Inside My Art Journal, Disney and Snow.....

At the end of last year I took a online class called 30 Days In Your Journal and really, really enjoyed it. I was determined to start off my new year journaling this way--10 minutes a day while making art at the same time. Well so far so good......remember this I posted at the beginning of the year....
this is what it looked like by the end of the week....I pixelated the journaling as I am being very "true" in my writing and want to keep it private.
Here are the next few pages....
For the week above (which was last week) I knew I would have alot to journal about so I made a flip out page in the book with just some gaffer tape.
**A long, long time ago I bought a set of Disney clear stamps at Target....I knew that some day they would be used, LOL! I used Sakura Souffle pens to color in the images.
And here is this far....
As you can probably see last week we went to Disney World for a quick 5 day trip. My husband had to go to a conference so the kids and I went with. Each of the kids also brought a friend. Having four teens with really made for a fun time. So sad that it was such a quick trip.
And in other news......we came home to some snow that had fallen while we were gone, but today.....LOTS and LOTS of snow. Did I ever mention I hate SNOW!!!! Well I am publicly stating that I HATE SNOW.....
This is Alexx and my husband clearing the way.....I, on the other hand, am inside taking this picture through the window.....
Have a Great Weekend!!!


  1. Maria this is absolutely incredible!!! What an amazing book you will have by the end of the year. So creative!! I hope you had a terrific trip and I'm with you on the snow, although, I will admit I DO love the occasional snow day!!!

  2. You are just so creative. Beautiful family!

  3. Oh my word, Maria. That journal is truly awesome.

  4. Beautiful journal, fantastic art work and nice family and friends photo from Disney, the snow pictures, well, I'm not crazy about snow either, we did get a few more inches and I think that's enough for the year.

    Hugs, Lori m
