New Website and New Ebook


The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of busyness. So busy, that I haven't been able to keep up with my daily visual journal challenges, and unfortunately, I'm a couple weeks behind posting my weekly Journal Friday posts. I'm working on catching up though, and hopefully I'll be posting new Journal Fridays soon.

At least it has been a good busy, and I've been busy teaching and making art. I taught a two-week summer art program for high school students, and then it was right into teaching a summer camp for little kids. During all that, I was making art in preparation for Arts in the Alley this past weekend in Leesburg, VA. This apparently wasn't enough to do, and in the midst of all of that I revamped the JFJ website and finished up a new ebook. Hopefully you noticed the new website since the blog is now hosted on it. I am excited that everything is in one place.



As for the ebook, it's the first installment of my series based on my daily journal challenges, and it will go on sale in the shop tomorrow. It contains the first 31 challenges, and I can't wait to share it. I just have to look it over one last time so that it's ready to meet the world tomorrow.

I am glad to finally be getting a chance to catch up.

Free Downloads

I've just created a page on the JFJ website full of free PDF downloads. Right now there are 30 downloads available. Most are resources that I use in my elementary art classroom, but some deal directly with the journal. More are planned for the future. Let me know if you want to see something specific or if you have comments, feedback, or questions.
