☆Hi there! I'm a mixed media artist who loves to art journal and make small collages. Photography is a creative expression for me. My own photos often get used when I create. I'm from Connecticut, but live in Florida now, on the Braden River. I’ve been using Blipfoto since Dec 4, 2010 . . .but not continuously. I'll take a break if I can't keep up with posting, but I always seem to return! I do love it. 
 
I’m happy to be back, but doubt I’ll be posting every day going forward?? At this point (May 15, 2018) I have 2049 blip entries - a lot! The journal aspect & revisiting past entries, viewing the photos again is something I do love. I like the record of little bits of my life. Using my creativity is what I love to do. Connecting with like-minded people, visiting blip journals and learning more about you & being inspired by what you do... wow! To view my art, go to my website: www.creativelenna.com

I'm grateful that my dear friend, artist Frieda Oxenham introduced me to Blipfoto in 2010. We first met online in 2004, via our love of art. She lives in Scotland & I lived in Connecticut, USA at the time. Ten years after meeting online, we met in person for the very first time when I flew to Scotland to spend a week with her and attend Frieda's 52 Journal Quilt Exhibit in Peebles in 2014. See my blips from that time I spent with her, starting here
