This month's prompt:
Journaling Challenge: Gratitude. What are you grateful for? What aspects of your life are you thankful for, that you might be overlooking while being busy?
Art Challenge: Use visual examples for at least three things you’re grateful for. Photos/doodles/magazine cut outs/stickers/anything. SHOW us your gratitude!
Details: On the first page I actually cut out a piece of paper bag and ran it through my printer. That was a personal touch and takes me back to a childhood memory of gratitude and Thanksgiving. On the right side I used a large crosshatch rubberstamp and adhered three small B+W photos. One of Keith, one of me and one I took of the sunlight filtering through the trees during a walk. The "THIS" stamp was an obvious choice. Those three things are it for me right now. My fella, nature, and another year of life on this earth. I filled up the following two pages with all the things for which I am grateful right now. Letting it flow out of me felt right. I might have even had a tiny happy weep as I reflected on the words and what they meant to me.
