Just an Ordinary Day

Detail from an unfinished page
in my art journal.

Hello, friends!

Things have been busy here, and I feel that I am still settling in and working on establishing a bit of a routine. Recently I've been spending quite a bit of time at the library - only a few blocks away! The week before last I checked out seven fat college/altered art books! Here are some more things that I have been doing:
  • Reading this book. It was a random book I pulled off a shelf at the library, and I liked it so much I took it home with me. It is simply written but incredibly straight forward, offering quite a bit of practical, helpful, interesting advice on improving one's happiness.
  • Working on my very first one of these! I'm not sure when it will be finished yet, but I'm very excited about it!
  • Lots and lots of walking, college re-applications, and job searchings.
  • Figuring out what sorts of photos to take in this concrete jungle!
  • Thinking about this art contest.
  • Exploring, growing, and discovering in my art journal. The paint is thick, the pages textured, and my heart is very happy!
  • As you may have seen in my last post, I added quite a few more things to my Etsy shop! Perhaps your mama would like a journal (or some original photographs) for Mother's Day?
Oh, yes, and a big celebration on My Peacetree is coming soon. Can you guess what it is? There will be some exciting things happening that you won't want to miss - do stay tuned!

I hope your corner of the world is shining with beauty, and that you are happy, inspired, and full of love!

Having a library nearby is such a blessing, isn't it? You sound like one busy woman with all of your projects. I love that. I hope you're enjoying your new city and exploring some too! And good luck with job hunting and college things.
