Hola gorgeous goddess!!!
So I’ve been holed up in my studio creating…
and by “holed up” I mean… sneaking in ten minutes here and there where I can… oh look! Ostara is settled! I’m just going to sneeeeeeeeak off! Oh hi crawling baby! You want more cuddles? Okay! You’re off again! Yay! Create! Oh! You’re baaack again! Hello!
Multiplied by 1000. Also distracted by:
- a much needed nap (for two)
- a trip to BigDubs (aka Big W -anyone else call it that?) for Much Needed Stationery Supplies. And more large salad bowls. I eat every single meal out of a big bowl. It’s my thang.
- an afternoon date with Starry – a stroll up the street to visit Akiah, persuade self I need Diana Cooper’s 2012 meditation CD. Also go bookshelf hunting. I adore bookshelf hunting!
So that’s what “holed up in my studio” means for this mama. Life is either more balanced or bonkers, depending on how I feel in that particular moment. Hee hee!
Anywaysies… the important part is the creating!
I did get to the studio!!!
So project #1 I’ve been working on is THE FOLDER OF LEONIE.
It’s like a creating, dreaming & journalling centre for me.
One I can tote around me wherever I go.
I love love love using ring binders & turning them into scrap journals. I made a video of my pregnancy scrap journal here.
I decorated the cover with some turquoise swirly contact paper, a print of one of my own paintings & a buffalo postcard from RedBubble (I’m newly addicted to them… have you checked out the amazing artists on there??). I used 3d metallic paint to put a queen’s crown on my goddess girl to remind me of my own sovereignty & queen. And the buffalo? I feel so safe and guided seeing my beloved buffalo on there. They are my sacred totem, and I get teary whenever I see them.
Inside, I’ve got three sections.
The first is a bunch of looseleaf ruled paper.
I keep notes from books on aromatherapy & herbs & nutrition.
I write notes from acupuncture & naturopathy & healing appointments.
And I also journal, write lists & notes & dreams I’ve had… I talk about the hard parts & I also write letters to myself from the wise older woman inside me.
Beautiful hand modelling by Miss Ostara Light. She has SUCH a gift, no?
AND at face modelling too.
Okay, baby distracted.
The next part are blank white pages that I draw with ink pen…
on this page I’m working on a Goddess Guidebook redesign. (OOOHEY!)
And the third part is my own 2011 Creating my Goddess Year workbook that I’m filling out.
I’ve also got my 2010 one in there all filled out… it’s really lovely to look back at it & see what blossomed into fruition!
And here’s a photo of my very full studio desk… filled with my projects. At the moment my long studio desk is being shared by my love & me. He’s studying Psychology & is really into zen pictures… thus the brain puzzle & balancing stone picture.
(He’s way way cute!)
AND here’s the two pens I constantly keep in one of the pockets of my Folder of Leonie.
The Papermate 4 ball (in the special colours edition: aqua, fuscia, lime & purple) & Uniball eye waterproof ink pen.
Okay my darlinghearts…
So that’s my Folder of Leonie.
I so adore it… my own little sanctuary & haven. I think I’ll add a section for inspiring photos as well.
I think I’m going to be filling out my workbook through January as well as I get clarity about what I’m wanting.
Oh! And if you are filling out your 2011 workbook, I’d love to feature some pics of your workbook pages – just email me! And if you’ve got your own Folder, I would soooo love to see it!!!
Have an absolooodely precious day my love… I hope you can get some studio moments today!!!
