The Happenings....

I have just not been so good at blogging each day. I have kept my promise to make art each day, but I'm just not so good at getting my photos loaded up and blogging about what I've been up to. But, today is the day that I'm getting it done.
I am busy preparing for a demo (A Journey with my Journal) I am doing at Jerry's Artarama in Raleigh on this Saturday, Jan. 24th. If you live in the area, I would love for you to drop by and say hello.

This is a new page I've done....
I was listening to Jim Rohn the other day and he spoke of words that could change your life....
One was Disgust, and the other was Resolve. Disgust...."being fed up". And Resolve..."A promise to never give up". That struck a chord with me. Resolve. Imagine how different our lives would be if we made a promise to ourselves to never give up on something. What if we promised to not give up on our wanting to learn a new technique...maybe even drawing. What if we made a promise to not give up on our dream of becoming a "successful" artist.....or our dream of going back to school to earn another degree....or get our homes uncluttered. What ever it is that you have in your heart to do....what would happen if you PROMISED to not give up on it. Give it a try....Aren't you worth it!!!
I appreciate your stopping by to my little corner of the world. Make it a great day.
Until next time,

Hi Ophelia. WOW - love this journal page. Disgust and resolve - perfect prompts to encourage accomplishment.
Sabrina and I are going to try to make it to see you at Jerry's on Saturday. Not sure how the day is going to pan out as we have a bunch of stuff to get done this weekend - but it's on our list if we can eek out some "fun time."
