I am so excited – you could almost call it scared! LOL We have women from all over the country coming to mini-camp and boy, are we going to have fun! In the meantime, my studio is stripped bare and the goodies are stacked in the driveway waiting to be loaded up. My intention is to blog directly from camp, but connections, firewalls and passwords may interfere with that. Stay tuned!
We had our third Art Journaling Club meeting Friday night. All of our members are women that work hard at demanding and diverse callings in addition to managing a homelife better than most.
Two of us currently live at the clubhouse so we had an advantage, but all of us began the evening pretty worn out from the week. So after a sluggish beginning to what was supposed to be fun – we had a pow wow, took a collection and sent out for some beer. Just the thought of the beer revived us somewhat and even before delivery the art journaling was going much better.
We came to the conclusion that it is not easy to shift from one side of the brain to the other without practice. AND that making that shift is more rejuvenating than a week-long vacation.
It is not easy to add a new commitment to an already full calendar, but we came away from our evening of art and connection, refreshed and revived. We will persevere and make meeting and making art together a priority and we will do what it takes to enjoy ourselves fully.
