Grand Openings

How do you plan for a new month? a new day? a fresh start?

As you write your monthly goals and action plan, use photos and prompts to EMBRACE

  • who you are right now in this moment

  • who you are becoming as you open up and welcome whatever may come your way.

Today….

  • I am grateful to be…

  • I celebrate…

  • I want to remember that I am…

I know I am. I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises.

Come What May…

  • Like a flower opening to sunshine, I want to….

  • I will embrace…

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time. A schedule is a mock-up of reason and order—willed, faked, and so brought into being; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living.

Art Journaling

I’m starting this month by drawing and dreaming in my art journal, painting pictures to celebrate what is and to envision what may be. Today I’m a golden girl splashing warm rays of yellow on watercolor paper to build bold backgrounds. I’m adding layers of color and texture with words, phrases, and quotes.

In the process of play, I want to EMBRACE this marigold month of May.

It’s the start of a new chapter. I can’t wait to see what unfolds.

There are no rules for what to use to create art journal pages. My favorite places to shop for mixed media supplies are Ranger Ink, Joggles, and Blitsy. Here’s what I unpack for mixed media projects:
