I will admit that I am getting a head start on day one by starting to write my day one post the day before. I have a long week of admin ahead with a massive deadline on Friday and honestly, I knew if I didn’t get a head start on something, that this would be the first thing to go and fall off my list - yet it’s the only thing on it right now that I really want to engage with - so rather than stop before I even start, here I am!
I don’t know if we are going to have a prompts list so I am going to ramble on a little about what I have going on with me right now. I have been very much scaled back or pared down for the past 8 weeks or so. I have been struggling a lot with anxiety and having a lot on my plate has been adding to that stress so I have scaled back everything to its barest of bones so that I might be able to get my head back on straight.
That seems to have worked but of course the list of things that I am “supposed to” or “should be” doing is waiting for me like some kind of monster I dreamt in a nightmare and then manifested in my life. So what I am doing is adding 2 projects back on to my list. One is to work on my oracle deck. I have it all planned out and in a fun twist I decided to make it all digitally using elements of my art to create it, so I am very excited about that and the other is a project making essentially fauxdoris / midoris / travellers notebooks but artist- style, so the covers are board, there is texture and glazing and all sorts of yummy stuff with plenty of room to add collage fodder and inserts to journal on. I have made a few and a friend suggest I do something with them, so that is going to be my next thing!
I guess that is me for today!
So I shall sign off.
Happy Monday and Day one of the Blog Along for April!
