We went out for dinner at DiCarlos in Rancho Mirage again this evening. Fabulous as usual. Their early bird special is a great deal - a good sized salad, a choice of 5 entrees and garlic toast for $ 9.95. What's not to like?
I've been working in my journal and trying to perfect some of my pen work. Still lots of room for improvement. I'm working on a journal page a la Teesha Moore. Not sure how it's going to turn out. I'm pushing my boundaries and working outside my comfort zone. It should be interesting!
Gotta run. Caio!

I brought my journal and some journalling supplies with me and I've worked in it a little. Plan to do more tonight.
Must run, I have to make some phone calls and then off to bed. Caio!

Well now. There’s a warm cozy thought isn’t it? Why is it that some people need to be soooo very hateful and selfish. Some days it takes all I have to not toss them out the 6th floor window – no need to open the window, I’ll just drop kick them out and watch them sail through the atmosphere. Lovely thought, that is!!
Work is crazy busy – I’ve had a couple of issues that have been ongoing for a long time now. It’s been both emotionally and physically exhausting, however, I think it’s over now so that’s a good thing ! I’m looking forward to starting fresh in 2014, putting all the bad stuff behind me.
Art and journaling were shoved on the back burner for a good bit of November and all of December. I think that December should be 60 days instead of 31 – I never seem to have enough time! I hate it when Christmas becomes “just another job” ! I’m looking forward to working in my journal again. I have got to learn to manage that better.
The countdown for Palm Springs has started – 43 more sleeps. I soooo need a holiday!

I’ve tried to post a couple of times, usually when I’m really tired, and had nothing but problems. So now I”m back when I’m at least half way awake to try again.
Work has been really busy, and with all the interruptions, and new tasks, I don’t ever seem to get anything accomplished. Add to that the Christmas season and problems with difficult people – well you get the picture.
My workroom look like it’s been vandalized! I can’t find anything and I’m constantly moving things from one pile to another. I have way too many “treasures” – “treasures” translate to “stuff” – and trust me, I have way too much of it. Right now I have other things I should be doing, however this place is such a mess that I can’t ignore it any longer. I am making some headway, and I will purge a few things over the next several weeks. I’ve waited too long - I think it’s too close to Christmas? Hmmm – will need to think about that! Anyway, I will eventually post some pictures of my re-vamped studio – If I can keep it clean long enough!!!

I love journalling but I do struggle with it. I think I've said before - for the most part I'm fine with the backgrounds. I just seem to really struggle from that point on. Anyway, I've been able to complete a couple of spreads that I'm reasonably pleased with and which I'm willing to share.
This one was completed at the end of September. It really wasn't part of my challenge, however, I think it kind of planted the seed. So, here we go..........

I broke down and bought a new printer. I went with a Canon Pixma. So far I'm happy with it. It was reasonably priced, it's fairly fast and is far less noisy than the HP which seemed to be constantly shuffling and bumping and raising a racket! So far so good.
For the month of October, I've challenged myself to work in my journals every single day. I don't need to complete a page every day, but my challenge is that I must work in my journal every day. Today is October 2nd and I've managed to complete one page so I'm very pleased with myself. Woohoo! I'll post soon so you can see what I've accomplished.
For now, I'm off to bed. I've had a busy couple of days and the rest of the week looks like it will be the same.
