Love the art and journal pages, Kate. Quite a lot happened in 2007!
Wishing you a creative, healthy, happy New Year~

I feel so useless and lazy after reading your list. I can't afford to travel but I could have done a lot more art and challenged myself a lot more. That's what I admire most about you - that you challenge yourself to do things you might be afraid of doing.

Thank you for all the help you've given me over this past year, and for your encouragement, too. You accomplished so much during the year and you should give yourself a huge pat on the back for that.

I really love the pencil drawing at the top, and I also like your collages. You are developing a very interesting style and I can't wait to see where it goes this year.
