I am loving this free time over spring break to play in our journals. I've realized this month, in working on Ali's journal, that I love the messy release of journaling. I love getting physically messy and mentally clear. So good for the soul. Why can't spring break last forever...

dancing in the rain

I feel so honored to be asked to be a part of this. I am not a crafty person. I can take pictures and make people laugh, but I am not good at artsy stuff. But...I can maybe learn it? I am learning a lot about myself lately. I will not close my eyes to the possibility of anything.

I now have someone else's journal. And I want to make the person who sent it to me proud of my pages. This project is so amazing on so many different levels.

The RAIN to the wind said...

Working on my first two pages of Ali's journal, and I cannot keep her love for Samson and her painful heart out of my pages. I know this month's theme isn't a sad one, and my entry isn't actually sad, I just hope it helps her along on her journey when she holds it in her hands again.

I told Anna all about the project and had a great talk with her about how everyone's interpretation of art and themes is different and that's what makes it so cool. So, I told her about this months theme and I asked her to do my first two pages. I love that she's contributing to this. Another amazing artist has begun.

Let it rain.

I guess it's not all that surprising that I'm so creatively inspired by this Monty's "dancing in the rain" theme since I'm the one who selected it. That said, doing my spreads in Maite's journal this month has been incredibly therapeutic for me. This month I have rediscovered why this project is so important to me. I hope that the other girls find similar moments for themselves.

I received Maite's journal at a really good time the other day. Things in my life have been chaotic and upsetting over the past week and a half, following a cancer diagnosis and surgery for my sweet kitty cat, Samson. I've been on an emotional roller coaster, with good days and bad, but both magnified to near manic proportions. Yesterday was really rough, but I was able to deal with it by working on a spread in the journal. This project, as it turns out, is very therapeutic.

Also? Maite's journal may just be the coolest thing I've ever seen. Doing my best to contribute to it accordingly and keep the artistic vibe going.
