What My Heart is Telling Me...

To one who has been long in city pent,
'Tis very sweet to look into the fair
And open face of heaven, - to breathe a prayer
Full in the smile of the blue firmament.

~John Keats, Sonnet XIV 

Right now
in this time 
of my life
I am taking
each day 
as it comes.

I am listening to my heart
and doing exactly what it tells me.

My Brave Art

I am filling the pages of my Art Journal with
Kristin's Summer of Color Challenge.
Oh what JOY this is giving me.
I have a new found love
for my Art Journal!!

Two of my fave words hanging from my studio bullentin board.

Thanks to inspiration from my blog friend Nicole I 
gathered all my old Weight Watcher
stuff and started that 
this week.
What a difference 
counting points makes!!
Thanks, Nicole:)

Today I am 
spending a bit of 
one on one time
with my sweetie.
We are driving 
to Iowa for business
but I am looking
forward to just talking 
with my guy:)

My Brave Art

What my heart is telling me
is to rest, take care of myself,
art journal and get
all those feelings
(good and bad) 
Spend time with 
Pray and meditate on Scriptures.
And write.

Who will tell whether
 one happy moment of love
 or the joy of breathing
 or walking on a bright morning
 and smelling the fresh air,
 is not worth all the 
suffering and effort which life implies. 
 ~Erich Frommplies.

What is YOUR heart telling you, girls??


  1. Wonderful Leslie! Good luck on your trip and have fun with your journals! xoxo

  2. love your journals - your heart is very wise - telling you all the good things. Just started doing quasi weight watchers again (quasi because I dont even have all the old stuff!) Even just paying attention to what you eat helps. Enjoy your trip

  3. That's wonderful! I am glad you are trying WW again. So far, so good, here.
    Sorry I have not been by often as I would like. I am happy to report, I am back in my OWN home and have wireless again. Blogging comments will come showering your way. ;-)

  4. Well done you....always love your art and your

  5. Love your journal pages. Hmm, what is my heart telling me? Actually, it's my brain that is telling me I need to go home and continue working on my craft closet! Yikes. That's a job that I started yesterday and need to continue today.

    I saw your comment on my Abraham Lincoln post -- I love that movie. It's not my usual type of thing but am glad that I went to see it. Right now I'm sitting in Starbucks (another air conditioned place), catching up on my favorite blogs.

    Hope you had a nice day with your husband.



I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
