A Journey

Do you ever wonder how you got to where you are today? and where are you going next?Reflecting this morning, I realized that there are so many crafts/skills/lessons/places yet to be explored!

I grew up in a loving family who wanted the best for me...
... the best that they knew...
(by the way, the dress I am wearing above was handmade, including the smocking, by my paternal grandmother)

I took dance classes..
music lessons...
I even took ice skating lessons for a few years....

and sewing lessons too..
(remember the days of peasant blouses and skirts? I am probably dating myself... but I did make that outfit!)
I have travelled some... Canada, USA, and abroad...

I went to college and graduate school to learn a respectable profession and I started a family but it was only then that I began to really set out on my journey, to search, to grow, to discover...


Lately, I have been on a quest to expand my horizons and also to find some focus. There are so many things I want to try that I might have to live until I am 100 to get to all of them!!!!

Today, I tried illustrated journaling...

I need to practice my drawing but it was fun.

And of course, I continued on my exploration of...
white log cabins
with colored centers...

Some journeys run into snags on the way... even so, my quest continues....
