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 in the early morning light with Allistair napping in the better part of it. I had to continuously push his tail aside to keep from getting it glued to the art journal.
I bought this paper stack with the intention of creating a summer art
journal. I have been tucking things away
to put into it but did not have the inclination until this week to actually get
it started. I glued
scrapbook paper onto all of the pages except a handful in the middle in case I find
something else I want to use. This is
the first time approaching an art journal like this. Generally I complete one 2 page spread at a
time but because I’m getting such a late start I decided to try this approach.
Now the real work begins when I complete each of the pages. I will fill the pages with photos I take over the summer, ephemera from trips, magazine pictures and articles and quotes. Will be sure to post photos as i work on it.

I am catching up on the swaps I missed to have a the complete alphabet set. My partner liked the color purple and beading (not my thing) but I had a go at incorporating both for her ATC.
