Lorraine Bell  has created the perfect carry along book which has all the characteristics of a calendar/planner, an art journal/sketchbook, and a diary, notebook or smashbook.

Lorraine teaches a mini class showing you how to turn a 2014 moleskine planner into this fabulous book.  You can find out more about this class at this website:
I took Lorraine's mini class and joined the 'Documented Life Project'.  I am loving it.  A fun creative challenge is sent out weekly.  Here is the website where you can learn more about this project.

Here are some of my pages.

New Art Journal page

Somedays I just have to play.  That's when I create a journal page.  This page ended up being about lemons.  It all started with the magazine photo of the table and chairs.  There are lemon trees loaded with lemons all around the area so they were on my mind.

Where I Create

This is where I spend many hours working on my projects.  Here my work table is set up for watercolor.  I tend to work on and complete a project then clear off my table and set it up for a different project.
 I love these door knobs that I have hung aprons and bags on.  Besides being decorative they are very useful, I don't lose my aprons anymore.
 I have another table in front of a large window
The cabinets are full of supplies
Paper, punches and stamp cabinet. 
I have yarn in the plastic container on top of the cabinet

Early Handmade Birthday Card

Love this beautiful handmade Birthday card.  Every year my sister-in-law, Ann Arrowsmith, makes me a birthday card.  I have kept every handmade card I have received over the years and greatly appreciate the time and thought put into the creating of them.
