Last month I participating in some new challenges created by Less at the Art Journaling Ning. They were very thoughtful and I spent my time drawing as well as collaging. I attempted the "stamping on ribbon" technique I wanted to try out for my BBArtisans Challenge and for a postcard I made for a Postcard Swap. Instead of walking in the park like I planned, I spent time working in the yard. I’ve lost 13 pounds since January, which sounds good to me. Unluckily, I sprained my wrist at the end of the month, and haven't been feeling like doing too much lifting.
This month already looks to be real busy... that's getting to be a perpetual phrase of mine! Here’s three things I definitely want to accomplish in April:

I am pleased to say that I sold two sets of paper beads last month. Now it’s time to make some more (I don't want to go below my required number of items for the BBAs). I want to make some more eyeglass holders. A friend has been asking me about them (he's interested in buying a pair for himself), so I should feel inspired. I might make one for myself at the same time...
On April 1st, my art journaling class began - this is the second session. I’m excited about getting the chance to do some new things. Moira always has good prompts, like the one pictured above "Art is -----". Anyone interested in trying art journaling will have a lot of fun in this class - it runs from April 1 through June 8th. Moira loves to make videos, and I love to watch them! A perfect match!
We hadn't planned on getting a smart phone, but since our phone contract ran out, we decided to switch providers and get a Samsung Galaxy Note for me. My own little notebook! I need to read all about how it works and find what apps I might want to add. And maybe get a new case on Etsy. More to come!
