I am sorry that I don't talk more on my blog!  I am a gal of few words when it comes to typing.  I never quite know what to say.  Some bloggers have the gift of gab, but not me.

I worked on a piece over the last few days and I wanted you to see it.  I think it turned out ok!

2014 Calendar Printable "Reveal"

I spent all day working on the computer.... my comfort zone:)  I created some printable calendars for my planner.  I wanted something that was elegant and not too bold.

Shelves Are Up

The Ikea shelves are up but they are not capable of holding anything with a bit of weight so hubs will be adding brackets under them tonight!  Woot!  I can't wait to bring up the rest of my supplies!

I will have a picture for you later on tonight if it's not too late!

My Muse Is Gone

I have been trying to do some art in my journal and I just can't find my place... my muse is gone!  It has been gone for quite a while.

Maybe it's because I've been struggling with stuff!  Mind stuff.  You know the kind of thoughts that wander and just can't keep your mind on one thing.

I am thinking I should be doing something else, not art.  It feels like I'm lost and don't know which way to turn.  Something stifling my ideas.  Can't put them on paper.  Although, I have never been a writer in my journal.   I want to be, but just can't find the words.

I have had to move up to the kitchen due to water in our basement and hubs has the TV so loud, I can't concentrate!  Do I blame him?  No.  I have just lost my muse.... hopefully it will come back soon.

Praying In Color

The book "Praying in Color" finally arrived today!  I am so excited to get started.  I know there was a lady on YouTube who was doing this a few years ago, but I can't seem to find her....

Walking On Water: Reflections On Faith And Art

I noticed a number of my friends on Facebook were reading this and then art journaling about it, so I thought I would too!

Should be here in about a week, horray!

Here is the book....

Walking On Water: Reflections On Faith And Art
by Madeleine L'Engle

In Walking On Water, Madeleine L''Engle addresses the questions, What makes art Christian? What does it mean to be a Christian artist? What is the relationship between faith and art? Through L''Engle''s beautiful and insightful essay, readers will find themselves called to what the author views as the prime tasks of an artist: to listen, to remain aware, and to respond to creation through one''s own art.

This is the book for me for sure!  I am excited to get it!


Inner Excavation

My book finally arrived today!  Now I can play catch-up with Effy!

Life Book 2013 - Working On Getting Caught Up!

I have so much on my plate right now with the moving of my studio and various classes I am taking!  One of the classes on Life Book 2013 where Danita's class had featured a video called "Beyond The Prison of Beliefs" and I loved it!  I have added it to my blog for future reference!  Who knows, you may like it too!

My Kitchen Studio - 4

More pics from my "kitchen studio"....

 I just can't live without my printer!  I am a print freak!  Love to print all my own collage material :)

We moved this caddy up against the wall, it is easier to walk by it now.  Our front door is showing here too!  What a shock for everyone coming over to see this space instead of an oak table and chairs!

My Kitchen Studio - 3

I have to blog about my new "kitchen studio" because it is filling up fast!  I have been moving things into the drawers of my cubbies, but not enough space for me to keep my Silhouette Cameo hooked up.  I will need to move it when I need it, but that's not so bad.

I have the webcam ready for Ustream, I haven't checked it yet but will get it!

Here are more pics of how it looks today...

Water is waiting for me to start painting!  I am needing a fix!  LOL!

My Kitchen Studio

I am working hard at moving my studio! Water in the basement has left our carpet smelling bad, so everything has to be cleared out in that area so we can rip out the carpet.

My studio is now in the kitchen!  Can you believe it?  I am now on the main floor and we sold our kitchen table and will now be eating on the island in the kitchen.

Hubs put together my "Ikea Expedit Desk Combo" and we brought up my cubbies, but there is so much to do yet!  I took some pics of my "Kitchen Studio".

I have it done!  Horray!

Effy Wild - BLOGALONG!

Effy Wild is having a 30 day blogalong.  This means to post to my blog 30 times in August!

We have had some water issues in our basement so I am moving my art space to our kitchen.  I'm sure it will take me a month to get it set up and I thought I would get on the bandwagon and blog about it.
