Always The Spring

Always The Spring

Life has its seasons - its bright summer days,
Its autumns made poignant with memories' haze,
Its cold, lonely winters when bitter winds blow -
But always the crocus of Hope in the snow.

Always the day when the morning breaks through
And clouds break away to a skyful of blue.
Life has its seasons - its sun and its rain,
Its winter - but always the springtime again.

Happy Journaling with Teesha Moore 2006

Here are the first few pages of my journal from Teesha's class. The "amazing 16 page journal" has so many interesting flips and folds, it is a fun divergence from the norm. Since everyone is getting ready to go to Artfest, thought you might like looking at it. Hope I can attend someday, I'm jealous! I'll post more pages tomorrow. Remember Fiberfest brochure is up today.

Welcome to Art After Midnight!

This is my first attempt at blogging, so hang with me. First I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kimber Seistrup, I live in Murrieta, CA, with my husband and my dog Cameron. I have two wonderful sons and a beautiful granddaughter. I like to play with all my mixed media art supplies and I love to journal.

I've been busy this past year taking classes with Kelly Kilmer and Anne Grgich at A Little Bizaar(Lake Elsinore), attending Art Unraveled in Phoenix AZ(with Traci Bautista, Julianna Coles, Lynne Perrella, Karyn Gartel, Gail Russakov and John Whipple), and The Paper Studio's "Under the Covers" journaling event with Teesha Moore.

In her class we made the amazing 16 page journal that is featured in issue no. six of Art and Life. I am almost finished with my second book. I love her techniques! This is the cover of the first book. I will share my pages in the coming days.
