Hiya sistahs.. I am SO productive this week.. LOL it’s only TOOSDAY. But still.. you know those days where you feel you got SO MUCH DONE? that’s how I feel 🙂
Today’s theme for AJ TOOSDAY was this inspiration pic:
I just loved the texture, the color and how the book will look on it’s side with that “crunchy” page LOL
I found a bag of buttons and goodies yesterday and had a FIELD day with my page.. I also couldn’t resist doodling my signature little girl in one of the frames 🙂
Ok for next week’s theme… LOL.. journal your STARBUCKS order.. draw the cup.. make a page about how coffee/tea makes you feel.
If you don’t drink coffee or tea? It’s a free day where you can choose your own theme and submit!
Have fun sistahs!

My sistahs, is it just me or are the weeks flying by????
Here we are again with Art Journaling toosday! And the theme this week was to use a piece of hand painted, printed, sketched paper in your collage….
Here i sketched a little protective mamabear watching her little ones… I guess I am projecting, as I had an “issue” at Jayden’s camp today and they heard me ROAR! LOL.. so this is what came out. Instead of using a printed piece of paper, I used a hand drawn sketch of the girl.. I watercolored her and then placed her gently (don’t wanna piss her off LOL) on top of a collage. I added the studio calico little veneer birds (WHICH I LOVE).. and stamped a word and a number and VOILA! a page in my Moleskine journal was born :).. ah I feel better now. Sometimes words don’t depict my feelings.. sometimes an image says it all. I love her fishy lips..LOL
Great pages this week sistahs!! Next week’s theme?? hmmmmm

mwah to da sistahs who love round things including me 🙂
And I feel da MOJO coming back 🙂 I do!!!! YEEHAAAA!!! I made a mess on my table much to Ryan’s chagrin
and I let my collaging instinct go CUH-RAZY! Came up with lots of neat pages you may have seen on my instagram feed.. but will show some goodies throughout the week. I decided that I NEED to be crafty EVERY DAY.. for my sanity.. I can’t recommend it enough.. whether it means sticking something down, scribbling, writing, decorating your calendar… whatever.. one NEEDS this.. or maybe it’s just moi? LOL
Ok this week’s theme for AJ TOOSDAY (on TOOSDAY I might add).. is to make a GRID. Grids are phenom for card layouts, scrapbooking pages, art journaling pages.. as noisy and as messy as I am, I enjoy a clean nice page.. weird no? Sometimes I need the “BUSY” but most times I see myself needing some white space to rest my eyes… whats your style?
Ok here is my page. Have I mentioned I am obssessed with security envelopes and their patterns? If any of my sistahs get some good ones from their bills with interesting patterns, feel free to mail me some :).. I love (1) mail and i love (2) security envelopes (oh have I mentioned that? LOL). So on my grid, I punched out 9 squares of security envelopes that I have collected and purchased for a clean background.. added a vintage foil star, bingo number and vintage image and a wee teeny tiny piece of tape stapled to the top to balance it out… I have really been
interested OBSSESSED with vintage photos.. but not just any photo.. photos that speak to me.. faces that express a feeling I am feeling.. whether it be personal, friendship, family.. This photo just caught my eye.. a page dedicated to my besties :).. clean and simple.
Aren’t these fabby? DON’ T YOU WANNNNNNA JOIN IN???????? Come on….. ya know ya wanna….
next week’s theme which was something that helped me get my mojo back….
Ok so your challenge this week? due next TOOSDAY? Make a page of patterns and then use it as collage fodder on a page…. ok? clear as mud?
Don’t forget bellarific friday this week also.. it’s a sketch which would be perfect for an art journal too! I am gonna play and you can too.. it doesn’t only have to be a card on bellarific friday but it has to follow our theme.. and use a bella stamp

Hiya sistahs 🙂
I know I haven’t been the greatest bloggista and I encourage you to follow me on Instagram.. I am very active on there and it is just easy to show it all in a picture.. know what I mean bean?
I will try to make more of an effort here but I am still trying to keep my head above watah (water)…
So our theme for this week was to use a bit of NEON on our page.. I just love neon paints 🙂
I just love AJ mondays on Wennsdays and sometimes on TOOsdays LOL
next week’s theme is a color combo.. bought these at michaels.. put them all together and it has been inspiring me..
And in case you were wondering what my current favorite song is.. LOL cuz I know you are… it’s this one 🙂 Enjoy
Sorry for the delay sistahs.. I hope you are all good 🙂
I am starting to see a bit of the light 🙂 IF you are waiting for a shipment and have not heard from me, please do NOT hesitate to contact me n’k?
ok So this week’s theme was to use the NEGATIVE of a punch on your page.. so here goes!
I just love when people participate so I can get a wee glimpse into their lives… I hope more people can participate 🙂
Next week’s theme.. USE A NEON COLOUR… I LOVE neon and love to scribble it somewhere on my page 🙂
As always you don’t have to follow this challenge… you can submit anything!
Don’t forget BELLARIFIC FRIDAY THIS WEEK!
Hiya sistahs.. a very happy Passover to all who celebrate with me 🙂
So today’s theme for Art Journaling TOOSDAY was a free for all… let’s see what da aj sistahood came up with shall we?
I decided to use our new DUDA stamp YOURS TRULY… I so love that stamp so much!
I also was playing around with my art supplies and found a new technique for colouring in mixed media which I will share at a later date.. so here’s my spread with ribbon and scribble and oil pastels and vintage music sheets…
I just love to peer into other people’s journals.. is that wrong?????
Ok as you may know.. every week is an “open week”… I just want you to play and have fun.. I will assign a prompt and if it inspires you, then use it, if not, just make any page that inspires you and send it in easy peasy n’k?
Next week’s theme is to use the “NEGATIVE” of a punch… so if you punch out a heart, I want you to use the frame of the heart or the “heart hole” in the paper… make sense? or you can draw a shape, cut it out and use the negative…
clear as mud?
Don’t forget Bellarific Friday this week 🙂

Hiya sistahs! I was buried under orders and trying so hard to see the light and got a little nudge from our very own sistah pinky saying.. ummmm lady.. I need something to read 🙂

So for AJ TOOSDAY I asked you to make a page with flowers… I need to see spring somewhere.. cuz it ain’t outside 🙁
So for today’s theme I took out my watercolors which I have been playing with lately and took out a piece of yummy watercolor paper and went a bit “mental”.. LOL.. But I LOVE the results!
Here’s my page
