Sweet Memories

Made some wonderful memories with family that came in from out of town this past week! Add four kids to our three and the house was full of non-stop activity! Shopping, rowdy bowling games, bike rides, picnics and paddles boats at the lake filled our days. The visit culminated in sharing the divine decadence of smores over the BBQ! I love that space where time gets suspended as you let go of your normal routine and release the day to new adventures and leave the laundry and housework for another day!

We are definately in the wind down to the end of summer with getting everyone ready for school etc! I snuck in some time in the studio today and created an original altered book/journal which I listed on Ebay today. I have kept all my own journals since I was a small child. Life is an incredible mystery and my own personal journals have bore witness to the continueing story of my own soul. Its a miraculous thing to see how God has been weaving your life's story as you look back over the pages of recorded memories, questions, mountaintop experiences, struggles, and heartaches. He has always been trying to reveal or teach me something through the themes that spill across the pages!

Family times are the best. I miss those days when my kids were young and we spent so many wonderful times together. At least the memories will always be there.

Love your new journal. It truly reflects the elegance and beauty that you put into all of your pieces.

Such a beautiful journal! My 4 kids start back to school this week. More solitude on the one hand, but more running around on the other!
I have added your link to my blog.

I am new to the blog world and found yours via my friend, Susan Tuttle. I am awed by the beautiful collage. And can't wait to read more on "Healing Expressions". I was inspired just by reading about you and your reasons for blogging.

Ah s'mores, the real flavour of summer :) We're also savouring the final days of summer, it's a bittersweet thing.

Really lovely journal cover - it's fabulous!
