One World One Heart Blog Hop

Welcome to An Artful Endeavor, an exploration of the creative life. I am Joyelle, an artsy mama, mixed media artist and singer/songwriter. Charles De Lint wrote that "all endeavor is art when rendered with conviction." I started this blog as a reminder to myself to live my life artfully, no matter what I am doing.

If you are joining in the One World One Heart blog hop, nice to meet you! Thank you for dropping by.


I will be giving away a collection of 8 notecards, featuring 4 different designs. Here are the designs included in the collection:

Thanks for visiting, and have a beautiful day!
