A handful of people have asked what I have been creating lately.
I'm knitting a new purse.
Knitting is good therapy for me.
I have to slow down.
I have to accept process.
There is NO instant gratification in knitting.
One stitch at a time is the only way I will get to the end.

For many years, I have been intrigued by art journaling. It's fun. It's therapy. And there is no wrong way.
For many years, I have been intrigued by art journaling. And it always made me angry. What are the cool pens, the right pens, the pens you can't afford...the wrong paper, the crappy paper, this technique...that technique! No. I'd throw my soul into an internal arms-crossed-eyes-closed-head-turned to-the-side pout. "Humph! No. I WON'T play!"
Friday, a coworker was kind enough to show me her latest art journaling book.
I was inspired!
"Hey, I wanna play, too!"
I did! I played.
