AlphabeThursday - D is for Dot



Seven years ago, I started making jewelry.  Who knows why, I guess I needed a creative outlet.  I joined Etsy and created an online shop.  But decided I needed to advertise and market my wares to a broader audience, so I created a blog and started writing.  And wow!  What words came pouring out of me!  It was a rush!  


I changed my artistic venues from jewelry making (and what became a second job!) to bookmaking.  Something I’ve always wanted to do.  As I continued blogging with paper in mind (instead on beads) I stumbling upon a site called Art Journaling Ning, back in 2010.  I had never heard of art journaling- I really enjoyed it!       


Watched a Bruce Springsteen tribute Saturday night.
This past weekend, I spent a lot of time in my art journal, creating for myself.  The spreads I made weren’t appropriate for AlphabeThursday Letter D, but it was such a  comfort.  I was collaging with lots of CIRCLES, a favorite shape of mine. 



I woke up on Sunday, thinking about AlphabeThursday.  And then it came to me (I do my best thinking in the morning): a Dot is a Circle!  And there’s Dots all over my journal pages.  How I love the English language and all the words available for just one thought!



Come see what other bloggers and web designers have to say about the Letter D, over at Ms. Jenny’s site,  …offon my tangent…

I think of a dot as a filled in circle! I like the page you're showing -- lots of different dots!
