A new start?

I will admit. I am horrible at follow through. Have been my whole life....will probably die having LOTS of things started and not finished. It is genetic. Seriously. I am not kidding. My mom was the same EXACT way. I barely new her so how else do you explain the same horrible trait. I (mom as well) want(ed) to know how to do everything, but finish NOTHING! So, for me to say that I vow to keep this blog up, well, it would be a big fat lie. I will state that I will TRY to post on a somewhat regular basis though, you know, like more than once every two years. I have lots of excuses, and very valid ones, but they still are excuses. So, with that, let's start over.

Hi, my name is Jennifer. I am a former scrapbooker who felt caged up in that world. I like to push the boundaries a bit too much to fit into that group, so I changed it up. I found a new love, a better way of using my creative juices. I have found art journaling and mixed media art. I love the free feeling, the "you can do anything" mantra of it, the way you can splash paint on a book and create something you *feel*, instead of just a pretty layout. Now no one freak out, I still like scrapbooking, but this...this is something that is just for ME. If you don't *get it* it is fine, because I do. These pages mean something to me. It is an extension of what is going on inside of me. Some people use words on paper, I find that I won't write what I am truly feeling, because I can't find the proper words to do it, but with art supplies I can release what is inside of me without inhibitions. Without worrying what people will think if they come across it. Sometimes it's pretty and bright, other times is raw and a bit dark. But isn't life like that? We can't have all blue skies and rainbows. There has to be a bit of rain and wind as well. So there you have it. You can take it or leave it. But I have found my niche finally!
