When I first started my art journal it was just something I was inspired to do by my friends. It was something I wanted to try and an opportunity to craft outside my comfort zone. In time, I realized that my art journal was also a great way to dial it down a notch on… Continue reading Coloring Outside the Lines (#iPPP)
I have long since admired the art journals of my very talented friends, such as Cheri, Margie, and Sarabeth. Drooling over their beautiful pages, I secretly longed to start an art journal of my own. Too bad you're not artistic, I told myself. For reasons unknown, I woke up this morning with a totally different… Continue reading Jumping in with both feet
This is the face of happiness.Hey na, hey na, my mojo's back!Hi, friends. I hope all of you in the US had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Mine was GLOR-I-OUS.

Since rediscovering my natural hair color in the past year (it's apparently brown, in case you were as curious as I was), I have begun to notice some ahem, highlights.No, I'm not talking about the red that sometimes makes an appearance after I've been out in the sun. I'm talking about the shades of grey that have… Continue reading Shades of grey*
The ladies at Girl Talk Thursday are venting today. Feeling extremely grateful for our recent change of fortune, I cannot in good conscious kvetch about anything personal, but I do have a bone to pick about the Olympics. You're probably just as happy as Hubby that the Olympics, and thus my obsessing, are almost over… Continue reading Can’t we all just get along?

Is a certain level of arrogance needed to do some things in life, like become an Olympic champion?These are the questions that floated through my head as I watched Yevgeny Plushenko this week. I bow down to the guy's skating prowess; nothing can take away from the fact that he's… Continue reading The fine line
