Healing Art Journal

I won't bother you with the details of the past few months, but suffice it to say it's been challenging. A roller coaster ride of ups and downs that have left me feeling emotionally exhausted and physically drained.

The idea of an art journal has appealed to me for a long time, now. I've started a few. They are buried, somewhere in a box, with all my really important stuff, like my steel drum and my red wig. Recently, however, new inspiration has arrived in the form of a YouTube video series by Suzi Blu, or, as she is known to her fans and friends on YouTube...suziblutube. Suzi inspires artists and would-be artists to believe in themselves and just create...something we all struggle with, from time to time. She also shares lots of tips and how-to's, in her very colorful and free-flowing videos...and there's quite a few of them. I hope you will visit her channel and check them out!

Since watching, Suzi, and all the wonderful artists on YouTube, who are sharing their work and experience, I have begun a new "Healing Art Journal". If you click on that link, it will take you to a page with more information and pictures. It is really doing it's job and I'm feeling better than I have in a long time.

I would also like to acknowledge Emily Townsend from "Creative*Art*Journal", one of my favorite blogs and a wonderful source for art journaling tips. Visiting her blog has been very informative.

I would really love for any "links-followers" to check out the new Website design at I've been changing it, quite a bit, so comments or suggestions may be helpful.
