I'm not young anymore, on the outside. But I am on the inside. I have a LOT to learn. Allyson is about the age of my daughter! But she's gained a lot of wisdom along the way.
I don't want to say a lot about the classes, read about them on her website (link above) There are several classes so far, Be Your Own Inspiration, 30 days of Journal Prompts, and the brand-new Coloring Made Meaningful.
One of the things in the main class was making a gratitude journal. I scrambled some of her ideas and some of my own. I had purchased a Happy Planner (another story!!!) and ordered the small disks by mistake. So I made a little gratitude journal with 6 x 6 paper. I am LOVING it and have plans for more for the rest of the year.
|the cover. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for|
One day I just couldn't think about ANYTHING to be thankful for. Then it dawned on me how much I appreciate having seasons.
My fourth child's birthday was last week. I am VERY thankful for him!
I found this quote online. It says it all. Even on those days when all I see is dark depression, I sure have stuff to be thankful for.
And there's always Winnie the Pooh. ❤
So I have some more 6x6 paper on order.I see that I'll fill up winter before winter is over, since we've not exactly really begun. I just decided to start Christmas early this year. I need all the encouragement I can get.
Another thing I found for journal prompts was "The Ungame" at the thrift store. I'm getting a good collection of stuff. And used some already.
AND... while shopping for a coloring book, I found this. I've colored several so far and included one in a birthday card already.
I am now rich in supplies for creating. Several new coloring books, gel pens, and markers. I've made a few background pages, and hope to get out my gelli plate one of these days too. I also found a journal that needs some decoupage on the cover. So there are no excuses to stop being creative.
