  1. Congratulations, your journals look great and the whole show interesting. wish this was closer to home. we have many galleries and community cart centers that seem to specialize in cute cottages gardens and in general the "The Retirement School". Where copying the past is the trend or should I say fixation.

    1. LOL, Monica! Lakeland is my one nearby salvation. I know JUST what you mean about the cute cottages and the "The Retirement School". My gal, Ro, and I refer to such things as "The Blue Haired Old Lady Society." Discouraging to say the least. Wine cork wreaths and potholder eyeglass cases. Enough said.

  2. LOVED seeing these photos! Thank you for sharing. I almost feel like I was there. Your journals and books are fabulous as always. So glad our paths crossed. . . Just sayin' :-) BTW, I love my dancing flowers. Love them!

    1. Thanks, Barb! You would LOVE this show. I only took photos of a fraction of the spectacular pieces that were there. I'm so glad you love your flowers - aren't they FUN!?

  3. Congrats on the show! Everything looks amazing ...thanks so much for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Carol - it was my pleasure to share it with all of you :o)

  4. Congratulations Angelia!! ~xx
    Such a fantastic display of your work. :)
    Thank you for sharing, love celebrating with you... such a rewarding feeling "the fruits of our labor!"

    1. Thanks, April! This has been one of my very favorite gallery shows in which I've been privileged to participate. I don't recall seeing anything that wasn't absolutely inspiring!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! It's a pleasure sharing the creative world of art journaling with you. I love hearing from you, so comments and questions are always welcome.
