Summer Bucket List

Well, as of yesterday evening, with an incredible amount of help from my mom, my flowers are in the ground. Now it really feels like summer is almost here.

Art Journal Pages As of Lately

Well since I haven't blogged in about 7000 years up until the past week or so, I realized that there are many pages in my art journal that haven't been shared on here. I get lots of questions about my process when it comes to creating these pages, and people seem surprised to hear that I rarely work with a plan. It's a very therapeutic thing, kind of like my mind spilling out on paper. I glue, I doodle, I add in words and quotes and phrases that are in my head at the time.

Well, it certainly has been a while. I feel like every time I sit down to write a blog post, I get sucked in by something else and "I'll do it tomorrow" turns into "I'll do it in three months." In any case, WOW. Lots has been going on. Winter is long-gone, summer is fast-approaching, and sunny days full of adventures are on the horizon. Never mind that it was below freezing this morning. Thanks, Ohio.

So these next few posts are going to be long and filled with an excessive amount of photos, so if you make it to the end, I applaud you.

Day 8 of being home. Still halfway in denial. Finally answered (I think... I hope) all emails and issues that arose when I was away. One of my misconceptions before I started going on cruises was that all ships must have free wifi. Good lord was I mistaken.
