Micki Wilde swap and a journal beginning

First of all, I wanted to share with you the BEAUTIFUL art piece I received yesterday from Micki Wilde!!

Micki had a wonderful plan to swap little pieces of her amazing artwork with anyone who was willing to do the same with her. Such a cool idea!

I sent this to Micki.


And this is the absolutely most wonderful piece I got from her!!


Isn’t she just beautiful!? Love it and thank you Micki!!

The amazing Serena Lewis inspired me to do a little watercolor art journal. My original plan was to try and paint a little something each day to reflect what’s going on in my life. Probably wasn’t a good idea to start it in December when I was swamped with Christmas plans? ha!

I bought one of these:


It’s fabulous!! Nice, sturdy paper and the size is just right, nothing too overwhelming.

Here’s the kind of pathetic part. It’s been 2 months, almost 3 and I’ve only done 4 pages!

003 004


It’s actually a fun thing to do, a great plan, I just need to keep up a little better with it. Thanks Serena (please visit her inspiring blog!) for inspiring me to try!

I love Micki's art! I was in the swap too! I can't wait to see when Micki does one big photo of all the art she got! It's going to be amazing to see! I love what you got and I love what you made Micki! Your art journal is beautiful! I started one too. I have only did one painting! So you are doing better than me! LOL! Big Hugs ;o)

Darla those journal pages are lovely! And I also love Micki's art! Such a beautiful one she sent you.

I am so bad about art journaling! I am taking a class now with lots of journaling. I am already stuck! lol

Hope you had a nice weekend!
