But I also would like to begin drawing and sketching again, so that idea sits patiently at the side while I'm settling into a new routine and schedule once more...So here I am again playing with priorities and determining to be more disciplined.

Meanwhile, Random Journal Day #44 has its link up this weekend (with a sweet giveaway if you'd like to follow the link and check it out!) I am still managing to keep up in my prayer and scripture journal, seven months in! Just a couple doodles to share this week:

|How cool is this??|
And that's all I have to share this week. Head on over to Enthusiatically, Dawn for more journal inspiration and link up love! Have a great weekend and I hope to see you back here again soon!
