I am about to be off on a BIG journey  and won't be home until the end of the month.
Here's a page in my calendar journal that I colored and doodled. Then I stamped some Asian images and added this postage stamp I had in my stash. I made this spread a few weeks ago but have saved it for this post. Thought it would be the perfect art piece to leave everyone with.
Japan, here I come.
I won't be posting, but promise to come back with lots of photos to share.
Hope everyone has a fantastic next 10 days and spring weather arrives in everyone's world.
 I will see you all when I get back.

I'm thrilled you shared one last entry with us, because I had planned to stop by and wish you a great trip. I know you will have fun, and believe me, I am going to miss you. I look for your art every day and I'm going to miss your comments, too. Please enjoy yourself and have a wonderful trip. I am almost as excited for you as you are. OK, maybe not, but nearly!

Have fun, stay safe, and enjoy your time away from teaching. Just think. Last year at this time, you were making plans to lose a kidney.

This is very pretty. I like the fish swimming happily among these green circles. I see they all have a bite taken out of them so assume they are tasty to the fish. Looking forward to reading about your Japan trip and seeing photos.

Enjoy and then enjoy even more, Erika, and safe travels and return home.

Wonderful spread in anticipation of your exciting trip, Erika.

A Japanese store just opened in Guadalajara. I had fun shopping and was delighted when I checked out. The clerk greeted me with "konichiwa." Then when I was leaving, "domo arigato."
