First of all, I have to say that I was sad and happy when the forest journal sold.  Thrilled that is was going to a great home with a wonderful purpose and sad, because I was hoping it would still be around when I needed a new journal so that it would be mine.

I have let myself have some play time and have been having a great time sewing pockets in the fairy journal and embellishing them.

Artfest inspired

The first week of April I am going to this fabulous little art retreat called Artfest.  The theme is forest walk, so I decided to do a couple of journals inspired by that theme.  I used some gorgeous Japanese papers I was lucky enough to trade for.  I am really happy with the results.

The fairy one, I am not done with.  I am going to have fun with the pages, adding color, fairies, envelopes, and pockets.  I will probably take it with me to Artfest for the gallery.

This one I will be posting at my hyena cart and hoping it doesn’t sell before I need a new journal.

I am so excited for Artfest.

I had a customer ask me to make a lion box, so this is what I came up with.  I want to keep it.  I am in love with this particular stamp.  It is one of my favorites.

While I was painting boxes, I figured I would make one more using LeighAnne’s artwork.

I am so excited.  I have all my customs done, but one trade that I will finish tomorrow.  Then I have a few fun products I want to make for Necessitae’s stocking on the 15th.

When that is done, I am taking a break to work on some Artfest stuff.  I can’t believe it is only a few more months away.  I am so excited.
