Warm Up Beginning Lesson Life Book 2016

The main lesson for the first week was to choose a word and the title was Happy Traveler. I of course chose the crow and my little dragon as my happy travelers, my word for this year is serenity. I need to learn how to become quieter, to pause my busy life some days.

Week two brought us two more lessons. One from Tam and another from Ivy Newport. Tam’s was a zentangled butterfly, leaving the angst behind while reaching for the sun. Tam wrote her words on her butterfly trail, I wrote them down and then covered them up with a pretty flowery trail .. they are gone, gone, gone.

The main lesson with Ivy Newport brought us lots of glitter and gold and some soul searching. I laid down a woman reaching for her goals, ready to go through the door and see the pretty butterflies in her world. I sometimes need reminding to search for those butterflies each and every day.

Week three gave us a lesson with Melody Ross. We painted a woman hugging a box with all the things we have accomplished to remind us that we are awesome just as we are.
