Today marks the beginning of Art Journey design team introductions. Once a week for several weeks, designers will introduce themselves to blog readers. So here I am! (lol) I'm Deborah, a very new team member, and this is a pic taken with my youngest grandson Connor. Those who know me also know I'm a confirmed photophobe; I'm usually BEHIND the camera, and hate to be photographed myself...but it's easy, being with this beautiful child.

If you're HERE, you must LIKE Art Journey stamps! I "discovered" Art Journey only last year, although they've been around for a very long time. Based in the Netherlands, owner Louise Kolker produces some of the most delightful images-in-rubber I've ever used! These images are not my usual "style," which I really like, because they challenge me to create outside the box...my own personal "art journey." I am SO inspired (and, frankly, just a little intimidated) by the talented designers on this team, who constantly challenge me with their amazing art. Louise recently, and very generously, invited me to join the team, and I have the distinction of being the first CANADIAN team member (THANKS Louise). I've had several Art Journey cards published during the past few months, and several more coming up. I'm a retired social worker, and so very fortunate to fill my creative days with this hobby...passion...addiction...hmmm...how would you describe your OWN art journey!?

I live in the eastern Canadian province of Nova Scotia, and although I'm a frequent traveller, I cannot imagine ever living anywhere else. Please look and listen here, to see a little of my beautiful home.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Please visit often...you'll get to "meet" some of the most artistic designers...visit their blogs (on the right side bar)...be inspired! Here's a sneak peek of a card created with one of Louise's newest stamps. I'll post more sneak peeks this weekend...you'll LOVE these stamps!!

I wish you a creative day, filled with whatever brings you pleasure.
