Opportunity Knocks!

Here it is - 2011!  A new year without a blemish on it.  I made a resolution to journal more often (daily - I doubt it) and to lose 5 lbs.!  It's out with the old and in with the new.  Here are my first efforts in my journal endeavor.

An original drawing on journal page

Inkjet print of one of my drawings glued to journal page

The most unexpected and awful news just arrived.  I can't share yet - too painful.  I'm hoping by the time I post next, the news will be good and I will be happy again!  Right now I'm singing the blues and feel really low...


and I'm still working on the 5lbs!!

For more inspiration, go to Pink Saturday.

Your art is amazing and I'm a fan. I looked at your website and you are so talently blessed. Keep it up, don't let anything get you down; keep journaling -- there's a story to tell. I hope you stick with Pink Saturday and I really look forward to seeing more of your posts. Your muse is super-spiritual and in sync. When I'm feeling blah, I flip it around; literally, journal just the opposite and watch what happens. Blessings Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com

Ah, I'm sorry about the bad news, and I'll be praying that all is well.

I do love your journal. And, good luck with the five pounds.
