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 with...so 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 life...it 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.
