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.

Weeks 5 & 6 (2017 Scrapbooking)

Weeks 5 & 6 (2017 Scrapbooking)

I finished up my 2017 scrapbook recently, and here are some pictures of it.  I say this every time I share my scrapbooking but I find it so satisfying and therapeutic to sit around listening to music and podcasts, processing photos and scraps into these albums. 

I've also begun the monumental task of transforming 4 giant boxes of photos, notes and papers from my WHOLE LIFE into small albums.  One for middle school, one for high school, a few for my twenties.  These days I make an album each year and I'm pretty okay at keeping up with it, but I didn't always do that.  I just took pictures and had boxes and boxes of prints.  I never look through these boxes and they take up a lot of space.  Plus, I really don't want all of the photos.  I went through them all and got rid of duplicates and repeats of certain events and moments.

Anyway, here are some shots of my 2017 album:
