My Sanity Keeper: Art Journaling

Things have been very crazy around here lately, from finding out that our 11 yr old Golden Retriever's crucible ligament has snapped and needs surgery...to trying to decide what to do about where to live (they are raising our rent a crazy amount) there are times when I'm barely keeping it all together.

Enter art journaling.  Well, God first, then art journaling.  ;)

I really should get better at posting what I create, but for the most part I'm busy in the making and doing and either forget to take a photo or I'm laying in bed at night thinking that I should have done so and am just too tired to do it!

Well, today I'm doing it...albeit late!  I made this art journal, my "For The Love Of Art" art journal, a couple of weeks ago for the Little Yellow Bicycle blog, you can read the post HERE.

They had sent me their new Naturals collection of products to work with which was really fun! Here's the cover...
