Fourth of July!

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA. Yep. It's that time of year again. I saw fireworks last night in my hometown's Town Center park and it was pretty cool and scary at the same time. I am a chicken s**t when it comes to thunderstorms and lightning and there was a huge lightning storm coming through last night during the fireworks. At one point, there was a strike of lightning and fireworks at the same time. It was really cool to see. 

But seeing as how this is my first blog post on blogspot, I figured I'll tell you guys a little bit about myself. 

My name is Sarah. I am a 21 year old college student in Florida studying Psychology and American Sign Language. I have a boyfriend of 3 years, Kristopher. I used to be an Art minor but I realized that I truly do not like art teachers telling me what to draw, how to draw and basically controlling my passion. Because without further adieu, that is who I am. I am an artist. A free thinking, unprogrammed and raw artist. I am not a still life drawing, sketching art school artist. Art is basically what this blog will be about (unless I don't want to do it that way. Lol. We'll see down the road.) But for now, it will be for art. 

I am a creator on a budget. Literally. No money. I'm that typical broke college kid. I find most of my stuff at garage sales, I never buy ANYTHING full price from craft stores and if I do, it's usually $1 or under. I'm not cheap or frugal by any means. I like expensive things...for small prices. :) I love watercolors (tube, pan, crayon, pencil. anything) more then most art supplies. Scrapbooking papers make me happy (especially when Michaels has 6/$1). Spray paints are my most recent love. They're fun to add effects to and I guess you could classify me as a 'Mixed Media Artist.' but I don't like labels. 

I started art journaling when I was a freshmen in college. I had found 2 of Donna Downey's books at a garage sale and from then on, I have been a creator. My first art journal was a book from Dollar Tree. The pages ended up giving out on me after a few tries. I still have her though on my bookshelf to remind me where I started almost 3 years ago. I have always been an artist. From the time I can remember, I have always had a sketchbook (they're sitting in the garage in a box actually) and I am now distracted with the nurse in my father's hospital room. 

I will be back tomorrow. I will show you all some of my work!

Think.Believe.Create. (that's my motto. Because if you think it you believe it and if you believe it you can create it.)


  1. Love your motto. Great first blog post. Looking forword to discover your artwork. Thanks for sharing, Johanne L.
