Last year I read Melody Beattie’s Make Miracles in 40 Days, and actually did it, kept a gratitude journal for 40 days, not skipping a single day. I went on to have one of the most incredible months of my life. I have since fallen off that track, a year later, but been “thinking” about doing it again. (Thinking gets me into trouble. Right action is where its at for me)…
So acting instead, I flew into the studio, with only a few hours to spare, and created an gratitude journal by collaging the cover of one of the 34 blank Moleskin journals I have lying around. (I bought a ton of Moleskins on sale, “thinking” I was going to be art journaling everyday for the rest of my life. Haven’t quite gotten there yet.In any event, I only had a few hours to make this, and for me to start this journal, I wanted a cool cover that would be inspirational to look at everyday.
A few hours is sometimes all it takes, I work best under the gun.
