Don't we look alike? I noticed on Instagram the other day, so I said we SO had to take a picture together! Plus, we're both IG addicts, so we were snapping pictures on our phones while chatting for hours. I really love it when you meet someone one on one and just click and can be vulnerable and true. It makes life sweeter!
I brought my little gel plate and favorite supplies, and S brought her couch box (and I felt silly since I put everything into a different pair of boxes....I promptly reassembled my couch box when I got home!). We played with each others' favorite supplies and did drawing and general mess-making. If you haven't had a play date in awhile, you really should. I found myself re-energized after a few weeks of ucky CFS fatigue and really enjoyed myself.
(The pic above and the two below were taken from her IG feed, btw! Credit where credit's due; and permission given!)
I tried to get the face details to work, and got really frustrated, but was convinced she's just as beautiful without it. One of the things we chatted about was anxiety and comfort levels, and how it can be hard to put yourself out there. We can think the worst because of our own individual objectivities and issues, and have to be careful to stay open. I know I have to work on this, and it is a huge life lesson. I'm glad we were at a "yay!" level!
Working on my daily digital pages has really loosened me up and helped me to express myself through drawing and painting, and this journal page is new and lovely and oh-so-awesome. Lots of growth is happening over here!
