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? At least I know that what I end up with is mine🙂

With that said, my latest…

DLP Art Journal 2015 – January week 4

Jan  w3

Week 4’s journal prompt was ‘writing’. Seriously, I followed the prompt. Underneath all of this is two solid pages of writing that I did documenting the current happenings of life. All best covered up… kept between me, myself, and I🙂

Remember These?

Hello June!   Today is like Summer at my house.  The sun is shining. The birds are out. It’s a weekend. Simply a good day all around!  Today I noticed that the most viewed post on my blog is for my pickled vegetable recipe. One of my own favorites and one that I seem to always start making on these beginning days of Summer when it feels like picnic weather.

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.

YUM!!

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:  https://connieartz.wordpress.com/2013/06/15/yum-yum-summer-goodies/

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.

Enjoy!
