Gratitude Journal Day 3

You know, I think it's working- this challenge. I realize it's only been 3 days, but somehow, knowing I have to write something down each day causes me to stop and think, "wow! that's something I could write on a future entry....". I seem to be feeling a bit more positive about things, as I want to be sure to have something to write in my journal. I also seem calmer. (Of course it could be because I assigned myself time to do a bit of art every day for this project, and because it's an "assignment" I don't feel guilty about spending the time doing it. And I don't feel guilty about the laundry piling up while I do it either!

Entry day 3:

I am so grateful for my friends and family. I am lucky to have a great family, great in-laws and a fabulous circle of friends. They enrich my life. Even with the quirks, it works for us. They support and strengthen me in ways I'm sure I don't even know. I've particularly been enjoying my online art friends these last couple of years. They have grown close and dear to my heart. They have challenged me, taught me, laughed with me and counseled me with immediate feedback and examples. I've swapped and shared and learned more than I could ever repay from them.

Here is a quick shot of the latest fatbook I hostessed with some of my online art friends. It was called the Senses of Christmas Fatbook. It contained music, fragrance of evergreens and cinnamon, lovely embossing, folded paper techniques, and fabrics for touching, recipes (with samples) for tasting along with the lovely feasts for the eyes! the second shot is the clear page I did, as I didn't want the sense of Beliving in the unseen forgotten!
