I want to encourage all - especially those gals between 40 and 60, 70, 80 to follow their creative dreams. It is never too late to reinvent ourselves. Remember Beatrice Woods started sculpting to international acclaim at the age of 70!

Wow--can't even believe its February. I am behind in blogging--so my quick update is that I've been journaling, layering, playing--and loving it! I'll be blogging more about my process, inspirations (as well as distractions!) in the near future.
I've followed Dina Wakley's work for quite sometime and am a big fan - remember her work on the cover of Somerset Studio's Journaling/Autumn 2009. I fell in love with her use of silhouettes. So fun to take a class with her at the wonderful Studio Crescendoh!
Not only did I get to hang out with dear friends like Lynn Hardin (above left), but Dina seriously "Brought It" --she opened her technique coffers and shared a bazillion cool new ways to journal.
In addition, she taught us how to draw faces.
Some of my work - still in progress, but we each left a with a journal to fill.
