My newest art journaling e-course Tell A Story is now available for purchase at Classes Kara Made. 
"I think writing is a total pain in the ass, but it is the best way to figure out what you think about something. Writing stories is particularly pain-in-the-assy. You have to put all these weird pieces together and connect them in a way that makes sense and is interesting. There is usually a beginning and a middle and an end, and one of those (or, hey, all of those) is especially hard to figure out. Stories are worth it out though. Stories help us understand who we are and how we fit into the world.
These days snippets of our stories are scattered everywhere. On our blogs, our feeds, our occasional journal entries, our phones, our photobooks. Lots of the time we don’t take the time to write them out, to think about our stories, and to get the beginning, the middle, and the end in there.
Tell A Story provides five different methods of telling linear stories in a mini-book art journal form. Tell A Story is inspiration for five different ways to tell a story — your stories, your family stories, and your inner stories.”

Grandpa. Looking at old photo albums. Three days after Grandma’s death.
The next day he took me upstairs to her studio and showed me what supplies I should take. I had to keep staring at spots on the floor to keep from bawling.
