That's today's mantra...keep it simple. I have been jotting down bits and pieces of lists while I have a few moments each day for quite a while, mostly during my wait in the school pick-up line, but occasionally in a few stolen moments lounging in bed.

I trimmed the journaling card into a pennant shape, it was just a rectangle shape.

Those who know me well would probably add more to this list, but this is all I'm admitting to right now.

Obviously, I need much more practice with my doodling and lettering, but it's a start and it's something just for me. Everything takes time and practice, and I need to dedicate more of both to this class.

    1. Mary, head over to http://elviestudio.blogspot.com and check out her sidebar. She has lots of classes available. The one I am taking now is the Doodle Pages class, but I'd also like to take the lettering class. Have fun browsing her website and taking a class, too!
