Art Journal Therapy

I continue to participate in the Documented Life Project 2015, but what I notice is that when I go back, I can’t remember what the theme of the week was after I’ve created my pages with it in mind. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. I suppose if the thousands of artists participating all ended up with the same looking page, it would be quite the disaster, wouldn’t it?

Remember These?





Hello June!   Today is like Summer at my house.  The sun is shining. The birds are out. It’s a weekend.

Today I stopped at the fruit market on the way home and picked up a few things to pickle:  cucumbers, carrots, red bell pepper, green onion, garlic, green beans, and jalapeno pepper. I cleaned it all, put it in a 1/2 gallon mason jar, then poured the hot brine over.

Doesn’t that look delicious? Now I have to wait until tomorrow to test out the goodness, and it smells heavenly!

If you haven’t saved the recipe yet, you can find the original post here:

Feel free to make adjustments for taste. Sweeter? Add more sugar. Hotter? Slice in a couple peppers of your choice. You can even try different types of vinegar; substituting red wine vinegar or rice vinegar. It’s a very easy recipe to customize.
