Continuing Update.

As well as the projects mentioned in prior post, I try to attend an Art Journaling class each month hosted by the lovely Michelle at her Snazzi Scrappin and Beads and led by the very talented and kind Janene.  She has been teaching these classes for about a year now and manages to come up with something fresh and different each month usually featuring a new product to learn about and play with.

I also participate in a number of art swaps.  I have swapped post cards for quite some time with two groups.  One is The International Post Card Swap hosted by Shannon Ganshorn from and the other I hope to continue is hosted by Hanna from
These are lots of fun and the anticipation waiting for returned mail is exciting.

And probably the last item on my list is my love of swapping ATCs.  I began doing these on Milliande's ning site but that has been discontinued and although some of the hosts of other types of swaps have moved to Face Book I haven't seen any ATC swaps and so I am doing a monthly swap challenge at  I really enjoy the communication and getting that lovely happy mail from overseas.

So that is how I fill my days and will try to do this more regularly.

Slack Blogger's Update

As usual I have filled my creative cup to overflowing.  I enrolled in a wonderful on-line art class called Soul Food which includes some wonderful and inspirational teachers.I haven't done a lot of these projects but I am faithfully downloading them and will get to them.

I also joined up with two free journaling groups The Documented Life Project hosted by five very fun ladies.  This consists of a weekly prompt to add to a bursting Diary/Planner.

The idea is to add your weekly work in response to the prompt as a tip in.

The other one I joined is Journal 52 another group with a weekly prompt which is run by Chelle Stein  For this project I am using an A5 journal and having fun.  I didn't do my cover, which was the first project because I am too messy and would ruin it by the end of the year.

The thing I am most excited and terrified of is that I am a part of a wonderful Art Journal round robin.  It is hosted by the wonderfully talented Louise from River Girl Art
I have done the very first page that I have ever done in another person's exquisite journal.  Thanks for your trust Roz.

This post has been on an adventure....I lost it and that exceedingly talented Louise, mentioned above found it for me.  Dunno how.  But I shall post this and continue later.
