CREATE in 2013.
A few weeks ago I stumbled across Stephanie Ackerman's blog: Homegrown Hospitality. I LOVE her work! She's really inspired me to just jump in and create. She chooses a "word of the year" every year to give focus to her artwork (and life). The word that immediately popped into my head is CREATE. I NEED to create more art. Creating art makes me happy and I want more happy in my life.
On her blog, she has photos of an adorable little mini Moleskine journal. Check it out. Although I have a random art journal or two (or three) in progress, she inspired me to run immediately out to Target and pick up a mini Moleskine. (Actually it's a Moleskine volant series). It's soft cover w/ 80 lined thin ecru colored pages. 3.5 x 5.5". I like it because it's very very portable. I'm keeping it in my purse along with a fine point Sharpie and/or a .5 journalling pen. At lunch I'm doodling at my desk. Fun!
At least the mini moleskine is a bit more artsy than my usual office art medium: manilla folders. Although I gotta say that I just adore the way the sharpie absorbs into the folder :)
