I'm making myself spend some time on crafty stuff. It's good for me. Even more essential when I'm super busy.
I designed and edited these photos early in the winter and just now got them listed. I gave my mom a set on greeting cards for Christmas. So I'm trying to get back to adding things to the shop here and there.
And while I was in Florida and stressed to the max, I a little impulsively I signed up for this art journaling class online. Pricey, but I think it'll be worth it because they are going to post tips and challenges every day for 6 weeks. I tried art journaling a few years ago and it didn't go so well. I definitely need a little guidance.
Most people are using a spiral sketch journal or notebook for the class but I decided to make an art journal portfolio with one of the folders I have been using for making photo journals. This way I can use different types of paper for my pages. I'm thinking about refining the design a bit and whipping up a few of these in different colors and adding them to my shop. I love green and yellow right now. So fit for spring!
This is the opening page - about me. It's got odds and ends I've been saving, and some words and drawings from right now. I'll post a few of the pages in my flickr stream now and then.
