Did/Been/Back in the Studio- Started the day to a decorated studio. Declared this week "Studio Love Week" in honour of today being International Artist's Day. I've got hearts, garlands, glitter wands, heart stickers, ribbons and joyful tackiness all around me. Working on a writing project this morning, finishing details like the sides of my mini-canvases, the regular stuff like appointments, cleaning, exercise, reading. Lastly, stayed up too late after getting carried away in my art journal (photo is of work today).
Savoured- International Artist's Day with Glitter! Boinking Jason on the head with the magic glitter wand. I can hardly believe it. I'm not the glitter sort, usually. As Dimitri Martin says, "Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies." But I loved all the cheery, party red in my studio. Hopefully we'll get some sun and I'll get some pictures.
Feeling- Tired, but satisfied, relaxed, more joyful. Decorating the studio was a declaration to create from a place of love, from what I'm able to do, to serve with what I have instead of coming from a traditional goal mindset. I have one week left to reach a goal that I won't reach- came to terms with that. I learned the hard way this month that for me this is a way to get more flow and peace in my life.
