In this season, I am working through Get Messy’s season of Happy. Prompt one began last week. As a paper crafter I have most tools on hand, except a journal to keep my stuff, so I picked up a Mixed Media Journal from Canson.
Here’s what I created
Here’s the story:
To wind down, I will imagine that I’m going on an overseas trip and I’ll plan what I need. Sounds different, but its completely relaxing. One evening I was ready to call it a night and I realized I couldn’t even enjoy the depths of my imagination due to worrying about practical things like putting the mail on hold, taking care of the utilities, or finding a house sitter — all to the point of becoming stressed! — what? Huh? really? Folks – when your ability to imagine is cluttered by worry then its really time to stop, find quiet and peace, breathe. All this to say that the first prompt lead me to create the picture and write the quote.
