My weekly journaling continues with the same format I've been using for almost two years. Daily highlights linked to my intentions are recorded on the left. And some sort of creative interpretation is entered on the right. This can be a collage, sketch, poem, or simply handwriting practice. Here's an updated page flip of my most recent entries.
From now until Halloween I'll be sharing different ways paper crafting and a little creativity can be used to decorate on a very small budget. I've always challenged myself to decorate for Halloween without spending much money. One year, I cut out tons of bat silhouettes from sheets of black construction paper. They were taped all over walls. People thought I was a genius. I think I spent a total of $5 and a few hours of my time. It can be done.
Let's kick things off this year with a handmade junk journal made from a cereal box. I'm calling it my "grimoire" because French words just have a way of adding a special patina to just about anything. This book will used to decorate my Witchy Workspace in October. What is a Witchy Workspace you ask? More to come on that. For now, here's what I've got for you this week.
Summer is over. Today is the Autumn Equinox. Mercury is no longer in retrograde and the wheel of the year turns to Mabon. In other words - It's Fall, Y'all. I am so happy.
Summer in Florida is downright miserable. To be honest, I often get the blues in August/September because the heat is so awful. In addition to heat, we have the rainy season. The sauna-like weather makes it difficult to be outside and do the things I love to do. This affects everything. My mood, productivity, and creativity all suffer.
I did manage to stick with journaling throughout the summer season. Here's a look at my weekly layouts over the past few weeks. How did you beat the summer heat this year?
