Hi friends! I hope you’re having good weeks- I know I am! I wanted to share with you the first half of the journal I’ve been working on based on Gala Darling’s Radical Self Love Bible School prompts.
Radical Self Love and I have a complicated relationship, but working in this journal and focusing on things I love and having a chance to do some guided introspection has been really fun and worthwhile.
Do we not love these bubble letter stickers?! I got them at Michael’s, and I now can’t find them anywhere online but I love them and I bet you can find them at your local Michaels/ craft store.
This is a quote from an Annie Dillard essay, Living Like Weasels, that I cannot stop thinking about. The dancer on the left is from Frankie, the dancer on the right is from an ABC Carpet & Home ad. The garden behind them is from an Australian interior design magazine. The bodega up the block sells the best magazines and they’re all from Australia or New Zealand. I don’t understand why, but I’ll take it.
This page wound up being one of my favorites. I think I just like writing on pretty backgrounds. I went back and put glitter on the sneakers with Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, which, let me tell you, is the absolute best. I don’t love this page but I feel really strongly about sharing our “crafting fails,” so here’s something I feel uncomfortable sharing with you! I just don’t think it’s that pretty, but the process of making it helped me learn more about my process.
Have a great rest of the week, sunshines!
