An update on my new and changing life.
I have been doing research, creating workshop plans, and just about ready to put out my schedule and descriptions of the different classes I’ll be offering.
I’m will be returning to my SoulCollage® workshops and am planning several more including Vision and Mood boards, Journaling, Art Journaling, and Self-Care ideas.
In my research, I found and read a lot about different “Mood” Boards. I hadn’t really heard of them until I spotted them on Pinterest. Oh, what a wonderful world that is! So many ideas from women who have shared their passions and creativity with the rest of the world. How blessed we are! Congratulations to them for following their heart and taking that first step.
Anyway, I wanted to share something I did a couple of days ago. I created a mood board with photos I’ve taken or found on-line. I will be offering a workshop on creating one with your own hands, but I wanted to try something a bit different. It was truly a wonderful experience taking my time and putting it together. I look at it, and say,”Yes, that’s me”. The word I had chosen was “Listen”. It came to me when I saw the picture of the fairy sitting in a carpet of blue flowers. She is listening to the sounds of the forest, the birds, the water, and to the universe. From there, it was easy to find other pictures that spoke “listen” to me.
Anyone could do this if you allowed yourself some time, chose a subject or mood, and to dig deep down in your soul and find pictures that speak to you. I used Powerpoint as I think it is the easiest to use. I turned my creation into a .jpg, and now it is my desktop! So lovely to look at every day!
I plan on journaling about my “Listen” board, too. Try doing one yourself. I’d love to see it.
