If you didn't read yesterday, let me tell you something, INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY IS TOMORROW!! I am soo excited so I thought I would sit down this week with my art journal and do some pirate related pages. Little did I know that my pages would reveal how I have been feeling this last month. It's be a rough beginning, I got sick and battling tooth pains. So these pages are telling me that it's okay to have difficult times, I just need to breathe and remember who I am.
Amazing how creating art can bring out your feelings.
Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal.
\\Yes, it took me to list these to realize that I am wearing kids sized everything.//
International Talk Like A Pirate Day is this Friday. You bet
that I am going to be celebrating, like I have all week. Especially since I
have my pirate outfit to wear, only thing missing is a hat. And if you are a
gamer geek like I am, then you’ll be in World of Warcraft and celebrating
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for my #GetMessy Art Pages. I'll probably do something pirate-y, mate.
If you have been on my blog awhile, you know that journaling
is something that I really enjoy doing. This year I have discovered so much
about journaling. I realized that there are two general ways to journal, to
document your feels or to record your day. I was kinda doing both when I first
started. Then as I got sick I wanted to make sure that I remembered what was
happening and how I felt. Then as time went on, I had doctors to visits, labs
to check up and a bunch of other random little to-dos. All those lead me to
feel I need a planner. A place to write out my to-dos.
I started searching for planners. I came across Filofax,
Erin Condren, Midori and so many other amazing ways to record your day and to
write out your to-dos. The only problem was, I’m not stacked (rich) so there’s
no way that I could afford any of those so I went and made my own. Which has
worked pretty well over the last two months. But I am getting restless with it.
It seems from the time that I made that planner, til now I have been fighting
it every step. So this month I am on a quest to free myself of planner pressure
and to just have planner peace.
So over the next month (or more) I plan on sharing with you
guys my experiences with journaling and planning and what I am drooling over, versus
what I really will use. I hope that you will join me.
