November Art Journal Pages







Gratitude is a seed ...
that once planted..
lives eternal..








We had the good fortune
to spend 
Thanksgiving with family..





Kids and grandkids and extended family..
it was a lovely trip and we had a beautiful time..









and my pages simply reflect
the gratitude I had to spend time
with people we love,
and to see the world through the
eyes of our grandchildren..

which is such a gift..
to see wonder, and pure joy..
is so very restorative...








Ingredients: acrylic paint, walnut ink, colored pencil, pencil, personal photo








My hands are full,
my life is rich,
and I give continual thanks..


I am working on my December pages
and I will have the whole journal
finished for my annual reveal..

and in addition, this year
I will shoot a Vlog post 
and share all the pages, what they mean to me
and how I created them...


See you next week
with my Annual Holiday Post..


Ciao, Ciao!
