Happy looks-like-it-could-be-spring-soon week, little bunnies!  I was browsing through my book today feeling sort of pleased about how it’s coming together, so that’s exciting!  woo!  If this is your first visit, the method behind the madness can be found here and here.

Here are this week’s random prompts!


  1. If you’re in a workshop or class, actually do an exercise (I am notoriously bad about taking workshops and not doing anything with them)
  2. Use a stencil. 
  3. Draw your hand  
  4. If there’s something you want to get better at, use your journal to practice.  For me, that’s collage and fancy lettering, so I’ll be doing a lot of both, I’m sure.
  5. Optional:  Journal52 prompt – Party Animals


  1. Write down at least 3 things you’ve accomplished this week.  Even if it’s only ‘managed to not climb a clock tower’.
  2. Write a to-do list.  
  3. Did you see a movie/watch a show/see something hilarious on youtube?  Talk about it.


  1. Find letters (on buildings, signs, etc.) and take pictures of them.  Print them and use them to spell something in your journal, ransom-note-style.
  2. Take a walk and actually make an effort to look around you instead of getting lost in your own thoughts.  Take a picture of a cool thing you see.
  3. Take a picture of your favorite person.  
  4. Optional:   Captureyour365 prompt for any day or every day this week.


  1. Use something you’ve been holding onto for more than a year.
  2. If there’s an art supply you’re intimidated by, force yourself to use it.


  1. If you painted, sculpted, or otherwise created something you really love, take a picture and paste it in, especially if you gave it away or sold it!
  2. Paste in a fortune cookie fortune  
  3. Paste in something that makes you happy

Here are my pages from last week’s prompts:

Here is the entire spread


I did a demo of this page for my Artistcellar design team post last week. Click here to see the steps (and check out the current blog hop for a chance to win some free stencils!).  It came from the “draw a word” prompt.

Check out that metallic heart! SHIIIIINY

olive herd migration

I did this as the ‘draw a dream’ prompt – really it came out of the Freak Flag workshop I’m planning since I can’t get random goofy crap out of my head.. haha

olives close up

The olives are ready for their closeup! I used Distress paint daubers to make the background – I wanted to see if I could use them for a quick landscape and it worked beautifully!  That takes care of a destash prompt…

insert journal page

These little half pages work really well for the journaling part. I took my ‘artsy’ photograph (emotionally evocative for ME at least), wrote a short-term goal, and wrote a note to myself 10 years from now.

If you’ve done pages this week, link them up!  Even if you didn’t do any of these prompts, I still want to see what you’re up to 😀




Sarah wants to know how everything works. She also has a short attention span and is addicted to coffee. Those two things are probably not mutually exclusive.

Bwahahahaha! The olive herd! They are utterly fantastic! And your stencil journal page makes me all kinds of happy. <3

    heheh thank you!! Did you read my letter to myself? I was cracking up over how much of an asshole I am.

      AnnDAngelo · April 15, 2014 at 11:10 am

      I was so tired last night that I didn't read, but now that I have, I hope you know that I will also pipe up with that sentiment when you are 49! What else are friends for? 😀

      Also, I give you many shop hugs. Many, many, many.

        sarah · April 15, 2014 at 12:08 pm

        LOL thanks for that 😛 remind me how much she used to annoy me when she was bugging me for hugs every two minutes so that I can miss her extra much.. hahah!

          AnnDAngelo · April 15, 2014 at 3:25 pm

          *Making notes* Hugs. Every two minutes. Got it. 😉

          P.S. I live to serve.

I thought your letter to yourself was sweet. I worry about how much I'll miss tiny Spencer when he gets older every day.

I want to take a freak flag workshop. I've only taken a couple of workshops and I (like you) have failed to really do them, but I really like the idea of celebrating the weirder aspects of me.

    I have survived the teenagehood of Jerod (he turns 17 next month… scary) but am REALLY worried about Drucilla and hormones for some reason. I am dreading the inevitable "I HATE YOU *stomp stomp stomp*", although I never remember saying that to my mom, so maybe I will luck out. Unless she comes and tells me I was horrible to her. I know I was unpleasant to both of my parents' sig others, but I wasn't as horrible as I could have been. hahahah Plus, she was being a total PITA when I was writing that, so I probably feel like an asshole because I was annoyed with her crawling up my butt. 😉

    I will harass you when I get it together!

      Crystal Meaux · April 15, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      Oh, I see, you were being sarcastic that she loves you so much she won't leave you alone. I love not being left alone right now, but I've only got one and have only been doing it for a year. I'll probably be tired and mildly sarcastically grouchy when I have 3 too.

      Even when I was hormonal I was never rebellious. I've always been obedient, so I wish that for you. Although maybe you don't want that. Obedience doesn't really foster self-sufficiency. Hmm. I'll tell you what. Since Ann is vowing to remind you of something in 10 years, I will too.

      If Druzie is rebellious in 10 years I will remind you that she's like a little bird stretching her wings but that once she learns to fly for herself she will come back and your relationship will be stronger than ever. And if she is obedient like me I will tell you that's okay too, because even obedient birds eventually leave the nest.

      I am like super cheesy cheese fries up in here.

        sarah · April 15, 2014 at 3:58 pm

        At his age he's not supposed to leave you alone! <3

        I adore you and your super cheesy cheese fries <3 <3

        AnnDAngelo · April 15, 2014 at 5:58 pm

        (Me, too. I know the cheese isn't aimed at me, per se, but I'm diving in and grabbing some for myself! xo!)
