My Perfect Room

Scribble experiment:
Draw lines around paper randomly, and then color the holes.

My Heart is Consumed of :

Family, Music, Art, Friends, Sunshine

Journal Goals:

Draw, write whatever pleases,
you, you, you

Did I accomplish any of these goals?

Ha! Does that answer that question?

Goals & I, are kind of a joke together. 

These are my summer traditions:

Outdoor Concerts
Family/Friend BBQ'S
Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven
Swimming Somewhere
Birthday Parties

Write a letter to someone & give it to them.

What I Wish I Wore:

Honestly I love my clothes!
So I just drew what I wore that day.
Here's what I wore using words:

Cream & gold floral headband, black, gold, silver & brown sandals, cream & gold wing earrings, royal blue tank top, royal blue post earrings, charcoal grey shorts with faint checkered coloring, patterned & floral butterfly blouse with cream, brown, royal blue, black purse with gold zippers & silver accents, cream & brown beaded necklace, black bracelet cuff with gold accents, & shades of brown beaded bracelets.

In high school I kept a notebook

 where I wrote down my outfits, 
so I wouldn't repeat the same look. My cousin thought I was crazy. 

The past 4 yrs. or whenever,
 I sometimes drew or photographed them.

Anyone else draw or 

write down their outfits?

I bet I'm not the only one.


  1. I don't draw or write down my outfits, but I LOVE the idea and might have to start.

    Thanks for sharing these sketches! They're amazing!


  2. I love your journal.. and I always love your outfits too... :D

  3. Nice drawings! i like the one where you welcome summer!

  4. you are so talented! I love all of these - they are fun to read. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I don't write or draw my outfits, but I had the idea of an inventory of my clothes and accessories, by categories. I would draw one of each category randomly so that I get new outfit ideas. Or better have a software for that, just like in the movie Clueless. Then I realized that sometimes you can layer skirts and dresses or wear scarves as skirts or tops, and so it got way too complicated and I just dropped the whole project. I don't have time for it, anyway. So the problem of dressing in a boring way most of the times is still on. :(

  6. You are so creative! Love these drawings and journal entries.

  7. Oh my, you do have ENERGY! I don't think I could keep up with you. Love your drawings - your dream room is fabulous!

  8. The only time I've sketched my outfits was for a page where I planned what I was going to pack for a trip.

    And I've sketched dresses and skirts that I'd like to make before.

  9. Love the art journal!!

    Wish I had been so successful when I tried to do one, but I found the whole experience unsatisfying (hated what I did!!) and stressful!!
