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 40

Week 39 fell away and no art came forth.  But then I started getting back to my scrapbooking projects.  I am trying to finish up my 2015 and 2016 albums, and then I am going to try to stay more current with my 2017 one.  It sounds like a huge job to scrapbook two whole years, but it really isn't that hard.  The photos are already printed, it's just about cropping them as I see fit and writing little notes and things while I watch TV.  It's therapeutic and fun for me.  

I try to put pictures in order, sort of, but I honestly don't really care.  This year it has been a bit easier to stay organized with scrapbooking because I have begun ordering pictures through the Timeshel app.  I pay six bucks for them to send me 10 pictures a month, which I select through the app.  I like their printing quality and it's actually been great to limit myself to just 10 pictures. I tend to over-order pictures since I have so many photos on my phone.  But I find that when I am forced to order just 10, I don't miss any.

Here are some new pages I finished:

This one really feels like my life has been over the past year.  Napping, bloodwork, pug.
