Count your blessings


We are Bleubeard and Elizabeth and are delighted and honored to be your host this month at Art Journal Journey If you've already been to the AJJ blog, you know the theme we have chosen is Count your blessings.

I can't begin to count how many ways I am blessed, but here are just a few of hundreds I'm sure you will think of during August.










I hope these have given you a few ideas and I look forward to seeing how you interpret my theme this month.

Bleubeard and I are delighted you joined us today and hope you will join us throughout the month of August at Art Journal Journey where the theme is count your blessings.  We'd love to see some new faces, as well as our wonderful long-time and loyal players.  Please remember that we do not accept cards or tags, only journal pages, loose pages, canvases, altered book pages, and digital art.

Maybe you've noticed that I don't have a blog anymore but I'm still art journaling and most of the time about the things that make me happy so I will follow AJJ again this month. Aart journaling is a blessing too, don't you think? Succes!!

So pleased to see you hosting AJJ this month and what a brilliant theme you have chosen 😁. Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a Happy August! J 😊 x
p.s. I mentioned to say yesterday that I have unsubscribed from following your blog by email as I'm managing the blogs I follow another way, so I'll still be visiting as normal. Hugs J x

Nice theme for the month Elizabeth.
As long as we have good health, a roof over our heads and a job we should count our blessings every day!

This theme is so perfect, and reminds me that I need to add a Grateful section to my planner each month. It's so important to appreciate the many blessings that we have, and the way you've depicted it is so lovely. Hugs...and Happy Wednesday! RO

I just sent Barbara an email letting her know about your comments on my blog and that hers is not working--that has been happening to her more lately wondering if it is something to do with her ipad that she uses most

A wonderful theme and a nice page Elizabeth. I live my life after this saying: "Take time to enjoy the simple things in life."

Small things that have great meaning. Your page reflects that again.

Have a wonderful time

First I like to thank you for your kind words at my blog for the AJ front I made.
Then I must admitt I am so jealous about your creativity shown here.
I can just hope I will be nearly as good as this once.
