Sharla's Note: Pam shares her personal philosophy on how the Art Journal is an opportunity to be true to yourself and become a better self, friend, mother, daughter, employee. Setting aside time for yourself everyday 5-10 minutes is enough to jump start the creative process which begats more creativity. Pretty or not pretty is not the purpose, it is the journey.
