Today for my Christmas Journal I wrote a letter to santa. Yea, I know, it's probably a little late, but you never know:) I love this oil painting print by the artist George Hinke in the book Jolly Old Santa Claus. At work the other night we had to withdraw a copy we had of the book because it was in bad shape. I knew I could use the prints in my art and this one is just perfect! I love working at a library:)I know I've shown you these cones a million times, but today they are going out to Lowell's therapists and interns. I can't wait!!!
Also wanted to share a book I got at the library last night, Living Artfully by Sandra Magsamen. Awesome book! Totally inspiring to make your life a work of art:) She expands the concept of "art" beyond our normal limitations. She discusses how living creatively can take on so many meanings. I've just started it, but I already bought my own copy. It's that good! Check out her web site too. So much fun stuff there.
It made me think about how I feel like keeping this blog is truly nurturing my artful living. It helps me to find time to play, to make some sort of art, without judgement. Just to throw a piece of me out there to the universe and share a part of my heart. I love it!
