Hooked On A Feeling

The New Year brings wonderful things to a wonderful state of mind. I am so pumped about this New Year. I have lots of things I want to accomplish and I'm off to a good start. I enrolled in an online art journalling class that runs from January 1st through June 30th. It's called "A Life Made By Hand" and it has been such an inspiration for me. I'll share creations as I go along.

I'm trying to make a sincere effort to make time for the things I enjoy doing, with creating being high on the list. I've been having fun with the local ATC club I'm in. The ATC below was for the November meeting. The theme was "Fall". I didn't want to do the traditional fall leaves or anything like that and was quite pleased with myself when I came upon the idea of time and how it changes in the Fall.

Our theme for January is "Family". I haven't come up with anything yet, but I think this will be a fun one. It's always great to see the variations from each club member.

I got a luscious new camera for Christmas and am having such fun trying to figure it out. Couldn't resist this cute little face on my Bella. I never thought I'd turn into a goofy dog person, but I'm totally in love with that little pooch.

Hope everyone is savoring the motivation a New Year brings. I want to hold onto this feeling for as long as I can. It's a glorious feeling!!

Now that is the cutest little doggie photo I've seen in a long time. I suppose it helps when the doggie is so cute to start with.

Yep, I wish for the same thing too. Every new year brings with it that unmistakable "breath of fresh air." Art journalling is very interesting. I bet that it is an excellent way to explore your creative prowess and expand your horizon at the same time. I'll try it out.

What a wonderful start to the New Year with your on-line course and having fun with your new camera. What a cutie Bella is! It is a nice feeling isn't it when the New Year is wide open to us?
