in and out
hi friends, i know that i have been in and out these last few weeks. my family is finally feeling better this week after fighting nasty colds for the last two weeks. so this week i have been determined to make up for lost time and hit the ground running. i have been taping videos like CRAZY and uploading videos and trying to get the ball rolling for my e-course. i have been kicking my butt into action. it is difficult because the only time i have during the day for taping is during naptime. that is if i don’t have to go grocery shopping or clean or whatever else needs to get done. doesn’t something always come up? so i have just been determined this last week to really get moving on my videos. i have been neglecting other things in the process including the blog, my etsy shop and emails. if i owe you an email, please excuse me right now.
instead of just taping one technique in a video, i am taping the whole page from start to finish. i think that is what is amazing about my e-course and something that you just won’t get from my in person classes. it is so difficult to teach a class where you do a page from beginning to end. plus i find that when i am in front of people, it can be so difficult to tap into my intuition. a camera, not so intimidating. so i have been REALLY stretching myself with these videos to make sure that i am finishing my pages. i want this class to be authentic. i want to show you how i use techniques in the context of actually finishing a page. i use so many different techniques to finish one page. the biggest challenges that my students have had in the past in actually finishing a page. so i hope to model this for all of my students in this e-course. i want you to be confident in completing an art journal page and love it when you are finished.
other things that i am including in my videos is a vulnerability of what is going on in my life. i want to show you how i use journaling and art to deal with the stresses that are every day. because ultimately, i want this class to help you get through your issues, depression, heartache, brokenness with art. i have seen the power of art in my own life, and i want you to experience it in yours.
so please excuse me if i continue to be in and out. i am working my tail off to get this finished.
