New Month New Header

 April in New Mexico is wonderful despite the wind. The trees are in bloom and I am seeing more green in the Bosque. We have taken a few hikes and that always feels good.  The landscape here never ceases to amaze me in it's variety and beauty.

This new header is a fold out journal spread I just did. I wanted to change out the lettering for the header as well but can't seem to figure that out. I tend to just let things like blog design just stay as they are for years.  

I recently made a fold out shrine.  I have always loved the idea of shrines- to honor something or someone in a contained space.  I am in an art group that has the members teach something to the group. I taught a collaged meander book- I have no photos of that yet.  One member taught a cardboard shrine lesson.  It inspired me and I ended up making my own way of doing one. I will share that here. During this Covid nightmare we are all in- I was thinking of how thankful I am having my husband Ron.  We have shared so much and supported each other through many challenges. The picture of us in the pop-up is from our wedding several years ago.
