No fear No guilt

Do you sometimes feel like you're putting your needs on the back burner in order to please others?  so people can say that you are doing the "proper" thing?... and then one day you finally "wake up"?!
This is what my first itsy bitsy book is about.
No fear, No guilt! 
Sometimes we just have to make that big leap, to be able to continue making small steps to find our happiness!
Where do you, find courage and strength?..  I am blessed to have the support of my grown up daughters and my dearest friends!

I say..let's vote to have "friendship day"!! to honour our friends!! yes?

Hope you've enjoyed my little art therapy book :)  Stay tuned for another one about Yellow and Shy..  meanwhile, my dear friend Terry is arriving today from Wash. DC to visit, and I get to see her tomorrow afternoon and my heart is just beating so fast!!  
one last thing before I go...tell your friends how much they mean to you! and share the love!! xoxoxoxo


  1. Such a great book Joanna. Totally agree about having a Friendship Day, what could be nicer. Have a great time with Terry and have a fab day. Hugs Annette x

  2. Oh my goodness! This is awesome - it could be made into a book?!
    I just wanted to tell you that I am taking your advice and doing a piece on Kendra! The sketch (fist pict.) is on my blog (and shh, she's pulling a dinosaur ;) and I will link to you when I finish her. Let me know if that's not okay and THANK you. . . xoxo

  6. You know Joanna... I have been following your blog for months and months, and I know I don't comment often, but I love your artwork. I am really drawn to the colours and the faces. I am so in love with your journal cover in your post of March 17. Here's my question to you, do you ever sell originals, would you ever consider doing an original like the one on your journal cover. I was just on Etsy and saw your prints come up. Would you consider painting one that I could use for my blog like your journal cover that said "It's an Average Life"? Will you let me know what you think?
