my heart

We were lucky enough to get our grand daughter for a couple of days while my son and his wife were traveling.  She is the most perfect little angel we have ever laid our eyes on.

She is just like her grandma and aunt….she loves puppies.

Having her spend time with my dad filled my heart with joy.

Family. There is nothing better than that.

Fast Car — art journal

Tracy ChapmanI don’t need to tell you that I have been a bad blogger lately….it is really obvious.  Summer comes and I see the light of day after a long dark Alaska winter and I lose it.  My blog is important to me.  I love how it documents my creative life.  It makes me accountable to stay on track with all my goals as well. So…..I am going to share some projects that I have been doing since I dropped off of the blogosphere the past couple of months.

This art journal I started after I started listening to Tracy Chapman on vinyl.  I forgot how much I loved her and I swear I played this record for two weeks straight.  So, I decided to do a Tracy Chapman art journal spread.
