Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. It’s been a while since I blogged but I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Happy New Year and to thank each and every one of you for your support and inspiration, both here and on social media.
It’s been quite a year with some fun opportunities presenting themselves to Art & Whimsy. I look forward to being able to share more about them at a later date, so stay tuned.
For 2017 I’ve decided to take part in the Joggles Art Journal Adventure, which is a prompt based, weekly art journal challenge. it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and easy to keep up with.
You can join the 2017 Joggles Art Journal Adventure Facebook group for more info and also check out the 2016 prompts on the Joggles blog.
A few of other things I’m excited about doing in 2017 is digging into these books that I received for Christmas from Patrick.
If you follow me on social media you probably know that I’m a huge fan of Flow Magazine. Well Flow came out with their first ever Mindfulness Workbook! it’s an activity book that revolves around different mindfulness questions and activities. And of course, in true Flow style, it’s full of pretty paper, stickers and gorgeous Flow artwork. You can find it at Barnes and Noble or directly from Flow.
The Flow Book for Paper Lovers is another book I’m eager to dig into. It’s basically an entire book filled with wonderfully illustrated paper, stickers and posters. It’s just perfect for us paper crafters and mixed media artists. This one you can sometimes find at your local Barnes and Noble but if you don’t come across it, they can order it for you. You can also order it from Flow.
The third book is 52 Lists for Happiness. It’s a book for “list lovers everywhere to discover the keys to their own unique happiness and bring more joy and balance into their lives.” . If 52 Lists for Happiness is anything like it’s precursor, The 52 Lists Project it’s sure to become a fun part of my year.
I’m excited to ring in 2017 and see what it has in store for me. I hope you’ll continue to follow along in my adventures and maybe even join in on a few! I wish you the Happiest New Year ever. Let’s get out there and create new memories!
