I had created a background page in my moleskine journal quite some time ago but did not know how I wanted to finish it. It had a big peachy colored heart stuck on one page that I just didn’t like. I decided to try not to think about the heart and just started cutting out some papers which ended up becoming little houses and trees. I then realized that I could make a tree out of that heart. I’m happy that I could keep what I had originally put down for the background and make it work.
I’ve been thinking about my childhood home a lot lately. I think we all probably tend to do that around Christmas time. I googled home quotes and found the one I added above by Maya Angelou.
