Where Do I Begin...

I can't believe how much has been going on lately, but I will try and keep it short. First my family and I went to Maui for 8 days in the beginning of June. We had a blast and were sad to come home. I have been there before and just love it. Then we went beach camping right after that for a few days. This is something we always do every year. I'm not a big camper, but I like camping at the beach.
Next was my very first Art Show in San Diego. It was through RAW Artists, which is a group that promotes local artists. My work along with several other visual artists, photographers, fashion designers, bands, makeup artists etc. were represented. I didn't sell much, but overall it was a really great experience. Having people come up and compliment my work, gave me a little more confidence. I never thought in a million years that I would have enough courage to submit my work for a show.

I started a Art Journal club and it is held at my house once a month. We just had our second session and I am really enjoying teaching. I love sharing all of the different art journaling techniques I have learned over the years. The absolute best part is seeing someone who really doesn't consider themselves an artist, complete a page and be really proud of what they did.

Here are some photos from the past month (or so):
