Artsy Soul Sisters

SB started a Traveling Journal called "ArtsySoulSisters" and I finally got around to working on my cover and page 1. I have been so busy at work and home that I had complete blockage and had to rely on my Miss Em muse to get me out of it. Above is the cover and page 1 is below. 9 other artists will add their page, then I will bind all together. Fun but I hate having that creative block, it makes me nervous.
We are off today to go kayaking, my nephews and their mom are coming over tonight and the kids want to go to one of those 6 flags places out in Springfield. So we'll take them and hopefully Grace and I will get to just hang out somewhere and relax. She has designs on the Christmas tree shop and I have designs on some artsy stores. So between the two of us, we'll find something to do.

have a good saturday friends -

Sweet Mim did you feel anything strange in your sleep last night. I was holding on to the lower part of your hand.

Thank you for your love for Sheldon, I will never forget it.

Love Renee xoxo

This is adorable. I can guess who everyone is. NO Artist block here. :)

Oh Mim you captured us each so well. Of course I love the block that's ME! The peace sign, perfect! The quilt on the wall...I love it. Thank you. I could identify each person by your Ms Em like figure of them and their home state/country. This is so thoughtful.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I am afraid when I STOP for a minute I'll never be able to create anything ever again. It happens especially right after I finish something big. But so far I've been able to turn it back on again, even after a whole week.
You will too.

Have a fun weekend. Mine is full too.

I too have that fear! I wonder if all artists do? I actually didn't join this group when Soul asked because I was a little afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up with you all! I'll get over my fear and try another time. I love maps and your cover is so appropriate.

These are darling. So clever and original. I hope Miss Em shows up in my book. I do so love her.
Sounds like an excellent weekend planned. Enjoy!

I was so creatively blocked a few week ago I was almost in a panic. Slowly the logjam is breaking up-but it IS scary, isn't it?
