This week she said she was thinking about how going through life is a lot like how a snake sheds skin. One molting season after another...
I said, Darling, you can't be serious. That sounds absolutely revolting.
"But no," she said, "Molting is a good thing for snakes—and, metaphorically, for us. Look it up while I paint."
Hmphf. I said, I am entirely too busy to do research...But then I couldn't move anyway. Her first layers threw me into complete paralysis. Read More
Heavens no! I'm not getting soft in the head. I don't for a minute think she's actually going to keep going with this plan...

She's at it again. She just started a new project—jumped right into it. See the first page? Me.. Her newest Art Journal.—and that is my g or g e o us first page:
"You're not ALL about being beautiful," she says.
As someone who knows that creating is a fundamental necessity to my happy life, not only do I have the privilege and honor to work with other Createful people who inspire me every week, but I am typically working on two or three creative projects at any given time.
Right now I'm working alongside the other Art Fixers to finish my handmade altered art journal (everyone's books are so amazing! Will share soon!) and I have been busy lately building this blog and working on ANOTHER related creative project...
Soon, the altered art journal will be done and I'll turn to other creative projects we will make in Art Fix classes and with our art groups, and then as the blog folds into my life with greater efficiency, I have a series of small canvases in mind...and who knows what idea will come along to inspire me. There's so many ideas!
No matter what else I am doing, though, I also art journal. Always. Read More

This is a new page in my art journal and it was a powerful one. It pretty much captures a decision that I worked out visually, and I want to share it with you. You'll understand why in a minute.
The struggle: I was weighing the idea of a new project — this new blog — against many logical reasons not to do it. Read More
