May is my Birthday month and as I move toward 49 and my 50th year I have a lot of plans for this month.
|Out with the old and in with the New|
I’m starting fresh with new journals and sketch books. I work with 2 journals. An A5 size that I keep at home, use for morning pages and at when I’m at my desk and an A6 notebook that I can carry in my handbag. I download the ‘good stuff’ on a regular basis to writing and inspiration files. I’m looking forward to drawing and designing a lot more starting this month and so have replaced my A6 carry everywhere sketchbook to an A5 size. Another thing I treated myself too was a box of crayons, inspired by a new Spoonflowerchallenge for Crayon Drawn Monsters and my wanting to reproduce some of the early pieces created on my creative journey. I intend to have a post about that later on in the month.
Out in the world wide community I’m joining Zoe atSozoWhatDoYouKnowBlogspot on the Me Made May Challenge.
I, Catherine McAtier(http://catherinemcatier.blogspot.co.uk/ ), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear at least one garment or accessories made or modified by me each day for the duration of May 2014' (not the bracelets I always wear). I am challenging myself to show my work - and be proud of it.
I’m sure there’s still time for you to sign up, or just join in. I’m not one for ‘shoulds’ but we really all ‘should’ share our creativity with the world and show it where we can.
I’m also taking part in Mindful in May, making a contribution to Charity Water and sticking with my Daily Meditation. It really does make a difference.
And I’m looking forward to getting my May Full Moon Dream Board put together with Jamie Ridler. May is truly shaping up to be a Blooming Lovely Month.
All that and I’m getting to work on my book/s – more about that one later.
Here’s to a Very Happy May.
