vacation mode :)

Four more days until I leave and I can't focus on anything else!  This vacation is long overdue and all I can think of, is sitting by the sea with my art journal and this is what I have been doing for the past two weeks..preping pages. of course I'm also thinking about swimming and getting a decent tan, but journaling is my dream vacation...isn't that funny?.. but I am an artist after all..   oh I will be taking loads of pictures, so be prepared lol! I am going to bore you for sure.
At this point I would like to thank Kristin for the fabulous summer of colour. I'm going to miss that for sure!! so Kristin.... and I am sure,  lots of other artists would agree, would you pleassse  come up with something for Fall?!  you were such a wonderful host!!  I didn't have time preparing for the last part of the show and tell, please forgive me, but my mind is already on vacation mode :)  thank you for this and all the other artists for your beautiful comments and support!! 


These are some of the pages I'll be working on.

This is coming with me too! I've been working on this punch needle embroidery since 2008! lol. The title is " Transformation"   I must finish it this year!
I wish you all a happy rest of the Summer :) and lets all come back this Fall, rejuvenated and with new inspiration!!

  9. Have a wonderful vacation! I've just been skimming back through a few posts I'd missed and was reminded about your Bon Jovi concert. Funnily enough last night I was trying to pick some music to listen to and settled on Crossroads (their greatest hits). I was singing away with my headset on - out of tune I am sure!!
    Loving your creations as always my friend. Looking forward to seeing what the beach inspires in you.
