    This is the real me, the chaos and non-organization that is my mind that is powered by extreme anxiety, I can never turn my mind off hence it was very difficult to stop adding elements one I got started so I tried to keep it simple.
    The dragon, shark,and dino are not only interests but examples of power both of good and bad. The coffee stain is my extra caffeinated coffee keeping me going.
    The footprint represents family, the paint is my creative elements that is often overshadowed by other things, the movie strip is my love of movies, the knife is nothing more than my keen interest in serial killers, the word art speaks for itself, the flair is my love , the button with string is possibly the most important as it represents me trying to hold all of my life together and a reminder that sometimes that string is thin.
    Sorry if this is dark but mental illness is often a dark place .

    The dark and light papers symbolize how I get in and out of my own head
    dragonfly-rejuvenation, starting over
    flowers-there is a soft side to me
    heart-my struggle with loving myself
    messy thread-I'm all over the place
    round stitch-how I protect myself, keep my circle small
    butterfly-being free
    scribbly bits-fighting my inner saboteur
    tree flair-my love for nature
    word bits are pretty self explanatory

    LOVE the challenge... Wish there was more time to get deeply into this... I LOVED the fact that you listed the meaning of what you included... definitely will help in getting the thought processes going...
