I am guest host at Art Journal Journey this month and have chosen the theme "Creature Comforts". You can go many ways with the theme such as using rich autumn colors, creating a journal page around what brings you comfort, or going literally with creating a creature - Halloween or otherwise. I do hope you'll join in, and for really wonderful, creative inspirations do visit the link ups!
Here is another entry from me:
Special friends I have "met" blogging bring me much joy and comfort as do the lovely notes and such I occasionally receive from some. This beautiful tag was sent to me in 2012 by my dear friend Patty S. and I decided to use it in one of my calendar journal pages. I know some of you have asked- although Patty isn't currently blogging you can catch her gorgeous art and photography on Instagram:)
And here are my September calendar spreads:
For T Stands For Tuesday I have a special lunch to share that I had while in Cape May a few weeks ago:
Finally I got to taste my first lobster roll!!! Now, Erika, I'm sure it doesn't compare to the ones you get to enjoy in New England, but this one was delicious!! I'd looked at reviews for where to get a really good lobster roll and went with the tiny place called Quincy's near our motel and got take out. We would definitely have one again:)
We also recently were able to enjoy the Celtic Classic weekend in our home town and the weather was perfect! We got to enjoy some wonderful music, the Tartan Parade, Highland Games, Border Collie Training Demos, and a Guinness (or two;) Here are just a few pics:
And now how about some Christmas???
WHAT- yes I did say Christmas!! Not that I really want to think of it yet as we are still enjoying summer like weather. But I couldn't resist taking out some of my stash and making two quick and easy cards for the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Let's Get Ready For Christmas!)
OK, I think you've had enough from me in this post so thanks if you're still here! Will be around to visit you too. Happy Columbus Day in the US, and a Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends - enjoy!
