Hi everyone! I've been missing this blog and all of you, and it's oh so good to be back!
I look back at the summer and how many projects I was trying to juggle and realize that it was a bit too much - I don't know what I was thinking! I am prone to FOMO, and have a tendency to sign up for wayyyyy too much. (anyone with me on that?) It was a good learning experience, and I'm trying to be better about it. Here's a quick update...
I finished the 100-day Project! I got derailed a few times, so it took me a little longer than it should have; but I got back on track and I'm really proud of myself for that. It was inspiring to create alongside so many other people, committed to this goal of doing something (anything they choose) for 100 days in a row. I made some new friends, along the way, and I will definitely do it again next year!!! Here's a pic of my 100th Art Journal Page for the project...
You can see all 100 pages here, or by searching #100daysofjournalingforshelley on instagram.
I did not, on the other hand, finish the "Index-Card-A-Day" project. It was going at the same time as the 100 day project, and I realized doing both was too difficult.
Mixed Emotions - (the online art journaling workshop that I teach with Marit Barentsen), finished up on October 8th. It was an awesome group of students - enthusiastic and so supportive of one another; and I really feel good about how it went! Lots of fun and lots of beautiful art was created! Thank you so much to Marit and all of the students for making it so special!
So, what have you all been up to? Let me know in the comments - I'd love to hear!
Hugs from chilly Minnesota!
