Moleskine Monday & Christmas Wish List 2013

I could sail a boat before I could drive and I think that's why boats appear in my work again and again.  When I was little we  spent most weekends at the beach in the ocean.

My dad taught me how to sail and drive a motor boat.  Those were some of the best memories I had as a child.  

One of my goals for 2014 is to get back on the water.  I haven't been to the beach in at least five years (way too long).

I hope you are inspired by this post.  I'm always in need of inspiration for my journal and Pinterest helps me do just that.  

I found this drawing prompt on and thought I would share it with you all!  Amy has a list of 100 things to draw and observe.

I plan on using this list in my upcoming pages.  If you have time please head over and check out her site.

   “For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It's always our self we find in the sea.” 

I wanted to share a few items I have on my wish list for Christmas!  
Not all the items are exactly new but I still want them.
