Here Comes August

We made it to Missouri. We have been here a week and a half. I really like it here, but I don't have a job yet. In between the time I am applying for jobs and taking my kids to enroll in school and dance, I have had some time to play with water colors.

First up is my completed July calendar journal. I am proud that I have kept up with this as long as I have.

I also have August's ready to be filled. (I have September's, too, but you will have to wait for that one.)

I completed 30 days of creating faces. Most of them are female, but there is one questionable one and one definite boy. Don't forget to sign up for Julie's Art Journal Every Day.

Finally, I have been inspired by this lady. Her flowers are so bright and vibrant! Paint and I are just getting to know each other so I have tried painting some flowers. Although they are nothing like hers, I am pretty pleased with the outcome.

I feel I have neglected my blogging, but I think that is because I haven't had any change in status. Maybe when I have more going on other than watching the USA network and playing mom taxi I will feel a little more inspired.Link

Things always have a way of working out, even if it is differently than we planned. Meanwhile, enjoy your journalling blocks and easing into Missouri life!
