icad {mother's job}

a mother's job.

indeed. to hold all that sh*t together no matter what it takes.

tape. lots of tape... a variety of tape.
staples. sometimes the more the merrier.
layered paper. stronger.
stitched all up.

and sometimes that "hold everything together" is just for you. right?.....

art. creating. it saves the soul.

it doesn't have to be pretty. or look nice.
sometimes it will just be what it is. how you felt. whatever was within arms reach. tape. staples. paper. 

happy friday.

let it go {journals}

this is the small stack of art journals that i packaged up and mailed out last week. 

the one journal was a couple of years worth of work; so when i packaged it up to mail out.... i  prayed that this stack would arrive safely to its' designation.

i love it enough to let it go.

if i am not willing to take a risk..... nothing will ever happen.

*big things are in the works.....big things.....

happy hump day.
