A Page for Integrity

Today I continued on one of those pages I prepped yesterday and created an expression of integrity 

… using a favored expression of my own when discussing the topic.

To me, it's that simple. That's what I made today.

Three Art Journal Pages Prepped

After tending to practical matters early in the day, I was inspired to get out the paints and inks and other assorted art materials and prepared three art journal pages.

I like to work in multiple journals at one time so that I don't waste any paint. I mix my own colors and prefer to use all that I mix. Mama Earth appreciates that. I wonder where I'll take these pages from here? Or where they will take me?

That's what I made today.

More Mini Journals

There's a part of me that wants to ask for your blessing and beg for your forgiveness for this long overdue blog post.

… must be tied to an aspect of my upbringing … 

Yet there's another part of me that wonders why?

February has proven to be a very busy and productive month and I expect that trend to continue. Accelerate, even. I've reorganized my time so that I'm online less and while that has distinct benefits, I realize I can't leave my blog fallow for quite so long.

I reflect back to a time when I was posting every day … and I wonder how I did that? But the wondering evolves into the realization that posting a daily update takes mere minutes and it's up to me how I choose to invest those minutes. I'll be more diligent, I promise, but daily posts are likely a thing of the past (especially with spring around the corner and seeds to start, gardens to tend, food to grow, harvests to preserve!).

All that aside, I've created some new mini journals these past couple of weeks, as you can see. I have more completed, not pictured here, and more still in process. Creating these little pieces functional art is truly an act of health and wellness for me, a practice of expressive Medicine. And because I'm loathe to waste paint (and pollute the mama) I create ACEOs and art journal pages as I make these journals. It's a joy, really!

So today I got a few listed in my ArtFire and my Zibbet shops and will be listing more over the coming days. I hope you'll stop by to take a closer look as well as watch for the new listings as they get up.

So … that's what I made today. How 'bout you?

ACEOs & Onions

Today I finished up some ACEOs that I've been working on for a while and got most of them listed in my ArtFire studio and Zibbet shop. I still have a few more to get to, but one thing at a time.

I got a flat of onion seeds started, which feels so good. I'm anxious to start more seeds, but it's still early, so patience will be my companion while I dream of spring and nurse my "Bianca di Maggio" and "Yellow Parma" babies.

As for now, I have dinner to think about and then some hookin' to enjoy!
