This week, we're doing Moleskine Monday on a Tuesday night.
Finding a work/life balance has been a bit tricky for me - my body hasn't worked retail in about 8 years, so suddenly being on my feet and moving around for 6-8 hours at a time had me sleeping 10 hours a night! Which means there was very little time for art making, unless you count me coloring a little bit in an adult coloring book art!
It seriously bummed me out to see my paint still in boxes, so I took my day off yesterday to set everything up to make sitting down to paint easier.
I happily spent the morning reading and painting before coming in to work; my iPhone makes it easy to blog from the break room!
This week's spread was inspired by, well, life! I sat down yesterday to write in my journal and felt such clarity of purpose - more on that tomorrow! - and I was able to see that I'm just starting on this fresh start...I've been in my little cocoon, growing and shifting, and only recently broke free. It still will take a bit to unfurl my wings (it takes butterflies a bit of time, did you know that?) but they're here and I'm ready to get started.
