so very grateful


this week, the documented life project challenge is to
practice gratitude…..





so i thought about the things that are always on my heart….





but i quickly discovered there wasn't
 nearly enough space to journal on the page,
because i have SO much to be grateful for…..

and that definitely includes YOU!

your sweet blog visits, comments, and e-mails continue to
touch my heart, and i truly appreciate each and
every one of you so, so much!

 thank you, precious bloggy friends!   xox


{supplies:  moleskine planner, fabriano artistico 140 lb. HP paper,
derwent inktense pencils, pitt pens, PanPastel, 6B graphite pencil,
washi tape}


*******

i'm a firm believer that "practice makes perfect", 
so, i'm going to spend some time this summer practicing 
what i love to do most…..lettering.
and since i'll also be doing some travel, i've decided to give my 
"inspiration monday" series a bit of a break for a while,
but i'll be continuing on with the weekly DLP challenges.
 see you next week with a new journal page!
happy weekend to you!

I love how you've illustrated this sentiment. I love a life lived in gratitude. It's what makes it worthwhile, I think. Blessings,Carolynn

This might be my favorite thing you have done so far. I thought it would be really hard to top the art supplies house but pretty sure you just did!! Wow.

Hugs, Margaret xx

Love your Gratitude page! My husband and I kept a gratitude Journal. We'd curl up each evening and record blessings of the day. I stopped using it when he died. I just bought a journal for one of Martha Lever's classes. Maybe I'll use part of it as my Blessings Journal. My pan pastels just arrived and I'm eager to try them out.~Joni PS My daughter decided she doesn't want a mural or any paintings on the wall. She's going with her Pottery Barn frame groupings which are in every room.

I'm just beginning to explore the art journaling world, and am so glad to have found your blog! As soon as I can free up enough time to devote to it, I'll be signing up for one of your classes. Love your work!

I also love lettering. Your page is truly inspirational. Thank You for sharing. I am grateful for the documented life challenge and facebook because without the both of these i may never have stumbled across your blog.
Happy Crafting.

I finally started a gratitude journal, just writing one thing each day in a regular diary, nothing as stunningly beautiful as this, which really is worthy of framing and hanging on the wall!
