I decided to not try to get caught up on posting past art journal days (I hadn't done that many anyway) and's today's journal prompt from Misty Mawn. I'd love to hear what you think it means! We were required to use pink. It says, "One of every one hundred American adults is in prison."

Just wanted to let everyone know... I actually HAVE done some art journaling, not every day mind you, but some...its just the picture taking and the putting it in my computer and the posting that is proving to be too much for this busy Mommy. I'll probably have to do a bunch of pictures in one fell swoop one day. Off to bed...ALL of the children are currently sleeping!! I may get more than two hours in a row!! Oops...spoke too soon, the baby is now awake.

January Journaling

Feistygirl and I are participating in artist Misty Mawn's daily art journaling in January! Remember I have three children under the age of five that I stay home these pages will just be quick artsy ideas and not much more. I especially wanted to do this to fight off some postpartum blues here in the frozen tundra of New England, and to see if my theory is correct - that I really CAN find the time to do what I want to in my personal just will be done in fits and spurts and may not look as I first expected. I believe having small children imposes good limits on doing artistic work - rather than spending all day moodling about how something looks, I've got to just pump stuff out and go with it! So Feistygirl and I made art journals out of recycled cardboard and some paper that Uncle Aaron had sent me a long time ago, and we did our first page yesterday! I won't be posting a ton of what she does as I feel its private for her.

Peace to you and your precious families.
