I have gotten embarassingly little done in my journal this week. Or even last week (although I did do a mini journal). But here is my check in regardless.
So, let's see... where to start... I know I mentioned this last week - but Kari and I journaled together after our Firestarter Session while I was there visiting her. We went though the Lifestyle Map in the Style Statement book and looked at each section in depth as it pertaied to ourselves. Very enlightening to do this with someone who knows you. Here are our spreads together:
and here is mine as you are used to seeing my spreads:
I did a page spread on week 2 of my Unravelling e-course (see details further down in post), but week 3 is still not finsihed, and week 4 - seems like it just started but is almost to a close and I did not journal about it at all yet.
I also have been practicing my lettering in a moleskine that I have been carrying around with me. I also use it to jot down notes and thought, ideas and whims. And I have been doing my Unravelling exercises in it. So I thought I would share a shot of it so this week does not see so lame!
So, as I just mentioned, I am taking a wonderrrrful e-course called Unravelling lead by Susannah Conway, and one of the exercises we were asked to do last week was to make a collage that represents your life. I used a spread in my journal, and this is what I came up with.
It was a lot of fun, and I love comparing it to a self portrait collage we had to make from magazines in one of the few art classes I have ever taken - almost exactly 11 years ago. I have nothing left for the classes but this, and have had it hanging somewhere everywhere I have lived the past 11 years (and only 5 of those years have been creative for me - so it was like I was hanging onto something I KNEW was there but buried) Here is a photo of it:
Notice they both say "Hope" in the same place?! How crazy is that!
