{Back from ZNE}

All is well....

A few things to note:

  1. The show went off without a hitch and seemed really well received. Chel of ZNE was so GREAT to invite me. (Thanks, Chel! I had a great time!) I was able to pack up the journals and drop them at UPS on my way back, too. So once I get them, I will begin returning them all to you...THANK YOU so much to those of you who participated. I will have photos posted in the next day or so.

  2. I met many wonderful people at ZNE—Lani Kent, Kristin Hubick, JoAnnA Pierotti, McNair Wilson, SARK, and SO many others...shared tips and stories about creativity, business, and LIFE.

  3. I finally got to see the 1000 Journals Project documentary...NO, it’s not the same thing as my book...but there are some pages from 1000 Journals Project in 1000 AJP...confused? Yeah, I know. But REALLY, how else do you say 1000 Journal Pages? That’s why we added the word “Artist”. Anyways, the film was such a fascinating look at the whole experiment created by someguy.

  4. I dreaded returning to the AZ heat, but when I got home, there were monsoon storms blowing through. Works for me.

  5. No, when you see shiny eyes in the dark while you’re driving up into the California hills, they are NOT “kitties”. Apparently, they are raccoons. And no, I hadn’t been drinking!

  6. Pleasanton, California, really lives up to its name. But does it have to get SO hot in the afternoon? I REALLY did sweat while I was there...and I’ve lived in AZ for more than 30 years!

  7. Catherine Witherell, where were you Sunday?! I still need to sign your book!

  8. I believe I’ve become an art journaling ambassador. Sort of like a goodwill ambassador, but with pens and paint. Journal on!
