Working on a thankfulness journal today. It has the feel of a calendar (you can hang it on the wall and there is a line for each day), but the focus is on documenting one thing you are thankful for each day so you can look back through the month and remember all that you have to be thankful for. I'm excited to start using this myself! There is also an #adultcoloringbook aspect to the journal. Each page has botanical line illustrations ready to be colored...or if coloring isn't your thing you can just enjoy the simple black and white line drawings.
This has been a year full of changes for me. And when I am going through change I often find myself waiting and hoping for life to be different. But this year, in the middle of all that has gone on, I have been trying to stop and focus on the moment I am in and be thankful instead of wishing it away. So this years calendar is a reminder to myself to stop and be thankful for the blessings that are in my life right now! So excited for it to come out on Friday!
If you're in the Minneapolis/St Paul area go check out work from my recent series, Lost & Found! It'll be up during the St Paul Art Crawl alongside some other great artists --October 13-15, 6-10 @ The Center for Lost Objects.
Just woke up from a dream, getting a phone call telling my dad passed away. In the dream I felt devastated and in a situation that I didn't have the money to fly back home for his funeral.
Later in the dream, I was flying/floating across through the air. I was noticing crows flying about.
Some crows, close up looked depleted of nutrients or something. They looked dusty and brown sitting on the telephone wires.
It seems like I'm waking up to more of these dreams, relating to wild animals.
Sometimes I'm sitting with a pride of lions, times a wasp is buzzing in my face, or times I'm flanked by alligators.
It's different and I still don't know what to make of it.
All I know is that these dreams started coming, after my grandfather passed away.
