I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
My desk is rather sparse in creativity yet again this week. I found myself spending more time working on
lesson plans than art journaling. Hoping
a balance will settle in soon.
On my desk you will see a newly organized box of postcards and photos. I participate in several monthly swaps and found myself spending too much time sorting through them. Now they are organized by theme with dividers. There are 2 newly purchased Martha Stewart Halloween decorating kits. I quite decorating once the boys grew older but I thought I might try putting up some simple ones this year. The journal is from the group Your turn In My Art journal. The theme is I don’t know these people! Scrapbooking unknown loved ones. The idea is to use found photos of
strangers and make up names and a life story.
I found these photos but have no story line. So my dear friends, I am enlisting your help! Anyone have suggestions for good story idea?
Two familiar themed swaps were due this week. They both are
part of an ongoing series.

I have been using this new app, Distress FX, so fun! I took this photo of a tree on a trip up north to find out more about my mom’s family (Read Here to see the old photos). This is some of the fun I had with the app.
The only drawback to this app is it does not allow you to track you favorite effects and textures.
