I hope the Christmas preparations are all going well for you all. I’ve almost ground to a halt, I only have a few things left to do, but my enthusiasm has waned and it will be a last minute rush again as it always is.
I am astonished that I had to get to the age of 56 before I realised how I feel is only partially influenced by external things and I can actually make a decision about the kind of day I will have. So I am choosing to be happy. Of course I won’t always be successful but I am going to give it my best shot. Well they do say that practice makes perfect, so I am sure the more I practice being happy the easier it’s going to get.
Please don’t get me wrong I don’t have any big issues in my life that make me unhappy, it’s just that I can be a bit of a moaner at times and I am beginning to really appreciate that everything is so much better when I stay in the positive zone.
This is the second spread in my small 6×6 journal. The background is textured gesso with some acrylic and Inktense on the top. I used little scraps of paper and some scraps from old books, which had been die cut and sprayed with Adirondak colorwash spray in plum. I wrote the words with my atyou spica lavender pen and edged the pages with Adirondak Bright Purple Twilight ink.
I just realised that two weeks today will be Christmas Day (I almost swore!) Oops I’d better get a move on!
See you soon
