Directing Your Attention...

to 2  blogs that are inspiring me lately.  (You can always click on the top of my blog for links to some of my favorite blogs.)

The Storyteller -- How could I not know about this blog??   I have never seen anyone combine stamping and watercoloring the way she does.  Warning, plan on spending some quality time here.

Fill Your Paper With the Breathing of Your Heart -- Always lovely.  Always.

That's it. I did a mile on the treadmill.  A very s l o w mile.  I was off for a few days due to getting sick, but I'm fine now and back slogging away!


  1. okay, I popped over to Sanketi's blog and BAM...a coffee card. perfect.

    ..and yes, Taheerah always has lovely projects:)

    Thanks for this.

  2. How did I miss the fact that you started blogging again? I have 7 months to catch up on here. Silly me for believing you when you said you were leaving. Anyway, you're here so I will subscribe and start working through the archive.

    I also discovered The Storyteller just recently and I am very inspired by her work. I will have to check out your other suggestion.
    As to coming back to Angela's next year; I would love to. I'll have to look into it. As for coming to your house! Why not? I think we could have a lot of fun!
    Mood when I realised you were blogging again: Delighted

  3. Thanks very much Joan. Have loved your cards lately!!

  4. Hi Joan, I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better( I had no idea that you were sick) anyway, thanks for the 2 new blogs that I will of course check out. I hope you are enjoying the treadmill when your feeling well.


  5. Goodness me!! Thank you *so* much for listing me here Joan!! I am so honoured and you completely made my day!! <3

  6. Keep on swimming Joan. I recently lost 15 lbs. I survived a cruise in August and Thanksgiving. I just keep going back to the treadmill and I pick-up where I left off before I goofed on my healthy eating plan. Since it's 3:20 AM, I will take your advise and wait on those two recommended blogs.
    Happy Christmas.

  7. Wow! Thanks so much for mentioning my work, appreciate it! A fellow blogger sent me a note this morning about this...thanks again!

  8. Just found you again Joan. I missed your blog posts and love how you keep it real. Thanks for taking the time to share your art and your thoughts. Together they make a delightful package that I am very appreciate to get a chance to enjoy! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
