December 18th Journal Page and Exciting News!!!!!

I'm still catching up with my December Prompt-A-Day Pages. Did this yesterday with December 18th's prompt...


I have some super exciting news to share!!! Rachel Whetzel, author of the "A Year In The Life of an Art Journal" project, contacted me and asked if I would be interested in guest designing for this year's project!!!! I am thrilled and honored!!!! The theme this year is "Artful Amblings," and the format is going to be a little different - the changes are going to make it even more FUN!!! I will be guest hosting during July and December, but the first prompt will be going up on January 15th! We have a community forum this year, and the blog is already active with posts about the guest hosts. Come on over and check it out! I think it's going to be a lot of fun - and I hope you want to play along! You don't have to be an experienced art journaler - if you've never tried it but have wanted to - here's a great reason to start!

Hey, did you hear that Elizabeth Kartchner is teaming up with American Crafts to design a line of scrapbook products? It looks like it's going to be super cute! Check it out on the AC blog here, and Elizabeth's blog here.

That's all for today, but I will be back tomorrow with another update! Thanks for stopping by!
