JFJ Challenge – Pivotal People

This art journal entry was based on Challenge #4 Pivotal People from the Journal Fodder Junkies Site.

It’s my page about Lil’ Sophie.

Art Journal - Lil' Sophie's page

I started by writing her name and a journal entry of her life since birth. Then I added color, and magazine cut outs that reflect what she’s going through; a ‘fragile’ package, a syringe, fun flowers, statistic, and aquarium fish that we see at the hospital all the time. She has scriptures to remind me that no matter what her health – she has been ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ by God and that He is in control. I added her liver transplant date, and hope to also add a pic of her in there somewhere.

The page has pretty colors, and interesting images, but it’s all in a mess of chaos… which is exactly how we’ve been living for the last 16 months. Maybe someday, she’ll eventually have a calm, organized page in my journal  😉


About Jenny Bagwill

You know those milestone moments in your life where the course you were going completely jolts you into reevaluating all you think or believe? Mine came in 2010 along with a precious baby girl. My healthy pregnancy, produced a baby with many internal defects unveiling themselves after birth like a stack of falling dominos. We lost track of her surgery count once we hit double digits. By the grace of God, our little fighter has survived an open heart surgery as well as a liver transplant along with a myriad of tests, blood work, and medical visits. She’s doing quite well, and we share her journey here: http://www.lilsophie.wordpress.com I hope you take the time to read about our girlie and possibly leave a word of encouragement. My milestone moment (that has continued over the last 2 years), presented many idle hospital hours where I used my time to make hair clips for our little girl who battled to live. It also crossed my path with numerous families in many heartbreaking situations. This is when I decided to use my creativity to do what I can to help others. I try to use my God-given talents to encourage and inspire others which you’ll see me blog about here. I also make a lot of custom pieces to raise awareness of illnesses, syndromes, and diseases that may hit close to home with you. As you’ll see my pieces often contain encouraging words – things hard to say to others in the midst of their dark place. You can view, shop, or place a custom order at here at my JeWeL 4U Etsy Shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/jewel4u And because our Lil’Sophie has had a liver transplant I always encourage others to consider registering to give the gift of life: http://www.organdonor.gov View all posts by Jenny Bagwill
