Hello and welcome to day two of AEDM. I had fun going thru the other links yesterday and seeing all the amazing and pretty projects everyone shared. What an inspiring group we have here, it's my first time doing this and I wasn't sure what to expect but loved it. Wishing I had more time to visit everyone on the list, doing my best to get around. Does anyone have a system of how they do this, please share if you do?! I received some help on my linking up correctly too, thank you Elizabeth and Serena, hoping to do today's link with no issues. Now if anyone can help on how to scan my art and not have the background showing PLEASE let me know, thank you!!
Look at those beautiful thankful leaves for our first day, YAY!! I always love seeing what the kids will write and they always make me smile. Sam's was my most surprised one, he said school. You can click on the image to read better. The little ones were over for babysitting day and did one too. I'm thinking it will be easier after today to just show you that days leaves and thru out the month I will show you them on our door all together. Did anyone else take a moment to be thankful for something? If so PLEASE let me know in the comments, I love hearing them!

Here is page 2 in my prayer/blessing journal.
My plans for these pages are first to read and quiet time with the bible each morning instead of jumping right onto the computer. Then I will write down all my thoughts/prayer/praises/concerns or whatever is coming from my heart at this time. I am not one that does much journaling in my artwork. So this is new for me as well, hoping by giving a place for all these thoughts will bring me more peace to my days. The last step will be to paint over the journaling most days as it is private and create whatever art I'm feeling at that moment on it. My thoughts on this were...
I knew it had to have hearts, I'm such a heart girl and the blue is my favorite color and it had to be simple. I did enjoy writing out all my thoughts, it was actually relaxing and helpful. I do need to lighten up my pressure on the pencil though, didn't mean for it to come out so dark. Once I painted the hearts and put them down I was going to leave it. The more I looked at it thru the day I knew I had to add some words/title to it. My oldest gave me a pretty heart statue thing years ago with these words on it and they felt right for this page. Thankfully they came out and no mistakes. That's my other issue with writing on my page, ruining it by writing something wrong or smudging.
So there it is page two and it's not so dark like it is in the picture.
I want to say a BIG thank you for those who visited me and left wonderful comments.
Thank you Leah for giving us a place to share and be inspired with everyday this month.
Have a wonderful and thankful day today!
