I'm a 40-year-old mom addicted to reflecting on life and my role in this crazy world we live in. Through writing, art, photography I try to make sense of where I am, and through genealogy I try to know from where I came, and gardening, well, it simply connects me with mother nature and her connection to god.
I just have to admit that I'm really bad at blogging. I read other people's, but I'm not taking the time to write my own. Part of that is due to the fact I simply don't have time, and I definitely don't have time to create any art, so... However, that being said, I worked this last week to create something. I feel so much better after I've made something. I know that, and I know that I need to take more time, but sometimes it's just easier not to worry about it. So, I've been experimenting. I got Kelly Rae Roberts' book and totally fell in love with it. I think it's the best book I've seen in a long time. With it, I've been less afraid to try a few things. I've been working with acrylics--have a long way to go with them, but I love it so much. Also, I've been using canvases rather than paper. I tried to use my moleskin journal, but it just gets to crunchy after being wet, and the paper gets too warped looking. Canvas allows me to use various sizes and then scan them on to paper for journal pages. I like that.
