I think I have a new song for Mondays from the Mommas and the Papas:

"Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me."

I so look forward to Monday nights and thank all who join me. In spite of my lack of sleep from the night before I still looked forward to sharing that creative time with you ALL.  That is a great way to start the week!   Last night was all about being simple!  Here is the page we completed in my 11 X 15 Art Journal:


The materials list was very simple:

Materials:  Gesso, Acrylic Paint & Decoupage (DecoArt), Ink (Marvy)


If you missed the LIVE show you can catch the recordings here in two parts…PART I AND PART II:




I am sorry for the technical issues with Ustream that we experienced logging in to Chat.  Those are beyond my control but the venue is a FREE place for us to all meet. 

For those of you who would like to use the same quote that I used from Pinterest here it is (sorry no link to give credit to the original source):

Art Is...


I am so fortunate to start my week with all of you!  I think it important to carve out that creative time for just YOU!  I know that I circle all my activities around Monday night and look forward to Monday's!
