T stands for One Cup at a Time

Happy Tuesday! Today is an other journal page.......I think it is becoming an obsession.....*grin*
More Gesso, paint, ink, stamps, Gelatos and Pitt Pens, along with some die cuts and paper doilies.
I didn't even notice how crooked the bottom looked, until I had it uploaded....LOL!
My coffee cup is sitting there, (maybe I SHOULD have added glitter to the cooked table top) as I had just finished the page, to fit right in with the T-gang over at Elizabeth's blog.  I also want to join the Art Journal Journey with this post too.........their challenge is "Journeys" (which I will have to link up too once we are back home) This how I start my daily cup at a time. *grin* 

A few of the details...Stazon ink tends to stay shinny when it has acrylic paint under it (?)
Die cuts over doilies in the upper corners.
I had this post started EARLY, as in Saturday afternoon, when DH said he wasn't working Monday and we should go in out of town for a couple of days.  I still have my "free" two night stay,  nailed the refrigerator, that I had won last I gave them a call and they had room at the Inn for tonight (Sunday) and we booked it!! 
Since our destination is only a few hours away I am up EARLY to scheduled this post ( sorry E, I hope you will be kind enough to link me up to your post) so I am away.....over on the coast.....staying at the Croad Vineyards and Inn.  Should be great weather to visit some wine country, it is only getting into the low 70s (F) for a couple of days.....nice!!!!! Especially since it was in the high 90s' last week.
We won't be coming straight home Tuesday, instead we will detour to go see an architect with my floor plan drawings, for the new house......time to have them professionally drawn up and engineered! WOOT! WOOT!
So visiting everybody will take me some time, as I am going to be in and out ALL week!  Geesh! Nobody told me how busy retirement was going to be.....LOL!
Now I'm off to throw a few more things in my suitcase and get ready to hit the road!!
Thanks for stopping by.
Inky hugs,

  8. FABulous journal page! Thanks for the ink tip! Enjoy your time away - good to be at the coast! BTW - I used to get so cross with retired folk who use to say they didn't know how they found the time to work….until I retired…where does the time go??? Hugs, Chrisx

  9. I love this. Not only is it great for T Day but what a wonderful thought. For me it would be tea, but a good cup of something warm is always good to prepare you for the journey. Happy T day and thanks for joining us at AJJ>
