Art Journal Magic

Dear Friends, I have some exciting news!! I've been gearing up & pouring my heart into a new project: An art journaling class called "Art Journal Magic!" I'll be teaching it locally @ "Art and Soul Studio." The lovely owner Bonnie just finished revamping her entire store. It's a fusion of Spiritual / Metaphysical and Art. It's really amazing how much it's changed in just the short period from when I first visited a month or two ago. It's a perfect space to hold a sacred journaling venture. I feel blessed. I'll be using a mash up of foto-transfers, paint, paper, glue, heart, soul, intuition, words, and wine! My hope is that it will be a safe and sacred space and that we'll all let-loose... and magic will happen. What magic you say?! The kind of magic that happens when you just show up... and play.... and be.... and listen.... and receive... a vast pool of inner wisdom. A space where intuitions can be giddy... With a brave heart I share this.

Amazing and
Creates Magic

My soul is searching and open wide listening. 
Ready to hear and share and create a 

A'la mode de
Creative Exploration

.... I wish to spread magic... and healing.... and bold inner knowings.... (and maybe a little fairy dust!)

Dear All-Knowing-Wise-Spirit, I also wish to cast out a blessing to this new venture... Right now as I type this, I feel butterflies and chills. I'd really love to dig up all I need for this, and conjure a healthy dose of brave! (Thank you.)
