Haiku my Heart♥

full of gratitude
yet, for a holy woman
she complains a lot.

Join Haiku my Heart
hosted by Rebecca.

This is a spread in my art journal.

Remember the stained glass window?

When I held it up to the light it looked like this...

I wasn't feeling the best yesterday,
and so I was drawing pictures for me to color.
I'll prolly do the same today.
Even though I should go to the store.
We are out of stupid things that I always forget to buy.
Like foil and dish soap.
Can you wash dishes with shampoo???
There is still time to join the challenge I am hosting at
You have until New Year's Day.

And yes,
you can be a grateful complainer.
I am a pro at it :D
Love, Lisa

    What a fabulous page!!

    I hope you have a wonderful New Years Lisa and a fantastic 2012!

    I am grateful to have you as a friend.

  16. Hello Lisa,
    You can complain or do whatever you like. I will still love you. I am in love with what happened to the tower. It transformed into a beatiful long-necked woman with a stained glass window for a heart. I am amazed. The saint has lovely eyes but is a bit too long suffering. Still, I love anything you do. It is all so beautiful! If you are a complainer, you do it with a double dose of humor, which is fine with me!

  17. what can I say about your journal page.. stunning? gorgeous? wow? amazing... actually its ALL those things and more!

  18. WOW, this is so beautiful- I love her eyes, they are so full of expression! And your haiku is great too.
    Happy New Year my friend....

  19. Great haiku, great art. Your journal is a treasure I'm sure.

    Sorry I didn't make the challenge this time. I've been on kind of a creativity break. Hoping to jump back in soon.


  20. Lisa, you have truly grown so much in your work. This is awesome, I love it! She is just beautiful. I'm so happy that you are just blossoming in the best way possible. You seem very happy. Take care and enjoy the week.
