Happy NEW Year!!

Another new year....hope everyone had a great holiday and is ready for a new start. My God-Daughter made these yummy gingerbread boys and girls. Happy cookies.



My plan for this year is to start an art journal ....or two. I tried to start one last year but never got it off the ground. I found this old journal that my father had and thought it would be a good starting point for a larger art journal. I also have a smaller moleskin that I plan to use.

The pages look like this. I will glue them together to make a stronger page then cover them with layers of fun stuff.


This is the seal on the front. It was for keeping expenditures for the VFW. Only a few pages were written on and a few were torn out. Wish me luck. I also plan to make more paintings and art quilts. It is going to be a good year....now if I could only shake this virus! Yep, still have it.



Wishing all of you and very happy and ARTful New Year!!

Good luck on the art journal - that is one of my goals this year too...along with eating more locally and just being more active...

The cookies look yummy. Good luck on the art journal. Let me know if you need vintage pictures of soldiers. I have extras along with the family ones.

Great to see you posting--Glad we are all home from the holiday travels & ready to tackle 2009. Best of luck on the journal--I keep one going all the time but it is mostly events, thoughts and lists! Hope to see you soon.
