlour Journal class and would love any suggestions. Your handwriting is stunning!

    1. Hi Kristi!

      Thanks so much! Hopefully you see this...I tried to find a way to contact you, but found no email--

      I mainly use Sharpie Fine & Medium pens, occasionally I'll use a Faber-Castell Pitt "artist pens" for filling in wide spaces. I'll also use gold or silver metallic paint & white gel pens for black pages. Hope this helps!

  3. more of your beautiful work! Im always amazed by your journal pages. someday.... someday.. Im going to make one. Lol.. I say that everytime I see your pages.
    have a great week

  4. Thank you for the pen information, Julie! I'm off to Staples!

  5. Nothing wrong with sitting and thinking.
    yet YOU are still creative while doing it.
    I love the colors....have a peaceful feeling.

  6. I am always blessed when I read the quotes you find to illustrate, Julie! Love the art, love the artist!

  7. So, so pretty, just like you. You inspired me and I created a beauty junk journal. I'll send you some images soon. That autograph book you found is amazing, what a blessing to find something with such lovely passages.


  8. I WISH I HAD TIME TO SIT & THINK! I think that is so very important to hear the words of our heart & mind. With all the crazy running we do there is little time to think.

  9. Hi Julie, you inspire me to expand my creative mind-set. I love your journal pages, they are perfection :)
    I've just started a give-away,
    pop in and enter :)
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  10. Wonderful sugar - I would add one more thought - "always do what you think is right - others might not agree but you decide what is right for you in your life" Well that is my thought for today. I do love your journal pages and hope I did not get preachy.

  11. Beautiful, Julie, just beautiful. Twyla
