I continue to work in my art journal but not everyday as was the case in the past few months. You can see March’s pages in my Portfolio page. I don’t usually start with a plan, but sometimes I’ll put ideas/images/text aside to use for the next day.
Some recent changes to my life have made it a bit more difficult to put aside time for art journaling. One of them is the addition of a puppy to my home. Please meet Carrie — named after Carrie Bradshaw of the television show Sex in the City. Carrie was 8 weeks when we got her. She is now 12 weeks. She certainly keeps me busy. Who knew that a puppy would be so much work, but I say this very happily. There’s nothing like a dog to bring joy to your life, to lighten the mood. Carrie is my first dog! I had a cat for 20 years, Suzie, but sadly she died just before Christmas. I was unsure about having a dog but not anymore. I am overjoyed now!
Carrie is a chocolate labrador cross with border collie. We got her from a family in Chilliwack who lives on a farm. The mother is the chocolate labrador and the neighbour’s dog — the border collie — snuck in over the fence. And there was Carrie plus 10 other pups.
