Manged to start a couple more pages this week, I like the way they are turning out
Met up with the owners from Foxy Fix. It was their first time at the stationary show as well. It is always great to meet someone that you tak with on the phone or via email.
I went to a few tourist spots in the evenings. I love New York City, the streets have their own song and everything is so vibrant. I always feel that I could move here and then I feel the crowds of people and realise I could never live there. Way too many people for me.
I did manage to a little journaling in the hotel
My Moleskine Planner
I was able to play hooky this past Monday and visited the Wynwood Walls project in Miami for a few hours. The Wynwood Walls is a community revitalization project located in the warehouse district of Miami. Huge murals and graffiti cover the sides of buildings and shipping containers.
What an inspiring place, full of street art both on a large and tiny scale.
Here are just a few of the photos I took. The images that were taken inside the walls I have named the artists but those on the streets unfortunately I do not know who the inspiring piece came from.

Puerto Rican artist… Alexis Diaz
We ate at a lovely little Bistro for lunch – Zak the Baker, Avocado on toast with marinated tomatoes and red pepper. The tomatoes had great flavor and there was just a little kick to the bread with the flaked pepper. . . . . YUM!
I have a million art journal and canvas ideas running through my head and I left feeling very inspired and can’t wait to go back and explore the neighborhood again. I just have to figure out a way to play hooky again
Here is Anaheim and there is inspiration everywhere, I thought I would share just a couple of images from the show with you
Managed to get a couple of hours off and met up with another store owner from Seattle and we decided to have dinner at downtown Disney
Graphic 45 – their booth is always fabulous
Love this piece by Jim Hankins
Ranger Designer Challenge
The fountains at night just outside the convention center
The Prima booth was awesome
and I loved this display by Floracraft
It is that time of the year again when I head to the Winter Trade show to buy products for the store. Exhausting times but oh so good to see my colleagues and get inspired by all the art goodness around me. This year the show is being held in Anaheim, California
This is the week from my planner

This white stuff is snow!
It seems my intentions are great for this blog but, my execution leaves much to be desired.
I have been trying to get more organized about this site so that when I have the ideas for the blog I am actually in a place where I can write them down and get them done.
Since I have been gone I have taught on a cruise ship headed to Alaska. That was at the end of July and it was just this past friday that I was able to get my photos off my camera
I have designed and had manufactured (and SOLD OUT in one week, yeah me!) a line of stamps for planners and a set for Art Journaling. If you would like to see what they look like please click here for the online store:
How Does She Do It? – this is the stamp set that is helping me get more organized
PS-107 – this stamp set is for people attending school or the parents
Ready Set Go – to help me with planning my next working vacation
and this is the set I designed for Art Journaling – Imperfection
They are BACK IN STOCK
This is a sample of the Art Journal Set which I have used just for fun.
Will try and post more images as I get them photographed. . . . and based on my track record it might be a while, so no one hold their breath!
