I spend my time with these extremely fun, inspiring, hands-on books. (:
Book #1: Wreck this journal: something I’ve wanted for ages and luckily was totally worth the wait! From the first page, it allows me to go places I’ve never even thought of.. fully allowing myself to let go of my own perspective as well as ideas of ‘art’..creating a mess into a masterpiece. Seeing every day objects as a paint brush. Tearing and doodling and just letting my mind free to go wherever it desires. Each page is different, like a trip around a museum..that you can fill in the blanks for. I highly suggest it for those that want to get a little creative and messy.
Book #2:A 365 daily creative journal: I won’t actually be starting this until my health is better. The projects in it are amazing but really time consuming, involve much searching for products and materials…etc. I want to begin when I can place all my effort into it.
Book #3: Memo journal..Misc lists&moments: This is an adorable book..full of colorful pages, cute drawings, and lists I never even thought of. They don’t hold back..from love, to haters, childhood and college life..memories flood back, and you wonder if your life has mattered, you hope that someone remembers you and smiles, and you hate having to write down your regrets. It’s a good book to get everything out for a fresh start. But I don’t suggest it for those that can’t honestly look at themselves. I find it cleansing. I found it at just the right time in my life, and every page will be filled before the end of the year!
I adore them all, and enjoy working on them. As they start to gather more life and become more interesting, I’ll share some pages with you. (:
It’s been a really wonderful few weeks, when you discount the random sickly attacks here and there. I swear, if I didn’t have momma & gram at home…I’d be in a Home! Yikes! Only when I have all 8 meds in, I can go to the store &hang out with friends..but only for maaaybe 5 hours max! Ha. I’m hardly close to being cured, but..I’m happy with the small fabulous times I do feel good! Like today! (: I woke up early, made myself some hot coco and cuddled in bed with little molly for a few more hours. Then worked on my scrapbooking project, I’m in love with it and cannot waiiiitt to scan it, working on it and making it mixed media. *bounce*
My hair is getting so long..and the pink dye from JULY is STILL in my hair!
It looks so awesome when I style it the correct way..almost like a swirly ice cream.
For Christmas, Mom got me these goooorgeous hair extensions that match perfectly so sometime soon I’ll be trying those out. (:
This is my comeback year for photos. 2010 was pathettic. I didn’t shoot much.
If you don’t see me around much, it’s because I’m either in bed sick, or using the short time I’m NOT sick, to photograph and edit. (: They’re the most important thing in my life..what makes me feel the best..so I’m thinking, maybe if I photograph a little more, my health will improve.
Night time autumn walks, breathing in the crisp air, feeling the chill but being distracted by nature’s beauty. Stunning purple clouds covering the entire sky, enhancing the blank navy blue mountain curves. city lights shimmer in the distance through the naked tree limbs. Details of a perfect night replaying on the mind like a busy film projector.
