Bloom Where You Are and Let the Seeds Carry You Far…

My variation on Bloom Where You are Planted. Bloom and then bloom again where the seeds take you. Allow yourself the happy happenstance of enjoying new vistas, new horizons. Bloom where you land and allow yourself to keep on moving and blooming.  It’s been a weird week here. More about that in the next post. …

Wearing Joy – Seeing Joy – Feeling Joy

Wearing Joy – Seeing Joy – Feeling Joy

There’s been a lapse in my regular posting schedule over the past two weeks. Once I got back in the swing of blogging and making the rounds of blogs I wanted to get involved in everything. Some of that is good. Some of that is too much. So I’m reevaluating what I should be involved with. Not only …

Pile on the glitter – Fashion Fridays

Pile on the glitter – Fashion Fridays

Last week I discovered that somewhere along the line I stopped wearing jewelry. What may have started as a decision not to wear jewelry that could be damaged when doing a messy project with students or when kneading dough or simply out of laziness, became a habit.

Finding My Style – Fashion Friday

Color – Texture – Fiber  These are things I love. Before taking up art journaling I knit, I crocheted, I sewed, I embroidered and I beaded. I made paper from pulp.

Recycling – Stamping and Printing Sunday

Recycling – Stamping and Printing Sunday

Pinterest is such a wonderful tool for learning new techniques. Using the styrofoam packing from the grocery store to create stamps is just one of the brilliant ideas that can be found through Pinterest.
