A few ideas to put that blank journal to use πŸ“”βœοΈ

Hey Reader!

If you're anything like me, you probably have at least one blank notebook lying around somewhere. Maybe it's a cheap composition notebook or maybe it's a leather-bound journal with gorgeous, creamy paper. Either way, you bought it and set it on your shelf waiting for the perfect time.

Now is that time πŸ’ͺ

Thankfully, there are a MILLION things you can do with your empty journal.

Here are just a few ideas:

  1. Take notes for all your recipe attempts so you can improve next time you make a dish.
  2. Plan out your dream vacation so you have all your research done when the lock downs lift.
  3. Create a dream journal and keep track of all of those fun dreams and maybe even learn a little bit about yourself in the process.
  4. Draw out your garden plan, record planting and watering dates, and track your garden's growth.

I know it's tempting to keep hoarding all your beautiful journals for the right time.

You want to use them for something special -- I get it!

But life is short.

There is no time like the present.

Anything special you have set aside -- bath bombs, candles, a particularly luxurious pair of socks (hey, I don't judge) -- right now is the time to bust them out and do something kind for yourself.

So if you're nervous about using a journal that you've been saving and you need someone to tell you that it's okay, then consider this your permission slip. Write, draw, letter, record, scrapbook, and doodle to your heart's content.

Allow yourself to make imperfect pages and be nice to yourself. You deserve it πŸ₯°

Do you ever sit down to paint and feel immense pressure to make this piece different? Make it mean something? Make it special somehow? I recently discovered a funny little mindset that steered my artistic growth – and hindered it in major ways. I realized that when I sat down to create, I felt like I needed to come up with everything right then and there. The concept. The colors. The composition. Every single thing had to be fresh right now if I wanted to make a nice painting. But the other...

One of the most common struggles I hear from people in this community is a lack of consistency. People have a tough time making time for their art and letting creativity be a regular part of their lives. It’s hard, when you have a life full of work, family, friends, domestic chores, and so much more, to squeeze in those habits and routines that mean so much. It’s interesting to see how art, expression, and creativity are the first to get tossed overboard when life gets hectic. And it always...
