Very quiet

Not much excitement going on in my little corner of paradise.  Christmas is looming - why am I always so surprised at how quickly it comes around again?  We expect Christmas to be very low key again this year.  No family here, just the two of us, and of course our family of friends.  It's such a busy time of year.

Store stock is pretty much all caught up and delivered.  I have a couple of more designs to deliver this week and then that's done for another year.  Today I need to get caught up on some ATC's that are late and then of course start my own Christmas cards to send out.  I'm also in a swap so need to come up with a fairly simple, but equally stunning :) card design to send out for the swap.

My journalling has been almost non existent for the last several weeks.  However, I did sign up this month at Art Journalling Every Day so I need to get my stuff in gear and journal!  I have a hard time with journalling.  I can't seem to separate the "art" part from the "journalling" part.  I'm hung up on the idea that the art has to match or support the journalling I'm going to do.  I seem to spend a heck of a lot of time surfing the net and checking out all the fabulous journal pages but don't ever seem to be able to actually do a page.  Very frustrating.  I think my new plan is that I'm not even going to think about the journalling part - just focus on trying to do cool art?  Guess we'll have to see.

Gotta run.  I've done lots of cards but forgot to post before I delivered them so don't have anything ready to post right now.  Hope to have some new stuff in the next little while.
