Back from a lovely vacation!

I vacationed up in the Adirondack Mountains (Long Lake)
with my family.
So lovely.
Laughter (LOTS of it!)
I am back with a few more days off
until the work week begins.
The view from our dock
Not so bad, eh?
View from the front porch.

It was a much needed break,
and now my batteries are recharged
and hopefully some creative flow.
Pushed by some of my favorite bloggers,
Hanna and Gennine are joining in to the
Click here to find out more.
Basically you pay $25 to receive a Moleskine Cahier (?)
in the mail, with your own barcode attached to it.
You have until January 15th, 2011 to fill your book
and mail it back. They have many themes to choose from
(though some are already filled up),
and I chose In Flight.
It seemed appropriate,
I am on a journey, a flight to reach a destination.
Destination: Unknown
I just know I need to keep following this path.
Plus my wonderfully supportive Aunts and Nonni
tell me that I need to get my art out to the world.
I love them, but find it hard to really believe.
My sketchbook (which I haven't received yet)
will be filled with doodles, paint, words, drawings
that describe this flight I'm on.
I don't know where it will take me,
just like I have no idea where I am going.
I am excited!


  1. How cool to make a committment like this ! I am not so brave right now - needing shorter term goals maybe, but it does sound like a great project. I look forward to seeing your progress and your pages filling up !
