I'm sitting at my most favorite place in the world, Laguna Beach. Lauren and I have a tradition of escaping here while miss Brenna is away at summer camp. This year I am so grateful to be able to continue the tradition. Especially with Lauren getting older, the time spent with her is especially sweet.
While she is meeting some friends for breakfast, I am continuing to work on the art journal I began in Pam Garrison's class.
One thing I am trying to focus on while working on this journal is having fun! Pam was so encouraging in getting us to realize that this doesn't have to be a sellable work of art. It's intention is to get us to experiment, play, discover, and create. I find my mind filled with thoughts that I want to put down on the paper. Every time I sit down with the journal I tell myself, "just put something down- just begin and see what happens. The creativity will come or it won't. If it does, be thankful and enjoy it. If it doesn't, get up and enjoy something else!"
What are you sitting down to today? Or are you getting up and enjoying something else?

Never mind, I'll tell you.
I was privileged to spend the day at Jenny Doh's house.
No, really!! I did!!!
I could hardly believe it myself, but there I was at 8:45 in the morning, pulling up to her house like it was something I always did.
When Jenny welcomed me into her home, I felt SO welcomed it was like I had Ben there before.
There I was with 11 other women, ready to take a class on art journaling with Pam Garrison.
I almost burst into tears when I found my spot at the table-it was thy amazing to be with so many like minded people. No PMS or anything, I promise!!!
I'm happy to report that I managed to hold it together and learn a ton and had a fabulous time.
I'm back to posting from my I-phone and I'll tell you more about that tomorrow. Since I don't know how to link this way, here are Jenny and Pam's websites:

We do have a fair amount of cleaning and sorting to do with all the racer and crew's gear, but we will be doing all this in familiar territory!!
