10 facts about me and my art

There are all these 30 day blog challenges but I hate challenges I am bound to fail so I am picking and choosing some of the prompts I want to try.

I have other blogs on other subjects (Weight Loss surgery and general stuff) and I will tailor the prompts to them as well.



#1 I am a 42 woman from Boise (correction : I turned 43 Dec 7 2011…bonus fact, I am forgetful)

#2 I am an alumni of Boise State University where I studied Art and English as a double Major, I have 1 semester of Fine Arts and 2 of English (writing) left to graduate.

#3 I prefer mixed media and painting as a primary medium

#4 I love art journaling and have about 8 journals going of different types and subjects at this time.

#5 I am a crafter and do many more crafts than actual paintings but I try to bring my own touch and feel to every craft and seldom duplicate exactly anything other people do.

#6 I have a spare room for arts, crafts and my computer and sadly just dont seem able to get it organized, having this room is one of my favorite things in the world and I am willing to put up with the lousy parking at our place to keep it

#7 I am a huge fan of upcycling, I use anything I think I can make work and try to find new ways to alter things for art

#8 I really wish I was more motivated, even though I am driven to create, even though I can’t go a week without doing some kind of art or craft I am so scattered and easily distracted that I generally can’t focus on any one thing long enough to get as good at it as I would like to be.

#9 While my favorite quote about art is “The only artist you should compare yourself to is the one you use to be” I still feel as if I am not as good an artist as I should be.

#10 I create because I dont know how not to.
