Aging with Attitude

Today I worked in Merrill's Aging with Attitude altered book....getting ready for our book swap on Sunday!


I took a workshop in Ypsilanti on Saturday taught by Marney Makridakis, author of Creating Time.  She talked about the gods/concepts of Kronos (linear time) and Kairos (non-linear time) and had us create art reflecting the latter.  Here's what I put together:

Journaly Pages

As usual, once I get motivated to update my blog, I start back-tracking to add stuff that I haven't shared yet!  Here are some of my more recent journal pages.

Today's Creative Projects

Here are some of today's creative projects!  I'm taking the online Radian Goddess e-course and one or our tasks was to do a Radiant piece of art work.  I've been wanting to draw/paint more people but put it off because I think I don't know how....but just like I tell my Kindergarten students when trying to draw something difficult, I decided to have fun and try my best!  So that's what I tried today, which is something totally new for me.

Also today I was reading one of Louise L Hay's books.  She writes that lack of self-love is at the root of most people's problems and that one way to work on overcoming this is to say positive self-love affirmations in front of a mirror!  So I decided to create my own affirmation card and keep a tiny little mirror on my alter so that I'll be inspired to practice.  Re-organizing my alter was another creative project for the day!
