This week, I’ve felt trapped in my own thoughts. First, our art journal challenge was to think about our best quality and “let our light shine.” That required days of thinking and also consultation with friends before I could come up with a word. I chose “ingenuity” as it seemed to combine intelligence and creativity. Then I spend days thinking of how I could illustrate that in my journal. I decided to go with my “journey” theme. Ugh. Not at all what I had in mind, even though I was thrilled to have my watercolors back. I had forgotten them at my mom’s house at Christmas and just got them back last weekend.
After looking at all of the beautiful, shiny pages that others shared, I realized that it would have been easier if I had taken the prompt a bit more literally! Too much analysis paralysis. Live and learn and enjoy the process. That is the point of the journal. A friend told me that I was just thinking too hard.
The Diva prompt was much easier for me. We were to draw and tangle the symbol of the Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day and use their color, purple, if we wanted. I didn’t think too hard on this one. Just picked my favorite tangles and started in.
It has been a long time since I shared any of Alexa’s beautiful cakes here, but this one is just too darn cute not to share. It was soy-free, gluten-free, and completely delicious.
