Yay! My summer break officially begins now :)  School has been out for a bit over a week but I have been working on art curriculum ever since with some of the other art teacher's in my district.  It has been a lot of fun but I am definitely ready for it to be over :)  Tomorrow, I am back to sleeping in and hitting up the pool.
I've been working really hard on my journal for the 30 day challenge.
I am having a blast and the pages that you all are sharing are AMAZING!
Here are just a few of my favorites so far :)

And seriously, I could share about a billion more but you can check them all out for yourself in our Flickr group :)
Again, a blast!
Other than that, we are really really hoping to sell our condo (it's only been on the market for 2 months but it seems like it's been forever) soon.
We are also hoping to make any kind of progress with our adoption.
I feel like everything is at a standstill.
Im trying to remember that everything happens in God's time, not Janel's :)
Alright, I am off to watch "The Bachelorette." I can't handle another episode like last week's though! 
love you friends <3



  1. I am just now catching up on weeks worth of blogs & I finally figured out why I haven't been able to leave comments - something with my cache. But nonetheless, I fell in love with you & your blog by doing the 30 day Journal Challenge last year & I can't wait to do it this year. I am going to get going bc I am SO behind! Thanks for doing this again Janel! :)



  2. Thanks for featuring one of my pages on your blog! I am having the best time playing along, I love this!

    Good luck selling your condo! It will sell in time!

  3. So honored to be featured!!! I am having so much fun being creative again....you definitely pulled me out of my drawing slump!! I'm a fellow art teacher too...last day tomorrow and looking forward to a creative summer :-) I even picked up a sketchbook for my daughter, she was jealous of all the drawing I was doing :-)

  4. Glad you are on vacation. School being out on June 4 for us I am now on permanent vacation and don't know when I will go back to teaching. I will now backtrack and look at all of your June journaling posts and see if I am going to play catch up or just jump in on the 14th and keep going from there.

    Enjoy your time off.
