My Home is a Robin's Summer Home
(one canvas one soul)
J.ajabad is a nickname that I've had since high school and I have since used it as my artist/pen name. It has evolved over time but it's a play on my first and last name. The J. is my first initial.
I'm an artist and poet by well, can I call it a trade?! I maintain a blog that "draws" all the arts together and that has been condensed just this past year from a site and blog combo to just my blog.
I would say my scrapbooking style is hybrid since I still have my tradition scrapbook stash. I have made a few of my own paper backgrounds just by experimenting in my art journal and so far I have used a few of those in my pieces. Hopefully, I can make my own digi papers soon. I love paper and I always will.
I'm a history major who loves vintage items and loves how the study of history is essentially a time machine.

I used Sheila Reid's Pond Life Kit and the brick paper is from Marisa to document this occurrence of a robin nesting on three different occasions between 2007-2013 around my yard. Twice it laid its eggs in a nest on the drain pipe and once in a tree by the porch. It was wonderful to see the baby robins leave the nest yet it bothered me to see them so vulnerable. It reminded me just how fragile/short life truly is.
My favorite photo is the one with the baby robin perched on its railing. I was heading to work when I saw this little guy. The mother was in the tree in front of the porch and I thought she was going to swoop down and attack me as I tried to take the shot because I could hear her. LOL!
