Journaling from the heART...


Hey, hey, everyone!

A little rainy-day post today...I wasn't going to blog today but I sort of felt like it, and haven't gotten to show all of my art journaling pages yet so I thought I would...

First of all, I just have to say how absolutely AWESOME my friend and boss, Marie is.  Not only does she encourage everyone to start art journaling, but she believes in it so much that she actually is sponsoring a 24-week journey with a prize at the end, even if you do not use a single TGF stamp on your journaling pages.  How amazing is she?!?

The Greeting Farm is truly...TRULY my heart.  I am reminded of this daily...because of the people who support it, the amazing talent of ALL the people who share with us, the sweet spirit of the stamping community, and the devotion to promoting a small business who otherwise wouldn't be able to thrive without such wonderful support.  Most of all, think it is amazing to work for someone such as her and be able to put my own heart and soul into everything I do, as well as being free to design using other stamps as well so that I never feel creatively 'stunted.'   She really rocks, and I don't know two people in the world who work better together than her and I  <3

On that note,  I am so happy to support this awesome challenge issued by The Greeting Farm and am also excited to be participating!    Here is a page I created a few weeks ago for our "paper piecing" challenge.  I think the page TRULY speaks for itself: 

The "Hanging Heart" stamp is from Stamping Bella and is one of my favorite backdrops to use for Art Journaling.  If you are REALLY into it, you can also participate in the Stamping Bella Art Journaling Monday challenges/tutorials over on Bloggabella.   :)

That's about it for me today, but I'll be back tomorrow with two posts so thanks as always for staying with me...gonna be a busy week over here!  <3
