New Writing Journal and "No More Excuses" Workshop...

I got a new writing journal from Papaya Art, and I could not POSSIBLY be more excited about it! Isn't it beautiful???

The beautiful artwork is by Anahata Katkin. Now, I did just make a whole bunch of handmade art journals, and I love working in them, but this is a whole different kind of journal. It was made specifically for writing, and you can SOOOO tell! The paper in this journal is sooooo smooth, that my pen just glides across the page effortlessly. It makes writing pure joy. The pages are beautifully designed, and the paper is nice and thick, so there is no show through. In fact, I love this journal so much, that I went back to Papaya and ordered some more!!!

Anyhoo, that brings me to the new workshop I signed up for. It's called "No More Excuses," and it's taught by Gina Armfield of Atelier Artistico. I was looking for something to put a little pizazz into my writing journal, and this turned out to be the perfect thing! The workshop gives you all these fun and light-hearted assignments on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The workshop brings you through a whole year! Here's what I've been up to so far...(p.s. you can also get a sense of how beautiful the pages are in the papaya journal)

:-) August is green grass if you don't live in Texas. My yard is begging for some rain.

Most people don't have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims. See the link below for more info.
