phew! My art journaling really slowed down a bit last week when family was visiting. My son Dallas, who turns 27 on Friday, arrived on Tuesday. My sister Kathy arrived on Thursday. My mom got a new puppy over the weekend and my art journal project pretty much melted into my table while we went swimming in the pool! I did a bit here and a bit there and finally pulled through and finished it up today. That felt good.
Julie Balzer, who is organizing this journal project, published a post last week which I so loved and helped me to not fret about stepping back and taking time away from art journaling every day. Read her post here. I think the sub title for her sign up for August should be "Stop the madness!" It is a really great post! Anyway, the time with my family was grand, even though we missed Liz, Dallas' fiance'. Their wedding is October 1st! Just today booked plane tickets for Steven and me to fly to CT for this occasion. We'll stay with my sister and we'll all attend Dallas and Liz's wedding in Northampton, MA together. It will be here before we know it!
