I made rather a mess of my muse but that’s just what I’d be like if I wore lipstick! #womanunleashedretreat

The Happiness Project 2014

I’ve been struggling with this image for a year or so, I think because I have never drawn a face as beautiful as this under the guidance of an american artist, Suzi Blu. It was the first thing I did in a new journal, so it was a shame that I felt I couldn’t continue to use the rest of the journal, until I had finished this one! Anxiety had built up about it but recently I’ve had a small operation which has made me have to slow down and rest for a few weeks. I’ve been able to think about it and decided to complete it as an autumn picture, especially when I found the beautiful quote by the British poet John Donne. It has made me feel happy, so I feel I’ve given myself the permission to carry on my journal with the Happiness project and other journalling too!

Journal your Christmas 2012

I have been joining in Shimelle’s class since December 2008 and have really enjoyed journaling, making plans and designing the pages. I didn’t finish last year, as I was going through a bad bout of depression…..my children came up on Christmas Day to make dinner for us all….so I didn’t blog at all and only made a few pages. Looking back at the other years, 2009 was the year I made the best record of what I’d actually done in my journal…two Smilebox presentations showing each page. I hope those of you who have shared your Christmas before will enjoy it and those who are new this year will find some inspiration. The layouts are all 8×8 inches, some double spread, most single. Thank you for visiting and ENJOY! 🙂
