Art Journaling Update

I haven't updated my art journaling pages here on this blog since March! Here are a handful of my favorites from my work on the Studio Tangie Creative Team and my blogging on the Studio Tangie Blog:

New Theme for July: Ambition!
My Vision for 2012

on the Studio Tangie Blog!!!

Journaling: Ambition. For a long time, I ‘ve preferred to think that I don’t have a lot of ambition because then I can’t get beaten down by failure if I don’t have ambition. I’ve had people disagree with me that I don’t have ambition. I think what they see is my Capricorn nature: hard-working, challenge-oriented, and determined to finish the task. In the scrapbooking and art journaling world, I do it because I love to do it…not to strive aggressively for success in this industry.

As I look at my other goals, I realize it couldn’t hurt to inject a little ambition into them. I have been a little too comfortable, not wanting to rock the boat.

Two of these areas that are painfully in need of ambition include my home and garden. The main frustration that has caused me to shut down is that I don’t know how to compromise with my husband, and how to follow through to a plan of action that includes his ideas as well. When it comes to decorating and gardening, it would be so much faster for me to just do it myself, as my husband is so busy that it is hard to get him to sit down and make a decision, yet he definitely wants to put in his two cents. So ten years have gone by without a lot getting done at our home. We decorated nicely when we first moved in, but 10 years later and it’s about time for a change. However, the garden, especially in the backyard was never done.

It comes down to communicate, communicate, communicate. And then appreciate, appreciate, appreciate!

My Vision for 2012: Abundance Prompt #5

Prompt: What do I have in my resources that will assist in attaining my individual vision of abundance?

I used one of Tangie’s Art Journaling Templates, and went for a look that showed the feeling that the journaling gave me.

I want an abundance of love. I am grateful for my husband, my husband’s family especially my nieces and nephews, and for my family, especially for my new nephew.
I want an abundance of laughter. I am grateful for my husband’s sense of humor. I love that his favorite movies are comedies.
I want an abundance of respect. I am grateful to be part of the Studio Tangie team, and to part of Masterful Scrapbook Design’s teachers this month.
I want an abundance of security. I am grateful to live in a safe neighborhood near the beach where people love to walk around here at all hours of the day.
I want an abundance of plants and flowers in my garden. I am grateful for the landscaping and trees that we currently have in our yard.
I want an abundance of health. I am grateful for breathing, for being able to walk, use my arms, and for feeling good.
I want an abundance of energy. I am grateful for my doctor treating my hypothyroidism. I am grateful for power naps. I am grateful for more energy lately.
I want my friends and family to prosper in their dreams and happiness. I am grateful that my nieces and nephews are flourishing in college. I am grateful that my husband is following his dreams. I am grateful that my sister has her family and new job. I am grateful for peace in the family.
