It's hard to believe 2014 is almost over! I've been enjoying a little time off, and getting back into a more consistent workout schedule. I've decided that I'm going to have to do my workouts before work, so that's my new goal. I have also been working on some of my projects from Brave Girls Club, Soul School. Here are some pics from that. They send these cool patches, so I decided to get some iron transfer heat bond to iron them on to my canvas journal I made along with a couple of pins they sent me.
I also made a cool pendant they sent using the "see beauty" print out. Used a little sparkle Mod Podge to glue it together. LOVE IT!
I also went crazy on my art studio door with my neighbor and stepdaughter and her friends. We painted words, some positive, some negative...just thoughts we were feeling about what it can mean to be a woman. I painted over it and I'm now going to cover it with some positive messages. I again used some print outs from my Soul School kits, and will continue to add to it. A very fun and liberating exercise. I have done this before in some of my art journals too. It's a great way to get some things off your chest and then "start over", turn it into something inspiring.
Lastly, I have really been focusing on being more grateful and giving and Finding the Good. I felt compelled to reach out and inspire some women I know but putting together some cards for them. Again, part of the Soul School kit that I put my own little twist into. (I like to change it a little to make it my own) Here is one I made. There have been a few days where I have felt really down lately, and I made a conscious effort to be an encouragement to someone else in some way, and it's AMAZING how much better I felt! I encourage you ALL to try it!
Have a Happy New Years beautiful friends! See you next year!!
