I have another Teen’s Art Journal Jam in Ladner this Friday at 3 pm if you know of any tweens or teens who might like to attend.
You don’t need much to art journal – just some favourite pens, some cardstock or a journal book and you’re good to go. This time I will bring along my twinkling H2O’s so some of the kids can try them out.
I’m off soon to visit a friend who is in hospice with a brain tumour. It’s very difficult to see a dear friend who not too long ago was climbing trees, kayaking, swimming and hiking –( in case you’re thinking she’s a kid she’s not – she’s 61 years old but has the heart and spirit of a child) rapidly declining. When you think of what my friend is going through it certainly puts all of our petty grievances and worries into perspective. Being in the moment and enjoying the little things like the birds feeding at the feeder, the green sprouts pushing up through the dirt and a hot cup of herbal tea are truly where the joy resides.
I feel a journal page coming on – not sure how it will show up.
I apologize for not blogging on Monday – my schedule was thrown off as i had a super early morning Speech to deliver at Toastmasters and my day got away with me and i completely forgot to blog. Sorry about that.
See you on Friday!
Love, Violette xo
