Blogging!

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions, but I did decide that this year I am going to try and blog more often. Yes, those of us that blog say this all the time, but I feel that if I have a plan of action I just may be able to do it! Now if you know me, you know I am a big list maker, can't seem to function (at least not function well) without my lists close at hand. So to tackle this whole self-imposed desire to be a better blogger I am making a list of some things I would like to blog about on a regular basis. Aside from what I normally blog about I know I need to add some more pictures and little day to day stuff the boys are into for Grams and Poppy. I am also toying with the idea of having a day each week to share a little tip or trick related to scrapbooking (if there is anything you would like me to demonstrate just leave me a comment). I think I will make sure and add some links to other sites that I find interesting too. So there is my list, it's not a long one, but a list non-the-less and now I feel much better!!

I have been meaning to post about the amazing class I took this last fall from Dina Wakley called "The Graffiti of my Life". I took the class because it was not my normal style. I am very linear and precise with what I create and thought it would be a good creative exercise for me to just let go and play with some paint. So glad I did!! Here is what my Art Journal ended up looking like, I don't want to say it's finished as I have plenty of room on the pages to add more "graffiti".
