Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Sometimes You Need To Follow The Impulse And Branch Out
I began this blog before I had ever heard of Stampin' Up!.  Then, once I joined Stampin' Up!, I decided to use the blog to focus on Stampin' Up! product and projects.  Fast forward quite a few years and I am finding that I continue to have the impulse to branch out into other media and share that with you.  I am not sure if those of you who read and visit my blog are even interested in other content...and, at the same time, I'm feeling like I need to follow the impulse since it seems to be where my heart is leading me.  I'll take it day by day...don't be surprised if you see me sharing more of my explorations in my art journal and with other art media.  I'm just feeling the need to branch out...or maybe it's more intense than that...a need to bust out of the parameters I have put on myself...a need to break free and run!  I hope you enjoy sharing the journey with me!
Today I'm sharing a page from one of my art journals.  You don't know how happy I am to share this page with you...because just a few days ago I didn't know if I would ever see this page again!  I was driving myself crazy trying to find the journal and thought that I might have left in on an airplane in a seat back pocket.  I even filled out a missing item report with United!  But then, on Friday, I was moving more things around in the craft room and there it was!  It had slid between a box and a storage rack!!!!!  It made my day!!!!!!  So I am happy to share this pen meditation with you :)  I hope you like it!  Maybe it will create an impulse in you to branch out!  If so, I suggest you follow it :)

Michelle, this is absolutely beautiful. I can see why you would be upset to lose it. I have to tell you that I am enjoying your artistic explorations greatly.
