One of the things I really have felt led to do was to keep some sort of book documenting our weeks - I don't want to miss anything that happens in 2012 and with all that goes on in our household I would miss things! :) Last month I posted a mini book I had made Remembering 2011, but I even as I finished it I realized I had missed documenting things that were so very important. So... with the help of a challenge site called Bird is the Word I started off 2012 with the word Promise and what the word has meant to me this week. I chose to do an Art Journal this week because I've never done one and I really want to learn to just let go and enjoy and I did! It was a thrilling adventure documenting my thoughts with some alcohol inks, blending solution and my favorite sharpie pen.

I've also realized that I really like messy in my art, but I also like clean and simple. It is hard when everyone is scrapping beautiful pages or in pages, or whatever the trend might be to stay true to oneself, but for myself I am a scrapbooker without a style but with a mission - my mission is to use whatever method works to tell the story of my family and I. So when I write my post at the end of the year and choose my top 10, it will be the layouts that document us as a family the best.
