Haiku my ♥, an Angel for Angie and puzzle update

A prayer on my lips
The Mighty One has blessed me
A song in my heart.

For more Haiku visit the beautiful Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon.

This Angel is for Angela the Art Angel,
hers is the last Art Journal I had the pleasure of working in.

I really have a thing for windows :)
That means I greedily did 2 spreads, the previous page...

Angie makes the some of the most delicate, gentle artworks.
Little vignettes of lace and hearts and keys and scraps...
I thought these words by William Strafford were perfect for her.
Plenty of 8's and the 8 gem halo will keep the magic of the 8 of us
who worked on these books together.
We had so much fun and our friendships grew even closer
this last year that we are sad to see this project end, 
but we have hopes of beginning the journey again in another project.

Another traveling project is 


Well I still have it and here is my progress...

I think I have the easy part done :)
Remember, if you want to have a go at the puzzle when I am done,
visit Gloria's Blog and jump in line!

I have so much to be thankful for...
the best family and friends,

  10. Lisa hi again. Here is a link to someone who wants to do the puzzle after you have completed. Would you get this, her name is also Lisa D. How strange huh?? Here is her link. I've added her to my reading list. Her art is great.
    I'll send you on email on this just in case you miss this. Take care dear. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Lovely post ....art, haiku all is nourishing to me. I want to find out how to make an art journal. As a non-artist I would have to start from scratch but I am intrigued by the work I see here and elsewhere. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I can only imagine how freaking cool those art journals must be. Your entries are perfect for Art Angel.Feathers in the window...so pretty. Ummm cake!!! Glad your bday was sunny & bright and sweet like you.

  13. Art, journals, puzzles, cake and a haiku - this couldn't get any better! Great post! Oh, and happy birthday to you!

  14. Happy birthday, Lisa, belated, but most sincere. I too love windows and doors...something about the mystery of what's on the other side, I suppose...my friend said I'm a "portal kind-a gal!!" LOL
