scenes from my art journal.

Mixed media art journaling has become a major part of my life and routine over the past couple of months. I look forward to sitting down at my craft desk at the end of a few days throughout the week and making an absolute mess. A few months ago I managed to get two Jane Davenport mixed media journals for $5 each (the last in Michaels!), and since then I've been filling each page with paint, crayons, paper scraps, and so much more.

one little word 2021 | february vision board

one little word 2021 | cultivate

I started planning my garden in September. Part of it was wanting to make sure I was ahead of the game, but most of it was pure enthusiasm. I couldn't wait to get started, so I just did.

Now that it's January, scrapbooking and gardening seem to be finding their way into each other's territory because my One Little Word for the year has … Read More
