Inside of Journal cover w.i.p.
Front of journal W.I.P.
My grandson Jacob and my granddaughter Nicole have taught me so much when it comes to art...they take it in school and learn new things weekly and share with Grandma...I am doing a cover page front and inside from a piece of art work that Nicky had to do for school. She is 11..I am going to embelish the front with something on the top and ribbons and beads along the rings and  the top and side of where her art finishes in the inside of the cover...so this is a wip...I can't express how proud I am of the work Jacob and Nicole do..Jacob is in to zentangles and creates beautiful ones and Nicky has been saving up and buying doodle books and we have so much fun after school working with these characters in the books....they are getting what I didn't in school and I think that is so important and great!!
some days you just have to stop and do a gratitude page and that is what I have done today.  I talk to my angels often and they never let me down in the important things in my life.  I could tell stories of how I think I was near the brink of disaster and they have pulled me through emotionally mentally and physically....Here is a gratitude journal page....

Grandad Eugene O'Neil and Charles Henry Sullivan at Eugene's Tailor Shop 1173 Dundas Stree Toronto Ontario Canada cir. 1916
My Grandparents Alice Wood (s) and William Sullivan cir. 1912
Eugene O'Neill with wife Bridgette and sons
These past two weeks have been "not" my favourite for sure!! Week one had someone close have an operation and spent the week staying late at my daughter's so she could visit the hospital...the second week my darling grandson had the flu so I stayed the week (daily) with him but thankfully he was well enough by Saturday to participate in his confirmation...

Now I am trying to do my tutorials but I also have the Family Tree bug and although all my Mom's side is done I am trying now to do my Dad's...His family was from Ireland and of course I don't have any records and know very little about my grandparents and great grandparents...so I have been on here most of the day trying to track some info...the internet for the first time, in a long time, has frustrated me...

The next three pictures are of my great grandparents, my grandparents and my great grandad with my dad as a child..
