Flashback Friday: New Year, New Day #art #ink #birthday

ArtJournal_4-2Did you ever have that moment of when you finally have to time to sit down and write when this happens…. Nothing.

It can be frustrating to look forward to something all day and not think of a single thing to say when the moment arrives. Obviously even as I am writing this I am certainly saying something but not what I originally intended.

Now where was I? Oh, right- I am supposed to be writing up this blog post 🙂

This is my first Flashback Friday post since April. As I indicated in my previous entry it has been a very rough couple of months. But today I am focusing on the “new”. Just last week I celebrated my birthday and wouldn’t you know it another year has come and gone in a blink of an eye. I traditionally close out the year with finishing the last entry in my art journal before cracking open a new one.  Today I am unveiling the first entry in a year long journey of self art discovery, precious moments, celebrations, losses and even grief. 

For me my year always starts on my birthday. After all, our birthday is just a way to mark the year that has already gone by. Each year I start my journal with optimistic hope for the year ahead not knowing what lays before me. My first entry is just that – a page full of hope for the coming year and the excitement it can bring. The title of this entry still rings true to me today as it did a year ago.. Today indeed is a New Day and New Year. I look forward to showing you my past year on each Friday

Until next post…
