Sharing Journal

A Paper Napkin Garden Journal

Garden Chores

Remembering Susie

Chasing Butterflies

Talking With Baby Birds

Catching Fireflies

I'm sharing the pages from The Paper Napkin Garden Journal.
Until now you have only seen little snips of each page and that was back in October.
I am very excited that I will be offering prints of these pages in my Etsy just as soon as I can get organized enough to list.

Good news, I got my camera back and laptop and all is OK with them.
I'm looking forward to and expect to enjoy a weekend of ART.
I do hope to get back on track with a journal page a day following Misty and the whole wide world.
However, I am dodging that "feeling" of having so much to do and so much on my mind that I'm so overwhelmed with the I-want-to-do and the I-should-do and the I-can't-do and the I don't-want-to-do and I find myself sitting and not doing anything. And then at the end of the day/weekend....bummer!
Do you know that feeling?
I will expect it to go away before 5pm.

  3. I know the feeling. Oh.too.well.


    Love your garden napkin journal!! :)

  4. I wish we lived closer so you could teach me your painting method. I am in love with your paintings. :)

  5. Ps: I do know what you mean about being overwhelmed. I think it's the time of the year, it seems worse for me anyway. I hope you feel better.

  6. Sharon, your journal is stunning!
    And yes, I also know that feeling. Been there many times.

  7. I love your Artwork!! just beautiful!!!

  8. Saw your feature in Cloth Paper Scissors about these. I am eager to try the technique myself. Absolutely beautiful.

  9. I see so many of my friends admiring your work and feel honored to be amongst the crowd! The first one is definitely my favorite! ( Still looking for more original and creative napkins to send!)

  10. So many temptations, wonderful.

  11. YOU took my breath away!
    Absolutely Stunning! I love every single wonderful detail!

  12. Oh, Sharon! You summed up that feeling so well! I hate how often I feel that way and the paralysis it causes in my creativity! But, I'm working on the problem and holding out hope for a "cure." I love your journal pages!

    p.s. know that feeling you are talking about so well. I mean ... here I sit at the computer when I should be doing housework, arting, instead of making a decision I sit and check blogs!

    p.s.s. like Crafty Gal Linda I would love to take a class with you too. Maybe you could do an online class in 2009??? pretty please.

  16. Love every page...I am loving the one with the long stocking...I love striped stockings. I really enjoy working with napkins.
    Hugs, Mary

  18. Those flamingos are too cute - love them. I can't wait till my CPS arrives - but I'll have to I guess cos it takes weeks and weeks to get here...

  19. Yes, I'm very familiar with those feelings. Not fun.

    Glad you got your laptop and camera back in good condition. Love your pages. Have a good weekend!

  20. Hi, Sharon. Just found your blog and love your work. I am new at art journaling and finding my way around. Your work inspires me to move forward, and I will purchase the book recommended in your sidebar. I've added your link to my blog. Hope that's okay.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Love this post--raw, uninhibited, heartfelt, beautiful!

  21. I feel the same. Too much to do and so little time.

    I did find a copy of CPS! Your Garden Journal is beautiful. I love your artwork!

    P.S. I'm glad your camera and laptop were returned. I've been having a problem with someone entering our house and taking small items...wish we could catch them, it's unnerving!

  22. Thank you for putting my feelings into words! I sit here at the computer, procrastinating again and am so thankful that I found my way to your beautiful blog :) I expect to be back soon, for more inspiration :)
    Expect great things for yourself - and I'm in for that online class when you get round to it! ;)
    Thanks for sharing :)

  23. Sharon, your work is truly incredible. I discovered it in the latest Cloth Paper Scissors and then checked out your blog. I'm inspired each time I pay a visit. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and humor. :)
