Hi.

I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

Week 44

Week 44

Still messing around in this same sketchbook.  I am getting closer to making a new one.  I picked out some papers today and began making the text block, now I must figure out a binding pattern.

This past week I've been doing morning pages again.  (That's where you free-write first thing in the morning to make space for creativity.)

Also I've been doing lots of scrapbooking as I process my boxes and boxes of photos and letters into 6x8 scrapbooks.  I threw so many photos out because I had doubles and triples from the 90s.  And I threw out all the negatives! I want to condense all of my middle school stuff into one book, and the same for my high school stuff.  I have these large plastic bins full of memories, I tried to get rid of most of it and just keep the highlights.  

 I love making these scrapbooks and I like to look through them, but I feel bad for any of my descendants who will be burdened with the 96 photo albums I will inevitably have when I die.   I hope they don't feel like they have to keep it all.
