Celebrating International Women’s day!

Yesterday i attended the Valley Women’s Network luncheon and had a table with my wares………


I had my Teens Dream Journal DVD and my book Journal Bliss as well as my pendants for sale (thank you Loretta for taking this photo!).  Even though networking is not my thing i do realize that it’s important to get yourself out there as much as you can to promote your art, products and workshops.  The group of women who attend the luncheon are really nice. Attending the luncheon is a wonderful opportunity to find out what other women in my community are up to and to support them in their endeavours.


Today is International Women’s Day – what better way to honour one of your friends, mother or sister with an inspirational pendant


Whenever i wear one of my pendants with inspirational sayings on the back i feel energized!  Follow your Bliss, Dream it Real, Love who you are sits over my heart and imbues me with the message! 

Today there’s a teen’s art journal jam at the Portal in Ladner – 4755 – 51 Street from 3 – 5 pm.  It’s free – bring your journal and some favourite pens and jam with me!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Valentine Card workshop prep

I had a fun afternoon yesterday prepping for my Teens/tweens Valentine card workshop today.  I created the following greeting cards to hopefully inspire the teens.valentinecards_collage


I will still create a few more traditional style cards – with large cut-out hearts and doilies.  I’m not really sure what kind of cards teens would like these days since so much is digital! One of the designs I’ll do is a cell phone with an “i heart u” message on it – hopefully that will be popular! I tried to make the designs pretty simple since i don’t know what the skill level is of each teen.  Also i was limited regarding supplies since we really aren’t supposed to use water media in the library. These cards were created with felt pens, pens and pencil crayons (some water soluble).

If you know of any teen or tween who would like to join us today at 3:30 i think there are a couple of spots left – call the White Rock Library.

If you know of any teens in the Ladner/Delta area who might be interested in Art Journaling I’m having an art journal Jam at the Portal on Friday at 3 pm!

Well I’m off to create more samples and cut cardstock!  Will chat with you on Friday!  Until then have a fabulous week!

Teen’s Art Journaling–it’s a Jam!

Hooray!  There will be another art journal jam in Ladner just for teens this time! 


I was interviewed a couple of days ago regarding the Teen’s Art Journal Jam i am hosting– you can read about it here in the Delta Optimist newspaper. Please spread the message to all the teens you know in the area! It’s FREE!

My friend Vivienne Grace who is the founder of a lovely Metaphysical shop/healing center in Ladner called The Portal encouraged me to have workshops for Teens at the center.  I thought the Journal Jam is a good way to introduce teens to art journaling. 


There is a Grand Opening at the Portal tomorrow from 11 am to 7 pm.
