Remember This - Week 34

Life Book week 25 was back to an assignment from Effy Wild. Her art was totally different but when I sat down to create, this is what poured out of me. It happens that way sometimes. This lady is made with acrylics. And she is not my favorite but I do like her message:

You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Listen with Intent – Week 35

For this month, I picked “listen socially.” While I am super talkative, being social is not something that comes naturally to me. I much prefer to be alone, doing my own thing. This month is all about getting out there, reach out to some of the people I’ve fallen out of touch with but I still miss and want to reconnect with.

I could no longer find where I got the lettering..

A Book a Week – The Luminaries

The Luminaries was the Man Booker Prize winner for 2013 and I knew I wanted to read it.

Except that it’s really long.

Really long.

So I decided that I would listen to it instead. That’s hours and hours of listening. But I did it anyway.

And listening might not have been the best call because there are a lot of charts and visual cues is this book. And it’s a tough story to follow as is.

But it was still worth it. I liked the story, found it interesting to follow and even though I got thoroughly confused at the end, I am still glad I read it.

Remember This - Week 33

My July My Mind’s Eye assignment is also May’s One Little Word assignment. I decided to take the wonderful little MME cards and then use their embellishment packs to add a layer and then I painted a bunch on each and then I stamped a bunch.

And a little more paint.

And finally I wrote my journaling and this is what I ended up with.

All the journaling is about what I am thinking about and trying at this moment.

Still can’t get enough of that Gold.

Listen with Intent – Week 34

For this week, I picked record. There’s lots of proof that we need to write down our gratitude to remember it. So we need to record the things we’re grateful for. I used to do this but i’ve fallen out of the habit. I need to get back in it. Apparently once a week is the right amount. Not too frequent so as to not take it seriously but frequent enough for it to be meaningful.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

Are you recording your gratitude?

A Book a Week – The Desire Map

I read Desire Map many months ago and wrote about it a little here. Even though Danielle LaPorte can be hit or miss for me, I loved this book. Loved it.

I think it’s spot on and I recommend it.

Remember This – Week 33

Life Book week 23 was back to an assignment from Tam. It was about drawing deer. So I took the antlers and put them on my girl. It was also about making patterns.

Since my little girl is quite unusual, I decided the text should say: What makes you different is what makes you special, embrace who you are.

Ain’t that the truth?
