I’ve been struggling to feel like writing this review. Usually I feel like I’m busting at the seams to share ideas I had, things I saw, and just generally what’s going on. But lately I’ve just been feeling like I don’t have anything to say. So this month’s wrap up will be short.

New Year : Same Me

We did it! We made it! Survived another year!

With another holiday season behind me I feel like I can finally set about finding a new normal groove again. I’ve been letting everything go wild at home while trying to keep up with holiday events and changes. I definitely need more order and structure in my days.

Art Journal Entries from December 8th, 2021

I’ve been doing some journaling, art journaling, and thinking about things. Trying to wrap up and put a bow on 2021 (as if there really is such a thing) and decide what I want to do in the new year. I’ve done some art journaling that has been helpful.

Finally I made a page dedicated to one of the things I want to move toward in 2022. This page shows me generating my own good energy field. Not necessarily “positive vibes,” but feelings of self-compassion, gratitude, and an internal appreciation for my own worth.

I’m really enjoying doing traditional media art journaling lately. It’s a lot of fun to play with supplies and just draw or paint whatever comes to mind, whether it’s just shapes and colors or full visual metaphors. I look forward to doing this more in the new year as well!
