Root: 30 Day Journal Project (Update)

Well, we are about halfway through this month's 30 Day Journal Project over at Lisa Sonora Beam's place. This journey continues to remind me to slow down, and go gently. I need that- it resonates within me. Making time for an Art Journal, is something that I have wanted to do for awhile. Although this is not just an art endeavor, but a true journaling journey, where expression is whatever you need it to be. I find writing and creating to be therapeutic. It recreates us as we give ourselves over to it. God shows up, in the process, as always, and I feel this amazing oneness with Him, even in the scribbling and smearing of pen, and paints.

Here, I will share the pages of my first 15 Days. So thankful that my dear friend Stacy, of I Carried a Watermelon, prompted me to check out this journey! 

Well, there you have it: Days 1-15

I will post days 16-31 the first week in February. 

Happy creating, friends. Just absolutely enjoyable fun!

It keeps the creative juices flowing. Remember it doesn't have to be Rembrandt to be good. You just have to enjoy the process. Then it becomes special, inspiring and good! 

Good? Good. Not perfect, but good enough for me. 

For more Journaling inspiration, visit Lisa's Blog. And as a note, many others are writing MORE, since writing is my thang, I actually am playing with the artsy side more. Whatever comes. Happy whatever comes, Friends! Go create something...a blog post, journal entry, painting, book chapter, a pot of soup-anything!

Creating is good for the soul, and it's all good!
