My Art Journal

I have been doing a lot in my art journal lately.  The weather was so snowy and icy this past week that I got to spend some fun time trying out new painting techniques.  I used a pallet knife for the roses at the top and I was really happy with the way they turned out.  I also drew some more whimsical girls to add to the growing collection.  We are now back to regular school days.  The ice and snow have mostly melted.  It was so much fun.  We got just enough to have fun and be out of school for a couple of days.  Hope you are having a great week!  Thanks for stopping by my blog. ;0)

I haven't made much soap since Christmas but I have been painting in my art journal and trying to finish up some handmade journals I have started.  I thought I would post some of my paintings on here today.  Hope you are having a great week.  Happy New Year!

New Shabby Journal

I finished about 3 journals this week and here is my favorite one.  My daughter always teases me about my obsession over putting pink and blue together.  Really, I don't even mean to do it sometimes....lol.  Anyway, that being said, you can probably guess why I love this journal so much.   I listed it in my shop.  I have sold a lot of pink and blue journals so I know I am not the only one who loves the combination so much!

We are getting ready for Christmas around here.  I can't believe it is here in only a few more days.  I'm never ready for it to end.  I love this time of year. 

Merry Christmas!

I finally got everything listed in my etsy shop except for the cupcakes.  I rarely list those because I usually sell them locally.  I am so happy to be able to have some soaps in my shop.  I have only had journals and mini albums listed in there for several months.  I will also be listing more of those because I finally got the journals I had made bound to their covers.  It is nice to be able to offer different things in my shop but I sometimes wonder if I should have 2 different places for things because they are so totally different. ;0)  I will be taking pictures of the newest journals today so I can show you guys.  I hope you (dear readers who still visit this blog) are having a great week.  Thank you for stopping by!

Art Journal Pages

I have been trying to draw or paint something once a day for a while.  Sometimes I get to and other days I'm not so faithful.  Anyway, here are a few I have done over the last week or so. 

I am getting soap listed in my etsy  shop today.  I am so glad to be able to have some soap in there.  It's so nice to be back to making soap again.  I love seeing my soap shelf filled with pretty soaps.  I will have more soap pics this week.  Thanks for stopping by!
