WHAT YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT (journal/techniques, etc.) What don’t I want to learn?? I love learning new techniques, new designs, colors, anything that takes my journaling to the next level and keeps me learning.
ARE YOU PUBLISHED? HAVE OTHER BRAGS?

A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF I am married to John, my high school crush for 24 years now (been together for 31!), and we have 2 kids, Michael and Paige, as well as 2 fur babies (dogs) Sam & Skyler. I love purses, baubles, iced caps, Coors Light, my Sony Reader, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus, sleeping in, hoodies & runners, rainbows & unicorns, a good laugh, crisp clean sheets, flannel sheets, vampires & mermaids, jammies, taking pictures and putzing around in my art room. I work full time in a cubicle but wish I could make art full time. I love to scrap, journal, make ATC’s and canvases.
THREE UNKNOWN THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF – I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you! Kidding! I wear a mouthguard at night to stop my clenching, I have 2 tattoos and I have a bad habit of picking my cuticles.
WHAT YOU HOPE TO GIVE TO A YEAR IN THE LIFE – I hope that I can inspire people to think outside of the box, to try things that they maybe wouldn’t have thought of trying before. I know I have been inspired by so many artists and art journals that sometimes it just takes one little idea and you can turn it into your own.
ONE THING YOU WISH YOU HAD LISTENED TO THAT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN YOU STARTED IN JOURNALING SOONER – I wish I would have listened to my heart. I used to be so arty when I was young and then that part of me “went to sleep” for many years. I am just forever grateful that it woke up as it is such a huge part of who I am, a huge part of my life. I do wish I would have been doing it alot longer than I have, like when I was in my teen years or even as a young adult, but I’m doing it now and that’s what counts. It’s never too late!!!
