I am grateful………..

This is the one of the backgrounds i created for my Junk Journal.  I love creating grungy – graffiti-ish backgrounds!  I thought today i would do a simple post on what i was grateful for – this is a good prompt to use in your Journal on a regular basis:

  • my family – especially grandbaby Sammy
  • the magic cottage and colourful garden in the backyard
  • Mr. G and his infinite patience and blossoming creativity
  • my friends
  • the frogs in the nearby park
  • my tree i visit several times a week
  • my online friends i have never met in real life but who i feel so connected to
  • kayaking and being out in nature
  • going on vacation (on Saturday) to Desolation Sound!  Yay!
  • EFT (emotional freedom technique)
  • artistic ability and the gift of being able to share it
  • my book Journal Bliss
  • the kindness of strangers
  • paper arts magazines like Cloth Paper Scissors, Artful Journaling, Somerset Studios etc.
  • art books, how to books
  • Sunshine on my face
  • walking barefoot
  • quinoa salad
  • the infinite inspiration that can be found on the net
  • little cute facial nuances
  • quiet
  • gyspy kings
  • supertramp
  • dancing in the backyard
  • my new hand painted silk jacket
  • having a creative problem to solve – that gives me juice!
  • sleeping better
  • my new earthbed and pad – thank you Bernie – i’m having fun “earthing” !
  • oh….lots more……i’ll probably keep adding things as i think of them!

Now it’s your turn! xo

Here is one more thing i am grateful for…….all of the wonderful bloggers out there who have been kind enough to feature me on their blogs.  Nellie Jacobs featured me yesterday on Igniting your Imagination .  Thanks so much Nellie for featuring me! xo

    One of the gifts I am grateful for, Violette, is you and your awesome artwork. Having fun with the techniques I learned in the Bohemian Bliss Workshop (not quite finished creating my book yet but I did create the cutest knitting tote that I tagged for you on FB). You add such joy to the world, and as a social worker, I love that you work with the young moms and others on art projects and creativity. Thanks for being you!

    Hi Violette,
    I recently participated in an online art journaling course and absolutely loved it. I found it really freed me up as an artist.
    My dear friend suggested you “Journal Bliss” book to me, so off I popped to Amazon and purchased it.
    Your book even came away on holidays with me! lol
    I’ve just become a follower and love visiting your blogspot.
    Your latest post about the camp sounds like a very caring, fun loving place for the young Mum’s to be.
