Soaring Through January

I'm finally feeling better, phew! That flu was no fun. I'm still dealing with some nice CFS after affects, but I taught a class yesterday and baked a yummy cake (and made home-made buttercream frosting and colored it and doodled on it!) for a birthday today, so I'm getting there! 

Even though I didn't feel well, I managed to create a bit in my journal in 5-10 minute spurts at my studio table. These little snatched moments added up, and I would bring my pens and markers out to the couch to doodle while watching movies. I've found the more I do art when unwell, the less miserable I become. What a simple solution!

Here are some in-progress snapshots from my journals!

Remember how I started using my Smash Book for Project 365 last year, but never finished? I decided to re-claim it as my Creative Warriors diary! I'm so excited to be art journaling in my Smash Book again, and I shared this spread with my lovely community of brave women tonight as we surge forward into February.
