He who continually helps everybody is a passionate being, Carmen Varner
Here's a more artsy side of me. This is a collage consisting of clippings from various magazines, mostly Vogue (the one with Tina Fey on the cover). 

In the beginning, I don't have any theme planned; I just flip through the magazines & find images & words that catch my eye. 

Originally, I wasn't sure what I wanted to say either. I found words  as I looked through the pages & I put them together.

Sometimes I couldn't find the word I wanted, so I had to search for another one.  I love the way it turned out; it reflects my personality.

Ever since I was in middle school, I would make collages. I wonder if they're back at home somewhere. I'd like to see what they looked like. Have I gotten any better? What was my imagination like back then?

I  still cover my bedroom walls with things I tear out of magazines. I cut them very carefully & close. Some things don't change; I've done this for years.
