* She's here ...

.. she's big, she's bold and she'd RED!  I love it.  I was going to name her after another famous woman photographer, however, couldn't find one I liked as much as Annie Leibovitz.  So ... I thought "Annie II" .... BUT WAIT ... a little research revealed AL's second name was Lou.  Consequently, my new camera's name is Annie Lou.  Sigh.  She has a GPS ... does this mean I won't get lost? ha!

So, without further adieu, here's whats been happening in my journals ..

Full Tilt Boogie Journal

Full Tilt Boogie ... a place to keep some of the gorgeous mail art I receive.

Double spread .. Book of Days.


Double spread - Book of Days.
Annie Lou and I are absolutely delighted to be together.  We are once again able to share and play.  Do hope you are all having a lovely day.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  xoxo Donna

  3. Hello - Congrats on the camera. And she's red and has a wonderful name. Those journal pages are inspiring. I started a new blog artnstory.com and retired writingmycourage for now...I plan to focus more on visual art journal work and will work to make mine as beautiful as yours.

  4. Well that didn't take too long! Isn't it great! The GPS can be a bad thing because it shows exactly where the photo was taken and some people think that it could be dangerous (stalkers). They could pinpoint exactly where you are...wierd. I actually keep my turned off. The journals are great ... it's gonna be huge by the end of the year!
