Writers block.  We've all had it. In the ups and downs of our lives some things are pushed to the side. For me this year it was writing and new creations. Don't get me wrong I have never been prolific in blogging but had tried to be consistent throughout the year.  Creativity sometimes is hard. Ideas abound but I stopped sketching them and somehow they grew fleeting. I have taught many workshops this year, some new ones and as always take joy in them however have forgotten to carve out space for me. So now begins a new day.  I will take time to play.

I do believe this is my first post of 2014.  Welcome to the new year!   Once again I am astounded by the passing of time and how little I seem to accomplish.  I know I should never compare myself to the long lists of accomplishments of others but one can't help wondering just how they do it.  Every year I promise myself I'll be more productive and organized.  A new year brings new promises.  This year I'll clean out my storage closets and cupboards.  After helping my Mom move this year I've decided the kindest thing I can do for my children is to clean out my junk!  I know I'll be looking for each and every piece of whatever the moment it has left my stash but I must be brave and hold to a higher purpose.  

Now that I have shared my new purpose with the world, I'd like to share some more journals made as Christmas gifts this past year.
Okay, I know it's not a journal but what a beautiful sunrise!
Back to business!
Two more Christmas gifts and one for me
 This one is for me.
