My First Art Journal

I am in the process of organizing photos and family history. I thought it would be fun to share part of my trip down memory lane.

Here is my first art journal. I am around 6 or 7 years old. Like many of my art journals, sketchbooks, or scrapbooks (call them what you want) I usually didn't finish filling them in before I was on to the "brand new" book - something I still struggle with. I am trying really hard to completely finish one journal before starting another these days.

Yes, we always had some kind of wild animal that we rescued. I would not recommend it today. Racoons carry diseases that we didn't know of back then. Seeing these pages just reaffirms art and animals have always been a constant for me.
