Bloom! Brave this unpredictable world and grace us with your beauty. The first steps into the unknown are often the scariest, but they will take you to the best places.

I had an idea of what I wanted to write this evening, but I lost it. I have been too caught up in watching art journaling videos on YouTube, and making art supply wish lists all over the internet! This is my year to create more, but there will be more on that in another post.

I simply wanted to check in here, and leave my mark on the page. I keep thinking of this saying I wrote on Instagram when I posted the above picture. I feel as if my spirit was whispering this in my ear that day, and it has been sitting with me for a while now.

It's a new year

Three days in to 2012 already, where has the time gone? Here is a secret for you: every time I type 2012 my fingers want to type 2010! I have hit the delete key many times already to fix that little slip and it's only the third day of the new year. It seems that my right ring finger and the delete key are going to be best friends this year!

I wanted to step back into this space, take a look around, and shake up the layer of dust that has accumulated. So, here I am! I am not making any promises of how often I will be here, but I'm hoping that it is fairly regularly since there are quite a few things that I am doing this year and I would like to use my space here to document them.

The first week in January is usually the week that I do my reflecting on the previous year and start planning for the year ahead. I will be sharing here what I have learned from 2011 and what I hope for in 2012.
