Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Art Journaling

I've been taking an art journaling class and have been intrigued by the whole process. I enjoy the creativity and new form of expression. Using different materials is exciting and I love how things start to come together. Plus, it offers lots of room for mistakes - they simply add to the charm and make it feel less intimidating!

I created this blank journal to explore some of the different mediums. My technique for stamping on fabric needs some refining, but as with anything in life, this is a work in progress. :)
