Preparing for New Classes

I love the variety of classes I am able to offer through 
our county's adult education program.

We traveled for about 2 weeks at the very beginning of the new year, I was able to visit with family and friends. Our oldest son and daughter in law gave us a very cool Christmas present ... we are going to be grandparents at the end of August this year!! It was fun to see them and be able to talk about all these new feelings for our families.

Now that we are back home and a fresh 5" of snow to make everything look new and sparkling, I plan on spending the day in my studio working on a few projects. I have started trading art again. I have signed up for 2 ATC (artist trading card) swaps. And I am doing a partnership journal with a new online friend in FL. We will trade homemade journals back and forth for the year and use spiritual words
as our themes.

I also will be developing my class timelines. I like to organize what will be covered during each class in an orderly manner.
Makes for a smooth creative progress.

Here is a look at my recently completed 2016 daily journal. I made it from a college textbook. The cover has not been altered yet.
Thank you for stopping in for look. Look forward to meeting you at one of my upcoming classes!
