Please give more attention to these writers! You are suppose to pass this award on to 8 fellow bloggers, to include the above text in there blog.

This is my 19th page for January and its focus was on using embellishment. I had a difficult time getting any of my pens to work over the paint. That was a little frustrating. I saw this page as a statement about making an occasion whenever you can. To celebrate life. Tomorrow is the inauguration and I am going to a ball in my town. Its at a hotel, I don't think there will be dancing but they will replay the ceremony and have food and such. I do plan to dress up as if I were attending a gala in Washington. Yes pictures will follow. It is a day to celebrate.

Congratulations on the award, Kate.
That's so frustrating when you can't get a pen to write on something...maybe it's that kind of pen? Anyway, I like the way your journal page looks though.
What a cool way to celebrate the inauguration - have a ball ;-)

What I admire so much about your blog is how you keep working, trying new things, and don't give up artistically. I've been reading your blog for a long time, and I see so much improvement and growth in your art---it gives me hope! I also admire your sincerity and caring. Thank you again for the award,
