Self Care

Monday, kids back to school, hubby to work and I have a morning session for Crystal Healing.

It’s been lovely and sunny today, it’s obvious it’s September as there is a nice crisp start to the mornings. I love autumn, the changing seasons, the crisp mornings & warm afternoons and the slow turn of the leaves from green to yellow as the garden slows down and stores it’s energies to survive the winter. I know that feeling, that hunkering down and taking care of yourself to survive a tough time. My crystal session is very much about finding that hunkered down version of me and letting it resurface in a safe environment.

Anyway, art today has been a bit limited, I have completed a journal page, it’s not the sort of thing I normally do and I don’t know what it represents, but it’s the sort of thing I see all over Instagram so I guess it’s okay.

I also have taken a Karen Campbell class from the Fun Fab Drawing Club to draw in One Point Perspective sketchy/urban style and watercolour. This is an A6 postcard. I think I might look into making my own version so that I can make prints and get this sort of thing on my Etsy store.

I picked the runner beans and prepared them in to three batches, two for the freezer and one for tea. I also picked the last of the rhubarb and made a huge rhubarb and apple crumble, we had it with custard and everyone was very full at the end of the meal but very happy 🙂 Proper English comfort food.

I don’t have much to say today, Its been a nice day of healing and taking care of myself as well as looking after the family.

  1. When I was in the 6th grade, our art teacher was a middle aged woman, Ms. Emily. She taught us something similar, I think. We had to draw two lines and then draw trees along those lines. The edge closest to us had larger trees and as we went down the line they got smaller. It was to teach us depth and perspective I think.
    But at the time, I became obsessed with drawing them. And then one day, I just stopped. I haven’t thought about that in a quite a long time.
    I love the card you did for the perspective class. I think it would be great to have some printed to sell. I do like your neutral journal page too.

  2. I wasn’t too sure what runner beans were, but now I know – oh my I haven’t eaten them in ages, my mum makes a mean curry and pickle out of them. I see a lot of those journal pages on Instagram too, and I would love to try, but feel like I would need to build up a big collection of supplies to try. I like yours – I think if you liked it and were in flow or just needed to – then it 100% counts!

I would love it if you would leave me a comment or two about what you've just read!
