Bees and things…

Life has sped ahead of me. I feel like I am still in the beginning of June, but the calendar says it’s the middle of July! How does this happen to me? Does it happen to you?

I do take time to stop. I just stop and notice the blooming plumeria or the new orchid…and the big skies at dusk stop me in my tracks…

…and these skies are inspiration to paint or journal or collage…

I’ve been working in my Creative+Practice sketchbook, experimenting with gouache paints, I’ve been making some zippered canvas pouches (that aren’t done yet) and I’ve been working on my SAVE THE BEES project:

BeeProjects

… and that has involved painting flowers, sewing, writing and making little books!

SO… I guess that’s where June into July went. Now to get back on track! It shouldn’t be too hard. The days are so hot (94F) that I really just want to stay inside in the cool AC and hang out in the studio making things, reading and writing. What are you doing this summer?

From my journal – Hello October!

It’s a busy month with lots going on, but I still spend time with my journal because it grounds me and keeps me focused on what I care about. I have been working on paintings and story boxes and trying to add more to my Utah journal.

Also, having another Creative Journal Session at Fed Wellness coming up. Come for a Creative Night Out. Nosh and Play! What else are Friday nights for?
