I'm baaaaaaaack...

Wow! So much has happened since my last post!
And if you keep up with me on
my other social platforms such as

(well, maybe not twitter since I'm not the greatest at tweeting)

you will know I've been a pretty busy gal.
Plus, my website took a nosedive and
I've been working on getting it
back up and running.

Here, let's catch up...

I straightened my hair but...

I decided to stay curly.

I visited several colleges with my guy
and helped him choose the best fit for him.
Can you guess where he will be this Fall?

My gal came home... not in time for graduation
but certainly in time to celebrate!

I seriously think I should go into
party planning
since I had SO MUCH fun with
both my kids' graduation parties!

I've stayed busy making oodles of fun journals
for my ETSY SHOP
and decided to run a SALE through
the end of JUNE!
When you place an order,
you will receive an "thank you" email
with a 50% off your next order!

I am hosting a weekly
Bible Journaling Facebook LIVE video
every Monday evening at 7:00pm EST.
We spend 15 minutes chatting about
the Holy Scriptures and then
we gather again for another 15 minutes
to do some ACTUAL
Bible Journaling.
It's fun! You should join us on my FB page,

I started a summertime study of
with Beth Moore...
whew! Girlfriend does A LOT of talkin'!
And that means there is
A LOT of reading!
I'm exhausted but lovin' it!!!

Our whole family celebrated
of service with our executive assistant and agent,
Lisa Payne.

And then our whole family celebrated
with this great guy, my Uncle Jimmy!
GAH I love him so much!!!

And finally, I've been spending the
past couple of days here... in the hospital
with the hub since his lung decided to
to go and collapse on us. UGH.
God has been very good and we have
much to PRAISE!

I'm so glad to be back at the blog
and hope to share some great
tips and tidbits
to inspire all your PAPER ART desires!
Stay tuned!
I have some really fun things to share :D

Mini Wrap Journal Tutorial

Oh... My... Gooness!
(That's exactly how I say it...
"d" missing and all Southern like.)
Has it really been more than
since I've blogged?!
What in the world has gotten ahold of me?!
I'm just going to be real honest, y'all
...sometimes I'm not sure if anyone even reads my blog.
I rarely get comments. And I gave up on the
little counter widget ages ago.
I was putting way too much value on my popularity
(for lack of a better word to address it.)
I have several personal issues keeping me preoccupied.
And the move we made back in August
seriously had me off my teeter-totter!
BUT... I think things are starting
to get back in balance... I think.
Not so much the personal items
but we are settling into our new home
(kind of)
and I keep feeling God's pull at me
to gather my whits and
have some stability again-
DESPITE my circumstances.
And I am a PRINCESS!
And BRAVE ROYALTY can move mountains!
So if you're with me, out there in cyberspace,
give me a little hello in the comments.
(Seriously, I would greatly appreciate the encouragement!)
And if the comments remain blank,
well... I will keep pushing the plow of purpose and
Creatively, of course.

Now... on with the show!

If you like all things planner-ish,
memory keeping, Bible journaling, art journaling,
doodling, note-taking and so on,
you are going to love the

After you check out all the cute pics here,
hop on over to
and check out the step-by-step tutorial.

Thank you for visiting today.
It's nice to be back.
I sincerely hope you have a
creative day!
