New journal work

Time away from Facebook has proven productive. It's helped to focus my energies and new ideas and possibilities are revealing themselves to me. I am finding being Still is really the most important time in my day. I am still when I'm walking the in the mornings and the the studio....basking in the sun on the porch. These moments are the ones I cherish the most right now. My time spent with God through Stillness is.....IS......

There is aliveness in quiet.

Disney Journal Pages!

I'm back with another update from Disney. I wanted to share with you all the journal pages I created while we were there. It truly was a beautiful balance between experiencing the parks, savoring all the cherished moments with fellow creatives, and diving into your journal. I just had to show off the journals a bit too. The first picture is of the cover. Tangie's husband Dave created these beauties for each of the participants. By the way, if you really LOVE these journals…(I know I do) then you can get your very own HERE.

Dave made all the journals that were constructed with watercolor paper and Disney golden book covers. In heaven. I wanted to do a twirl around the courtyard (like the little girl in a princess costume that I saw earlier that day....she twirled and twirled with no worries. She was just being. She didn't have a care in the world. And at that moment I believed she was the happiest person on the planet. And I was as well, witnessing that beauty of a child's wonder!)
