Vintage 80s Hallmark Scrapbooks and thoughts on why I journal.

I got these books from various sources in town. I have quite a collection of books waiting to be used. Some are blank, such as these. Some will be altered. I don't really know why I keep journals and shit. I do not plan on having kids. My books will most likely end up in the trash. I get pleasure from holding a super thick,full journal. I draw in mine.I doodle like a kid. I enjoy drawing happy dicks and throw up goats and the like. I take pics of dead rats. All my life, I have been told that I am not an artist. Fuck that shit. I do what I want. One of my favorite past times is visiting the local genealogy library. It serves a place for state history. I love this state. Anyways. The vertical files are the shit. Full of copies of all kinds of old shits. I love taking maps out of the files,foto copying them, and pasting them in my books. I then use these maps and articles for research. Then, I plan my trip. I will upload pics of my travel books once I figure out how to use the damn internet and how to upload more than one pic at a time on my fucking blog.

Scrappin Shits

12x12, originally uploaded by blacvulture.

I did this page in 08 while me and Johnny were at home after Hurricane Ike. Them Poleroids was taken in 06.


My name is Jacqueline. I am 25. I live in Louisiana. I am obsessed with traveling and keeping an art journal. I have been doin em since I was 18. I do some scrapbooking. I do whatever I want. I am tired of seein the same ol shit on the internet. All these Teesha Moore wannabes. Teesha came first.The rest suck ass. I am sick of seeing fonky faces with stupid pointy hats. Why not an ass hat. Why not some buck tooth smiley faces for scrapbook paper? Anyways I am not elite. I am just tired of the marketing of art journaling like its some sacred thing. It has turned into a handful of people doin the same ol shit with all these new people doin the exact same shits. I just moved into the city. I have the internets now. This bloggin thing has been on my mind for quite a while. Also, Ii am sick of Somerset studio shits too. ITS ALL THE SAME. Here's some old raggedy paper next to some pink wee tea cups and an art journal page with swirly shits. Kay. :p
