    June Birthday Contest Giveaway!


    Hooray!  I’m finally having the giveaway! It’s a giveaway to celebrate my birthday – turning 60 and also to thank you so much for following my blog for all this time!


    There will be three prizes in total!


    One prize is for a print of your choosing of my #60in60 cartoons – you let me know which print you want.  The print is approximately 5 x 5 – it doesn’t come with the frame. You also win a blank art journal with my art on the front – “Be who you are” – the smooth cardstock pages inside are suitable for art journaling!


    The next prize is basically the same only the cover of the blank art journal has another image of my work “Be true to you”. So you get a lovely blank art journal and a print of your choice.


    The third prize is a t-shirt with my cartoon “You are a Spiritual Being having a human experience” ladies size large – in the photo i am wearing a size large.


    So in order to be entered into the contest please leave me the answer to this question in the comment section below:

    Because my 60 in 60 cartoons have become so popular I am thinking of making them into something to sell – please let me know what you think i could make them into to easily share with others – book, greeting cards, prints, magnets ????


    I will draw 3 winners names on Tuesday morning June 24th at 8 am PST. 

    Thank you and good luck everyone!

          I can’t believe it’s the end of the week already!  Guess what?  Great news – it’s Contest time!  This time I’ll be giving away these sweet goodies:


          I’m so excited about the April Giveaway!  One lucky winner will receive a Teens Dream Journal DVD (how to create a healing art journal) as well as The Get your Mojo Going: Embrace your Passion Workbook.  I created the workbook along with my friend Susan Keeping for the Mojo Workshop we held back in January. You can read a bit more about the Workshop/workbook here. The workbook is full of creative goodness – lots of ideas to mind map, draw and journal about your dreams and passions.

          The contest starts today and ends next Friday May 2 at 8 am PST.  Please leave me a message in the Comments section here letting me know “what gets YOUR mojo going” in order to enter to win!  Thank you and GOOD LUCK!

          PicMonkey Collage

          I had fun creating this collage of some of my 60 in 60 cartoons!


          This is my day 10 cartoon – I am one day behind……i better get my Mojo going and get back on track Smile

          I can’t believe it – it’s been 5 Years since my book Journal Bliss was published!  Five years!  Yowser! You can still buy my book on Amazon.

          Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

            Art Journal inspiration!


            Hooray!  It’s hump day today!

            Yesterday the winner of my March Contest – Skye came over with her teenage daughter Autumn to pick up her winnings. She was interested in showing her daughter my art journals and journal pages so i put them out on my table for them to take a look!  In the green box i keep all of my loose pages which is the way I tend to like journaling best. We had tea, coffee and juice and a nice long visit.


            The Big green box used to hold tea and it’s the perfect container to house all of those loose pages of mine.  If there ever was a house fire i would take my green box, these journals and my computer hard drive…….oh – and a couple of photo albums too! What would you take?


            Looking for old journals and taking them out for Skye and Autumn to view brought back memories. The above image – Joy Boy – was created about 12 years ago.  The boy is jumping into the “net” – a real tulle net – he’s taking a risk and jumping.  Back then my pages were telling me what to do next. This page flips out of the book – on the backside of the page it says “The Abyss”.  I love this page.

            I can’t believe how far Art Journaling has come since then – back then i could only find things on Creative Journaling – no art journaling.

            I took the opportunity to give both Skye and Autumn lots of art journal prompts and technique ideas. Later Skye came back over and purchased my book Journal Bliss. Wasn’t that sweet?


            Skye took a photo of her swag and posted it on Facebook!

            People interested in mixed media and art journaling tend to be the nicest folks! And speaking of getting together with nice folks – next Tuesday March 25th at 3:30 pm is our Free Art Journal Jam at the Good Day Sunshine Cafe!  Everyone is welcome.  Just buy a beverage, bring your art journal and favourite pens and journal away with us!
