FRIDAY DIGS (later) 

This week I started an Art Journal. I purchased an ecourse from A Beautiful Mess, picked up some supplies, and dove in. I’ve only done an intro page so far, but I’m digging the process. I feel like it’s waking up pieces of my brain that go unused after weeks on a computer… (read more)
