Staying off the rumblestrip...that's what it's all about, right? This is where I come to record what feeds my creative soul and calms my "monkey mind": art journaling, mixed media, jewellery making, upcycling, yoga, meditation, reiki, and anything else that simplifies my life and/or is happy making. Daily life and current ruminations find their way here as well.

Mission Accomplished - 8/30
I got my art/playroom cleaned up! I was up till 4:30 this morning with a sick dog, so took advantage of times when she was outside to get things in order. And today I sat down and did a page in my art journal. I used markers and watercolor pencils (Derwent Inktense) and pens, and I doodled. That's all! I didn't even try out my Dylusions (maybe tomorrow)! I got so caught up with just creating something that I just went with it and this is what came out.....I don't know why - it just did. But I love that it's so colourful! I don't know where it came from because it's so far from what I intended to do, but I love it anyway because it wasn't forced - it just happened. Not from a course or program I'm involved in, just sheer, go-with-it fun.
I threw a party in my art journal !
It was a really rainy day today, and I took advantage of it this morning. I love the rain, and I took my camera, my journal and my current book, Journal Fodder 365, which I'm really enjoying, and went out on the verandah to enjoy the sights and sounds. I stayed there for two hours, did my morning pages, read another chapter in the book and took a couple of photos, which are below. It was wonderful. In spite of being dead tired, I managed to get myself present and enjoy the moment, which is a nice change for me lately.
Hope you all had a good day as well. Sweet dreams!
