The Best Husband Ever!!

Okay, so here's the scoop! Dan booked a cruise to the Mediterranean! In secret, well, sort  of in secret because once he hit that confirm button, he just couldn't keep it in. (I just want to squeal and run all over the house dancing just writing that information!) Beware, this post will have lots and lots of exclamation points! I am soooooo excited. This is a dream come true for me. I have always wanted to see Italy, Greece, the pyramids. And we will be seeing them all in September. We will fly to Rome and then cruise to Rome, Naples, Athens, Rhodes, Ephesus, Cairo and Messina. 12 days of touring. I know this will be whirlwind but I love the fact that I will get to taste a little bit of all those different places. Almost like at Taste of the Mediterranean tour.....little samples at each stop! Anyway, we're both just so excited...this will be the honeymoon that Hurricane Francis postponed, better though! See how those things just work out? We were just going to spend a few days at the beach....now I have twelve days of foriegn ports!

The latest art journal piece. I feel like lately I have been reading and thinking more about art than actually doing it! For some reason I don't seem to be able to concentrate long enough to finish a large piece. I have a store that is willing to sell my art on consignment but I haven't done anything to take to them yet. I think it is fear that is keeping me from doing anything. Putting my art "out there" is scary. What if no one likes it?

The "perfect" Journal page....

This is another art journal page that I love. I originally went through and created several pages as backgrounds so I could journal on them later. But some of them I liked so much I was afraid to "ruin" them by writing on them. This is one of those pages. I just love the colors and the way the layering just looks right. So I guess it will just stay "as is" until the perfect moment that needs to be "journaled" appears. (Spell check just let me know that journaled is not a word. I think it should be.)

Art Journal pages

This is probably one of my favorite Art Journal pages. There is just something about it that reminds me that joy is to be found in the everyday happenings. It also reminds me that I am spirit and I am free!
