    Hi Ali,
    I love your layout….
    But, I’m writing because I just saw a cover piece on Autism at It’s the San Francisco Chronicle site. I haven’t read it yet… but, I wanted to get it to you in case it is of help or interest.
    Take care, God bless,
    P.S. I’m just a lurker, but I love to visit.

    BRAVO!!! I am getting so inspired by you girl! Thank you so much! You have opened up a whole new art form for me that my soul is celebrating! I had my coffee this morning while looking quietly through Sabrina Ward Harrisons
    “Spilling Open” and feel so inspired by her art and found her site which was amazing and then to see your blog this morning! So exciting!

    Melanie said…

    I think is my favorite of all the journal entries you have posted so far. The stream of thoughts reminds me of a poem. Love the type font, handwriting, and image mix too!

    kristi said…

    Fabulous! I like your interpretation of the prompt… I think I am deciding NOT to do this week’s challenge b/c my thoughts of home are so conflicting and “non-homey”.

    This journal page really touched me.
    It really speaks everything that you have been writing about lately in your blog – Simon and doing the best for him, loving SLC and thinking of moving there, and most importantly…finding quiet space that belongs to you.

    Love this. Reminds me of a page I did for your book. I remember what I wrote. Home is where the people that you love, live.

    Hey, Ali,
    Check out today. There is an article about a 3-year-old autistic boy who appears to have been cured through chelation therapy. I’m always thinking of you, C and S.

    Ali, I just love your art journal entries. You have such a way with words – in addition, of course, to your stunning visual creations. Thank you for sharing. -Jen

    man…i suppose i should start getting back on track with this art journal, huh?

    Kelli S. said…

    Love this one! Have to say it’s my favorite also, and not just because I can SO relate (moving in about a month). Cool that Chris checked in. Has to be nice to get that “wow” comment from someone who sees your work on a regular basis.
    That’s it…I’m signing up for Shimelle’s course, even though it’ll have to wait a couple more weeks. I’ve actually been pondering it for a while now (Collage Discovery Workshop and Artists Journals and Sketchbooks ordered and as of today on their way!) So Heidi, it’s not too late!
    As an aside…go Bo Bice!!!
