It’s taking all my energy and I’m doing all I can to try and simplify my life and my heart and my head. I’m taking time to relax, to paint and sew, to celebrate my sister’s birthday with her (above is the bible cover I made for her), to organized my supplies. Taking time to reflect on what it is that I want and where I want to go…literally and figuratively.
I’m enjoying the simple things like fresh watermelon and afternoon naps, mowing the yard and the simple act of doing laundry (once my nemesis but I’m finding joy in it these days, believe it or not), spending time alone reading and thinking, not feeling rushed about anything and doing all I can to find some peace in an otherwise chaotic household.
These things would explain why I’m a bit absent around here. I really meant to do a Supply Saturday post but 30 Journals 30 Days was a Saturday post and then I got a bit lost in my own little world so I hope you’ll all forgive me.
I am spending time working on my class I’m going to offer, putting work into my art journaling Zine, and playing in my Art Journal. It’s always my safe haven.
I’m not sure why I feel so unlike myself other than having my oldest daughter and grandboy living with us has really pushed my sanity to the edge and I’m doing all I can to hold on at the moment.
Bear with me. This can’t last forever.
Peace & Love,
